ROYERSFORD — Spring-Ford’s Gabby Major possesses a dazzling blend of stickwork and speed, tools that made her the Queen of the circle this fall when it came to Pioneer Athletic Conference field hockey.
Major, a junior forward who netted a team-high 37 goals for the PAC-10 champion Rams, is The Mercury’s 2012 All-Area Field Hockey Player of the Year.
The daughter of Paul and Maisie Major, Gabby joins older brother Paul (last year’s All-Area Boys Lacrosse Player of the Year) as a rare sibling duo to earn that accolade.
A three-time first-team All-Area selection who has already committed to the University of North Carolina, Major helped Spring-Ford bring home its first league championship in 11 years and was a big reason why the Rams won their first 19 games before a season-ending loss in the first round of the District 1-Class AAAA playoffs.
