One must always be cautious when singling out individuals in a team sport.
Hanna Lewis is not a one-person show. Let’s just say that Lewis has been doing more than her share.
This week, Lewis’ prolific scoring season picked up steam, as the Cedar Crest field hockey team continued its push for a postseason berth. On Tuesday at Ed and Jeannie Arnold Field at Earl Boltz Stadium, Lewis, a senior forward for the Falcons, netted her 22nd goal of the fall, during a 4-1 setback at the hands of Manheim Township.
Lewis has done her damage this season with unrelenting hustle, a knack for positioning – being in the right place at the right time – superior hand-eye coordination and a booming shot. Lewis plans to take her field hockey talents to Lafayette next fall.
Through this week, Lewis and the Falcons sported an 8-8 overall mark and were very much in contention for a District Three Class AAA playoff spot.
