Coach Oma has been an inspiration to many youth, high school and collegiate field hockey players who have passed through the youth and high school programs here in the Northshire. Her dedication, her passion and her love for the game will live on. Coach Oma has recently moved away to be closer to her grand kids, but her love of field hockey will be here forever.
