The Saint Joseph's field hockey program will welcome a new class of student-athletes for the 2019 season. Over the coming weeks, we'll introduce Hawk fans to the new additions, one by one. Today: Caroline Webb.

Caroline Webb, a native of Exton, Pennsylvania, has signed with the Saint Joseph’s field hockey program in advance of the 2019 season.

Webb, a midfielder from Downingtown East High School, helped lead the Cougars to the state semifinals in her freshman season as well as a district runner-up finish.  Downingtown East also reached at least the second round of the district playoffs in each of Webb’s four seasons.  For her efforts, she earned First Team All-Ches-Mont honors and Second Team All-Area accolades as both a junior and senior.

“I’m excited to have the opportunity to be a part of the continued success of the team as well as representing SJU both on and off the field,” Webb said.

“Caroline is a well-rounded player and person with great perspective,” head coach Lynn Farquhar said.  “She is a defensive addition with strong vision and distribution skillsets.”

A product of the prestigious WC Eagles club program, Webb won National Club Championship titles with the club in both 2015 and 2017, as well as six consecutive National Indoor Tournament titles from 2014 to 2019.

Webb is also a member of the lacrosse team at Downingtown East.

“I chose Saint Joseph’s for the combination of strong academics and competitive field hockey, along with the opportunity to learn from a great coaching staff,” she said.

Webb and the rest of the new Hawks will join the squad in time for the 2019 fall season.
