LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Lady Lancer field hockey team is back and excited for the start of the 2016 season. With the return of 13 seniors, this is the biggest graduating class to come through the Livingston High School field hockey program in the last four years.

These tenacious seniors look to make a name for Livingston Field Hockey this fall, according to their coach.

After losing some tough overtime games last season, the Lady Lancers are especially looking forward to competing with crosstown rival Newark Academy, Cranford, Union and Westfield.

Senior defenders Abby Hauptman, Emily Fidler, Olivia Freschi, Elyssa Gordon and Sharon Perlmutter will bring strength and poise while defending their cage and protecting senior goalie Daniella Terry. Terry recorded more than 250 saves and earned First Team Honors in the conference for her dominance in the goal. 

The midfield will be led this year by seniors Kelly Wolfe, Julia Felsenheld, Jane Ryzhik and Victoria Zotti, as they look to bring the speed and skill necessary to balance the field. Wolfe was awarded the Best Teammate Award last year for her commitment, selflessness and positive leadership on and off the field.

The forward line will be led by seniors Maisy Coyne, Emma Kelly and Abby Levy as they aim to help their team finish when in their offensive end. Coyne and Kelly were their team’s high scorers last season with Coyne earning Second Team Honors and Kelly earning Honorable Mention in the conference for their efforts on the field.

Maisy Coyne, Abby Hautpman, Daniella Terry and Kelly Wolfe have been named as the Livingston High School field hockey captains for the 2016 season.  

Supporting this year’s senior class will be several highly motivated juniors and sophomores, bringing back Juniors Marley Arzonico, Beth Goldberg and Bari Greenwald as they look to continue to gain experience at their respective positions.

The sophomore class will be led by Juliette Banner, Klareena Sheena Cainglet, Rachel Dambrot, Dylan Dansky, Emma Frankstein, Lindsay Haaker, Sarah Haber, Rachel Leibel, Juliet Nangini, Melanie Sanoff and Emily Schaefer as they look to challenge each other on the field while working hard to earn their spot come game day.    

The Lady Lancers also look to welcome the following incoming freshmen to the program: Madelyn Arsht, Mia Bucich, Christina DiTonno, Brianna Flaherty, Isabella Freschi, Halle Goldberg, Jesse Halper, Chloe Heller, Meghan Kelly, Lauren Kravetz, Jaynie Leavy, Grace Levey, Jaclyn Lockwood, Jamie Mager, Briana Melucci, Shreya Pandya, Lauren Rakow, Samara Rhodes, Amanda Weissman and Devin Wiseberg.

This freshman class is the largest group by far to come through the program in the last ten years and the coaches and team are excited to see what they will accomplish throughout the season.

With a goal of improving on last season’s success, the Lady Lancers look forward to competing on the field for the first time on Sept. 8 after a great deal of hard work in the preseason.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
