STAMFORD—She has an unassuming appearance, is shy and laconic around people she does not know well, and can easily blend into the crowd.
Then Westhill’s Emma Hart steps onto the playing field, and her alter ego takes control.
“I’m a very competitive person,” said Hart, a senior who has been a four-year starter for both the Vikings’ field hockey and softball teams. “I just hate losing more than anything, so I get like feisty.”
That spirited attitude has carried her well. A midfielder, Hart will be one of the captains of the field hockey team this fall, looking to improve on a year ago, when it was 7-9-1, losing to eventual champion Darien in the first round of the state tournament.
