Best Yale field hockey moment: On our away trip to Penn we got lost trying to find the fields and when we got to the field later that evening for a practice before our game the following day it started to downpour hard. We all hit the ball hard against the backboard to hear the echo of the ball hitting the goal. On the bus ride from the field we danced and sang all the way back. Field hockey moments like that are why I love field hockey and my teammates so much.
