    Hayley Sutherland

    Coach Hayley Sutherland will be running our Fall Youth program and she is the current Head Coach at Worcester State University.

    Sutherland returns to Worcester State after three years as an assistant coach for MASCAC and LEC rival Fitchburg State University under fellow Worcester State alumna Kim Cosenza. Sutherland also served one year as a coach for Cape Ann Field Hockey Club after graduating from Worcester State.

    As a player, Sutherland captained the Lancers in her senior season in 2017, and was named the LEC Player of the Year and a two-time LEC First Team All-Conference selection. In her senior year, she became the first ever Worcester State field hockey student-athlete to receive All-America honors, she was named a Synapse Sports Third Team All-American.

    “Hayley was a terrific and well-decorated student-athlete for us a short time ago and she has been under the tutelage of Fitchburg State head coach Kim Cosenza for the past three years getting some valuable experience,” said Mudd. “It was important that the person that takes over the field hockey program at Worcester State was familiar with the great culture that the team possesses. Hayley had a big influence on that team’s development into a regional power and I have no doubt she will continue the team on its upward trajectory.”

    “I am so honored to have the opportunity to be a part of the Worcester State field hockey program as head coach,” said Sutherland. “I am looking forward to working with these amazing student-athletes. This program gave me so much as a student-athlete and I can’t wait to give back. I’d like to thank Alexa and Michael for making me a Lancer once again.”
