Oct. 11, 2019 — Friday Statwatch through games played Oct. 9

Hi, everyone.

I’ve been reflecting on last year’s all-out assault on the Top 10 career goal-scoring list, when a number of players wound up surpassing the old national standard of 171.

This year, only one player is currently rising up the list kept to the right of this column; Penn State-bound Sophia Gladieux of Oley (Pa.) Valley, who scored her 180th goal this week. That’s enough for seventh on the all-time scoring list.

After her, the highest total for an active player that we know of is Shore Regional’s Lily Santi, who is at 127.

I guess, after a generation of gifted goal-scorers, it was about time that field hockey got its equilibrium back, allowing defense and goalkeeping to stop good creative attacking players.

Or so we thought. Look at the top goal-scorers for just this year: Talia Schenck is a sophomore, Rachel Herbine is a freshman, and Ava Borkowski is a junior. Youth shall, it seems, be served.

What we have below here is our usual collection of American scholastic field hockey statistics, culled from, amongst other sources, MaxPreps, Berks Game Day, PhilaFieldHockey.com, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, the KHSAA, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and The Denver Post.

We really like MaxPreps, because it is easy for the average coach, athletic director, or student manager to register for the MaxPreps.com platform, and we encourage you to get your fellow teams as well as perhaps your conference, league, or your state governing body to enter field hockey information there, so that we can aim for as complete a statistical picture of the country as possible.
