Meet the Captains - Sophie Hartl

During the offseason, we're getting to know some of our Forest Hills Field Hockey players and coaches.

Looking ahead to fall 2021, one of our three varsity captains is current junior Sophie Hartl. Watch for more profiles in the coming weeks!
1) How did you get into field hockey?

- I started playing lacrosse in 5th grade and a lot of my friends on the team suggested that I play field hockey as well and so I decided to try it and joined the next year and have played ever since.

2) Tell me about some of your favorite field hockey moments.

- Some if my favorite field hockey moments include any time I’m hanging with the team, whether it’s at practice, team dinners, car rides to games, or getting ice cream after tryouts or team runs, I just love everyone on the team and love spending time with them.

3) Do you have any pregame rituals?

- One of my favorite pregame rituals that I have is blasting pump up music in the car on the way to games, one that I always listen to is Bring Em Out.

4) How do you keep yourself motivated?

- I keep myself motivated by reminding myself that I am a part of a team and to give up or not give my best would hurt the performance of the team altogether and I don’t want to let anyone down.

5) Looking into the future, how do you think being a part of a team will help you succeed?

- I think that being a part of a team will help me succeed in the future because it has taught me how to work together with people and also has taught me work ethic, grit and how to be able to trust as well as support the people around me.
