The team fought hard throughout the game and never gave up.

The team finishes the history-making 2020 season with an 12-2 overall record and the program's third straight WPIAL title, and is the first Western PA field hockey team ever to advance to the PIAA semifinals.

Congratulations to Head Coach Betsy Gorse and the entire team on a phenomenal season!
