Serving the scholastic field hockey and lacrosse community since 1998

Dec. 30, 2019 — From the right hand

The field hockey program at Newtown Square Episcopal Academy (Pa.) could have looked high and low for the coach needed to replace 1984 Olympian Gina Buggy.

Turns out, all EA needed to do was look in the same coaching box.

Stefanie Fee, who represented the U.S. in the 2016 Olympics in Rio, and also was part of the 2014 U.S. team which won the first major trophy for the women’s national team in 94 years of international competition, was hired recently as coach for the Churchwomen.

Episcopal, in Buggy’s final season as coach, finished as the winners of the Pennsylvania Association of Independent Schools Athletic Association (PAISAA). This included wins over Louisville Assumption (Ky.), and Norfolk Cape Henry Collegiate (VA) in the National High School Invitational.

The Churchwomen, with high-performance players up and down its lineup, are a definite favorite for Inter-Ac and PAISAA honors in 2020, and hiring Fee can’t hurt.
