Despite being a very young team, with two new coaches, the Gryphons Field Hockey team made it to the NYSAIS semifinals.

Led by captains Julia Howe and Molly Mackie, Holy Child earned the No. 3 seed in the NYSAIS Tournament. After dispatching Brearley School 6-2 in the quarterfinals November 1, they earned a third shot at Hackley this season.

In both of their earlier match-ups, the Gryphons lost by just one goal. Unfortunately, in the semifinal, Holy Child fell behind 3-0 early. The girls fought back, but the Hornets prevailed 5-2.

Although disappointed not to have made it to the championship round, the girls from Holy Child ended the season with heads held high and experience on their side.
