She completed her high school field hockey career at Acton-Boxborough Regional High School in 2017 as captain of the team.

She was named to the All-Region team as a junior and senior and in her senior season, she was named a Super 60 All-Star and a Third-Team All American. Caitlin is also a vital part of Cape Ann’s program. As the captain of U19 Black, Caitlin has helped them develop into one of the best teams in New England.  Caitlin will be attending The College of the Holy Cross in the fall to continue her field hockey career.

    Not only has Caitlin brought a lot to her team, but she has also done a lot for the younger teams as well. As a second-year Coach In Training, Caitlin helped coach both U14 indoor teams and traveled to NITs with the Panthers. She also helped coach the U16 indoor teams at both practices and in multiple tournaments. She also helped run the Wednesday night Sudbury Field House skills sessions.
