The Bears return 16 squad members from the 2010 season, only losing four members to graduation. There will be nine new faces on the Bears’ field hockey roster, all looking to step in and make an immediate impact at Missouri State. The Bears’ newcomers are laced in a web of connections with four of the incoming freshmen having played together on the same club team, Gina Brahm, Abbey Heller, and Marisa Hendel. Brahm attended Ursuline Academy together, as well as Bears’ incoming freshman, Maggie Tayon. Hendel and Heller also played high school field hockey together at Marquette High. Newcomer Ashlyn Pooler joins fellow Huntington Beach High graduate, Meagen Good, a sophomore, and Sarah Bradley joins her fellow Aussie club teammate, senior Casey Bayliss. THE NEWCOMERS The Bears will feature nine new faces this season, all of which are true freshmen. One of the top newcomers for the 2011 season is midfielder, Sarah Bradley. Bradley “will act as the heart of the team”, according to Bears’ Assistant Coach Erika Dombkowski. Bradley will join former club teammate, Casey Bayliss, who has already greatly proven her abilities here at Missouri State in her premiere season last year as the Bears’ top offensive threat. Bradley looks to compliment Bayliss in the midfield using her keen knowledge of the game and great skills making herself a major threat on the offensive corners. Another key newcomer to watch for the Bears this season will be incoming freshman Abbey Heller (foward/ midfielder). Heller has great ball handling techniques and is a smart player that reads plays well. She has a great knowledge of the game and will look to challenge the returners for a spot in the midfield and forward positions. Rounding out the Bears’ recruiting class will be Gina Brahm (defender/ midfielder), Marisa Hendel (defender/ midfielder), Lauren Lewandowski (defender), Ashlyn Pooler (midfielder), Maggie Tayon (forward/midfielder) and Claire Troll (forward). Brahm, Heller, Hendel, Lewandowski and Troll all come from strong high school and club programs in the St. Louis area. Pooler comes from the same solid Huntington Beach High program senior Ramie Masters came from. Those seven plus Senior Casey Bayliss will look to lead the Bears’ attack this season. Bears Field Hockey Tayon, will look to push their teammates to prepare for the tough season ahead of them. THE FORWARDS Leading the Bears’ offensive attack this season will be senior Casey Bayliss. Bayliss is coming off a phenomenal 2010 season at Missouri State leading all the Bears’ offensive stats with nine goals, six assists, 24 points, 61 shots, 42 shots on goal, and one game-winning goal. The all-conference first-team selection will be expected to bring leadership to the Bears this season. Bayliss has a great awareness of the field and knows how to be in the right place at the right time. She is anticipated to continue her role as Missouri State’s number one offensive threat. Bayliss will be accompanied by Hillary Lawless and Kristi O’Connor in the forward line. O’Connor brings focus and quickness to the field which allow her to easily beat an opponent. Last season, Lawless used her incredible speed to create a lot of one-on-one situations with the goalkeeper, making her a serious offensive threat for the Bears. Catrina Schmidt will also bring depth to the forward position, coming off a successful sophomore season. Schmidt uses her smarts to see the field field and is 2011 Guide 3 2011 Missouri State Field Hockey Outlook always looking for the pass. She will better her teammates by forcing them to be in the right place on the field. Junior Kristin Pettey will be another force along the forward line, coming back strong from an injury that sidelined her for most of last season. Pettey connects well with the team and has impeccable communication skills that will help her teammates on the field. She will look to be another offensive threat as well. THE MIDFIELDERS The midfield will find experience and strong leadership skills in senior Sarah Cusick. Cusick will be counted on to help transition the ball from the backfield to forward line. Her unselfishness and experience will help to set up the Bears’ offensive attack. Cusick ranked second on the team last season in goals and points and has the most career starts of any of the Bears’ returners. Laura Tavares will look to build on a stellar freshman season, tying for third on the team with four goals last season. She is a skilled midfielder that will be a major contributor in establishing the Bears’ attacking offense. Senior Lori Sinclair will accompany both Cusick and Tavares in the midfield. Sinclair will be a tough obstacle for any opponent to overcome. Sinclair and Cusick are tied for the most games (60) of any returner. THE DEFENDERS Junior Reiann Stoute will lead the Bears’ defense this season, bringing excellent communication skills to coordinate the team. Stoute will continue to do a great job of keeping her stick low to the ground and racking up a plethora of block tackles. Chelsey “Every game is going to be an important one.” -Head Coach Gabby Gomez Sosa Medlock is another strong returner to the Bears’ defensive line, creating a solid backfield. “There will be a lot of competition in the backfield, but this will just lead to the defense becoming stronger”, explains Bears’ Assistant Coach Erika Dombkowski. Returners a and newcomers alike, will l look to gain playing time w while pushing each other t a higher level. to Reiann Stoute T THE GOALKEEPERS With the Bears’ got to goalkeeper, Steph A Anderson, out at the start o season due to injury, of r returners Andrea Bain and K Katie Mulloy will compete w with one another for the s starting position in goal. B Bain split time last season w with Anderson, amassing 6 62 saves and a save p percentage of .697. Bain i great at communicating is a and knows what needs t be done to lead the to t team. Though Mulloy did n not appear in a game l last season, she will push B Bain in a lot of head-toh head competitions for the k keeper position. Mulloy a comes from a standout also h high school program, L Lakes Community High, in L Lake Villa, Illinois. She was 4 Missouri State University Sarah Cusick amed Goalkeeper of the Year for the named state of Illinois her senior season, in which she set her high school’s record with eight shutouts and 257 saves.

The schedule kicks-off their 41st season of play with a five game road stint, beginning Aug. 27 and 28 in St. Louis with matchups against Sacred Heart and St. Louis University, respectively. MSU then travels to Bloomington, Indiana to face yet another nonconference competitor, Indiana University. The Bears then head to Louisville, Kentucky to play a pair of matches at Trager Stadium against the University of Louisville Cardinals and the Mountaineers of Appalachian State University on Sept. 9 and 10. “We’re really excited about our fall schedule,” said Gomez-Sosa. “Every game is going to be an important one. Our non-conference matches against teams like Iowa, Indiana, and Louisville are simply going to challenge us and better prepare us for our tough conference matchups.” MSU will then take on St. Louis University in the Bears home opener on Sept. 15, but will quickly turnaround just a few days later to head to Iowa City, taking on the Hawkeyes at the University of Iowa.

In head coach Dawn Callahan’s final season at Missouri State, the Bears finished with an overall record of 5-15, going 2-8 in the Mid-American Conference. A slight improvement over the 2009 finish, Missouri State continued to hash it out in tough conference play and an even tougher non-conference play, with matchups against schools like Dartmouth and Northwestern. The Bears saw two overtime matches and two double overtime decisions, losing all four by a single goal. Though it was a season full of upset, the Bears were able to establish a foundation to build on heading into the next season. Missouri State saw some key newcomers and underclassmen step up to take on major roles on the field. Managing to finish in the middle rankings in the majority of the MAC’s statistical categories, the Bears saw vast improvement from the preceding season. They also saw a stellar acknowledgment in individual honors and awards. SHORT LIVED VICTORY The Bears began the 2010 season with an annihilation of Lindenwood as the Lions tried to invade Plaster Field in Missouri State’s home opener. The 7-1 victory on Aug. 28 showed promise for the start of the Bears’ season. Freshman Laura Tavares made an exciting debut in her first season as a Bear, scoring 2 goals in the first match of the season. Junior Sarah Cusick added two goals of her own, while newcomer Casey Bayliss, freshman Hillary Lawless and senior Jennifer Portell each chipped in a goal of their own. The Bears then began their road campaign with two separate tournaments, the first taking place in Hanover, N.H. While there, the Bears’ suffered a pair of losses, falling 1-2 against Fairfield and 3-5 against Dartmouth. Cusick showed consistency by scoring a goal in each game. Freshmen Tavares and Lawless each added a goal apiece in the loss against Dartmouth. The Bears then traveled back to the Show-Me State to the gateway to the west, St. Louis, Mo. The Bears were able to taste their second victory of the season against St. Louis University with a 1-0 decision. Again the victory was short-lived, as the Missouri State suffered a 0-4 loss versus Northwestern. Though the Bears returned home to Plaster Field, they would suffer yet another loss against UC Davis in a devastating double overtime 1-2 final score. Steph Anderson had five saves for the Bears that game, and Catrina Schmidt scored the only goal for Missouri 62 Missouri State University State, her second of the 2010 season. T h e B e a r s then saw two more losses on the road against Indiana a n d Pacific, w i t h scores of 1-4 and 2-4 respectively. Anderson was able to come away with six saves in just under 45 minutes of play, while Lawless was the lone scorer for the Bears in the match against Indiana. Newcomer Bayliss scored the two goals for Missouri State in the loss against Pacific. Missouri State returned home on Sept. 29 to face off against St. Louis for the second time during the 2010 season. The Bears picked up a much needed 5-1 victory over the Billikens, with scoring coming from Bayliss (2), Lawless (1), Schmidt (1) and Grasso (1). ROUGH PATCH IN THE MIDDLE The Mid-American Conference already holds a reputation for being one of the toughest conferences in the nation, but for the Bears things would only get more tough, as they began conference play with four straight road matches. The Bears kicked off this road game march with a rough 1-2 loss in overtime in Muncie, Ind. versus Ball State. Anderson managed to rack up five saves for MSU and Bayliss knocked in the Bears’ only goal of the match. The Bears were defeated again by both Miami (Ohio) and Ohio University, with both matches leaving MSU scoreless in 0-3 decisions. There was a silver lining in the Bears’ Miami (Ohio) matchup in that freshmen goalkeeper Andrea Bain locked up 11 saves, earning her MAC Player of the Week honors for the week of Oct. 6. Missouri State capped off their road trip with the top ranked MAC team Kent State. The Golden Flashes beat the Bears 1-9 with Bayliss again being the lone scorer for Missouri State. The Bears finally returned home for the final slate of conference play, ttaking ki on C t l Mi hi iin a ttwo d Central Michigan day matchup. On day one, the Chippewas were able to come away with the 2-4 win over MSU, with senior Miyashita and sophomore O’Connor each adding a goal in the Bears loss. But the Bears got revenge on day two, taking down Central Michigan in a 1-0 victory where the senior Miyashita again stepped up to knock in a goal for MSU and Anderson registered six saves. The Bears again felt the thrill of revenge at Plaster Field as they continued the second half of conference play with a rematch against Ball State. MSU came away with a 4-1 victory. Anderson proved herself as a starting goalkeeper, racking up ten saves in the victory. Scoring came from junior Reiann Stoute (2), Bayliss (1) and Cusick (1). Riding the excitement from the previous game, the Bears fought tooth and nail into overtime against Miami (Ohio) but unfortunately came up short, losing 2-3. Bain had another standout performance with ten saves in the matchup, while scoring came from both O’Connor and Tavares. The Bears saw another devastating loss at home against Ohio. MSU fought hard with Anderson doing her best to protect the goal. Anderson registered yet another double digit saves game with 11. O’Connor had the Bears’ only goal of the match but MSU was able to get off 14 shots, 13 of those being shots on goal. Unfortunately, the Bobcats were too much to handle as the Bears fell 1-2 in double overtime. The Bears suffered yet another loss in the final match of regular season play as Kent State ventured to Plaster Field. MSU fell 2-4 with goals coming from O’Connor and Stoute. Though the score missouristatebears.com 2010 Field Hockey Season Review wouldn’t show it, Bain had yet another stellar performance in the box for the Bears, racking up an astonishing 15 saves in the loss. THE MAC DADDY OF CLOSE CALLS Despite the Bears’ up and down season, they marched ahead to post season play looking to make a difference in the MidAmerican Conference Championships. Missouri State traveled up north to Mt. Pleasant, Mich. to face off against the Chippewas of Central Michigan. Though the Bears had experienced a great amount of heartache throughout the 2010 season, with two overtime losses and two double overtime losses, they optimistically looked to lengthen their season in post season play. For a moment, it seemed as though the Bears would succeed as the match against Central Michigan remained tied 1-1 in the 55th minute of play. Controversy soon erupted, however, as CMU’s Pam Seufert took a shot from seven yards out. As Bears’ goalkeeper Andrea Bain dove to make the save, the ball ricocheted off Bain’s pads and into the air. MSU defender Chelsey Medlock appeared to make a defensive save from behind Bain to prevent the goal, however, the official nearest the play ruled the ball had already crossed the goal line before Medlock stopped it. Despite arguing the call, the Bears were forced to accept the official’s ruling, putting the Chippewas ahead 2-1. The loss to CMU added yet another Bears Field Hockey heartbreak to the Bears 2010 season. Though the goal was controversial, the Bears still had opportunities to tie up the match, earning three corners in the second half, but unable to capitalize on any of them. MSU put a great amount of pressure on the CMU defense but were unable to obtain the much needed second goal. The Bears’ last chance came in the last 30 seconds of play as they earned a penalty corner, but the attempt was blocked and Central Michigan was able to clear the ball out and allow time to expire. Bayliss knocked in the only goal for the Bears in the match, her ninth of the season. Bayliss’ goal came from a penalty corner late in the first half. BEARS RACK UP INDIVIDUAL HONORS Though the Bears faced a lot of frustration during the 2010 season, they did walk away with a long list of individual honors and achievements. MSU saw first and second team allconference selections, as well as academic honors and player of the week honors. The Bears also topped a few of the statistical categories in the MidAmerican Conference this last season. Newcomer Casey Bayliss made a strong impact on the Bears in her first season, being the team’s top offensive threat and leading Missouri State in all offensive categories. Bayliss also earned First-Team All-Mid-American Conference honors, racking up nine goals and six assists during the 2010 season for a total of 24 points. Bayliss’ stats earned her a MAC ranking of ninth in both goals and points. Senior Amanda Miyashita earned Second-Team All-Mid-American Conference honors racking up two goals and three assists for a total of seven points and adding a defensive save throughout the season. Anderson and Bain also showed the Bears’ success in the post-season rankings. Anderson played and started in 13 of the Bears games for the 2010 season, ranking fourth in conference with 93 saves. Anderson was the number one goalkeeper in saves per game (7.15) and save percentage (.762). Anderson proved to not only be a standout on the field, but off the field as well making the 2010 Academic All-MAC Field Hockey Team. Anderson compiled a 3.97 GPA, exceeding the 3.20 cumulative GPA minimum requirement to earn the honor. Fellow goalkeeper, Andrea Bain, was honored as a MAC Player of the Week on Oct. 6 for her efforts in the loss against Miami (Ohio) at Plaster Field, in which she tallied 11 saves. Bain also found some top rankings in the MAC preseason statistics. She ranked eigth in saves (62), fifth in saves per game (5.64) and fourth in save percentage (.697).
