Driscoll named Athlete of the Week

Jahna Driscoll started from day one as a freshman last season on Greene’s varsity field hockey team. That club finished a perfect 20-0 to win the Class A state championship, and Driscoll was an integral cog in one of the school’s most dominant teams ever.

The fact that a freshman was starting on such an outstanding team was cause enough to take notice. More impressive is that Driscoll was placed on the field in a position completely unfamiliar to her.

Due to an injury to starting center defensive back Abbey Wentlent, Driscoll was moved to the center of the defense. “She’s someone who just comes in and wants to do her job,” said Greene’s longtime head coach, Sue Carlin. “Last year proved that.
