March 8, 2023 — A well-deserved award

This evening, Danyle Heilig, the greatest scholastic field hockey coach of the 21st century, goes into the South Jersey Coaches of Athletics Hall of Fame.

Since her sudden departure from the sidelines of Voorhees Eastern (N.J.), Heilig has turned her coaching energy to her club side, Uprise. Clad in the purple and gold of her alma mater, James Madison University, the teams that Heilig and her coaching staff have been shepherding through various indoor and outdoor tournaments have done pretty well in the last few years, winning the occasional tournament pool championship.

Given Heilig’s ethic and take-no-prisoners attitude as a coach, it’s not surprising.

Nor is it surprising that Heilig has been garnering a bunch of honors befitting a Hall of Fame career.

Congrats, Danyle.
