Field Hockey - Varsity
2019 - 2020
Head Coach: Lenny McCaigue
Derryfield returned to varsity field hockey in the fall of 1998, after a period of club status playing JV teams only. The team posted a 2-11 record in Class M/S that season and had a winning (9-6) record in 2000. Since 2004, Derryfield has qualified for the Final Four every year, were finalists in 2005 and 2006 and won the school's first ever State Title in 2007 with a 17-0 record. Since 2001, the program has fielded a JV team. After semifinal losses in 2008 and 2009, the team won its way back into the final in the 2010, 2011, and 2012 seasons, capturing an historic three-peat State Championship run for the first time in school history and earning Derryfield four titles in six years. In the 2013 season, Derryfield returned to the final for a fourth consecutive year, but had to settle for the runner-up trophy. Since the program's return to varsity status in 1998 Derryfield has an overall record of 256-62-17. In our endeavors to continually challenge our student-athletes, Derryfield field hockey moved up to Division II in 2014. In 2016, the team finished runners up, losing in double overtime in the final, but captured their first ever D II championship in the fall of 2018 with a 1-0 win over Hanover HS. The team is coached by Lenny McCaigue and assisted by Laurie Byron, former Dartmouth College FH standout and Kelsey Federico, former UMass Lowell player.
