Recognition of Marshall High School's Field Hockey Team

Mr. Chairman:

The Marshall High School Field Hockey Team won the Northern Region Championship in 2005. While not even qualifying for the regional tournament last season, this year the team was the Cinderella story of the falls sports season. They shocked the region by going 19-6 and winning the Northern Region Championship on November 3. They did this in overtime, beating the three-time defending champion Woodson 2-1 - and we think the Redskins keep our hearts in our throats.

The victory was not only Marshall's first-ever in field hockey but it was also the first region crown for the school in any team sport since 1987. The team won in the first round of the Virginia AAA state tournament by a score of 5-0. They lost in the semifinal round to the defending state champion. They finished the season ranked third in the state of Virginia. Additionally, they were awarded the Virginia High School League Sportsmanship award for the AAA classification.

Their seventh year coach, Christina Carroll, only missed one game to have a baby midseason. She earned the Region Coach of the Year honors for her performance and certainly our admiration as well. Standout players included senior Sam Mills and junior Gina Cappiello, both first-team all-region selections. Stand-out senior Sam Mills was also honored as all metropolitan in 2005.


In recognition of the Marshall High School Field Hockey Team for their victorious year by winning the Northern Region Championship, I move that the Board of Supervisors invite the Team and their Coach to come before the Board to formally commemorate their hard fought achievement.
