A Family Affair: Rye Neck-Holy Child Field Hockey

RYE, N.Y. -- When Nicole Miller first looked at her schedule and saw she and her Rye Neck teammates would be playing Holy Child in field hockey, she said she was excited. Miller would have the opportunity to play against her aunt, Cheryl O’Shea, assistant coach for Holy Child.

O’Shea, as well as Barbara Lorys, Holy Child coach, and Tricia Miller, Nicole’s mom and O’Shea’s sister, were all standout field hockey players for retired legendary coach Gail Stevenson at Rye Neck.

“We have family dinners every Sunday at my grandmother’s and when I got home, I called my aunt,” said Miller, a freshman and first-year varsity player, who plays forward and midfield. “My aunt was a great player herself at Rye Neck and coaching Holy Child, she has helped make them a great team.”

The teams played to a 2-2 draw, Monday.

“My mom was a little torn because she didn’t know who to root for,” said Miller, with a laugh.

Once Rye Neck arrived at Holy Child, Miller ran over and embraced her aunt. Miller said she was aware when her aunt instructed her Holy Child players to mark her. Following the game, Miller made sure she gave O’Shea another big hug during the handshake line.

“We talked after the game about what an exciting game it was,” Miller said. “I was happy to be playing against my aunt and I know she was happy to be playing against me.”
