Some of Louisville top field hockey players are honored

The Louisville Catholic Sports Network All-Catholic Teams recognize student-athletes who played at the top level during the regular and postseasons within their sport. Players are selected based on nominations and feedback from local coaches and the Louisville Catholic Sports Network staff that covered the teams during the 2012 season.

A year ago, Manual took home the Kentucky State Field Hockey trophy. In 2012, the state title returned to the Sacred Heart Academy Valkyries after defeating the Assumption Rockets 1-0 in the Kentucky State Field Hockey Championship game.

But the Rockets made the Valkyries earn the title. Neither team scored a goal in regulation. With 1:21 left in the extra period, Katherine English scored the game winning goal to give Sacred Heart a walk off victory.

That ended a banner year for Sacred Heart who defeated Assumption three times. The Valkyries beat the Rockets in the Apple Tournament Championship Game, regular season, and the state title game.

Mercy and Presentation both advanced to the state tournament quarterfinals before losing. Holy Cross’ season ended in the district tournament.
