Gateway Girls’ Field Hockey

Beginning of Season Update
Field Hockey Coach
Recent win against Pennsville

The Gateway Girls’ Field Hockey season is officially underway! The current roster consists of fifteen players, all on the varsity level. So far they have a 2-5 record but are playing big schools with outstanding teams. Amy Ambrosius has been the head coach for years at Gateway, and she has worked to build a team with strong players who support each other.

In an interview with the head coach, I asked her a series of questions. First, “What are some goals you have for this season?”

Mrs. Ambrosious responded, “I have many goals, to win all of our crossover games in the colonial conference, win the first round in playoffs, and build an off-season work ethic,” she continues, “We have improved most in our strength physically but we can grow mentally.”

I then asked, “What will have the greatest impact on our team this season?”

“We have to be patient with each other and learn from our losses, we are in a tough division and corrections need to be applied in order to get better,” she answered.

So far, Girls’ Field Hockey has played seven games in the conference and won two. After wins against Pennsville, 8-0, and Absegami, 7-2, the team will need to focus on the harder games and not let anything get past them.

The hardest game so far was the loss against West Deptford, 10-0. By taking advice from the coach, getting stronger mentally, and not letting things get in the way of play, the team can overcome tough games and come out with wins.

The girls still have twelve more games in the regular season and hope to learn from every single game with the help of Coach Ambrosius and senior captains, Angie Zagone, Gabby Gasis, and Maura Kearnes.

Hopefully, the Gateway Girls’ Field Hockey team will continue to improve and meet the goals set for this season and future seasons to come. Go Gators!
