September Skyhawk of the Month

 

Congratulations to Ashley Heyden for being selected as our first Skyhawk of the Month for this school year.  Ashley, better known as Coach Heyden, has coached middle school and high school teams since 2011, and thankfully has coached our team the last two years.   Coach Heyden began playing field hockey in the 7th grade, continued at Salem High School in VA Beach, where she played varsity all four years, and then went on to play for Randolph Macon College.   Even though she teaches in Richmond Public Schools, she drives to Bird every afternoon to coach our girls; she is adamant that she is a Skyhawk at heart.    Coach Heyden was nominated by both field hockey parents and players.   They cited her enthusiasm, her commitment, her determination to find enough girls to have a team, and especially her love for the girls as reasons for the honor.   She encourages her team both on and off the field and is already planning and fundraising in hopes of attending a camp together next summer.   Congrats and thank you for helping to make LCB the best it can be.
