Donegal Field Hockey Player Sets New National Record for Career Goals

A Donegal High School student just broke a national record! Mackenzie Allessie is now the nation’s most prolific high school field hockey goal scorer.

Allessie become the National Federation of High Schools record holder for career field hockey goals during Donegal’s 9-0 win over Annville-Cleona.

The Donegal senior now has 331 career goals, breaking the previous record of 328 held by former Eastern Regional (N.J.) standout Austyn Cuneo. Cuneo, a redshirt junior on Rutgers’ field hockey squad, held the NFHS record since 2014.

“It feels amazing,” said Allessie, speaking to PennLive about setting the new record. “I am honored and overwhelmed by all the support I have. I couldn’t have done it without my coaches, teammates, family and friends.”

Allessie will be playing field hockey for Ohio State next year.
