Warrensburg Field Hockey player Korynn Raymond pursues the ball during the recent game versus Corinth which resulted in the Burghers capturing the Adirondack League Championship. This was a turnaround year for the Burghers, who endured a 0-6 record in 2011, but worked hard to earn a 6-0 record in 2012.

“If the school is able to hire a Division I college coach who needs a teaching job, I’ll work as her assistant,” she said with a smile. “At this point, it’s hard to turn away from my group of juniors.”
Bump continued that the hockey team’s success was bolstered by parents, friends, fellow students, and area citizens-at-large.
“Our community has been wonderful this year,” she said, noting that over 100 fans showed up for the Adirondack League Championship game.
Bump continued that the character and athleticism of the returning field hockey players will result in a 2013 season repeating or surpassing the success earned in 2012.
“Everything is in place for us to continue where we left off,” she said.
