We may have just witnessed the greatest South Jersey field hockey player in history the past couple of years at Camden Catholic. If she’s not
No. 1 all-time, “OBC” as she’s referred to certainly is in the conversation. Supremely talented with speed, explosiveness, field vision and stick skills, Bent-Cole, a Philadelphia native, can do pretty much whatever she wants on a field hockey field.
She finished her storied Irish career with 128 goals, including 46 as a junior, to go along with 48 assists. She also led Camden Catholic to a 21-1 record last fall that included a Non-Public state championship. Of course, Bent-Cole scored in the 2-1 title game win over Oak Knoll Academy. She also had nearly three times as many goals as any one else on the Irish roster.
The Northwestern University recruit was the state Player of the Year in 2022.
