Nansemond-Suffolk Academy field hockey coach Ashley Skinner pointed to last season as a positive turning point for her team, and the Lady Saints seemed to build off of that turn in their 2015 season-opener on Tuesday.NSA started the year with a shutout, defeating visiting Bruton High School 2-0. “We were very proud of this game,” Skinner said. “The past two years Bruton has beaten us — last year was (6)-0, the year before was 12-(1), so we were very excited about this win.” To read the full article in the Suffolk News-Herald, please click here.
