The Oley Valley field hockey team made one of the deepest runs of any high school team in the viewing area last year, advancing as far as the PIAA-AA semifinals.
But many of the star players from that team were lost to graduation. Skyler Fretz, Jamie Fries, Maggie Fries and Erin Gillingham were among that crop of talent that lead Oley deep into the postseason.
The Lynx will turn to their younger talent this year. The team knows the talent is there, it's just a matter of getting the freshmen up to speed at the varsity level.
Carly Kauffman and Thalia Williamson highlights Oley Valley's returners.
