Kent County High School field hockey alumna Mackenzie Peacock (Class of 2018), who went 18-1 last year as the starting net-minder for Coast-to-Coast Athletic Conference champion Salisbury University, is a newly named volunteer assistant coach at Washington College.

She will work primarily with the Shore ladies’ goalies.

Washington opens Friday, Sept. 1 at Stevenson. This will be Alex Calder’s debut as the Shore ladies’ head coach.

The first home game is noon Sunday, Sept. 3 versus DePauw.

As a senior in 2022 for Salisbury, Peacock was named to the elite first team of the All-Coast-To-Coast (C2C) and National Field Hockey Coaches Association All-Region VI all-star teams.

She started all 19 games for the Sea Gulls.

Peacock’s line included four shutouts, a .764 save percentage and a 0.74 goals-against average.

A team captain, she helped Salisbury reach the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division III Tournament.

She also was a member of the C2C championship team of 2021 and the Capital Athletic Conference championship team of 2019.

There was no season in 2020 due to the ongoing COVID pandemic.

Salisbury reached the Division III national semifinals in 2019 and the Round of 16 in 2021.

Peacock began her collegiate career at NCAA Division I Towson University in 2018; she appeared in 14 games, with 13 starts.

She then transferred to Salisbury.

Peacock received a bachelor’s degree in exercise science from Salisbury in May 2023 and seeks to pursue a career in nursing.

At KCHS, Peacock was selected to the All-Mid-Shore first team in voting by area coaches.
