BC: "And at the end of it all, it's about how you felt in that moment. That's what you will never forget." Washington College Field Hockey 2012
FC: Washington College Field Hockey The 2012 Season
1: "They know me in a way no one ever has. They open me up to do things I never thought I was capable of. Sometimes they drive me to insanity, or make me laugh so hard I want to cry, and constantly make me compete to be the best I can be. They are the beat of my heart and the energy in my soul. They are my teammates."
2: CHESTERTOWN, MD -- With three Centennial Conference Tournament appearances in the last four years, the Washington College field hockey team has reestablished itself in the upper half of the conference. The new challenge for the Shorewomen is capturing the 2012 Centennial Conference Championship - 15 years after winning a share of their first conference title in 1997.
3: "The "Final 10" will be a motto that you will often hear me refer to - it is a great way to form an analogy referencing how we will train and compete. "The Final 10" is where we will win the Championship." -Coach Boyle March 26, 2012
4: "The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say 'I.' And that's not because they have trained themselves not to say 'I.' They don't think 'I.' They think 'we'; they think 'team.' They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don't sidestep it, but 'we' gets the credit.... This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done."
5: Seniors. Captains. Leaders.
6: "So what is a champion? It is not so much about perfection and flawlessness, though at first glimpse it may be what you envision. It is the true essence of embracing imperfection and making it work to OUR perfection. It is grinding it out, pushing through what tries to creep in and limit you, us."
7: "How do you define a champion? A person who has everything go right? Or a person who is resilient and endures the ups and downs, learning to grow with oneself?"

17: "I personally want to take a moment to express how privileged I feel to have been a small part of watching a team, this team, develop and accomplish history making events that all players before you and all players that will follow will reflect upon. It is often difficult when immersed so deeply in an experience to truly enjoy what is happening around you." -Coach Boyle
