Nike Field Hockey Camps Coach Takes Team to NEWMAC for 20th Straight Year
Andy Whitcomb, Mount Holyoke College Head Field Hockey Coach and Director of a top girls Nike Field Hockey Camp in Massachusetts took her team to the NEWMAC (New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference) conference tournament for the 20th straight year.
Whitcomb’s successful 2018 season ended with a trip to the quarterfinals where they were defeated by Smith College in a closely-fought game. Her impressive overall record at the school is now 237-154-1 and she continues to rank as one the top coaches for field hockey in the Northeast.
Shifting gears from a successful collegiate season into her summer camp directorship, Whitcomb has set the 2019 summer schedule for her popular New England field hockey camp at Mount Holyoke College. This girls field hockey camp in South Hadley includes an overnight and extended day camp focused on helping players with their fundamentals, offensive and defensive skills, and game-like situations.
“Andy Whitcomb has been directing our Nike Field Hockey Camp at Mount Holyoke for over 10 years now, and she continues to deliver exciting and effective training for our campers,” explained Siera Love, Vice President of Nike Field Hockey Camps. “As it apparent by her collegiate coaching success, she is an incredible coach and helps mold stand out players.”
In addition to the NEWMAC conference appearance, Coach Andy had two players chosen to the NEWMAC Field Hockey All Conference First and Second Team, and nine chosen to the 2018 Fall Academic All-Conference Teams. Mount Holyoke Field Hockey had the third most academic selections amongst the NEWMAC.
