Varsity Field Hockey
Varsity Field Hockey
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 regular participant in the NEPSAC (New England Prep School Athletic Conference) class A tournament. We also have many graduates 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.
Maura SullivanHead Coach At nobles since 1989
Coaching Philosophy: My goal is that the girls on the team will grow in confidence and in character throughout the season. I want them to realize that they are part of a program that has a rich history and a proud tradition. As part of that program, they have a responsibility to live up to those standards both as players and as people.
Coaching Tenure: Started coaching at Nobles in 1989. In addition to coaching the varsity field hockey team, I have coached various levels of basketball, lacrosse, and softball.
Playing Experience: I grew up playing field hockey, basketball and softball in Walpole and went on to play field hockey at Boston College.
