The senior forward scored three game-winning goals against ranked teams last week, as the defending Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference champions improved to 6-0. Cole scored winning goals against No. 15 Severn (1-0), No. 13 Century (2-0) and then-No. 7 Archbishop Spalding (2-1). She also had an assist at Century. For the season, she has four goals and one assist. A field hockey player since the seventh grade, Cole played in the U.S. Field Hockey Association's Olympic-development style Futures Program in her freshman and sophomore years.
