Thank you to all our Middle School Field Hockey players (both current & potential athletes) who came to the EGR Varsity Home opener (pre-season) Play Day invitational this past Saturday, August 12th. They saw 9 teams from the Detroit, Ann Arbor, Northern and Western Michigan regions compete all day long. Action started at 9 AM with girls’ field hockey on two fields – Memorial (Stadium) and Mehney (on Reeds Lake/Middle School). The high school players were excited to have them come cheer them on & they even put some of them to work assisting referees and being “ball girls” during the games- thank you for helping & jumping right in !
