Field Hockey was one of the first offerings in girls sports at Country Day beginning in 1970 with head coach Sue Ellen Miller. The program has had a history of excellence ever since. While there have been several excellent program heads, none has been more successful than Julie Shaw (1983–2002). During her 20 seasons, Coach Shaw led her teams to eight state championships (1983, 1984, 1993, 1994, 1998, 1999, and 2000). Current Head Coach Lisa Thompson has taken the Bucs on eight state championship runs, winning four times (2007, 2009, 2013, and 2014). The Bucs have qualified for the state tournament each year since the inception of the state playoff in 1981, making 23 state championship game appearances.
