Kate Hall has a knack for being in the right place at the right time.

As a freshman on the South Burlington High School varsity field hockey team, Hall rushed the net off a set piece and deposited a game-winning goal against Mount Mansfield to send South Burlington to the finals in 2015.

Fast-forward nearly seven years to the day and Hall still finds herself in the right place, but with the University of Vermont field hockey team.

“I just play a really simple game, I’ll never be the most skilled player on the team,” Hall said of her role with the Catamounts. “There’s girls who come from very serious backgrounds and I know my background is not nearly as impressive. However, I just try to keep it simple and I always can play smarter.”

The reserved Hall captains the Catamounts and is tied for second on the team with goals (5) and third in points tallied (13) ahead of Vermont’s final road game of the regular season against No. 23 Maine on Friday. Hall started playing field hockey in middle school and exploded onto the scene under the tutelage of Wolves’ high school coach Anjie Soucy.
