LAKE MARY, Fla. — The National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) recognized a myriad of coaches for their milestone wins this afternoon at the Coach Appreciation Luncheon sponsored by FieldTurf as part of the 2022 NFHCA Annual Convention.

The coaches listed below were added to the respective NFHCA Victory Club for the milestone victories achieved in either the 2020 or 2021 season.

A new Victory Club had to be created this year, thanks to the winning ways of Sue Butz-Stavin, the head varsity field hockey coach at Emmaus High School in Pennsylvania, who won her 1,000th game this past season. The Hornets defeated East Stroudsburg North High School on October 5, 2021 to hand Butz-Stavin win 1,000 — her current record stands at 1,015-82-35.
