U-32 Field Hockey Senior Defender

Raiders coach Dillon Burns: "Peyton and senior Avery Fournier worked really well together, and Peyton also was not shy about telling some of our younger defenders exactly what she needed them to do. When you have players sprinting toward goal with the ball, you need someone who is not shy about taking that kind of leadership. In addition to managing our defensive positioning, Peyton had some huge heroic moments in our Spaulding quarterfinal game where she stepped up and stole the ball and cleared it, when otherwise we might have lost the lead."
