2018 Accomplishments: PAISAA Champions
2018 Notables: Defeated Inter-AC Champs and Pennsylvania Region #10 Germantown Academy 5-4 in 2OT to capture PAISAA State title
2019 Outlook: EA will feel the loss of a strong senior class that includes Lauren Devletian (First Team Inter-AC, Dartmouth commit), GK Caroline Kelly (First Team All-American, Boston U commit), Maddie Rehak (All-Delco First Team, Bucknell commit) and Gianna Pantaleo (All-Delco First Team, Boston U commit). They return a ton of young top talent in players like Kelly Smith (Top 10 Player in the Class of 2021, Third Team All-American), Macy Szukics (Top 3 Player from the Class of 2022, Duke commit), Sofia Acosta (2021, Top 50 Player, Penn State commit). Add in public school transfers Ashley Sessa (Top 3 Player in the Class of 2022, U17 Junior National Team Member, transferring from Spring-Ford) and Mia Garber (Top 100 Player in the Class of 100, transferring from Downingtown West) and they should be a force once again in the Inter-AC and PAISAA.
Over the next couple of months MAX Field Hockey will be releasing special features on teams that will be competing in the MAX Field Hockey High School National Invitational at The Proving Grounds, September 20-22, 2019.
