Field Hockey: (This week)


Chelsea Piccirillo

Chelsea Piccirillo is a junior who plays on the Morgan field hockey team. She wears #16 on the field as a starting varsity defender. She has been playing the sport ever since it was first offered in Clinton which was sixth grade. Chelsea’s favorite part of the sport that she has been playing now for 6 years is her teammates. A funny memory she has from the field hockey team is when she was playing defense and the ball had hit her finger and it exploded with blood. This has occurred to Chelsea twice, once during freshman year and once during sophomore year and all she can remember is how blood was all over her stick, uniform, and hand.
