Anyone who has met Maeve Donevan knows she embodies a leader. On and off the field, Maeve demonstrates passion and hard work. I’ve had the pleasure of being friends with Maeve since I was 4. She has been my “summer sister” for many years, and there is no one more deserving of the collegiate field hockey opportunity.

Donevan Defends the play for Dexter

Anyone who has met Maeve Donevan knows she embodies a leader. On and off the field, Maeve demonstrates passion and hard work. I’ve had the pleasure of being friends with Maeve since I was 4. She has been my “summer sister” for many years, and there is no one more deserving of the collegiate field hockey opportunity.

A 3 year varsity letter winner, Maeve has been a staple part of Dexter’s defense each season. Her willingness to give 110% on every play as well as her strong stick in the backfield make Maeve a standout player. She is competitive, athletic, and above all, a hard worker.

One thing that can not be missed when playing with Maeve is her loud voice from the backfield. If there were a statistic for communication, there is no doubt Maeve would lead the team! As a defender, I am endlessly thankful for her ability to direct the players without coming off as rude — a skill that is much harder than it seems.

Off the field, Maeve is energetic and outgoing. Like I said, I have been her friend for many years, so I may have a bit of a bias, but I believe Maeve will be nothing but successful at the collegiate level. Her future teammates and friends are lucky to gain someone who will always have their backs — on and off the field.
