York field hockey coach Barb Marois steps down

YORK, Maine -- Barb Marois called it one of the hardest decisions she has ever had to make, but in the end, she knew it was the right thing to do.

Marois has stepped down as head coach of the York High School field hockey team. She will most likely join Sarah Michaud’s staff, in some capacity, at Dover High School.

Marois’ daughter, Kylie Nelson-Marois, will be a junior goalie with the Green Wave next fall.

York High’s Barb Marois steps down as field hockey coach after 18 seasons
The Wildcats won four Class B state championships and 12 regional titles in her tenure.

... Marois, who took over a struggling Wildcats field hockey program in 2000 and turned it into one of the state’s best, has resigned as York’s field hockey coach so she can watch her children, Zach and Kylie, compete at Dover. She leaves with a career record of 258-48-10, four Class B state championships and 12 regional titles. Only twice in her 18 seasons did the Wildcats not make the regional finals.

Marois was inducted into the U.S. Field Hockey Association Hall of Fame in 2004. She graduated from the University of New Hampshire in 1986 and was a member of the U.S. national field hockey team from 1986-96, playing in two Olympics (1988 and 1996). She retired from playing after the 1996 Atlanta Games, settled in Dover, and became a high school field hockey official. Then, in 2000, Ted Welch, then the York athletic director, asked her if she would be interested in coaching his team.

“It’s been a great experience for me,” said Marois, who is a wellness teacher at York Middle School. “I’m proud of what York field hockey represents and thankful to everybody, not just the girls but the parents, the colleagues, everyone who helped along the way.”
