Alice Puck­ett

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - VARSITY - John Car­roll

Puck­ett’s fi­nal sea­son at the helm also was one of the best in her sto­ried 33-year coach­ing ca­reer.

Com­ing off a two-win sea­son in the In­ter­scholas­tic Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion of Mary­land’s A Con­fer­ence, the Pa­tri­ots found suc­cess in the wide-open B Con­fer­ence, fin­ish­ing 13-5 and suc­ces­sively beat­ing three higher-seeded teams in the playoff — No. 4 Sev­ern, No. 1 Mount de Sales and No. 2

Bryn Mawr — to claim the con­fer­ence ti­tle.

Along the way, Puck­ett, who spent 29 years as the coach at Fall­ston and is con­sid­ered one of the pioneers of Har­ford County field hockey, earned her mile­stone 400th ca­reer win, fin­ish­ing her ca­reer at 401-112-20. For her ef­forts, Puck­ett earns her fourth All-Metro Coach of the Year honor, fol­low­ing pre­vi­ous wins in 1988, 1994 and 1998.
