The Charter School of Wilmington’s field hockey squad is off to another hot start at 10-0. One of the reasons behind their success has been junior forward Morgan Lamey. So far this season, Lamey has posted 10 goals and 6 assists for the Force.
The Community News caught up with Morgan where she spoke about how she got her start playing field hockey, the team’s success and plans for the future.
Q: How did you get started playing field hockey?
A: Started my freshmen year, it was the first time I picked up a stick. My friends got me involved, they loved Coach Cindy (DePrisco), and they encouraged me to give it a shot. Luckily, I picked it up pretty easily.
Q: In high school most athletes have been playing their particular sport since they were very young. How has your experience been different and what have you learned in only a few years?
A: I came in with a wooden stick and these huge shin guards; they pulled me aside and taught me everything I know. I’ve learned so much. I played soccer forever and didn’t know too much about field hockey going in. But, Coach Cindy and the rest of the team have been great. We had a team sleepover kind of thing and the girls were so great, that’s when I knew I would love being a part of this team and playing the sport.
Q: The team is undefeated right now, what are the team’s goals for the rest of the season?
A: We would love to have an undefeated record. We’re going to do our best and hopefully that’s enough. We’re definitely going to give it our best, that’s for sure.
Q: Do you plan on attending college? Perhaps continuing your field hockey career at the university level?
A: I definitely plan on going to college. Playing is a possibility. I have no clue where I want to go, yet. Somewhere warm!
