Wildcat Field Hockey Adds 7 in 2023 Class
The Davidson field hockey team welcomes an incoming class of seven in 2019, first-year head coach Zoe Almquist announced Friday.
“With preseason right around the corner, I am excited to announce this year’s field hockey freshmen,” said Almquist. “I am very optimistic about the talent and promise from this incoming group. They are all in enthusiastic support of the program as we move through this transition phase and are ready to dive in and contribute themselves. Our staff is pleased to begin our tenure at Davidson alongside this class — and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
