HISTORY: Atlee Clinches First-Ever Trip To State Field Hockey Tournament....

Always the bridesmaid, never the bride.

Not anymore.

The Atlee field hockey team, in their 13th season of existence, finally broke through for the first, and second, regional playoff victories in school history, the second, a 4-0 win over Manchester tonight in the 5A South Region Semifinals, clinched a trip to the State 5A Final Four November 14th in Virginia Beach.

Hayley Anna scored all four goals for Atlee (15-5), two early in the first half, then two more after intermission, goals she told RVA Sports Network were not hers, but due to team effort.

Atlee will face the winner of the Gloucester/Princess Anne match to be held Thursday night for the 5A South Region Championship Friday at 6pm at the National Training Center in Virginia Beach. They return to that location Friday, November 14th for a 10am match in the 5A State Semifinals.

Alyssa Cox said it feels amazing to hear the term "State Tournament", and felt that this, her senior year, would be a special season.
