When athletics made its long awaited return to Austin Prep, there was a new varsity sport offered for the fall. Girls Field Hockey will begin its inaugural season this year, with over 35 students participating in recent tryouts. Austin Prep will carry both a varsity and developmental sub-varsity program after being a club sport during the 2019-2020 academic year.
The team will be coached by Ms. Brianna Robbins, a former collegiate field hockey player who also serves as the Executive Assistant and Events Coordinator in the Office of External Affairs. The team has a 10 game schedule with 6 home games scheduled to take place on Father Seymour Field. "What I am most excited for this season is seeing our team grow, and for us to finally play as Austin Prep’s first Varsity Field Hockey team," Patricia Bibeau '22 said. "As our program numbers continue to grow, the more our team comes together."
