Thayer Academy announces that Kathleen Boyle will be the new varsity field hockey head coach for the fall 2020 season.
"We're really excited about this," said Athletics Director Rick Foresteire P '19, '21, who touted Boyle's enthusiasm, experience, and organizational skills. "She brings a lot to the table."
Boyle is the founder and director of True Grit Field Hockey Club, which offers skills training and/or club-level gameplay for levels U8 through U19 throughout the South Shore. She serves as head coach of the club's U14-U19 teams and oversees its youth development programming.
At Dartmouth High School, Boyle captained the school's only Division 1 state champion field hockey team and earned induction into that school's athletic hall of fame.
Boyle then attended Dartmouth College, where she earned her bachelor's degree and was a four-year starter for the Division 1 Ivy League field hockey team.
Boyle seeks "to inspire competitive, skilled, passionate athletes who develop leadership, character, confidence, and teamwork through student-athlete experiences." She lives in Scituate with her husband Terry and their three children.
