The Rumson-Fair Haven field hockey squad moved to the Shore Conference A North Division this fall. Here, they met and defeated new adversaries. The Bulldogs dominated their new neighbors, posting six shutout victories over division rivals to claim the crown.
The squad also defeated three other non-division foes to complete a nine-game win streak to start the season. RFH has outscored opponents by a 65-4 margin over that nine-game run.
Leading the club in scoring is junior midfielder Sylvie Notine at 17 goals and six assists. Also putting up good numbers are Izzy Kaczor (12 goals, 13 assists), Aly Megaw (13 goals, six assists) and Reese Lydon (10 goals, seven assists).
Frosh goalie Brooke Jaenicki backs up a defense that has allowed only four goals thus far.
In the past two seasons, RFH was knocked out of the state sectionals in the quarterfinal round and both times by a 1-0 score. The 2023 squad appears to be on track to break that trend and go on to a state title.
The Bulldogs are ranked No. 20 statewide by nj.com.
