SUMMIT, NJ-  Junior Ali McCarthy ’18 became the youngest player in the history of Oak Knoll’s field hockey program to score 100 goals when she tallied her 32nd goal of the season against Arthur L. Johnson High School last week, 

McCarthy, of Madison, is only the third Oak Knoll field hockey player to reach the century mark, joining her sister Ryan McCarthy ’13 and Caroline Andretta ’15.

“Ali is an extremely gifted field hockey player and has had a huge impact on our team,” said Ali Good, field hockey coach. “She sets a standard for excellence in her skilled play, and passionate dedication in every practice and game.

“What I find most impressive about Ali is her humbleness. Hitting the 100 goal mark is impressive, but for Ali she is more focused on her team and what they accomplish together,” Good added.

Earlier this year, McCarthy was one of three Oak Knoll field hockey players named to the Harrow Sports/National Field Hockey Coaches Association All-American Team. McCarthy and Gabrielle Andretta ’18 were the first sophomores from Oak Knoll to earn the distinction.
