Rachel Dawson will be representing us in field hockey in London.  She grew up in Berlin and attended Eastern High School where she graduated in 2003. She has seven siblings and two sisters who also played college field hockey. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2007 and resides in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

She has a really nice blog talking about her childhood and soccer experiences which, unfortunately, isn’t updated anymore but you should still check it out.

There is a really nice blog article written by her on the London2012 blog.  Go check it out:  The Field Hockey Chronicles: The Magic of the Sport, and the Olympics By Rachel Dawson – London2012 Blog,
