Overview

Field Hockey - Girls 1st Team

Brooks field hockey has built a strong and dominant program within the ISL and in New England during the last decade. With an emphasis on “team first,” the field hockey program strives to teach young female student-athletes to play with tremendous effort, discipline and sportsmanship as our highest goals. Learning every day to develop our strongest physical, emotional and mental approach to the game, the team’s success is determined by the strength of the team experience and the ability of veteran player to provide mentorship to the younger girls.

A number of Brooks players have also earned league honors during the past five years, including All-League players, All-New England players, one MVP of the league and two MVPs of the New England tournament.

Several Brooks players participate in the U.S. Futures programs as well as regional club teams, giving many students the opportunity to attend the U.S. Field Hockey Festival held annually in November. Brooks field hockey has also served as a successful step for those interested in playing field hockey at the Division I and III college levels. During the past few years, Brooks players have gone on to play at the following colleges: Boston College, Colgate, Trinity, Bowdoin, Middlebury, Bates, Union, Kenyon, Connecticut College, Northeastern University, Brown and Colby.

    Tess O'Brien began as a Spanish teacher at Brooks in 2018 after two summers working as a faculty member at Taft Summer School teaching Conversational English to ESL students. While at the University of Vermont — from which she graduated with a B.S. in Secondary Education with Teaching Licensure with a concentration in Spanish — she completed field placements and substitute taught in Spanish classrooms at South Burlington High School in Burlington, Vermont. During her time at UVM, O'Brien played four years of varsity field hockey, one year of club ice hockey, and co-chaired the Student Athlete Advisory Council, which advocated for student wellness and promoted community outreach within the athletic community. The Wolfeboro, New Hampshire native also played field hockey, hockey, lacrosse and founded and performed in the competitive dance team, while attending high school at the Holderness School.

  • Assistant Coach


    Carly Churchill '10 is the associate director of alumni relations at Brooks. After graduating from Brooks in 2010, she went on to the University of Pennsylvania, where she majored in environmental studies and played Division I lacrosse. Prior to coming back to Brooks as a staff member, she taught math, coached lacrosse (among other sports) and was a dorm parent for two years at the Forman School in Litchfield, Conn. The spring 2020 lacrosse season will be Churchill's fourth year with the girls 1st lacrosse team, and her first year as head coach. She also serves as an assistant coach for girls 1st field hockey.
