The Severna Park Thunder junior field hockey team completed an outstanding season on October 29, defeating Lake Shore 1-0 at Annapolis High School to win the Anne Arundel Recreation and Parks Junior B county championship.

Ava Sprinkel scored the decisive goal late in the second half of the Green Hornets’ victory, which capped a 3-0 playoff run and allowed Severna Park to finish the season 9-2 overall.

Head coach Julie Hunsicker praised the Thunder girls’ cohesiveness and approach to playing together.

“They’re a very respectful team, kind and respectful to their coaches and each other,” she said. “They’re willing to go where we put them, and that’s key. There’s no attitude on the team. They’re willing to support each other throughout. They’re friends, and we do a lot of team bonding on and off the field, and that really helps. They all just worked very hard from day one up until today, and they never gave up.”

The team is composed primarily of seventh-graders who will move up to the Junior A division next season.

The Green Hornets Thunder 2017 Junior B county champions are Ava Sprinkel, Kelsey Ball, Caroline Bellotte, Grace Cavanagh, Alyssa Chung, Ellison Davis, Charlotte Diaz, Caroline DiPaola, Ava Faust, Hannah Foreman, Christina Giard, Alexandria Hilliard, Anna Hunsicker, Charlotte Kramer, Abigail Magyarosi, Margaret Mullervy, Sydney Rowe, Meredith Schepens and Samantha Sobolewski. They are coached by Julie Hunsicker, Jennifer Schepens and Heidi Giard.
