Orange County's Mulligan Field Hockey Club, home of "The Divots" U19 team are gold medal winners for the 2008 National Festival. This USA National Festival is one of the most premier tournament events in the country to win while players are looking to catch the eyes of college coaches.
What an exciting week of field hockey lead by our team captain Clair "Bear" Layton, Newport Harbor HS and anchored by our two exceptional standout senior players, Shannon Rohan, Newport Harbor HS and Colleen Ryan, Huntington Beach HS, ! Our record for the tournament: W-5, L-0, D-1.
The Divots triumphed over teams from coast to coast, San Diego, CA, Maine, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Parts of the country as Maryland and Pennsylvania foster superb hockey and hopefully now they know we have some pretty darn good hockey in California too!
