BULLETIN: August 11, 2022 — Eastern, staying home

When Danyle Heilig resigned from the head coaching position of Voorhees Eastern (N.J.) after the 2019 season, there were three assistant coaches on her staff.

One, Alex Marshall, took over in 2020. All she did was coach the Vikings to the South-West D sectional championship with an undefeated record at 14-0. It was a season (and a post season) truncated by the global pandemic.

A second Viking assistant, Kerry Heck, took over for the 2021 season. All she did was steer Eastern to a 25-2 record, a 22nd straight state championship, and the final Tournament of Champions.

Today, the third Eastern assistant, Sara Snuffin, was named as the new head coach of the 21st Century’s most dominant scholastic field hockey program.

Snuffin is used to being around the Eastern program, having played goal during the Austin Cuneo years. But I think during the last couple of years, she will have picked up valuable advice and mentorship being around Marshall and Heck.

It would not be surprising at all if the Eastern Express doesn’t miss a beat this fall.
