With stick in hand and mouth guard in place, Catherine Cook is ready to pass the ball to a teammate or to take a pass and head toward the goal. The senior captain has already proved her leadership, on and off the field.
The Titan field hockey team started the season strong and has a record of 3-1. One of the reasons for their success is Catherine Cook.
She gives 100 percent whether it is at practice or in a game. She is a good athlete and a good student and personifies leadership, on and off the field, said Head Field Hockey Coach Bob Eavenson.
Catherine has played field hockey for four years. She is a forward and has become a key to the Titans offense. We have played four games and Catherine has either had a goal or an assist in each of them, Eavenson said.
In fact, she has scored two goals and had five assists. She is an unselfish player and understands the meaning of team work, Eavenson said. She is truly a role model for our younger players. I wish I had more like her.
