PRINCETON, N.J. – After winning its 11th Ivy League title in 12 seasons, the Princeton field hockey team will welcome the Class of 2020.

"We needed talent and a diverse skill set to fill the very big shoes left by our great class of 2016,” said head coach Kristen Holmes-Winn. “I feel confident that the class of 2020 is up to the challenge. They are a well-rounded group of scholar-athletes who each bring a unique playing perspective that will add depth and interest to our already robust squad. We are thrilled to announce and welcome the class of 2020.”

Princeton Field Hockey will be revealing the Class of 2020 throughout the week, so be sure to return to GoPrincetonTigers.com to meet the newest additions to the program.

Olivia LeSueur
High School: Greenwich Academy
Club: FC United

Kristen Holmes-Winn: “The “ball” centric mentality is what often makes the transition to collegiate hockey difficult for some athletes. Olivia, on the other hand, is a selfless player who is happy to do the work off the ball. As a striker, she understands movement, space and is very skilled at linking up with teammates. Olivia’s quiet, calm presence is a great foil to what is often a chaotic, demanding position. We are looking forward to welcoming Olivia to Tiger Field Hockey.”

The first time I came to a camp here, I fell in love with the environment, the coaches, the campus, and the location. I knew that I’d be getting the best education that I could and be close enough so that my parents could come see me play.

Taylor Nolan
High School: Hempfield
Club: Lanco Premier

Kristen Holmes-Winn: “Taylor is a standout two-sport student athlete from Hempfield High School in Pennsylvania. On the field, Taylor brings a dynamic combination of skill, speed, and “coachability.” Taylor’s coaches and teachers describe her as a “high character” student-athlete. She was unanimously selected as team captain for both her field hockey and lacrosse teams and is the kind of leader whose actions always speak the loudest.  Taylor is a threat with the ball and has a natural grace about how she plays. Taylor will be an effective and dangerous playmaker.”
