Overview

Field Hockey - Girls 2nd Team

The Brooks field hockey program consists of a 1st and 2nd team. Each team enjoys a competitive schedule within the Independent School League (ISL), the oldest independent school athletic association in the United States. Teams are created based on skill, and while the varsity program is very strong, the lower level act as a feeder system within the program.

Most important, the entire program focuses on a tradition of team-building, with intensity and commitment to each other as the primary goals. Both on the field and off, veteran players take seriously their role as student and athlete mentors to their younger teammates, which has helped build the successful program that exists today. There is also an emphasis on honoring the game of field hockey as well as respecting opponents.

Coaches

  • Head Coach


    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, NH native also played field hockey, hockey, lacrosse, and founded and performed in the competitive dance team, while attending high school at the Holderness School.
  • A seasoned teacher, administrator, coach and dorm parent, Wendy Brennan is the associate director of college counseling. At previous schools, she gained experience as an English teacher, department head, varsity coach, college counselor, community service coordinator, behind-the-scenes leader of Vermont Academy and mother of three teenaged daughters, Molly, Katy and Abby. Brennan lives in Merriman House with her yellow lab, Henry, and her Boxer, Tux. Brennan earned her bachelor's degree from Dartmouth College and master's degrees from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and the Bread Loaf School of English at Middlebury College. She began her teaching career at the Hotchkiss School.
