Don't stop him now: Bermudian Springs field hockey coach notches 300th victory

YORK SPRINGS, Pa. - September 25, 2019 - Crouched with his hands on his knees as his players set up yet another penalty corner opportunity, Bermudian Springs field hockey coach Neil Bixler matched his team's intensity from the sidelines.

He also matched the ribbons in their hair with one adorned to the back of his baseball cap.

"Each game, one of the girls brings ribbons for everybody to wear, so I don’t wear it in my hair, but I put it in the back of my hat," Bixler said. "It’s sort of a custom we have...It's a tight group."

Bermudian Springs, a field hockey powerhouse in Division III, dominated Gettysburg, 6-0, at home on Tuesday night to stay undefeated on the season. The team's 11th straight win came as a milestone for Bixler, who earned his 300th victory in his 19th season coaching the Eagles.
