In this age of youth-sports specialization when even grade-schoolers often focus on one sport, Lauren Crandall said that doing the opposite helped her on the road to being captain of the U.S. Olympic field hockey team. The Central Bucks East High School graduate, about to be a two-time Olympian at age 27, said it is an advantage starting a sport at a young age. Her issue is the one-sport emphasis. "It's just sad. You can learn a lot the more sports you play," Crandall said. "I think I picked up a lot about movement on the field from playing soccer.

Third in a series of previews, leading to the Olympics. KATE BARBER WILL look down at her two reminders more than a few times over the next 3 weeks. When her legs are aching and her joints burn, the captain of the U.S. Olympic field hockey team will glance at the breast-cancer bracelet that is no longer pink, more like a whitish hue, and her left wristband that bears the letters "Ma" and "BB" in black magic marker. It's Barber's motivation. Barbara Barber never missed a game her daughter played at Unionville High School.

Women's field hockey will pop up on TV screens this July, if only for a game on an afternoon - like many Olympic sports. And some familiar names will be on the United States roster. On Monday, U.S. coach Lee Bodimeade announced his 16-player roster, which is stocked with area athletes. They include captain Lauren Crandall, a Central Bucks East graduate; Rachel Dawson (Eastern Regional); Katie O'Donnell (Wissahickon); and Michelle Vittese (Camden Catholic). The team also features a pair of Mount St. Joseph Academy alumnae: sisters Julia and Katie Reinprecht of Perkasie.

Wissahickon sophomore Katie O'Donnell is part of the new look of a young U.S. National Field Hockey team that will play its first international competition this month when the team travels to New Zealand for a five-match series. O'Donnell, the youngest member of the touring squad, and former Central Bucks East standout Lauren Crandall are two of the nine players who will be making their senior team debuts on the tour. Both were members of the U.S. Junior National team that won a silver medal in March at the Pan American Games in Puerto Rico.

LONDON - The chants of "USA" swarmed Riverbank Arena, which was chilly, damp, and mostly quiet to that point. Then, one fan sitting in the highest section - where the blue and pink painted venue met the black night sky - yelled out, "Lauren Crandall, you're my hero!" For that moment, the Central Bucks East graduate was a hero, scoring a goal with 14 minutes remaining in the second half to cut Germany's lead to 2-1. The buzz remained in the stadium as the clock ticked down slowly.

LONDON - Lauren Crandall stood on the stroke line and stared straight ahead, right through the helmet of Australian goalie Toni Cronk. Crandall had a plan for the penalty stroke. It was just her and the goalie, and the captain of the U.S. field hockey team was going to aim for the bottom left corner. "It went exactly where I wanted it to go," the Central Bucks East graduate said. "I just didn't want her to save it. " But Crandall's miss was just one of several lost opportunities for Team USA in its 1-0 loss to Australia on Thursday at Riverbank Arena.

LONDON - The U.S. women's field hockey team learned two things Tuesday night. One, that shocking Pan Am Games victory over Argentina last year was no fluke. Two, they learned just how long 42 minutes can be. That's how long the U.S. team had to protect its 1-0 lead against an international powerhouse that had routed South Africa, 7-1, two days earlier. "It was a little rough," Cherry Hill's Michelle Vittese said. "[Argentina] is a team that is capable of pretty much anything, with any amount of time on the clock.

AS LEGEND GOES, an Englishwoman named Constance Applebee brought field hockey to the United States, more specifically to upstate New York, in 1901. Within 20 years, Applebee and her teachings had made their way south to Philadelphia, where she began coaching at Bryn Mawr College. In 1920, she took a team of Philly-area women across the pond to England to compete against the world's best. Just like that, Philadelphia was officially on its way to becoming an American field hockey hotbed.
