Belmont High School’s junior defense/sweeper Julia Chase has verbally committed to play field hockey for Division 1 University of New Hampshire Wildcats, according to multiple social media postings.
A 2015 Middlesex League All-Star, who anchored the Marauders’ defense during its record 14-2-0 regular season run (including 12 shutouts in 19 games) a league championship and a 2-1 playoff record, would join Head Coach Robin Balducci who has led the team to 20 postseason appearances including an America East regular season title in 2010.
Chase is the second Marauder to commit verbally to play top line college field hockey, joining junior teammate AnnMarie Habelow, who has committed to the University of Louisville.
High school athletes can sign official letters of intent beginning in July of what will be their senior year.
