For a program not even a decade old yet, the Lee-Davis field hockey team has accomplished a lot in 2013.
The Confederates, coming off winning the last Capital District title in 2012, won the first-ever Conference 11 crown in 2013, followed it up with a 5A South Region Finals appearance, and made the school's first-ever trip to the State Field Hockey Tournament Friday in Virginia Beach.
But they ran into a juggernaut in Mountain View.
Mountain View, with multiple appearances at the state tournament level, was simply a cut above the Confederates, defeating Lee-Davis 7-0 this afternoon. Most of the first half was played in the Mountain View offensive zone, Courtney Gosslin and the Lee-Davis defenders having to swipe aside shot after shot, opportunity after opportunity.
The offense got some momentum after halftime and had several chances inside the Mountain View zone but weren't able to avoid the shutout.
Lee-Davis Field Hockey ends the season with a record of 19-3 and will look to use this maiden voyage to state-level competition to make a return run come 2014, albeit with the loss of several seniors.
