LCC Field Hockey 2016
Welcome to the 2016 La Costa Canyon High Field Hockey Page. We welcome back our head coach Gail Petty and this year assistant coach and LCC alumni Hannah Drawbridge!!
LCC's field hockey program has been strong since the opening of the school in 1996. Coach Ellie Minor brought the school to prominence as the head coach from 1998 to 2001 where the Mavs won 4 league championships and their first Section title in 2000. The tradition continued after Coach Minor passed away with LCC winning additional CIF Division I Championships in 2003, 2005, 2006 and 2007. LCC's 2011 team shared the Palomar League championship with Rancho Buena Vista.
In 2013, the team finished 3rd in their league and made it to the Semi-Finals.
In 2014, LCC Field Hockey Team was CIF Finalist!
Congratulations to LCC Varsity for winning the Avocado West League in 2015!!!!
The athletic programs at LCC are headed by Athletic Director Kari DiGiulio, a field hockey player at Central Michigan University and our excellent field hockey head coaches.
We wish this year's teams great succuess. Go Mavs!
