Just A Few Days Left.....

...in the 2013 regular season for Field Hockey, and the Hanover Hawks are on a roll!  They haven't lost since September 11th at Lee-Davis, a game heard live on HCS Media Network.  Since then they've run the table, including giving those Confederates their only loss of the year.

Tonight they conclude the regular season at Highland Springs, looking to finish 14-2 and position themselves well for next week's conference tournament. But remember, with only one state champion crowned in a combined Class 1A--4A setup, undefeated Maggie Walker Governors School looms in their conference tourney. The top two teams from next week's event moves on to what will be known as the "4A South Region Tournament" the week of November 4th.

Lee-Davis, at 14-1, conclude their regular season with a home makeup game against Atlee (9-5) Friday at 5pm. Both teams are prepping for 5A postseason action, as their four-team Conference 11 Tournament with Henrico and Highland Springs will hold semifinals Monday at Henrico and the championship game Wednesday at Douglas Freeman.  The Henrico County teams in Conference 11 were moved to Class 5A North for Field Hockey to even out the regional brackets. Thus, Deep Run, Freeman, Godwin and Hermitage will have their own "Conference 14" tournament next week, the top two moving to 5A North Regionals where they may see Patrick Henry, whose Conference 16 Tourney next week will consist of just three teams.

Strap in, it's gonna be a wild ride on our maiden voyage through the new Field Hockey playoffs!
