Red Bank Catholic field hockey goalie Bella Hurta has reached the 200-save milestone. She achieved the mark on Sept. 10 in a road game against Ocean Township and finished the contest at 209. Coincidentally, she hit the 100-save rung against this same team in 2020.  

The junior goalkeeper won the starting position in 2019 as a freshman and logged 74 saves in her debut season. She recorded 112 last year and entered the 2021 campaign credited with 186.

“Bella has consistently improved each season,” stated second-year Head Coach Niki Ikeda. “She is athletic and has great instincts. Her softball talent is evident in her quick hands and reflexes. She is strong in the cage and we are fortunate to have her.”
