Greetings from Fairport, NY. My name is Jillian Ambler and I am a junior at Fairport High School in Fairport, NY, just outside of Rochester, NY.
I began playing field hockey in the seventh grade at the modified level, while still training and competing as a level 8 gymnast. Over the next year, I really developed a love of the game and decided that I wanted to commit more time to the sport of field hockey. So after playing modified again in eighth grade, I decided to “retire” from competitive gymnastics and focus on field hockey.
I spent the summer before ninth grade practicing and playing whenever I could. I worked closely with coaches and mentors to further develop my skills. One of my greatest accomplishments was making the varsity team as a freshman in high school in the fall of 2019. Through the season, I worked hard to build up playing time at each game and eventually worked my way into the starting line up during the middle of season.
During the Fall 2020 Field Hockey Season, I led my team in both goals and assists. This accomplishment helped me to receive First Team All League honors, as well as being named to the All Greater Rochester Honorable Mention list for Field Hockey.
I am excited to start a brand new field hockey season at Fairport High School in the fall of 2021, as well as continuing to participate on an elite club team through Empire United Field Hockey.
