WHO ARE FAITH AND FLOSSIE?
Faith and Flossie
Faith and Flossie both coached field hockey and lacrosse at Bonny Eagle High School. Each made a lasting impact on the players, the community, and the Maine State high school sports system.
Coach Littlefield racked up an unprecedented 339-100-33 record, including 8 state championships. She was gruff, demanding, and always happy to offer her unfiltered opinions. But beneath the tough exterior she was caring, helpful, and loyal.
Coach Smith joined the Bonny Eagle field hockey coaching staff in 1997 after nearly 30 years as one of the nation’s top field hockey referees. She was like a mother to her players, her nurturing style an effective contrast to Littlefield’s tougher demeanor.
Smith was also the head coach of Bonny Eagle’s first girls’ lacrosse team. Within three years her team won the state championship, racking up a 53-8 record along the way. Faith and Flossie also shared a close friendship, and were called “The Dream Team” when they joined forces to coach together.
Faith Littlefield passed away from lung cancer in 2001. Flossie Smith passed away from breast cancer in 2002. Their legacy lives on with their winning records, and most importantly in the hearts of their players. The scholarship fund maintains their spirit by rewarding female field hockey or lacrosse players who are committed to community involvement.
