Field Hockey - Varsity

  • Historical beginnings: Carol Anderson, owner of PennMonto Field Hockey and Lacrosse Company, was named Mercersburg’s first female sport coach in 1972. Her 1973 field hockey team went undefeated. The team’s coaching history also includes former college head coaches, including at the Division I College of the Holy Cross.
  • In the 2010s, the Storm has established a new standard for most wins in a season, set several other team records, and has twice reached the quarterfinals of the PAISAA state tournament. Recent graduates have gone on to play at Bucknell University, Gettysburg College, Ursinus College, and the University of Virginia.
  • The Mercersburg field hockey team trains and competes on Regents’ Field, an expansive synthetic turf facility completed in 2009 and designated for primary use by female sports teams at Mercersburg. The field, which is also utilized by the girls’ lacrosse program, measures 375’ x 225’ and features a SprintTurf surface and eight boxes for maximizing practice and workout opportunities.
  • Head coach Kristin Ahlgren has also coached field hockey at the high-school and college level in Maryland, Michigan, Oklahoma, and Ohio, as well as for the U.S. Field Hockey Association’s Futures Field Hockey Program.
