USA Captain, Kate Barber, officially announces retirement

Kate “Tiki” Barber has officially announced her retirement from international competition. US Field Hockey posted a recap of her career highlighting not only her on field success, but most importantly her leadership and personality traits that have made her a hero of mine and every field hockey player in the nation.

Quotes from the Worlds best coaches and players have nothing but the utmost respect for Tiki, praising her lead-by-example attitude and determination to reach her goals.

I am proud to know Tiki, have experienced her fire first hand and know her legacy will continue to motivate and inspire athletes all over the world.

Thank you, Tiki, thank you for being a role model, thank you for following your dream, thank you for pushing your teammates to also follow their dreams, thank you for making USA field hockey what it is today, thank you for representing The University of North Carolina, thank you for setting the standard for the rest of us, and thank you, above all, for showing the world how to be a world class athlete on and off the field.
