Field Hockey Championships on the Move in 2018

The 2018 NYSPHSAA Girls Field Hockey Championships have a new home. After four years at Maine-Endwell and Vestal High School (Section IV), the tournament will move to Williamsville North High School (Section VI) to start a three-year term. This is Williamsville North’s first time hosting the tournament.

“The venue is state of the art and unlike any other high school facility across the state,” said Judy Otto, Section VI Field Hockey Coordinator. “By having two fields side by side all spectators will be able to observe two competitions at once as well as watching replays on the jumbotron. This will be a very unique experience for the athletes playing in this wonderful environment.”

Looking back at the 2017 Championship, Ward Melville (Section XI) defeated Main-Endwell (Section IV) on their home field 1-0 for the Class A Championship. Lakeland (Section I) captured their ninth straight Class B title with an emphatic 5-0 win over Vestal (Section IV). Whitney Point (Section IV) won their fourth straight championship in Class C with a 1-0 win over Carle Place (Section VIII).

In 2018, Class A Williamsville North will look to defend its home field while Maine-Endwell attempts to change the result of last year’s loss. Class B powerhouse Lakeland enters the tournament again seeking its tenth straight state title. Whitney Point looks for its fifth straight Class C championship. Carle Place seeks revenge, having lost to Whitney Point the past two seasons in the state tournament. 

The State Semifinals will take place on Saturday, November 10, and Finals will take place on Sunday, November 11. Both days start at 10:00 a.m. with the Class A Championship at Williamsville North High School. The schedule is as follows:
