The core is deep and experienced. But can that depth and talent be molded into something special? That will be the job of veteran Warde field hockey coach Jodie Shannon this season.
Heading into her 14th season with the Mustangs, Shannon has an experience-laden squad that boasts 11 seniors, led by three-year starter Katie Stepsis in goal. Stepsis, a second-team All-FCIAC performer last fall, made 142 saves and compiled an 89.1 save percentage as Warde went 8-5-2-1.
