Nov. 12, 2021 —  Friday Statwatch for games played through Nov. 10

Welcome back to Statwatch, which is our attempt to use the various statistics from the game of field hockey to connect the present to the past, either for individuals, teams, or coaches.

Our statistics of the week comes from the nation’s flagship program over the last quarter century, Voorhees Eastern (N.J.). In the last week, not only has Ryleigh Heck taken over the national scoring lead with her 115th goal of the season, but her teammate, Izzy Bianco, became only the third known U.S. scholastic field hockey player to record as many as 50 assists in a season. She needs only four helpers in the next week of play to become the all-time leader in helpers for one season.

In the red type below is our usual weekly panoply of American scholastic field hockey statistics, culled from, amongst other sources, MaxPreps, Berks Game Day, the KHSAA, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and Advance Media.

We would like to get as many coaches and other field hockey people 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.
