Legendary MCI Field Hockey Coach Passes Away 

Maine field hockey Hall of Famer Tookie Russell has died. She coached the sport for 30 years, from the late 50’s to the late 80’s, at MCI high school in Pittsfield. She coached softball and basketball for nearly as long. She actually started the little league program in the town, and was a well known amateur golfer. Russell was 90 years old.
