Mahoney to Play NCAA Division II Field Hockey
The weeks leading up to Thanksgiving are exciting for many students across the nation as shorter weeks of school end with a family feast. It was especially exciting for athletes as schools planned ceremonies celebrating NCAA Signing Day. On November 19th, we honored senior Engineering & Robotics student Zoe Mahoney of Sutton.
Mahoney signed a Letter of Intent formalizing her commitment to play field hockey at the University of New Haven, an NCAA Division II college in New Haven, Connecticut. She plans to pursue an engineering degree at the school.
Mahoney played field hockey for four years and led the team as a captain during her senior season. A standout player, she contributed 37 points in goals and assists playing both forward and midfield positions. She’s also a two-time league all-star. In addition to her field hockey experience, Mahoney is a member of the National Honor Society, National Technical Honor Society, and Robotics Club. She is also our Class of 2019 Valedictorian.
The National Signing Day ceremony included messages of thanks and congratulations to Mahoney who contributed to an impressive four-year run of success for the girls’ field hockey program, including a league title and three MIAA tournament berths.
“I have had the opportunity to work with many students who are trying to make decisions about college and sports,” said Athletic Director Michele Denise. “I am thrilled to see our field hockey program honor their first scholarship player in our school history. This is a memorable moment for our school.”
