Sectional Field Hockey: Spartans shut down Indians

Sectional Field Hockey: Spartans shut down Indians

Coach Kelly Vrooman’s pregame speech was a little bit motivational and a lot instructive, and based on Wednesday’s outcome, her Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake field hockey team was all ears. “She said we had to stay flat. Keep the sticks down. Hit the open person,” said Spartans sophomore Danielle Kempf. “We’ve been rethinking basics a lot, and it’s been working.” Those little but important things culminated in numerous offensive thrusts that Burnt Hills parlayed into a 2-0 Section II Class B semifinal win over Glens Falls at Union College’s College Park.
