Barrows said she was impressed about how the players have shown such commitment to field hockey, particularly after the school board months ago proposed scrapping the program in a budget-cutting effort.
The players have been turning out in force, and attended extra practices as well, Barrows said.
"The girls are willing to put in extra time, they're trying to build as a team, and we'll see what the season brings," she said. "They're here to play, and I'm very happy about what's ahead."
