Honoring senior leaders on field hockey team

Even though the season is already over, we still want to recognize these senior leaders

Katie Marker and Mackenzie Shimko

These hard working young women lead the Saucon Valley Field Hockey Team to a season record of 7-3-1. They had made it to the League Semi-Finals versus the rival Spartans of Southern Lehigh, where they suffered a 1-0 loss. They had also earned themselves a second seat in the District 11 playoffs, in which they had to forfeit due to a COVID-19 shut

down. Let’s take a moment to highlight their hard work and their plans beyond SVHS.

Continue my education at West Virginia University as a public health major. Go to school for a while, ultimately become an orthopedic PA. Buy my dream car (lifted, four door white Jeep Wrangler with black rims) marry the love of my life, have a gorgeous outdoor wedding, have a whole bunch of blondie, blue eyed babies, and just live a long, happy life. My favorite memory from the season was getting a yellow card and having our coach sir console me.

After college I plan on starting my own company that makes it big, winning big brother, marrying an NFL player (preferably a giants player), having three kids who are diehard New York fans, adopting a mini goldendoodle, buying my parents a mansion on the beach, and living life with no regrets.
