HANOVER, N.H. – Dartmouth field hockey head coach Amy Fowler has announced the seven individuals who will join the team this fall as the members of the Class of 2018.

Four midfielders, two defenders and one attacking forward will make up the incoming class of players. Julia Donald, Laura Donald, Anna Ewasechko, Morgan Phillie, Anna Rowthorn-Apel, Maggie Sherin and Sarah Tabeek will all make their Big Green debut this fall in the 2014 season.

“We are thrilled to be adding this group of young women to our program,” Fowler said. “They each bring a strong competitive edge and an eagerness to help impact the team immediately. 

“I would like to commend my assistant coaches Pattie Gillern and Kate Heineman as well as former assistant Kristine Stigas for their work on bringing such a talented group of individuals to Dartmouth,” Fowler continued. “This class knows the importance of coming in prepared and ready to go. With the loss of six seniors, we will need our rookies to push the rising upperclassmen to fill in the gaps left by graduation. I am confident that all seven freshmen will help make us better every day!”
