"Franklin junior Kaitlyn Carney has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Nov. 8 through Nov. 14. Carney is the 10th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2021-22 school year.
Carney was the Hockomock League’s leading scorer in the regular season, and she has continued that form in the playoffs, leading the Panthers with five goals and two assists in three tournament games, helping the Panthers march to their first state semifinal appearance.
“Kaitlyn proved why she is one of the most talented field hockey players in the state with her goal against Central Catholic and her two goals and assist against Winchester,” said Franklin head coach Michelle Hess. “Her two goals against Winchester were very impressive…one was a beautiful penalty stroke and the other was on a corner top shot that was one of the hardest drives I have seen all year. Kaitlyn is an extremely talented player that gives 110% or more every time she steps on the field!”
