Gazette Preps Peak Performer: Keelin Broeker, Palmer Ridge field hockey

Tue, Sep 27, 2016 - 4:43 PM

No matter what the sport, if the opposition can't score, it's a recipe for success.

Palmer Ridge field hockey is taking that quite literally, led by goalkeeper Keelin Broeker. The Bears are 7-0-1, and haven't allowed a goal in 490 minutes of game action.

"Going into the season, I set a goal to not get scored on, so going into every game I know I have to go attack the ball when it's down by my end of the field," Broeker said. "The mental part of the game is the hardest. If you aren't facing a lot of shots you have to find a way to keep yourself in the game, and if you are, you have to stay calm."

The Bears have emerged as one of the best - if not the best - teams in the state.
