The young ladies from the Hudson Valley Field Hockey Team are heading west this week. They are leaving chilly NY for sunny California to take part in the annual field hockey tournament ("Festival") in Indio California, which is just outside of Palm Springs. The girls are looking forward to competing at the highest level of high school field hockey and also having some down time with their teammates. Hudson Valley has been participating in Festival for many years and have used it as a valuable recruiting venue along with an arena for facing the top players in the country. The team can't wait to play their first game on Wednesday, where temperatures are expected to be in the mid-sixties. Go HV!
