Congratulations to the following Central League field hockey players on being named to the All Delco teams.
Sydney Corcoran, Haverford: Old Dominion is getting a good one. Corcoran’s play in midfield was critical to Haverford’s success. The Fords went 10-1 in the Central League for the third year in a row and finished 16-2-1 overall. The only league loss was a 2-0 setback to Conestoga. Defense was Haverford’s forte, and Corcoran’s ability to transition from defense to offense and back was integral to that. She finished the season with six goals and two assists.
Olivia DeCain, Radnor: DeCain was one of several juniors who were key to Radnor’s success. A three-year starter, she was the backbone of the defense, which earned her team MVP honors. One of her strengths, according to head coach Katie Maguire, is her ability to break down her steps and calmly come away with the ball. DeCain has committed to play at Richmond.
Carly Gannon, Haverford: It wasn’t numbers that made Gannon so valuable to the Fords. It was her intensity. Coach Christa Taylor said she has never seen a player with such drive, and a third straight 10-1 season in the league and a 16-2-1 mark overall was the result. The senior forward played at the bottom of Haverford’s diamond formation and was the flyer on corners. Gannon scored four goals and had five assists. She will continue her field hockey career at Penn State.
Page Lowry, Radnor: The Raiders have had more than their share of good players over the years, but none scored more goals in a season than Lowry. The two-year captain set the program record with 32 tallies to earn first-team All-Central League honors and help Radnor finish the regular season on a 14-game winning streak and earn the No. 1 seed in the District 1 Class 2A tournament. She will play collegiately at Fairfield.
