MIDDLE BURY FIELD HOCKEY TEAM, PRIOR TO THE START OF THE TOURNAMENT, THEY TALKED ABOUT STARTING THEIR NATIONAL RUN, BACK IN AUGUST. AND THE WEATHER HAS CHANGED, AND THEIR SUCCESS HASN’T. THEY HOSTED AND WON, BACK-TO-BACK BIG WEEKENDS, TO GET TO THE FINAL WEEKEND. THEY WON THEIR THIRD-STRAIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP, AND GOOD FOR AN AUTOMATIC BID AND, LAST WEEK, THEY HOSTED THE OPTIONAL GAMES, AND THEY WON THOSE, ADVANCING THEM AGAIN, AND NOW, TWO WINS AWAY FROM A NATIONAL TITLE, AND IN THE “FINAL FOUR.” I MEAN IT’S PRETTY INCREDIBLE, LOOKING BACK ON EVERYTHING. WE STARTED HERE IN AUGUST, AND IT HAS GONE BY SO FAST, AND, WE HAVE GROWN AS A TEAM AND, WE’RE PEAKING AT THE RIGHT TIME. THESE PAST FEW WEEKS HAVE BEEN AMAZING, AND SHOWS THE GREAT DEPTH OF OUR TEAM AND, EVERYONE WORKS TOGETHER AND, THE WAY WE ADAPT AND CHANGE. THAT’S WHO WE ARE, AND WHO WE HAVE GROWN AND, WHO WE WANT TO BE. THE “FINAL FOUR” GETS GOING, ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON, AND I’LL HAVE A PREVIEW ON FRIDAY NIGHT. THE MEN’S HOCKEY TEAM, DROPPED THE PUCK AND, IT WASN’T THE WEEKEND THEY WOULD HAVE PREFERRED, A LOSS ON SATURDAY, STARTED THEIR DAY AND THEN THEY LOST, ON THE NEXT DAY, AND A TIE, AND THOSE GAMES HAVE COME AND GONE, AND NOW LEARNING LESSONS. LIKE YOU MENTIONED, NOT THE START THAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR. SUFFERED A BIG LOSS, AND, TIED, BUT OVERALL, I THINK, YOU KNOW, IT WAS AS GOOD TEST TO MAKE GUYS KNOW AS TO WHERE WE ARE, AND, AT SAME TIME, WORK HARDER TO BE THE TEAM. MY MESSAGE WAS, NOT AS BAD A START AS THE RECORD WOULD INDICATE, AND I’M HAPPY. AND HOPEFULLY, WE CAN PUT TOGETHER A GREAT GAME ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY.
