Savage has stepped up for Skowhegan field hockey
Goalie began playing sport just two years ago.

...Savage joined the team her junior year after some of her friends on the team said the Indians needed a goalie. That was fine with coach Paula Doughty who has a history of recruiting athletes for the position. And Savage is an athlete.

She participated in gymnastics for 13 years and is a key member of the track and field team, competing in the 100 meter dash, relays and all the jumping events. Big, strong and agile fit Doughty’s criteria for the position.

“Her physical prowess is her biggest strength,” Doughty said. “She can do flips all the way down the field with her stuff on. Her mental toughness and sense of calm is another extraordinary feature.” ... ld-hockey/
