The Wyoming Valley Conference field hockey regular season is more than a month away, set to begin with a full slate on Sept. 6.
But Crestwood’s Sarah Richards and Dallas’ Emily Farrell are among the student-athletes staying busy and succeeding in the summer months.
Earlier this week, USA Field Hockey announced that Richards, a sophomore, was one of 102 players selected to compete in the upcoming AAU Junior Olympic Games.
Richards will play for one of six teams, the Green team, in the event that will be held Monday through Thursday in Detroit.
Meanwhile, Farrell was selected Top Performer among players in the Class of 2019 at the Under Armour Select Game, a showcase event earlier this week at Boston College.
