Whitney Charbonneau acknowledged that the Stuart Country Day field hockey team sorely needed a lift as it hosted Academy of New Church (ANC) last Friday. “We have had kind of a rocky start to the season so far,” said senior forward Charbonneau of the Stuart squad, which entered the game mired in a three-game losing streak. “Our past couple of losses have been a tad disheartening.”

Charbonneau showed heart and skill Friday, scoring two goals and assisting on another as the Tartans scored six unanswered goals in the first 18 minutes of the game with ANC.
