The Gould Field Hockey Team competes within the Maine Association of Independent Athletic Directors (MAISAD) league, as well as against a number of other prep schools and high schools throughout Maine and New Hampshire.
Team Members train on their skills development and defensive and offense plays, using the Schroy Turf Field. Twice a week, players work on conditioning, either by lifting weights in the Farnsworth Field House weight room or by running on our on-campus Pine Hill cross country trail system.
Those team members who hope to train and play both in the off-season and later in college, work closely with coaches, our Athletic Director, and College Counseling, to put together a plan.

Ms. Hood received her BA from Dartmouth College where she majored in English, minored in Education and Human Development, and completed a NH 5-12 teaching certification program. In addition to her academic endeavors, she played Division I Field Hockey, earning All-American and Ivy League Offensive Player of the Year honors her senior season. After graduating from Dartmouth, Ms. Hood spent three years teaching at Holderness School, her high school alma mater. Her partner’s job as a KC-135 pilot for the Maine Air National Guard brought her to the Pine Tree State where she fell in love with the wild ruggedness of the backcountry. When she’s not in the classroom or on the athletic fields, Ms. Hood spends her time outdoors. She’s backpacked over 2,700 miles, including summiting all 48 4,000 footers in New Hampshire, thru-hiking the entire Appalachian Trail, and completing a 160-mile section of Vermont’s Long Trail. A dog lover by nature, her Rhodesian Ridgeback, Jack, is usually ten steps ahead of her wherever they venture. Ms. Hood is currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in The Teaching of English from Teachers College of Columbia University where she is composing a thesis that includes an anthology of poems about her experiences in nature.
Ms. Doyon came to Gould after teaching World History, Psychology and Current Events at Penquis Valley High School in Milo, Maine. A former student-athlete, Ms. Doyon spent her youth skiing at Sugarloaf, and went on to race for her high school and college teams. Still a lover of winter, she has traded her days of setting downhill records for the enjoyment of the uphill climb of backcountry skiing (which is also followed by some downhill bliss). When not teaching in the classroom or on the slopes through Maine Adaptive or on the turf field for field hockey, Ms. Doyon spends Maine’s warmer months cycling, swimming with her two daughters, or baking, fishing, and traveling. Ms. Doyon lives in Bethel with her husband, Joel, their two girls, Gabby and Maggie, and their dog, Baxter.
