Serving the scholastic field hockey and lacrosse community since 1998

Dec. 27, 2020 — The true meaning of the season

The COVID-19 contagion has affected our world, our economy, the games we play and watch, and our health.

One such person in the American field hockey community needs our help.

Dr. Robi Tamargo, a former All-American at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County before becoming the team’s head coach, was part of a group of field hockey folks who helped spread the gospel of the sport in the rapidly growing area of Loudoun County, Va. during the 2010s, resulting in not only the addition of a number of varsity teams in northern Virginia, but also the doubling of the size of the Virginia High School League championships.

Dr. Tamargo, a clinical psychologist, came down with the Coronavirus while treating a patient in June. Her severe symptoms have seen her become one of the “long-haul” patients whose symptoms have not waned since they became apparent. She and her husband have had to move from Point Vedra Beach, Fla. to New York in order to be near the Mount Sinai Medical Center.

The bills are piling up, and a friend of the couple has started a Go Fund Me page. Please visit it, and help out if you can.
