Faith Anthony is a hockey defenseman — err, a girl who plays outstanding defense on the ice.

But Anthony said she is willing to help her new college team at any position.

“If they need me to play forward I can, and will, said Anthony, a Penn-Trafford junior.

Anthony, a rising standout on the local girls hockey circuit, committed recently to play at Franklin Pierce, a Division I independent in Rindge, N.H.

Outside of the high school season, Anthony plays for the North American Hockey Academy and the Pittsburgh Penguins Elite 19-U team.

“Franklin Pierce has a beautiful campus and for me was just the right fit,” Anthony said. “The coaching staff was extremely nice and I also love the location.”

As with any talented youth hockey player in the region, the game has taken her places. Anthony has played for a prep team the last two seasons in Vermont, where she’s lived from September to March.

Last season, she had 16 goals and 21 assists for her academy team.
