Twin State field hockey includes locals
GOFFSTOWN, N.H. — Four local standout seniors were selected to play for Vermont in the Twin-State Field Hockey game, which will be contested on Friday at 6 p.m. at St. Anselm College in Goffstown, N.H.
Three members of the Division II state champion Mount Abraham team were chosen: midfielders Casondra Dykstra and Evan Laurent and goalkeeper Chessley Jackman.
They will be joined by Tiger forward Grace Widelitz and help Vermont take on its New Hampshire counterparts.
Division I champion Bellows Falls will be well represented. BF Coach Bethany Coursen will lead the Vermont team, and Terriers Abigail Cravinho, Molly Kelly and Madison Streeter were selected. Otter Valley Coach Stacey Edmunds will assist Coursen.
Also selected for the team were Charleigh Carthy and Brianna Mayne from Burr & Burton; Caroline Desautels, Kate Hall, Hanako Memon and Odessa O’Brien from South Burlington; Essex’s Sarah Coulter and Hannah Neddo; Rice’s Lisa McNamara; St. Johnsbury’s Michaela Roy; Mount Mansfield’s Amelia Sanborn; and CVU’s Nora Weisman-Rowell.
New Hampshire leads the series 22-9-3, but in 2018 Vermont defeated the Granite State, 4-1, in a game hosted by the University of Vermont.
