The Sacred Heart Academy field hockey team placed third at the Huskie Invitational in Chicago this past weekend.

The Valkyries began the weekend with a 1-3 loss to Pioneer. The team was not pleased, but kept their spirits high.

Hungry for a win, the Valkyries beat Glenbar West 2-1 in their second game. They continued on with another win, defeating Manual 2-0 in their third game.

Lastly, the team competed against their rival, Assumption. SHA and AHS have competed three times this season, Assumption walking away with two of the wins. The Valkyries lost to Assumption 2-1 in their last game of the weekend.

“I felt like our team played very hard and as a unit,” senior Lauren Szwarc said.

The Valkyries Are back in action against Mercy at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 27 at home.
