The team shows the spirit of a winner at the fall pep rally

Kingsway’s field hockey season ended with varsity’s 19-3 record, a South Jersey finals appearance  and an undefeated record for the JV team.

Kingsway’s varsity team started off the season with a 7-0 win against Williamstown, and it was clear from that day, they were going to crush the competition. Varsity’s next four games were complete shutouts, all thanks to Kingsway’s program that works hard to get their reputation. With twelve straight winning games, their streak was broken when they lost to Camden Catholic 3-2. Even though a loss gets to most teams, Kingsway bounced back and won the next four games. 

Another success was at Max Field Hockey Invitational at Villanova. It only selects “the best of the best” schools from around the country to compete against each other. Kingsway won both of their games against Academy of Notre Dame de Namur and Severna Park. 

With a record of 16-2, Kingsway got into NJSIAA Tournament, New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association, which is a huge accomplishment in itself. They won three games, making it all the way to the final round. Unfortunately, they lost to Eastern High School who is currently ranked number 1. It is a shame the season had to end after that, but it looks like a promising future for Kingsway’s field hockey team. 

Some of the highlights from this season include; Maddy Ferry making 300 saves, Tori Griffiths scoring 100 career goals, Kingsway ranking 5th in New Jersey and 18th in the country, Peyton Reiger making an official commitment to Temple, and Tori Griffiths doing the same for Liberty University. 

Overall, Kingsway’s field hockey team had an amazing, full season after the shutdown of last year’s season due to Covid-19. The talent in Kingsway’s players and coaches proves that next season will be a good one.
