Sept. 7, 2018 — A non-Statwatch note

Once Friday Statwatch gets underway in a couple of weeks, we’ll regale you with not only a collection of national field hockey statistics, but we’ll sometimes have a look at a statistical anomaly, milestone, or other accomplishment.

Yesterday, scholastic field hockey got its 34th known member of the 500 coaching wins club as Jeri Myers steered Dallastown (Pa.) to a 6-0 win over Dover (Pa.) Area. In her 37th season, Myers now has 500 wins, 53 draws, and 150 defeats.

Though Dallastown has never won a state championship, the team has gotten close, making the state semifinal in 1998. But for Myers, the game means a lot more.

“Being at a high school has been very challenging and very rewarding,” Myers tells The York Daily Record. “Hopefully I make a successful program, because later in life these kids are doctors and lawyers. They’re doing everything and that’s what this is all about.”
