5-7

wildcat HOCKEY East First Team All-Star selection despite missing the last six games of the season. As a converted forward, she provides an offensive dynamic to the blue line. Birchard ranked fifth in the nation in defenseman scoring (0.81 points per game) as well as 16th in game-winning goals and 17th in power-play goals. Her season totals included 22 points on nine goals and 13 assists. Sheary and Dziengelewski are more of the traditional defensiveminded skaters, but both are adept at transitioning into offense by carrying the puck out of the defensive zone or executing a tape-to-tape pass into the neutral zone. Sheary skated in all 33 games last season and recorded personal single-season bests in both assists (seven) and points (eight). Dziengelewski also played in all 33 games and tied (with Birchard) for third on the team in assists (13) and sixth in points (13). Brock and Chappell are seasoned veterans after just one season as a Wildcat. Both logged lots of ice time last year in a multitude of situations – even strength, power play and penalty kill – to return with a wealth of experience. Farris opened her rookie season of 2010 on the blue line, then skated 10 of the last 12 games of the year as a forward. She recorded all three points (1g, 2a) as a defenseman. The one newcomer to the defensive unit is freshman Margaret Hunt.

DEFENSEMEN It is an understatement to state UNH has experience on defense. The Wildcats boast senior captains Courtney Birchard, Raylen Dziengelewski and Courtney Sheary in addition to sophomores Katie Brock and Kailey Chappell. Bryanna Farris, another second-year player, saw ice time as both a defenseman and forward last season. Birchard was a 2010 RBK/AHCA GOALTENDERS All-America Second Team and Hockey New Hampshire has two proven

New Hampshire has advanced to the NCAA tourney each of the last five years with trips to the Frozen Four in ‘06 and ‘08. The Wildcats have finished first or second in the Hockey East standings all eight years of the league’s existence with a streak of six consecutive titles from 2004-09 (including one shared). The ‘Cats also won the league tourney four straight years (2005-09).

Season Outlook

Introduction The UNH women’s ice hockey team is in an unfamiliar role at the outset of the 2011 season. Underdog. The Wildcats have advanced to the NCAA Women’s Ice Hockey Championship each of the last five years, have finished first or second in the Hockey East standings all eight years of the league’s existence and were not ranked lower than No. 7 in the nation last season. UNH returns 17 letterwinners, including everyone on the blue line and both goaltenders, from last year’s team. But people outside of Durham aren’t expecting the ‘Cats to continue that success this season. The league coaches picked New Hampshire fourth. The Wildcats were selected 10th in one national poll and were unranked in the other; it marked the first time since October 2002 that UNH was unranked. Under the guidance of ninth-year head coach Brian McCloskey, UNH may be reloading its offensive arsenal but the defensive unit will make the Wildcats a formidable foe for any team.

players between the pipes and can rely on both any given day. Senior goalie Kayley Herman went 8-4-3 in 16 games (14 starts) last season. She also had a 1.88 GAA and .913 save percentage with three shutouts. In 75 career games, Herman is 51-13-9 (.760 win percentage) with a 1.65 GAA, .918 save percentage and 14 shutouts. As a freshman in 2008, Herman broke the school single-season records for wins (29) and GAA (1.07); her .938 save percentage ranks third. On UNH’s career leaderboard, Herman ranks third in GAA and fifth in both save percentage and shutouts. She is also fourth in minutes (4447:31) and will ascend into a tie for fourth place (with Cathy Narsiff and Dina Solimini) with her next victory, which will be number 52. Junior netminder Lindsey Minton had an 11-5-2 record in 19 games (all starts) a year ago. Her other statistics included a 1.91 GAA, .908 save percentage and two shutouts.

Season Outlook

wildcat HOCKEY



Minton has a 21-5-2 record (.786 winning percentage) with a 1.84 GAA, .911 save percentage and three shutouts in 31 total games (29 starts) the previous two years. FORWARDS UNH lost its top two point producers – Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award Top 3 Finalist and All-America First Team selection Kelly Paton as well as Micaela Long, who tied Paton for the team lead in points with 51 – from the 2010 season. The sophomore duo of Kristina Lavoie and Kristine Horn will be expected to climb to the top of this year’s scoring list. Lavoie, the 2010 Bauer Hockey East Rookie of the Year, ranked ninth in the nation in rookie scoring a year ago at 0.88 points per game with 29 points (18g, 11a) in 33 games. Lavoie ranked 10th in the nation in power-play goals with a teamhigh seven. She also ranked second on the team in goals as well as third in points, plus/minus (+10) and shooting percentage (.175). And as a freshman, Lavoie’s 11-game goal-scoring streak was the longest by any Wildcat since the 1991 season. Horn tallied eight goals and 13 assists for 21 points in 33 games a year ago. With those numbers, she tied for third on the team in assists and ranked fifth in points. She also ranked fifth in power-play goals with five. Horn proved to be the consummate team player in the 2010 season by making the conversion to defenseman for the last six games due to the injury to Birchard, and she provided an offensive dynamic from the blue line in those games. Julie Allen, a senior, emerged as a scoring threat for the UNH in the 2010 season – her second as a Wildcat – and recorded a team-best .192 shooting percentage. She was one of four ‘Cats to record double digits in goals and her

total of 10 ranked fourth. With three assists, her total of 13 points tied for sixth overall. Allen’s emergence was notable in the second half of the season, when she tallied a point in eight of the last 16 regular-season games. Molly Morrison enters her final collegiate season in 2011. She joined the UNH program last season and tallied three points, all on goals, in 32 games. Morrison was a two-year letterwinner at UVM, where she compiled 13 goals (10 power-play goals) and 14 assists for 27 points in 68 games. She has played in more collegiate games (100) than any other Wildcat. Sarah Cuthbert was a defenseman prior to her arrival in Durham, but she made the switch at the outset of the ‘09 season and skated as a forward again in ‘10. Cuthbert increased her totals from 2-1-3 as a freshman to 3-4-7 last season. She will be looked upon to continue that upward progression as a junior in 2011. Emma Clark enters her junior year in 2011. Last year – her first as a Wildcat after skating for St. Lawrence in 2009 – Clark skated in 29 of 33 games. She makes an impact on the ice with

her speed and tenacity. A trio of other sophomores is also expected to make a bigger impact in point production this season. Brittany Skudder, who was sidelined in 2009 due to a pre-season injury, skated in 28 of 33 games as a freshman in 2010 and tallied 13 points on five goals and eight assists. Paige Goloubef skated in 32 games a year ago and totaled two points (1g, 1a) while Katie Kleinendorst played in 29 games overall, including both postseason games. A quartet of freshmen – Hannah Armstrong, Sarah Campbell, Nicole Gifford and Arielle O’Neill – joins the corps of forwards. SCHEDULE New Hampshire begins the quest for its first NCAA national championship October 2 with a Hockey East league road game against UConn, a team that lost in overtime of the league tournament title game. The Wildcats then play eight consecutive games, including back-toback road trips, against teams from the Empire State. The stretch begins October 8 at

Season Outlook

Syracuse, a team UNH defeated by a one-goal margin at the Whittemore Center last fall. One day later the ‘Cats face off against Colgate, which defeated UNH the last time these teams battled at Starr Rink. New Hampshire returns to New York the following weekend for games against Rensselaer and Union. After opening the season with five road games, UNH plays five straight at home. That homestand begins October 22 against Clarkson and the ‘Cats face

foes Boston College and Northeastern and travel to face 2010 Hockey East regular-season champion Providence College. UNH plays host to regional rivals Harvard (December 9) and Dartmouth (December 11) to close out the 2010 calendar year. The 2011 calendar year starts with a home game vs. Northeastern and continues with a home-and-home series vs. Providence. New Hampshire plays its final nonconference game of the regular season January 18 at Quinnipiac, then closes out the schedule with nine league games. The 2011 postseason commences with the Hockey East Championship Tournament. The quarterfinal round games, which involve the third through six seeds, will be played the weekend of Feb. 26-27. The tourney continues March 5-6 at the site of the No. 1 seed. NCAA postseason play begins March 11-12 with four quarterfinal games on campus sites. The winners advance to the Frozen Four, which will take place March 18 & 20 at Tulio Arena (Erie, Pa.).

Director of Strength and Conditioning

Paul Chapman enters his eighth year as the director of strength and conditioning at the University of New Hampshire. During his tenure at UNH, Chapman helped coordinate the building of the state-of-the-art Jerry Azumah Performance Center and his efforts have been key in guiding UNH student-athletes to NCAA appearances in both women’s and men’s ice hockey, football, gymnastics, women’s volleyball, women’s lacrosse, skiing and track and field. Chapman had been the director of strength and conditioning for the University of North Dakota from 1992-2001 and served there on an interim basis during the 1991-92 season. During his stint with the Fighting Sioux, he worked with head coaches to tailor sports specific strength and conditioning programs for 18 intercollegiate sports. He also oversaw and administered four weight training facilities and supervised a staff on 10 assistants. His efforts were an integral part of a winning tradition at UND, as the football team was the Division II national champions in 2001, the men’s ice hockey team won a Division I national title in 2000 and 1997 and the women’s basketball team was the Division II national champion in 1997, 1998 and 1999. Chapman is a member of the Collegiate Strength an Conditioning Coaches Association (strength and conditioning coach certified), USA Weightlifting (certified level 1 coach), the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and he was the state director of the National Strength and Conditioning Association in North Dakota from 1991-95. He has also authored four publications related to strength and conditioning and has trained and consulted several NFL, CFL and NHL athletes, and prospective athletes preparing for all-star games, bowl games and pre-draft testing. Chapman is a 1990 graduate of Dickinson State University in North Dakota with a B.S. degree in Biology. He then went on to earn at M.S. in Exercise Science from North Dakota in 1994. An outstanding college athlete, Chapman was inducted into the Dickinson State Athletic Hall of Fame for his efforts on the football field. He was a two-time All-America First Team selection as well as an All-America Second Team honoree in his four-year playing career. Upon graduation, he was a fourth-round draft choice of the Saskatchewan Rough Riders in the Canadian Football League. Chapman, 43, and his wife Kimberly have two children, Tyler and Brittani.

Associate Director of Strength and Conditioning

John Ciani is entering his eighth year directing the strength and conditioning program for the UNH women’s ice hockey program. After four years as an assistant coach in the University’s strength and conditioning office, Ciani was promoted to the position of Associate Director of Strength and Conditioning in 2006. Ciani’s efforts have been key in guiding UNH student-athletes to NCAA appearances in both men’s and women’s ice hockey, football, gymnastics, women’s volleyball, women’s lacrosse, skiing and track and field. Coach Ciani is very passionate about his commitment to strength and conditioning. He has taken his wide range of experiences to come up with very distinct hockey-specific training philosophies. In conjunction with the coaching staff, Ciani develops individualized training programs depending on the athlete’s initial evaluation, experience level and current athletic ability. Under Ciani’s program, improvement is not based on how much weight is on the bar or how high an athlete can jump, but rather the health of the player and her performance on the ice. The women’s ice hockey strength and conditioning program created by Ciani utilizes all facets of training, from basic strength training and Olympic Weightlifting to simple conditioning and hockey-specific conditioning that enhances the athlete’s abilities during competition. No single training style dominates the program; Ciani uses a combination of all training techniques for the total development of the student-athlete. Ciani, a native of the San Diego, Calif. area, came to UNH after a stint as assistant strength coach at the University of North Dakota. During his tenure at UND, Ciani worked primarily with the 2001 Division II national championship football team, women’s volleyball and men’s basketball teams. In 2000, John began his career in strength and conditioning at Long Beach State as a graduate assistant working with the perennial national power women’s volleyball team, where he trained many All-American and national team level volleyball players, including Misty May. Ciani received a B.A. degree in Psychology from Long Beach State and worked on his Master’s Degree in Exercise Science at the University of North Dakota.

The two basic goals of the Strength and Conditioning department are injury prevention and performance enhancement for the 20 varsity sports sponsored by the University of new Hampshire. The first goal, injury prevention, revolves around reducing the likelihood of the student-athlete getting injured during games or practice by training the student-athlete as a unit and pinpointing weaknesses in the player that need to be strengthened. The second goal, performance enhancement, centers on making the student-athlete a better student-athlete. This is done by educating student-athletes on a wide range of training from Olympic-style weightlifting to teaching the student-athlete how to move more efficiently while running or during an agility drill. The Strength and Conditioning program plays a vital role in the success of UNH hockey. The student-athletes train year-round to perform at their highest level throughout the season. The UNH women’s ice hockey strength and conditioning program is a comprehensive training program that involves Olympic-style weightlifting, traditional strength training, plyometrics, agility/quickness training and sport-specific conditioning.

UNH is dedicated to enhancing the studentathlete’s ability to achieve academic excellence. Realizing the time commitment the players give to the school, the University administers a comprehensive program of academic support services that is available to Wildcat women’s ice hockey players and all other student-athletes. This program includes the monitoring of academic progress and providing tutorial services, as well as interacting with the academic advisors within the various colleges.

Season Review

wildcat HOCKEY New Hampshire advanced to the NCAA Women’s Ice Hockey Championship tournament for the fifth consecutive year in 2010 and ended the year with an overall record of 19-9-5. The Wildcats competed in a game for the history books – the 2010 Sun Life Frozen Fenway game against Northeastern University that was part of a Hockey East women’s-men’s doubleheader played at Fenway Park (home of the Boston Red Sox); it marked the first outdoor game in the history of NCAA women’s ice hockey. The fourth-ranked ‘Cats quickly fell behind 2-0 to the ninth-ranked Huskies, but answered the second goal just 18 seconds later on an ESPN Top 10 Play in which Sarah Cuthbert, without a stick, kicked the puck out of the right corner to goal scorer Shannon Sisk in the near circle. NU scored the only goal of the second period to take a 3-1 lead heading into the final frame. It was UNH, however, that dominated third-period play. The Wildcats recorded a 14-5 shot advantage and outscored the Huskies 4-0 to rally for a 5-3 victory on the snowy evening. Julie Allen ignited the comeback with a goal at 1:30 to lift the ‘Cats within 3-2. Micaela Long struck at 11:02 to level the score at 3, then Kristina Lavoie completed the comeback effort with a goal at 14:30. She netted an empty-net goal with 15 seconds remaining to secure the victory. It marked career win #50 for Kayley Herman, who entered the game at the start of the second period and stopped 12 of 13 shots she faced. In addition to the team accomplishments, there were a number of individual accolades bestowed the Wildcats. Senior forward and captain Kelly Paton received a lot of hardware. She was selected as a Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award Top 3 Finalist and to the RBK/ AHCA All-America First Team. Paton was also tabbed New England Player

of the Year and co-Player of the Year by Hockey East. Junior defenseman Courtney Birchard was named to the All-America Second Team and the Hockey East All-Star First Team; freshman forward Kristina Lavoie was voted Hockey East Rookie of the Year. New Hampshire opened the 2009-10 season with a six-game homestand. The Wildcats defeated Hockey East rival UConn, 3-1, to remain unbeaten (7-0-1) in season openers under coach McCloskey and then recorded 4-0 victories against both Quinnipiac and Colgate. It marked the 12th career shutout for junior goaltender Kayley Herman (vs. QU) and the second shutout for sophomore goalie Lindsey Minton. UNH’s non-conference slate continued with a 2-1 win vs. Syracuse in which Paton scored with 7.2 seconds remaining in the game, a 3-3 tie against Niagara and a 6-1 victory the next day vs. those Purple Eagles to conclude the six-game homestand undefeated at 5-0-1. The first road trip for the Wildcats was to northern New York for a weekend series against Clarkson and St. Lawrence. The Golden Knights handed UNH its first loss of the season, and the ‘Cats returned home following a 3-3 tie vs. SLU. New Hampshire then returned to league action with home games against UConn and Maine. The Wildcats defeated the Huskies yet again by a 3-1 margin and shut out the Black Bears in a 5-0 victory. Paton tallied four points while Raylen Dziengelewski and Micaela Long recorded three apiece vs. the Black Bears; Herman recorded 12 saves for her second shutout of the season. Up next on the schedule was a homeand-home against Boston University, which had won the season series vs. the ‘Cats in the 2009 season. UNH ensured that wouldn’t happen again with a 4-3 road win (highlighted by Paton’s 50th career goal) and 4-4 tie at home in which Birchard scored with 54 seconds left in regulation to send the game into OT.

A midweek road game against regional rival Harvard gave the ‘Cats little time to rest. Minton recorded a season-high 27 saves, including 10 in the third period and two in OT, and Long’s shorthanded tally lifted UNH into a 1-1 tie – the Wildcats’ fourth draw of the season. Paton almost single-handedly beat Rensselaer with three goals and an assist in the team’s 4-3 victory in which the ‘Cats overcame a 3-1 deficit. UNH closed out the month of November with a 2-1 road victory against #7 Northeastern in which Paton and Birchard scored shorthanded goals and Minton stopped 21 shots. The Wildcats entered December with an eight-game unbeaten streak (5-0-3) a 10-1-4 overall record and 4-0-1-1 mark in Hockey East. The ‘Cats were also unbeaten in 10 home games with an 8-0-2 record at the Whittemore Center. The beginning of the last month of the calendar year was a tough one for New Hampshire, which lost 4-1 at home to Providence; Long recorded her 100th career point in the game. It marked the team’s first home loss to a Hockey East team in the eighth year of the league; it also ended UNH’s overall league unbeaten streak (16-0-1) and the Wildcats’ regular-season home unbeaten streak (28-0-6). The ‘Cats responded immediately, however, with a dominant 4-0 win at Boston College just three days later in a game that marked coach McCloskey’s 200th career victory. UNH then closed the 2009 calendar year – and the non-conference portion of its schedule – with a mid-December 4-1 win against another regional rival in Dartmouth. New Hampshire was then idle until the Frozen Fenway matchup against Northeastern on Jan. 8. One week later, the ‘Cats battled Providence in a home-and-home series, and the Friars became the first Hockey East team to sweep a season series vs.

2010-11 UNH WOMEN’S HOCKEY

wildcat HOCKEY It took just three minutes, however, for the ‘Cats to score the equalizer off the stick of Long (set up by Lavoie and Katie Brock). The score remained tied, 1-1, through two periods of play. UMD netted a power-play goal at 3:57 of the third period. UNH generated offensive pressure with seven minutes left on the clock that led to a power-play opportunity. The Wildcats were able to sustain considerable pressure and record two shots, but could not erase the one-goal deficit. New Hampshire lifted Herman, who recorded eight saves each period, in favor of an extra skater with 1:24 remaining. The ‘Cats were able to keep the puck in the offensive zone, but UMD was effective at keeping the puck on the perimeter and did not allow a shot in the last 70 seconds. The end of the 2010 season marked the end of UNH careers for four seniors: Long, Paton, Sisk and Kelly Cahill.

Season Review

UNH with back-to-back 3-2 victories. The Wildcats then battled a nationally-ranked team for the fourth consecutive game; the foe was once again NU. This time the ‘Cats rallied for a 2-2 tie on a third-period goal by Julie Allen. UNH closed January with a two-game series at Maine. The Blue and White won the opener, 5-2, led by Brittany Skudder’s three-point performance, and took the second game by a 3-1 margin as Lavoie extended her goal-scoring streak to eight games and Long tallied a point in her 17th straight game. Back-to-back losses at Vermont (2-1) and home against Boston U. (5-2 despite recording a 35-9 shot advantage) marked an auspicious start to the month of February. Paton did record her 150th career point in that loss to the Terriers. The ‘Cats responded positively, however, with a 4-1 road win against eighth-ranked UConn on Super Bowl Sunday. The victory was costly, however, as Birchard incurred a seasonending injury. That injury left the Wildcats shuffling the roster with freshman forward Kristine Horn shifting to the blue line in an effort to capture the offensive dynamic Birchard brings to the defensive unit. One weekend later, UNH swept the two-game battle of the ‘Cats by outscoring UVM by an aggregate score of 8-2. That weekend’s highlights included a personal-best four assists for Long in one game and a 24-save shutout for Minton in the other. New Hampshire then closed out the regular season with a home-and-home series against Boston College. The Eagles spoiled UNH’s Senior Day with a 2-1 win at the Whittemore Center, but the Wildcats returned the favor one day later with a 4-1 victory at Conte Forum in which Paton recorded four points, including her 100th career assist. UNH ended the regular season tied for second in the Hockey East standings and won the tiebreaker to claim the #2 seed. That gave the Wildcats a first-round bye directly into the semifinals, which were held March 6 at Providence College. BU upended crosstown rival BC to set up a matchup vs. New Hampshire and the Terriers ended the Wildcats’ fouryear reign as Hockey East tournament champions with a 4-0 victory. The Wildcats, who had been ranked in the top 5 of the national polls the entire season, then had to wait 30 hours for the NCAA selection show to await their fate – in or out of the eight-team field with an at-large bid. New Hampshire did in fact receive its first NCAA at-large bid with a quarterfinal matchup at Minnesota-Duluth (the Bulldogs defeated UNH in the 2008 NCAA quarterfinals at the Whittemore Center). Herman, despite not seeing game action since Feb. 6, got the starting nod in goal. It was a rough start for the junior goaltender as UMD took a 1-0 lead at 2:42 of the first period.

The grants were provided to establish colleges to serve the sons and daughters of farming and

laboring families. First situated in Hanover, N.H., in connection with Dartmouth College, UNH College moved to Durham in 1893 after Benjamin Thompson, a prosperous farmer, bequeathed land and money to further the development of the college. In 1923, the state legislature granted it a new charter as the University of New Hampshire.

Experiencing tremendous growth, the University now enrolls nearly 15,000 students from nearly all 50 states and 58 countries in undergraduate and graduate programs. At the heart of the University’s undergraduate studies is the General Education Program, a core program with a breadth of academic subjects. The GEP aims to acquaint the student with some of the major modes of thought necessary to understand oneself, others, society and the world. Campus In recent years, several athletic facilities have received major upgrades and overhauls, including the Lundholm Gymnasium basketball and volleyball court. The University also completed a new outdoor track & field facility in 2001 and completely renovated the indoor track in 2009. Other additions have been two $1.5 million outdoor artificial fields, Memorial Field and Bremner Field, as well as the Jerry Azumah Performance Center located in the UNH Field House. The strength and conditioning facility was dedicated on July 8, 2003 and doubled in size in the summer of 2009.

Whittemore Center

wildcat HOCKEY While the University of New Hampshire Wildcat hockey teams endured a long season on the road in 1994-95, the sacrifice was worth it. The future of Wildcat hockey is the brightest it has ever been. In September 1994, the University System of New Hampshire trustees voted in favor of construction of a $26.5 million arena and recreation complex, and in just over one year, the project reached fruition. The Whittemore Center opened November 10, 1995 with the Wildcat men’s team upsetting defending national champion Boston University, 6-5 in overtime. The arena brings the University’s athletic facilities to a state-of-the-art level and positions UNH as a leader among the region’s colleges and universities. In addition to the athletic arena created by the project, Snively Arena, the former hockey rink, was converted into a recreational sports facility. Coupled with the Memorial Union building and Dimond Library renovations, the project has transformed the quality of student life on the UNH campus. A variety of reasons created the demand for such a facility on the Durham campus: the growing value placed on health

and fitness; activities; existing space deficiencies; the inadequacy of Snively Arena as a hockey facility and the need for a quality campus events center. The three-floor recreation facility eliminated the space deficiency and gave the entire student population ample health and fitness opportunities. The 6,501-seat hockey arena known as Towse Rink was designed for easy conversion to a 7,500-seat facility for revenue-producing concerts, exhibitions and other events. With its seating capacity of 6,501, the Whittemore Center nearly doubled the size of Snively Arena. The hockey rink became the sixth in the nation to feature an Olympic-sized ice surface (200’x100’) instead of the standard 200’x85’ (Snively’s dimensions).

Towse Rink

• 6,501-seat capacity for hockey and up to 7,200 for concerts and similar events. A total of 4,300 of the seats feature backs with arm rests on each side. The remaining seats have molded bottoms. • A bowl configuration. Fans enter at a concourse level and move down to their seats. • An Olympic-size ice surface (200’x100’) for hockey. • Four concession areas (each 250 sq. feet) and six rest room facilities (two 1,125 sq. feet; four 850 sq. feet). • A main lobby (3,800 sq. feet) and a public skating lobby (850 sq. feet). • A pro shop (200 sq. feet) and ticket office (200 sq. feet). • Men’s and women’s hockey coaches’ offices (175 sq. feet). • Men’s and women’s hockey locker rooms (1,200 sq. feet). • Training room (450 sq. feet), weight room (600 sq. feet) and meeting room (800 sq. feet). • Center-hung scoreboard and end-rink messageboard.

This cardio room, located across the hallway from the women’s ice hockey locker room on the ice level of the Whittemore Center, is utilized by the team throughout the season.

Hamel Recreation Sports Center

• Three floors. • A gymnasium (22,800 sq. feet) with three standard-sized basketball courts. • Two multipurpose athletic courts (5,575 sq. feet). • Free-weight room (3,025 sq. feet). • Fitness room (3,750 sq. feet). • Four racquetball courts (800 sq. feet each). • Jogging track (4,975 sq. feet). • Men’s and women’s locker rooms (1,350 sq. feet).

The Women’s Hockey East Association proudly enters its ninth season of play after officially commencing league action in the fall of 2002. In eight short years, the conference has emerged as one of the top women’s ice hockey conferences in the nation, having sent three teams to the Frozen Four and nine teams to the NCAA Tournament in the league’s eight-year existence, including most recently New Hampshire’s Frozen Four appearance in 2008. In 2010, the Boston University Terriers earned the first their WHEA Tournament championship in school history with a 2-1 overtime win against Connecticut. Providence College hosted the eighth annual tournament championship at Schneider Arena as the top seed in the tournament, after claiming its third regular-season championship in school history. UNH’s Kelly Paton and Northeastern’s Florence Schelling were named Co-Player of the Year in the conference, while Wildcat forward Kristina Lavoie was tabbed at Rookie of the Year. Providence College’s Bob Deraney earned WHEA Coach of the Year honors for the first time in his Friars’ coaching career. Northeastern’s Katy Applin, BU’s Jennifer Arms, UNH’s Katie Brock and Chelsea Furlani from Vermont all earned 4.0 GPA’s on the year to earn Hockey East Top-Scholar Athlete honors headlining the list of a leaguerecord 71 student-athletes named to the WHEA All-Academic Team in 2009-2010. Applin and Arms received the distinction for second consecutive season. Fenway Park hosted the first outdoor women’s game in NCAA history on Friday, January 8, 2010. New Hampshire earned a 5-3 come from behind victory in the game vs. Northeastern. In February 2007, the league debuted its inaugural “Skating Strides Against Breast Cancer.” The one-day event was hosted by Hockey East schools as a way to establish a greater fan base, to raise needed funds, and to work with the specific charities to raise awareness for both the league and the specific cause. In the initial year, close to $20,000 was donated back to local breast cancer charities (Friends of Mel’s Foundation and the American Cancer Society), vastly exceeding expectations. Last year, over $23,000 dollars was raised to bring the four-year total to over $114,000. “Skating Strides” has won two national awards at NACMA in the “Single Day Attendance Promotion” category in 2007 and 2009. The fourth annual “Skating Strides Against Breast Cancer” will have an event on every WHEA campus this season, as well as participation by all of the Hockey East men’s teams. History As women’s ice hockey steadily expanded from its original status as an emerging

sport to its current status as an established NCAA championship sport, it became apparent that Hockey East should seriously consider sponsoring a separate league to accommodate its five member schools that initially had varsity programs for women: Boston College, Maine, New Hampshire, Northeastern and Providence. The uncertainty remained until a split in the Eastern College Athletic Conference grouped the five aforementioned programs into a separate league, the ECAC Women’s Eastern League, along with three other unaffiliated programs. Seeking league solidarity, administrators from the five Hockey East institutions acted. In September of 2001, the long-incubated idea became a reality when the athletic directors voted to found the new women’s league under the existing Hockey East banner, with play scheduled to begin no later than the 2004-05 season. The five schools with varsity programs entered as charter members with the stipulation that any other Hockey East school that added a varsity women’s program in the future would be freely admitted to the league. Expediting the process in the interests of the participating teams, the league and the sport itself, Commissioner Joe Bertagna worked with a selected task force to successfully prepare the Hockey East women’s league for launch in the 2002-03 season, two years ahead of schedule. An important part of that process was the acceptance of an invitation extended to the University of Connecticut to join the newly formed league as its sixth active member. The triumphant effort immediately afforded the participating administrators a stronger voice in the advancement of their women’s ice hockey programs and alleviated the ECAC of continuing the maintenance of the Women’s Eastern League. Players, fans, coaches and administrators alike were all anticipating the intensified competition created by the new circle of teams that were already familiar rivals. In 2005, the Women’s Hockey East Association welcomed the addition of two more teams to its growing family, Boston University and the University of Vermont. For BU, it marked the inaugural season for women’s hockey as a varsity sport. Although the Women’s Hockey East Association is still in its infancy, its member programs have storied histories that include several championships and individual awards at the highest levels of play. The first 14 ECAC championships were shared among New Hampshire, Northeastern and Providence, all charter members of Hockey East. Northeastern forward Brooke Whitney was named the recipient of the 2002 Patty Kazmaier Award as the nation’s top female collegiate player, an honor first won by New Hampshire’s Brandy Fisher in 1998. Had the award been in existence beforehand, it surely would have been won at some point by Cammi Granato, a three-time ECAC Player of the Year who led Providence to back-to-back championships in 1992 and 1993. Five years later, in 1998,

alongside nine other alums of what are now Hockey East programs, Granato captained Team USA to the Olympic gold medal during the first Olympic tournament that featured women’s ice hockey as a medal sport. Granato will be inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame in October for her contributions to the sport. Beginning in 2009, the WHEA athletic directors voted to honor the league Player of the Year with the Cammi Granato Award. Perhaps the proudest legacy that the Women’s Hockey East Association has established is the Hockey Humanitarian Award. The most prestigious off-ice honor, and arguably the highest overall honor in the sport, the Hockey Humanitarian Award recognizes college hockey’s finest citizen each year and encompasses both male and female athletes in all divisions. Its winners have demonstrated outstanding contributions to society through leadership in charity work and volunteerism. Northeastern senior forward Missy Elumba was the 2009 recipient as the fifth Hockey East student-athlete to receive the prestigious honor. Elumba was the 14th all-time recipient and joined former Husky goaltender Chanda Gunn, who received the award in 2004, as the second athlete in Northeastern women’s hockey history. BC’s Sarah Carlson received it in 2005, making Women’s Hockey East the first league to boast back-to-back winners.

Marty Scarano

Director of Athletics

Marty Scarano is in the midst of his 11th year as Director of Athletics at the University of New Hampshire. During his tenure, Scarano has heightened national exposure for UNH athletics with academics, facility renovations and programmatic advancement being top priorities. According to numbers released in 2010, UNH athletics ranks highest in the America East Conference, the Colonial Athletic Association and second nationally among all public institutions, trailing only the U.S. Naval Academy, for the Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of its student athletes with a mark of 97 percent. Of its 20 current sport teams, 14 of them submitted perfect GSRs of 100 percent. UNH finished second in the America East Academic Cup this past season, achieving a 3.16 cumulative grade-point average, which surpassed the league record for highest GPA. There have been over $8.5 million in capitol improvements since his hiring in the summer of 2000. In the fall of 2008, the Paul Sweet Oval renovation was completed to include new surfaces, lighting, painting, infrastructure upgrades and the replacement of windows that existed in the original architecture. The total cost of the project exceeded $500,000. In the summer of 2007, the Cowell Stadium grass field was replaced with a $1 million Field Turf synthetic surface. Additionally in 2007, a complete renovation of Lundholm Gymnasium was undertaken. The $600,000 renovation included a new state-of-the-art bleacher system, new scoreboards, competition baskets and other aesthetic enhancements. Scarano brought about the completion of the $2.15 million Reggie Atkins Track and Field Facility in the summer of 2000. The addition of a center-ice scoreboard and message board at the Whittemore Center was completed in 2001. In 2002, UNH athletics renovated Memorial Field along with the Bigglestone Plaza and Bremner Field on the former Upper Field. The two fields, which feature state-of-the-art synthetic turf and lighting, were built at a cost of $1.5 million apiece. In addition, construction was completed to enlarge and improve the women’s locker rooms in the UNH Field House. Two other major improvements to benefit UNH’s student-athletes have been the renovation of the Jerry Azumah Performance Center for Strength and Conditioning, which features state-of-the-art strength and conditioning equipment, new offices and design, and a complete overhaul of the Student-Athlete Academic Center. Scarano and the University are also in the midst of the planning and fundraising for a multi-purpose outdoor facility. Scarano has focused on moving UNH athletics into the collegiate national arena. To accomplish that goal, UNH has taken on the task of hosting major NCAA championships. The Wildcat athletic department was host of highly-successful NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Northeast Regionals at the Verizon Wireless Arena (Manchester, N.H.) in 2004, 2007, 2009, and Manchester will once again be the site of the Northeast Regionals in 2011. UNH has had the opportunity to host two NCAA Women’s Ice Hockey Frozen Fours in the Whittemore Center in 2002 and 2005. In addition, UNH successfully hosted the 2007 NCAA Skiing Championships in Washington Valley, as well as the 2005 NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Northeast Regional, which took place at the Whittemore Center. This past season, men’s and women’s ice hockey, football, the men’s and women’s ski teams and gymnastics, as well as members of men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, all competed in the NCAA postseason. Because of these initiatives and accomplishments, UNH athletics has consistently been ranked in the top 90 programs among all Division I institutions in the battle for the NACDA Directors Cup, which is well ahead of nearly all of UNH’s conference opponents. This past season, the Wildcats ranked 72nd out of more than 370 Division I schools with 260.50 points, which were the most in program history, the best in America East and placed the ‘Cats in the top five among FCS teams. UNH ranked behind only Villanova, Princeton, Cornell and Harvard in the FCS subdivision. In New England, the Wildcats finished fourth behind Boston College, Connecticut and Harvard. Scarano’s many accomplishments during his tenure have played a key role in UNH being named one of the Top 20 Athletic Departments in the Country in U.S. News and World Report college athletics rankings in March 2002. UNH’s graduation rate for athletes has maintained levels at or exceeding 90 percent, which puts it among the nation’s best in Div. I. The men’s ice hockey team won the regular season Hockey East title in 2002, 2003, 2007, 2008 and 2010, and then advanced to the NCAA Frozen Four in 2002 and 2003. The Wildcat women’s hockey team won the Hockey East Tournament Championship four straight seasons from 2006-09, which also included Frozen Four appearances in 2006 and 2008. The women’s gymnastics team won its first-ever EAGL title in 2003, when the event was hosted at the Whitt. The volleyball team won an America East crown in 2002 and 2003 and went on to the NCAA tournament in those same seasons. The field hockey team made the NCAA’s in 2000, while women’s lacrosse made “The Big Dance” in 2004 and again in 2008. UNH football returned to national prominence and was ranked No. 1 in the nation for parts of three seasons from 2005-07, made it to the NCAA FCS playoffs the last six years, including the quarterfinals five times in that span, and also won its fifth consecutive game against an FBS opponent in 2009. Additionally, 21 coaches have won 58 Coach of the Year awards during Scarano’s tenure. In 2007, Scarano was named the All-American Football Foundation Athletic Director of the Year for FCS football in the Northeast region. Scarano was also awarded the National Association of College Directors of Athletics (NACDA) AD of the Year for the FCS. Scarano also been an active member in the leadership of UNH’s three major conferences and was the chair of the executive committees for Atlantic 10 football, Hockey East and America East from 2003 to 2007. He also served as chair of the NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Committee in 2005-06 and 2006-07. Scarano held the position of Athletics Director at Colorado College from July 1996 through June 2000. The college’s athletic program excelled both in and out of the classroom under his supervision and six different athletic facilities received renovations, including the Schlessman Pool, Washburn Field, the Carle Weight Room and a new press box at Stewart Field. During his tenure, Colorado College was ranked among the top 20 Division III programs in the Sears Cup national standings and produced several All-Americans, all-academic award winners and NCAA post-graduate scholarship recipients. During Scarano’s tenure at Colorado College, the men’s ice hockey team became a regular at the NCAA men’s ice hockey championships. Prior to his stay in Colorado Springs, Scarano worked for 13 years at Colgate University, where he served as assistant director of athletics, director of physical education, associate director, and senior associate director. Scarano, a native of Pittsburgh, Pa., is a 1978 graduate of Penn State University, where he started his athletic career as assistant ticket manager and the athletics events manager from 1980-83. Scarano holds a Master’s Degree in Environmental History from Colgate. He and his wife, Cydney, have two daughters, Lynden, a junior at UNH, and Corey, and a son, Kyle.

Patty Kazmaier Award

wildcat HOCKEY The Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award, an honor established by USA Hockey, is bestowed annually to the most outstanding collegiate women’s ice hockey player. The Award was created in conjunction with the American Women’s College Hockey Alliance national championship, which originated in 1998. Each year, a committee nominates 10 candidates and a separate committee selects three finalists from that pool of candidates. That committee then decides which finalist will receive the honor as most outstanding collegiate player in the nation. UNH was the only women’s ice hockey program to have a candidate in each of the first five years the award was presented. The 2003 season marked the first time that a Wildcat was not in consideration as a candidate. In the initial three years (1998-2000), a University of New Hampshire player was selected among the finalists. In 1998, Brandy Fisher led the nation in scoring, the ‘Cats to a national championship and was honored as the inaugural recipient of the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award.

Karyn Bye

Allison edgar

Brandy Fisher

Karyn Bye is one of the most prolific scorers in UNH history. She is the only player to lead the Wildcats in goals four times and is one of two ‘Cats to lead the team in points four times. Bye, a captain in 1992 and co-captain in 1993, is a two-time ECAC champion who left the program ranked fourth in points and is currently eighth in that statistic with 164 (100g, 64a). Bye’s outstanding playing career continued with USA Hockey from 1992 to 2002. She competed in 15 international tournaments in that decade, including when she served as assistant captain for the goldmedal winning 1998 Olympic Team. Bye was the team’s leading scorer four times, including in that 1998 Olympiad. She was also part of the 2002 Olympic Team that won a silver medal.

Allison Edgar was a linchpin of UNH’s defensive unit for four years. In 137 career games, she compiled 95 points on 39 goals and 56 assists to rank No. 6 on the program’s list of defenseman scoring leaders in points as well as third in goals. Edgar earned Hockey East First Team All-Star accolades as a senior, when she ranked 12th nationally in defensemen scoring at 0.71 points per game. She also was a two-time Second Team selection. The native of Brigden, Ontario epitomized the term student-athlete, as she earned the team’s Award for Academic Excellence all four years and was named Hockey East Top Scholar-Athlete in 2003 and 2004. Edgar skated at the Hockey Canada Under-22 Development Camp in 2002 before returning to Durham for her junior season.

“The University of New Hampshire felt like the perfect place for me when I began my college career. Years after graduation, UNH still feels like the perfect place. During my four years at UNH, I met many people that had a tremendously positive impact on my life and hockey career. “Whether they were teammates, coaches, trainers, friends or even competitors, the sense of ‘family’ at UNH helped me to succeed and eventually move to the next level. No matter where I traveled or played, the spirit and support of UNH was always with me, helping to make my dreams come true.”

“UNH was all around the perfect fit for me -- from the time of my recruiting visit all the way through senior year. My hockey experience was exceptional and I was lucky to play under excellent coaches, as well as play my favorite game with teammates who ultimately became, and still are, some of my closest friends. “Academically, I was supported by each and every person at UNH, from professors to peers to coaches. This support led to success both in the classroom and on the ice. I am very honoured and grateful to be able to say I am a WILDCAT, and fully believe that there are few institutions that could have given me such an enriching student-athlete experience.”

Brandy Fisher became a part of women’s hockey history as the inaugural recipient of the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award (most outstanding women’s collegiate hockey player) in 1998. Fisher captained the ‘98 Wildcats to the national championship. She recorded a still-standing school-record 81 points that year, and her 42 goals from that year also remains as the single-season benchmark. Fisher, who scored the game-winning goal in the fifth overtime of the 1996 ECAC championship game vs. Providence to end the longest collegiate hockey game, also holds the UNH career goals record (129) and is one of three ‘Cats to surpass 200 career points with 240. She went on to play for USA Hockey from 1998-2002. Fisher competed in five international tournaments and was a member of the 2001-02 Pre-Olympic Tour Team.

“My experiences as a Wildcat were far greater than I could have ever imagined. From the amazing women’s hockey tradition to the teammates and friends that I made, I will always cherish the memories. I tell people that I had the perfect college experience… great teammates, great coaches, and a great education. “UNH also helped me take my hockey to the next level. I dreamed of playing for the U.S. team and because of the coaching, the support and the training facilities, I was able to make it to the national level. If I could do it all over again I would not change anything.”

Sue Merz

Kristen Thomas

Carisa Zaban

Sue Merz was one of four Wildcats to skate on the U.S. Women’s Ice Hockey National Team that won the gold medal at the 1998 Olympics. She also skated for the 2002 silver medal U.S. team and her time with the national team spanned from 1990-2002. Merz is a member of UNH’s Century Club with 107 career points. In 79 career games, she compiled 53 goals and 54 assists. Merz was the team leader in assists in both her sophomore and junior seasons. A native of Greenwich, Conn, Merz helped lead the ‘Cats to the ECAC tournament title in 1991 and to a runner-up finish in both 1992 and 1993.

Kristen Thomas, who captained the Wildcats in her junior and senior years, is one of the most prolific scoring defensemen in UNH history. In fact, she ranks first in assists (83) and is tied atop the points leaderboard with 108. The 83 assists is tied for 10th on the program’s overall leaderboard. Thomas, renowned for a hard slapshot, helped lead the ‘Cats to a Hockey East regular-season title in 2004 as well as tournament runner-up finishes in 2003 and 2004. As a senior in ‘04, Thomas ranked third nationally in defensemen scoring (0.86 points per game) and 13th overall in assists. She tied for the team lead in assists as a junior. Thomas’ collegiate accolades included Hockey East First Team All-Star in both 2003 and 2004 as well as New England All-Star Team. Thomas was a member of the USA Women’s National Under-22 Team in ‘02 and ‘03.

Carisa Zaban is one of the most gifted student-athletes to don a UNH hockey jersey. And the proof is in the record book, where her name is at the top of the career lists for both assists (145) and points (263). She is second in career goals with 118. Zaban is one of only two Wildcats to lead the team in points all four seasons. She also led the team in assists every year, and that’s a feat only she can boast. The native of Glenview, Ill. claims three of the top seven single-season assist marks and three of the top eight single-season point totals. Zaban garnered All-America honors in 2000 and was named a top three finalist for the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award that season. She was one of the 10 nominees for the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award in 1999. Zaban competed on the U.S. National Team in 2001 and 2002.

Class of ‘94

“One often doesn’t fully realize the impact a school has on the development of a person until later on in life. I am no exception. UNH not only gave me a great education, it also gave me a supportive community of friends and teammates with whom I grew and developed as a hockey player and a person. “UNH allowed me to hone my athletic skills, springboarding me to the next level in my hockey career. Without the guidance and leadership of the people on and off the ice at UNH, I would not have been able to realize a lifelong goal of becoming an Olympian.”

Class of ‘04

“My experience at UNH was an absolute dream come true. People often ask what made me decide to make the move to Durham. It was a question anyone could answer themself with a laundry list of the program’s accolades, but truly it was just my gut telling me it was a perfect fit. Of course the ability to get a home cooked meal – and do a little laundry without heckling anyone for quarters – was a bonus. Looking back, my favorite memories as a player were when we were on the road, because I felt like I was going on vacation each and every time. It was filled with hockey, endless card games and, of course, chicken parmigiana. It took me at least a half-hour to pack my bag for a simple one-night trip as I was so excited. I miss those days, but will hold close to me the memories I have.”

Class of ‘00

“I had the best five years at UNH. (Zaban had a medical redshirt season in 1998.) The friends I made were not only teammates but sisters during and after college. It would be really hard to come back to the school and watch a game because every time I step into the Whitt, I want to get back on the ice. “I’m thrilled that the UNH program is back on top where it belongs and is continuing the tradition of going to the finals and winning league titles. If I could do it all over again, trust me, I would!”
