Maine field hockey star eyes Junior National team spot for European tour
... Duke was the nation’s No. 1-ranked team before being upset 3-2 in overtime in the NCAA quarterfinals by eventual champion Delaware.
“It has been a dream. It has been one thing after another. It has been awesome. It has been so much fun,” said Varney, who is a sophomore central midfielder at St. Paul’s School in Concord, New Hampshire, where she also plays ice hockey and lacrosse.
She feels fortunate to have incredible parents, Jeff and Paula, who were willing to cart her all around the country as she pursues her dream.
Varney, who spent several years in the Waterville-based Maine Majestix field hockey program, will travel to Houston to train with the other 23 members of the U.S. Junior National team from Jan. 20 to 22. Eighteen players will be selected to play in Europe in May.http://bangordailynews.com/2017/01/09/s ... pean-tour/
