Coming off a 12-2-2 regular season, Belmont High’s 2018 Field Hockey has high expectations for the coming season, as noted by the Boston Globe ranking the 2017 Middlesex Liberty runners-up 19th in its preseason poll.
Repeating as league champions in 2015 and 2016, the Marauders are looking to make the Division 1 North sectional playoffs for the 12th time in 13 years. Top competitors will include last year’s Liberty champs and North sectional finalists Winchester, Lexington and improving teams such as Arlington and Wilmington. And there will be the annual tussle with next-door neighbors and perennial Division 2 state champions, Watertown.
