From Perry Hall High's online newspaper

In life, situations can go from happy and exciting to gloomy and traumatic in a matter of seconds. Last night, September 27, 2011 the JV and Varsity Field Hockey teams experienced one of these moments. Shortly after scoring the winning goal, her second of the afternoon, a freshman on the JV team collapsed on the field at Catonsville High School. The coaches and athletic director rushed to provide medical assistance. The staff administered CPR immediately, which saved the young athlete's life.

While CPR was being administered, another person present at the game called 911 for an ambulance. Upon the arrival of paramedics, she was breathing but remained unconscious. The Varsity game, which was scheduled to directly follow the JV match, was postponed.
