The Nobles Field Hockey Program is rich in tradition. By fielding four teams (Varsity, Junior Varsity, Thirds and Middle school), we provide opportunities for a wide range of athletes to participate. Through our experienced and highly skilled coaching staff, we challenge athletes to push themselves and improve as players at all levels. The new turf field, which will be used primarily by the Field Hockey team in the fall, will enable the players to develop their skills and bring them to the next level. This will also help them to prepare for New England tournament play, which must be played on turf.
The Varsity Team
The Varsity Field Hockey team has had great success in recent years. The Independent School League is comprised of many of the top independent schools in the Boston area and offers a very competitive level of field hockey. The Nobles Varsity Team has established itself as one of the top teams in the ISL and has also become a frequent participant in the NEPSAC (New England Prep School Athletic Conference) class A tournament. We also have many former players who have gone on to play field hockey at the college level.
The field hockey program at Nobles is fortunate to have excellent coaches working with all levels. Athletes from all teams are coached by women who have college playing experience as well as varsity coaching experience. We understand that it is as important to put skilled coaches with younger, beginning players as it is to put them with experienced, varsity players.
The program is led by Maura Sullivan who has been the head Varsity field hockey coach at Nobles since the 1989 field hockey season. Her love of field hockey began when she was growing up in Walpole. A graduate of Walpole High School, she went on to Boston College, where she was a member of the field hockey team from 1985-1989. In addition to her coaching responsibilities, Maura is also the Dean of Faculty as well as a member of the math department.
