Hannah Murphy a star at Duxbury High

Thom Holdgate recalls poking around the athletic complex at Duxbury High on a late summer day nearly four years ago. Friend Weiler , the girls’ hockey coach, had told Holdgate, his athletic director, about a promising freshman athlete.

Holdgate knew that Hannah Murphy was a hockey player, and that her older brother, Ben , had been a standout on the ice at Catholic Memorial. She was going to give field hockey a shot in the fall of 2009.
