Paige Christiansen was the lone representative of the Nansemond-Suffolk Academy field hockey program on the all-state team.

Christiansen, who was the only senior on the team this year, received second-team honors.

“She had a phenomenal season,” Lady Saints coach Ashley Skinner said. “She’s such a leader on the field, and it’s been a pleasure coaching her the last five years. She has such great work ethic and sets the pace for her teammates in practice and games.”
