Compassionate in Spirit: GA Field Hockey Gives Back
Posted October 4, 2012
Germantown Academy’s Upper School Field Hockey team raised money for the Ronald McDonald House at the eighth annual Middle School Hockey for the House Tournament last month. The team collected almost $3,500!
The tournament started in 2005 by Rachel Magerman ’09 and Abby Coombs ’09 as a community service project. These days, the three Upper School field hockey teams help out by officiating games, organizing and running the concession stand, and collecting raffle prizes.
“It’s terrific to see the girls work together for such a good cause,” said Associate Director of Athletics and Varsity Field Hockey Coach Ginny Hofmann 1760. “They bake delicious treats, talk everyone into buying raffle tickets and do a great job officiating.”
