EGR Field Hockey is very excited to see the level of  enthusiasm and talent we are seeing at EGR Middle School from girls who are learning the sport of field hockey!  

 

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 !
