Meet The Captains: Meghan Mitchell, New Canaan Field Hockey

New Canaan’s Meghan Mitchell, a captain on the Rams’ field hockey team.

Being named a captain of a high school sports team is a huge honor for athletes. Those who earn the captain’s role are leaders for their peers both on and off the field, and take on a great responsibility to their teammates and coaches. The FCIAC is honoring these leaders with the “Meet The Captains” feature. Throughout the fall season, each captain will be recognized on, complete with photos and a comment from their coaches.

Congratulations to all of our fall captains!
