NEWPORT NEWS – Hampton Roads Academy senior Mauri Ware signed her letter of intent to play field hockey at Division I, Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA, on September 16, 2017.

Ware has been a driving force in the Hampton Roads Academy Field Hockey Program. She is an explosive player, playing attacking mid and is the key to HRA’s offensive movement. Over her career at HRA, she tallied 28 goals along with 12 assists. Her junior season she compiled a total of 10 goals and 7 assists. That same year she was selected as team MVP, TCIS 2nd Team All-Conference, and VISAA 2nd Team All-State. Ware started in all 15 games of her senior season where her exceptional stick skills and speed helped the team find the back of the cage. In her senior campaign, as a captain, she boasted a season high of 18 goals, 5 assists and was named to the TCIS 1st Team All-Conference and VISAA 1st Team All-State Team.

An excited Ware signing with her proud parents.

Hampton Roads Academy’s Varsity Field Hockey Coach Lauren Scott has had the pleasure of watching Ware demonstrate strong leadership, and illuminate her love of the game to her teammates. “One of her greatest strengths is her work ethic and her genuine love of the game. While she is our team captain and top player, she is also patient with our new players and leads by example. Mauri has served not only to elevate our game but also to motivate her teammates.”

The community of Hampton Roads Academy is proud to call Mauri a Navigator and congratulates her on this accomplishment.  We wish her the best of luck in the 2018 season.
