Finalists’ voice: “The opportunity to play for Coach Linda Kreiser has truly been a blessing. She has left a lasting impact on my life that has not only made me a better field hockey player, but more importantly a better person. One focus throughout our high school career was to ‘play with joy.’ Coach Kreiser truly embodies what it means to play with joy.”
