Honored Team: 1996 Field Hockey Team
While the Washington College Hall of Fame does not induct teams, it does, on occasion, honor past teams during its annual induction ceremony. In 1996, the Washington College field hockey team became just the second women's team in any sport in the College's history to qualify for the NCAA Division III Tournament. The Shorewomen finished the season with a 13-5 record under the direction of head coach Sarah Feyerherm, who was named the South Region Coach of the Year.
