EMIGSVILLE — There are a number of things that field hockey players normally have to worry about on game days.

Things such as the opponent, the weather and the field conditions, just to name a few.

One concern that rarely rears its head, however, became a big focus of Monday afternoon’s clash between York-Adams League Division I rivals Dallastown and Central York.

How would the players deal with an infestation of pesky pests?

Whenever a new coach takes over a program, there’s always a little uncertainty about the team’s direction from the returning players.

The York College field hockey team was no different.

After a season in which the Spartans finished with a winning record (10-9), former coach Carly Zinn left the program for Dickinson College. Zinn’s departure opened the door for a new coach to be hired, which ultimately turned out to be first-year leader Kaitlyn Hamilton.

Before every season, Dallastown field hockey coach Jeri Myers tells her players the same thing: “Tradition never graduates.”

It sets in stone what is expected of each individual player to continue the long legacy of success in the Wildcats program. It’s a tradition that has seen the program win 10 of the last 11 York-Adams League Division I titles and three of the past four league championships.
