Milford Field Hockey to Honor Humiston

The Milford High School field hockey team will honor alumnus of its program, Alexandra Humiston, on October 6. Humiston passed away in February at the age of 26 after a single car accident.
The evening will include a raffle and a bake sale with all of the proceeds going towards a scholarship in her name. Milford head coach Emily Abbondanza-Luuri says the scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior who exhibits the personality traits that made Humiston such a memorable and beloved member of the Milford field hockey and Milford High School family.
"She had such a great personality and a big heart, she was always smiling," Abbondanza-Luuri said. "That's why we are doing this, we want to give it to someone like her."
A moment of silence will be held prior to the Scarlet Hawks' game against Taunton and programs commemorating the evening will be available. The game is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.
Humiston graduated Milford High in 2006. She was a member of the field hockey team and an active participant in the alumni games after graduation. She and Abbondanza-Luuri were teammates and became close friends after high school.
"We weren't always a winning team, but she always had such a positive attitude," Abbondanza-Luuri said. "She loved the game and loved the team and made you want to come to practice and work hard. She played in all of our alumni games and was part of our adult alumni team. After the games, we would always go out and reminisce."
Both Milford and Taunton will name players of the game after the contest on October 6. The scholarship will be awarded at the end of this school year during Senior Night.
"Alex made field hockey more fun, and she was a big part of our field hockey community both in high school and beyond," Abbondanza-Luuri said. "She was just fantastic."
