It’s not often that someone reaches the "pinnacle" of their athletic career at age 58. That’s exactly the case, however, for an area woman who is likely a familiar face to many in the York County field hockey community.

Cathy Wreski has been officiating high school and college field hockey matches for the past 15 years, including many right here in York County.

Later this month, she’ll be an umpire for the Exin Masters World Cup in Spain. The age-group event is slated for July 27 through August 5 in the Barcelona region. USA Field Hockey will send nine teams to the event — five women’s teams (35s, 40s, 45s, 50s and 55s) and four men’s teams (40s, 45s, 50s and 55s).

“Fifteen years ago, at the age of 43, I never dreamed I would be umpiring at an international event,” said Wreski.
