Beverly's Woods commits to Louisville

Beverly field hockey junior midfielder Nicole Woods has committed to Louisville, Panthers athletic director James Coffey says.

Named team captain as a sophomore, Woods tallied 11 goals and 21 assists last season while being named a Northeast Conference All-Star for the third straight year. The Salem News Player of the year also participated in the United State Field Hockey Festival last November in Florida.

Woods is a three-sport standout for the Panthers and was an Honorable Mention selection on ESPN Boston's MIAA girls' hockey All-State Team, playing for the Beverly/Danvers co-op squad, in addition to playing lacrosse in the spring.
