About Coach Connard:
Jackie Connard is a 2006 graduate of Germantown Academy, where she was a member of the varsity field hockey program.
Following her graduation from GA, Connard played field hockey for four years at Brown University. She earned four varsity letters, was a two-time captain of the Bears and won several team awards during her collegiate career. Connard earned a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience in 2010 and was a D.W. Lyman Scholar all four years.
After completing her first year of a Master of Architecture degree at Boston Architectural College, Connard currently works as a designer at Ellen Happ Architect in Doylestown.
Connard inherited the Patriots’ field hockey program from her former coach, Ginny Hofmann 1760, who retired from coaching following the Fall 2014 season. Under Connard's watch, the 2018 Varisty team went 15-5-1 overall and 8-1-1 in the Inter-Ac League, winning the league title for the first time in 12 years!
