Brentwood High School’s field hockey team has won five games so far this year. They had one win all of last year.
The Eagles played their last regular-season game Wednesday against Ladue, losing 4-0. The Midwest Tournament starts next week.
“They've improved a ton,” said first-year coach Janie Schneider. “I’m excited for the tournament next week. I think we even have a chance that we could even win.”
Schneider played field hockey for Brentwood. She's a 2005 BHS graduate.
Ladue coach Barb Dwyer had good things to say about the Eagles, but not their home field.
“Brentwood has improved a lot,” she said. “This field–I don’t know how they play on it. It’s horrible, but despite that, they’re really coming along, and they’re just an enjoyable team to play.”
Eagles field hockey plays at the Mark Twain Elementary field.
