Longtime head field hockey coach Ann Pickrell considered the 1999 field hockey team one of the best in school history. Led by team captains Sarah Levine Meyer ’00 and Marisa Nebosky ’00, the team finished with a 12-4-1 record. Allie Joseph ’02 and Mandi Cherewatti ’02 were explosive goal scorers while goalies Colleen Hession Thom ’02 (a Williston Hall of Famer) and Johanna Gruber Schamm ’01 combined for seven shutouts in goal. The Wildcats gave up an average of only 1.2 goals per game while scoring nearly four goals per game as a team. The team’s terrific regular season earned them a NEPSAC postseason berth. In the quarterfinals, they defeated annual ISL power Noble and Greenough 2-1. In a thrilling semifinal game versus rival Berkshire, the team avenged an earlier season overtime loss with a 3-2 overtime win to reach the finals. At season’s end, newcomer Melissa Manseau-Martin ’00 (MVP) and returner Marisa Nebosky were both named Western New England all-stars.
