Indian Hill field hockey returns most of roster

INDIAN HILL – After meeting Mount Notre Dame to begin the month, the Indian Hill High School field hockey team grappled with the Cougars again on Oct. 21. Unfortunately, it came in a postseason tournament game with MND prevailing, 6-1.

Though a loss, the highlight for Indian Hill was senior Natalie More scoring. It was the first time the Lady Braves had scored against MND in recent memory.
