This Tuesday, October 17, Potomac’s Varsity Field Hockey faced off against Holton-Arms on Potomac’s turf. Potomac played well, pressing against Holton-Arms’ defense relentlessly, but Holton-Arms won the game 3-1. This puts Potomac at 2-6 in the conference and 5-8 overall.

Eight minutes into the third quarter, the Panthers fired many impressive shots at the opponent’s goal but were thwarted. Finally, with a remarkable assist from Bella Kim ‘25, Tara Bansal ‘26 fired an impressive shot, sending the ball whizzing into the goal.
