Shrewsbury senior captain Megan Waite leads the Colonials field hockey squad.
For Shrewsbury High School Senior Megan Waite there’s no time like the present. As a four-year member of the Shrewsbury field hockey program and a 2011 captain of the Colonials, Waite knows what it takes to be successful in the Shrewsbury system.

A key to the strong showing in the early stages of the season is the play of Waite. “She’s been very strong for us so far this season. She’s a forward but she’s bounced around and played several different positions,” said Shrewsbury Head Coach Lauren Chenervert, now in her 13th year on the Colonials bench. “She wasn’t fully 100 percent today because she got hurt in our last game but when she’s …

We’re a completely different team when he’s on the mound,” said Shrewsbury manager Lee Diamantopoulos. “He’s one of those kids who bring the intangibles and a level of toughness to the field everyday.
