All in Field Hockey

Van der Vegt adjusting quickly in goal for Pride

The Hofstra Pride field hockey team secured its first victory of the season on Wednesday, Sept. 11, notching their first win under new head coach Courtney Veinotte. It was also the first win for freshman goalie, Merlijn van der Vegt. The win would not have been possible without van der Vegt’s strong performance in goal for the Pride.

Vince Lombardi once stated, “It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.” The Hofstra field hockey team is ready to get back up after getting knocked down last season.

After a season which saw the team go 2-4 in Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) play, miss the CAA playoffs by tiebreaker rules to Drexel University and get a new head coach in Courtney Veinotte after Kathy DeAngelis resigned with 20 seasons under her belt, the team has brand new identity and is ready for the upcoming season, according to coach.

Being a freshman is difficult. It’s the first glimpse into an independent life where you don’t know nearly as many people, are responsible for all of your chores and now have to handle a new and demanding course load. Now, picture all of that, along with juggling practice, travel and games for a Division I team. And you’re also from a foreign country, with English as your second language.
