For freshman Becca Puente, motivation has been the key to her success.

“She gives us 110% each and every day,” junior varsity field hockey head coach Brittany Jackson said. “Becca constantly looks for feedback and always wants to improve her game.”

Puente has shown her love for field hockey since she was just 7 years old. Now as starting frontline for the girls’ junior varsity team, Puente is producing results with her finesse, leading the team with seven goals propelling them to a 7-0-1 record in county play.

“I think being more of finesse player helps me out. I use more of my skill versus bigger hits and it really helps on the field,” she said.  Freshmen teammates Lucy and Mae Jung could not agree more.

“Whenever I’m on the field and I’m bringing up the ball, Becca’s always open and cutting to me,” teammate Lucy Jung said.

“I know when Becca has the ball I can trust that her with it.”

On and off the field, Puente demonstrates great leadership.

“She sets a high standard of what a prepared, organized, student-athlete should look like by excelling in the classroom,” Jackson said. “On the field, Becca constantly motivates all the girls. Her vibrant and positive attitude helps keep all team members invested and excited.”
