Varsity Field Hockey
Head Coach: Caroline Blaum
Recruited as a junior at Wyoming Seminary, Blaum chose to play Division 1 field hockey for the University of Iowa.
While at Iowa, she was a four year team captain, four-time recipient of the prestigious Dr. Christine Grant Leadership Award, and twice received The Nancy McClinden Carr Award. Blaum’s other honors while playing in college include being selected as a First Team National All-American, First Team All Big Ten, a Big Ten Tournament MVP, and leading her team to the 2008 NCAA Final Four in her senior year.
After graduating from Iowa in 2008, Blaum was thrilled to be selected to the US Women’s National Field Hockey Team. In her second year on the National Team, she also accepted the position of assistant field hockey coach at her college alma mater. Though she loved playing and coaching the sport, “I didn’t feel like I was doing any one thing 110 percent,” she explains. Since Blaum loves working with kids, she decided to direct her passion for field hockey towards coaching high school students.
