ABOUT FIELD HOCKEY

logo

Wilson’s Field Hockey team was founded in 2011, at the request of several Wilson students. Coach Sarah Whitener joined the team as assistant coach for its inaugural year, and became head coach in year 2, the same year that Coach Lorraine Lewis joined as goalie coach. As only one of two DC- based public schools with a field hockey, the Wilson field hockey team has had to cut its teeth by playing against well-established private school teams. Coaches Sarah and Lorraine, with the help from alumni of the Georgetown and AU field hockey teams, have grown the Wilson program, starting with playing against JV teams to now playing those private school varsity teams. Our players have been recruited to play in college at the DIII level, have enjoyed college club hockey, and have coached a high school team.
