Oct. 12, 2018 — Friday Statwatch through games played through Oct. 10

Hi, all.

Given the fluidity of the current situation regarding the top of the career and single-season scoring recordbooks, we’re taking this week off from our usual statistical package, and it will be back next week.

That being said, I’d like to make one dive into the statistics when it comes to the newest member of the 200-goal (and 300-goal, mind) club. Mackenzie Allessie, as of this morning, has accounted for 456 goals in her four-year varsity career, whether as a finisher or as a provider.

(Note: this site chooses to count goals and assists separately for the purposes of recordkeeping.) When you combine these two numbers, Allessie has already rocketed to the top of the list for the most goals accounted for by a single player:

Name School G A Comb
Mackenzie Allessie Mount Joy Donegal (Pa.) 326 130 456
Austyn Cuneo Voorhees Eastern (N.J.) 327 94 421
Haley Schleicher Virginia Beach First Colonial (Va.) 201 200 401
Meredith Sholder Emmaus (Pa.) 217 134 351
Chantae Miller Williamsville (N.Y.) North 142 135 267*

*Six-year varsity career

So, what does all of this tell us? Well, aside from this being “The Score-O Decade” in scholastic field hockey, it also shows the potential influence of one highly-trained and motivated athlete in bringing along a team to success.

How successful? Each of these five players has won at least one state field hockey championship.
