Three Skowhegan Field Hockey Players Named to National Program
There is no team in high school field hockey with more state titles than the Skowhegan Indians. The defending state champs have won nine Class A titles in the last ten years.One reason why head coach Paula Doughty and company have had so much success is that their team begins playing field hockey when they are little kids. The hard work is paying off in more than just state titles. Nicole Sevey, Sarah Finnemore, and Allison Lancaster have all been selected to the USA Field Hockey Futures Elite Program which represents the top 180 high school field hockey players in the country. The notoriety does add pressure, but for Skowhegan there is still only one ultimate goal.Jessie Skillings â€“ Skowhegan Seniorâ€œI think it’s just ourselves. We don’t want to let ourselves down. Our goal is to win another state championship our senior year. We don’t want to let down anybody else in the town or anybody else. We want to win for ourselves and know we can win it our senior year.â€Skowhegan will begin their state title defense on Friday when they open up at home against Mt. Ararat.
