The 2018 CHS field hockey team will go down in school athletics history for their first-ever undefeated regular season. During their first playoff game against Gaithersburg Wednesday, Oct. 24, the Lady Coyotes maintained their pristine winning streak with a final score of 9-0.  

Senior captain Anna Bertrand was the lead scorer of the game with three goals. According to Bertrand, on previous teams, there was always the want to win but on this year’s team, there is so much more drive and motivation to actually win.

“Going into the game we were confident and not because of [Gaithersburg’s] record but because of our team and how much we all want to win,” Bertrand said.

Having made it to the state semifinals last season, the Lady Coyotes are fueled up to go even further this season. For senior captain Charlotte Pond, this season has already been the best of her four years on varsity, but she’s not letting her team stop there.

“I think the most important thing is always supporting my teammates and coming off the field knowing we played a good game, no matter what the outcome is,” Pond said.

Head coach Sissy Natoil has witnessed many of her players step up to be their best all season long. The coaching staff continues to set high expectations for their players to keep them focused and motivated. In turn, senior captains Bertrand, Pond, and Rachel Oh, and junior captain Joanna Yoo have helped create great chemistry among the team.

“This year’s team has been playing with a ‘no mercy’ mentality, and they are striving for excellence in every game and every outcome,” Natoli said.

The Lady Coyotes entered the playoffs after winning their division. They even made it into The Washington Post’s Top-10 Field Hockey Rankings from last week. In the next round of playoffs, the team will take on the Quince Orchard Cougars Oct. 29 for the second time after having defeated them 1-0 at home Sept. 28.

“We are proud of our players and all they have accomplished to this point,” said Natoli.
