Meet The Captains: Emily Gaeta, New Canaan Field Hockey

New Canaan field hockey co-captain Emily Gaeta.

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!

Head Coach Kelly Marks: “I know that I can count on her to save the initial shot and the rebound shot. She’s got a good voice, she knows what she’s talking about, and she knows what she wants.”
