Anne Parmenter Inducted Into Connecticut Field Hockey Hall of Fame

Head field hockey coach Anne Parmenter was one of nine 2003 inductees into the Connecticut Field Hockey Hall of Fame.  Parmenter was honored at the Hall of Fameís annual dinner and induction ceremony on September 7 at the Aqua Turf Country Club in Southington.

Parmenter has coached field hockey at Trinity and at Connecticut College for 16-plus seasons, compiling a 110-117-3 overall record and leading her field hockey squads to six ECAC Division III New England Championship appearances.  She also serves as assistant womenís lacrosse coach at Trinity, after a successful, 14-year stint as head womenís lacrosse coach and assistant athletic director at Connecticut College. An accomplished field hockey player herself, Parmenter played in the National Festival for 13 years and played in the World Cup with the British National Club Championship Team.

Parmenter notes that the award dinner presented a wonderful chance to catch up with former colleagues and teammates. Of the tribute, she says, ďThis is a great honor, particularly the year after [Associate Athletic Director] Robin Sheppard was given the award. Itís very unusual for a school to have someone receive this acknowledgment two years in a row, and itís nice to follow in Robinís footsteps.Ē
