Kylie Currier guards the cage with confidence and poise. In the first seven games of the season, all wins, she recorded five shutouts for the Masconomet Regional varsity field hockey team.
Yet before this season, the sophomore had never played the game.
“It’s just ridiculous,” said Masco coach Leah Gunner. “We put her in in the preseason and just put the pads on to see what she [could do] and she stopped everything.
Formerly a soccer player for the Chieftains, Currier was persuaded to try out for the team in the spring, while playing for the varsity softball team.
And much in her favor, the Chieftains return eight starters from a squad that was undefeated in the regular season last fall.
