NFHCA announces inaugural High School Impact Senior Team

May 25, 2021 | 2020-2021, High School, News

Harborfields High School (Greenlawn, New York) had the most 2020 NFHCA High School Impact Senior Team honorees.

BROCKPORT, N.Y. — The National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) is proud to announce the 156 members of the first NFHCA High School Impact Senior Team.

Last month, the NFHCA High School All-American Committee created the High School IMPACT Senior Team to recognize members of the graduating class of 2021 whose senior seasons may have been impacted by COVID-19. The committee designed the award to honor the entirety of senior student-athletes’ careers and particularly recognize an individual’s accomplishments on and off the pitch, distinguished leadership, and team achievement.

Student-athletes had to meet three of five character criteria — covering items like community service and leadership roles — and five of ten athletic criteria to be eligible for recognition. The impact that the graduating class of 2021 has had on their communities is prolific and diverse, from serving in leadership positions at their high schools to volunteering their time with a myriad of charitable organizations, ranging from food pantries to children’s hospitals. On the pitch, these seniors have not only broken records and received many athletic accolades, they have also served as team captains, been models of sporting behavior, and helped lead their teams to postseason runs.

“In this unprecedented year, the NFHCA High School All-American Committee felt it was important to recognize the accomplishments of our senior student-athletes who have dedicated themselves to the game of field hockey throughout their careers,” explained Mae Shoemaker, NFHCA High School All-American Committee Chair and head coach at Acton-Boxborough Regional High School. “The committee felt it would be impossible to fairly evaluate and select a High School All-American Team based on the criteria used in previous years, so after much deliberation and careful consideration the 2020-2021 Impact Award was established. We congratulate those athletes who have been nominated by their coaches and are proud of the 2020-2021 NFHCA Impact Seniors!”

The list below represents the inaugural members of the NFHCA High School Impact Senior Team, an award that the NFHCA will continue to proudly sponsor in an effort to recognize exceptional field hockey student-athletes.

Student-athletes are listed alphabetically below, first by institution, then by last name.
