COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - August 8, 2018 - The inaugural Hall of Fame class for District 11 in Pennsylvania was formally announced last week. Among the first class' 14 members is a legendary, and familiar field hockey coach. 

Emmaus High School Head Coach Sue Butz-Stavin, the most winningest high school field hockey coach in United States history, will take her rightful place as a local legend at a ceremony on October 14 in Upper Macungie Township (Breinigsville), Pa. Butz-Stavin, who currently holds more than 900 career wins, was selected with the rest of the 2018 class for high school sports accomplishments.

"A wonderful honor to be part of the inaugural class of the District 11 Hall of Fame," said Butz-Stavin. "Some mighty fine company! The accomplishments go out to the coaching staff, players and families for their dedication and support of our program. Emmaus Field Hockey takes pride in their work ethics and preparation to perform as a unified team. Many credits go out to my parents, sisters and husband for their support and wisdom."

Butz-Stavin has led the Green Hornets since 1976 and is a current member of the National Field Hockey Hall of Fame. She became the country's most winningest high school field hockey coach in September 2015 in her 840th career victory. Her accolades in the sport also include National High School Coach of the Year and U.S. Olympic Committee Development Coach of the Year on top of being an ever-present icon that has helped athletes continue their careers at colleges across the country and beyond.

USA Field Hockey would like to congratulate Butz-Stavin on her recent honor and wishes the best of luck as her career continues this season!
