Valley Christian Names Taylor Dempsey Head Girls Field Hockey Coach
September 4, 2020 – Valley Christian High School is pleased to announce the hiring of Taylor Dempsey as head girl’s field hockey coach. Dempsey arrives at Valley Christian having recently completed a successful NCAA Division I career at the University of the Pacific, a member of the 2019 U.S. Women’s Field Hockey National Development Squad and as an assistant coach at Cornell University.
“I am tremendously excited to be a part of the Valley Christian family and lead the girl’s field hockey program,” Dempsey said.
Dempsey fills the role vacated by Edie Ekstrand, who served as Valley Christian’s head girl’s field hockey coach in its inaugural 2019 season. Coach Ekstrand has since relocated to the East Coast with her family.
“We are very excited to bring Taylor Dempsey on board to lead our girl’s field hockey program,” said Ryan Realini, Valley Christian High School Athletic Director. “We feel great about Coach Dempsey and her ability to build on our successes of the first year and to develop meaningful relationships with the girls in the program.”
