Congratulations to this week’s Showcase Cinemas High School Team of the Week: Lincoln High School Girls Field Hockey!
This week’s spotlight was sent in by Greg O’Connor:
The Lincoln High School Field Hockey team won the Division II State Championship in thrilling fashion defeating South Kingstown 1-0 in Double OT on Saturday. Grace Miguel delivered the game winner for the Lions helping the Lions clinch their first State Championship in Field Hockey since 2001. Through a difficult and challenging year the girls worked together as a team, represented Lincoln High School with class, humility, and great sportsmanship, and proved to be one of the best teams in the state. Though this team had great success on the field it was how they conducted themselves off the field that truly separates themselves from others. They truly are a family. During the season the girls wore special pink jerseys and socks to honor Cheryl Leahy, (the mother of one of our student-athletes, Jillian Leahy) who was diagnosed with breast cancer this year. Currently, Mrs. Leahy is undergoing radiation and chemo therapy and our girls decided to honor her and dedicate the season to her by wearing the special pink uniforms. Ultimately, the girls finished on top with a Division II State Championship and truly had a season to remember.
Cumulus Media Radio Stations, Showcase Cinemas, & the Rhode Island Interscholastic League congratulate this week’s stand-out team of the week.
