9/10  Last night, under the lights, on the turf, the WCA JV Field Hockey team won 1-0 against Pattonville.   The game proved to be a display of heart and hard work. The girls dominated the entire game, keeping the ball in the opponents’ end and firing numerous shots on goal.  Though we mainly play on grass, the girls demonstrated great pushes, sweeps, pulls, and other effective stick work that is essential on turf.  We continue to be proud of the girls.

9/4  Wow…what a game. WCA JV tied previously undefeated Parkway South 0 to 0.WCA displayed excellent passing, stick work, block tackles, shots on goal, and drives. We were on offense much of the time. Our girls communicated on the field, encouraged one another, and played with obvious intensity. They hustled, regardless of the heat. One of our shots went into the goal but was called back.
They did not hold back. The game was again, a group effort.

8/24  History was made yesterday at Lutheran South. Lucy Kehr scored the first varsity field hockey goal EVER at WCA. If YOU want to be a part of WCA history, come to the varsity field hockey home opener this Friday, 8/28, at 4:15.
