After falling to Lakeland in last year's New York State championship game in Syracuse, NY Garden City High's field hockey team would like nothing more than the opportunity to reclaim the NY state crown they won in 2008. With six returning starters that include captains Alex Bruno, Tara Mahon, defender Catherine Dickinson and goalkeeper Laura Fanning, the Trojans have begun their season with a tough opening schedule.Two close games (a 1-0 victory over Massapequa and a 1-1 tie with Cold Spring Harbor) started the season but were not necessarily an indication that things were not going to go GC's way in future games. With Bruno back in the line up after missing the first two games, and with senior Catherine McTiernan back in action, GC came out strong against Friends Academy last Monday afternoon. The Trojans jumped out to a 1-0 lead on a goal by Jenna Fuchs. Goals from McTiernan and Bruno made it 3-0 and by halftime the Trojans held a comfortable 5-0 lead. Head coach Diane Chapman pulled her starters for the second half as GC went on to win 5-1.
