the University

The University of UNH is a public land-, sea-, and space grant university serving an undergraduate population of 14,492 undergraduate and graduate students. A rising star among research universities, UNH retains the look and feel of a New England liberal arts college with a faculty dedicated to teaching. Athletic Department Mission UNH student-athletes participate in 20 men’s and women’s varsity sports and can be found among all seven schools and colleges of the University, including over 2,000 courses in more than 100 majors.

The intercollegiate athletic program also has an important role in enriching the quality of life for the University and statewide community, and as a source of pride and encouragement for support of the University, while maintaining high standards of academic excellence. (See statement below). History One of the most prestigious institutions in the Northeast, the University of UNH has long been recognized as a leader in education and research. Founded in 1866 as the UNH College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts, UNH was among the early state institutions of higher education whose formation was made possible by federal government land grants. 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.

AMERICA EAST

Now in its fourth decade of operation, America East has evolved into one of the most comprehensive NCAA Division I conferences with a commitment to broad-based, competitive athletics programs, complementing the academic integrity and missions of the member institutions. With a geographic footprint covering the Mid-Atlantic to Northeast regions of the United States, America East strives to develop champions in academics, athletics and leadership at its nine member institutions: Albany, Binghamton, Boston University, Hartford, Maine, UMBC, New Hampshire, Stony Brook and Vermont. Progressive in its approach to its more than 3,400 studentathletes, America East recognizes champions in each of its 20 sports, including field hockey. America East also conducts the nation’s most comprehensive academic recognition program for studentathletes. America East’s student-athletes set a new league record with a combined 3.07 grade-point average in 2010-11. More than half of the conference’s student-athletes were named to the Academic Honor Roll for maintaining GPAs of 3.0 or better. Three schools, including UNH, ranked among the nation’s best in Graduation Success Rate (GSR) with scores of 94 or better. Nearly one-third of all America East teams had perfect GSR scores. Thirty programs from America East schools received Academic Progress Rate (APR) public recognition awards from the NCAA for finishing among the top 10 percent in the nation. Every America East school won a conference championship or regular-season title for the first time since 2005-06. America East finished fourth in the field hockey RPI behind only the ACC, Big 10 and Big East and had two teams ranked in the final NFHCA Top 20. For the second straight year, America East partnered with Newman’s Own Foundation to encourage community service among students through the NOF Campus Community Challenge. In total, more than $100,000 was given to America East student groups engaged in philanthropy and community service. Five America East institutions are ranked among the top 105 national universities according to the U.S News and World Report America’s Best College Guide.

Sr. Associate Athletic Director Senior Woman Administrator

Dr. Mark Huddleston became the 19th president of the University of New Hampshire in July 2007, bringing three decades of experience in public and private education as a faculty member, dean, and senior administrator. Huddleston has been a strong advocate for increasing affordability and accessibility in higher education, and has argued that we need to rethink much of what we do to protect our core missions, and to ensure that higher education remains vital and financially sustainable in the 21st century. In February 2010, he presented a 10-year strategic plan for UNH, the result of an intensive collaboration between faculty, students, staff, alumni, and the University’s wider communities. Emphasizing innovation and entrepreneurship, the plan is helping to guide the University’s response to a historic state budget cut passed by the 2011 New Hampshire Legislature. “The strategic plan commits us to finding new ways to teach, learn, discover, create, and engage in the 21st century—and positions UNH to become a national leader in the redefinition of American higher education,” Huddleston says. Huddleston was raised in Syracuse, N.Y., and was the first member of his family ever to attend college. He earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from the State University of New York-Buffalo, and both a master’s degree and Ph.D. in political science from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He began his academic career at SUNY-Buffalo in 1977 as an assistant professor of political science. In 1980, he joined the faculty of the University of Delaware, where he served for the next 24 years. There, he chaired the Department of Political Science and International Relations and served as associate provost for international programs. In 2001, he was named dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, overseeing 45 academic departments and centers with nearly 900 full-time faculty and staff, and serving in that capacity until he was named president of Ohio Wesleyan University in 2004. An author of numerous books and articles, he has been a consultant for both the U.S. government and international organizations. He also served as an adviser in Bosnia on rebuilding financial and administrative infrastructures after the Dayton accords. Huddleston is chair of the Presidents Council of the America East Conference, an incorporator of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, and a member of the Board of Trustees of the Speedway Children’s Charities. Huddleston and his wife, Emma Bricker, have three children, Andy, Kate, and Giles.

Administration

The 2011-12 academic year represents the 12th season Marty Scarano has served as the 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. With a Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 95 percent among its student-athletes in 2010-11, UNH ranked highest in the America East Conference, the Colonial Athletic Association and second nationally among all public institutions. The field hockey, women’s gymnastics, men’s soccer, women’s ice hockey, women’s skiing, women’s track & field and women’s volleyball teams all posted perfect 100 percent GSRs while the football team notched a 95 percent mark, tied for fifth-best in the nation in its respective sport. Four Wildcat teams were honored by the NCAA for multiyear Academic Progress Rates (APRs) in the top 10 percent of all teams in their respective sports: football, men’s indoor track & field, men’s outdoor track & field and women’s gymnastics, with the football program compiling the best APR among all CAA institutions. UNH finished second in the America East Academic Cup for the third time in the last four years, achieving a 3.13 cumulative grade-point average. The Wildcats had the highest number of honorees on the 2010 America East Fall Academic Honor Roll and the second-highest percentage of student-athletes on the 2010-11 America East Winter/Spring Academic Honor Roll. During the 2010-11 campaign, men’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 & field, all competed in the NCAA postseason. Because of these initiatives and accomplishments, UNH athletics has consistently been ranked among the top of Division I institutions in the battle for the Learfield Sports NACDA Directors’ Cup. This past season, the Wildcats ranked 76th out of more than 370 Division I schools with 242.50 points, which was the best in America East. The Wildcats finished third behind only Connecticut (44) and Boston College (64) in the New England region. Scarano’s many accomplishments 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 Division I. Scarano has focused on moving UNH athletics into the collegiate national arena. To accomplish that goal, the University has taken on the task of hosting major NCAA championships. The Wildcat athletic department has played host to highly successful NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Northeast Regionals at the Verizon Wireless Arena (Manchester, N.H.) in 2004, 2007, 2009 and 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 at the Whittemore Center Arena. The men’s hockey team, which extended the second-longest active streak of consecutive NCAA tournament appearances to 10 during the ’10-11 campaign, has claimed five Hockey East regular-season titles and participated in back-to-back Frozen Fours (2002-03) during the Scarano era. UNH football has qualified for the NCAA FCS postseason for a nation-leading seven straight seasons and has advanced to the quarterfinals six times in that span. 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, and has reached the NCAA Regionals 10 times in Scarano’s 11 years at the helm. 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 qualified for the NCAAs in 2000, while women’s lacrosse made the NCAA tournament in 2004 and 2008. Additionally, 24 coaches have won 61 Coach of the Year awards during Scarano’s tenure. There have been over $9 million in capitol improvements since Scarano’s hiring in the summer of 2000. Most recently, as part of a $650,000 renovation project in the summer of 2011, the field turf at Bremner Field was replaced with a new state-of-the-art surface used by many varsity teams and for student recreational activities. 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. 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 and is currently on the America East Executive Council. Scarano held the position of Athletics Director at Colorado College from July 1996 through June 2000. 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. 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 three children, with daughter, Lynden, and son, Kyle, currently enrolled at UNH, while daughter, Corey, is a junior at Oyster River High School.

Academic Support Services Athletic excellence is one-half the formula for success in the collegiate experience for University of New Hampshire field hockey players. The primary measure of achievement is the student-athlete’s success in the classroom. For the 1998-99 and 1999-2000 academic years, UNH was awarded the America East Academic Cup for recording the highest GPA in the conference. In both the Fall 2004 and Winter/Spring 2005 semesters, UNH placed the highest number of student-athletes on the America East Honor Roll; the University accomplished the feat again in Fall ‘06 and Fall ‘09 and Fall ‘10. New Hampshire also boasts one of the top graduation rates in the country. UNH is dedicated to enhancing the student-athlete’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 field 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. Serving as Student-Athlete Support Coordinator is Assistant Athletic Director Joanne Maldari, a 1990 graduate of Holy Cross who went on to earn her master’s degree in Athletic Counseling at Springfield College. She was recognized for her outstanding efforts at UNH by receiving the University’s 2001 Academic Advising Award. Cathy Leach, Assistant Athletic Director for Academic Support and Compliance, is entering her eighth year as an assistant in the realm of academic support. Leach served as UNH’s Women’s Sports Information Director (1985-88) and as interim Athletic Director (1989-90 season) before working in admissions from 1990-2001. Sports Medicine The Sports Medicine Department at the University of New Hampshire consists of eight full- and part-time certified and licensed athletic trainers led by director Jon Dana, who has been at UNH since 1984. The department works out of two locations – the Field House and the Whittemore Center. Both athletic training rooms utilize currently available modalities, including muscle stimulators, ultrasound, heat, cryotherapy, and hydrotherapy. The Certified Athletic Trainer provides a myriad of services to the department and the student-athlete. These include, but are not limited to, initial injury assessment and management, emergency injury/illness management, referral to appropriate professionals, interface with associated physicians and others, rehabilitation, counseling, administrative duties, including insurance coordination, supervision of practices and games, development and implementation of emergency plans, as well as student athletic trainer supervision. The athletic training room is considered to be “a designated facility where comprehensive health care services are provided. Comprehensive health care services include practice and game preparation, injury/illness evaluation, first aid and emergency care, follow-up care, rehabilitation and related services.” (National Athletic Trainer’s Association Education Council). Barbara Hemphill enters her fourth year with the both the University and the field hockey team. In the 2011 season, she will be assisted by Dana Corey, Avery Ogden and Chris Tacelli. Strength & Conditioning Paul Chapman enters his 10th year as the director of strength and conditioning at the University of New Hampshire and John Ciani is entering his 10th year with the UNH athletic department. 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. Chapman and Ciani helped coordinate the building of the state-of-the-art Jerry Azumah Performance Center and both 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. The strength and conditioning staff designs distinct sport-specific training philosophy for each sport. In conjunction with the coaching staff, individualized training programs are developed based upon on the athlete’s initial evaluation, experience level and current athletic ability. Improvement is not based on the weight on the bar, but rather how injury resistant the student-athlete is and his/her athletic performance. These strength and conditioning programs utilize all facets of training, from conventional strength training and Olympic Weightlifting to simple conditioning and sport-specific metabolic runs that enhance the athlete’s abilities during competition. No single training style dominates the program; a combination of all training techniques is utilized for the total development of the student-athlete. Athletic Media & Public Relations The Athletic Media & Public Relations department at UNH consists of three sports information professionals, three assistants and work-study students. The Assistant Athletic Director for Athletic Media & Public Relations is Tom Wilkins (Assumption ‘01). He is assisted by Douglas Poole (UNH ‘93) and Mike Murphy (Syracuse ‘95), as well as Anthony DeAngelis (UNH ‘08), Eric Peterson (Quinnipiac ‘10) and Jared Fieldsend (Thomas College ‘10). Poole, who will serve as the field hockey liaison for the 14th time in 15 years, was employed as a sportswriter at two local newspapers prior to returning to his alma mater in the spring of 1997. The primary responsibility of the media relations department is to promote the 20 varsity sports at UNH. Included in this responsibility is the coordination of relations with media members, the promotion of student-athletes for academic and athletic awards (on the conference, regional and national levels), the production of media guides and programs, the maintenance of (team and individual) statistics and the content of the official UNH athletics website (www.unhwildcats.com) and related social media.

In 20 seasons at the helm of the University of New Hampshire field hockey program, Robin Balducci – a three-time America East Coach of the Year recipient (2010, 2000, 1998) and a Northeast Region Coach of the Year honoree (1998) – is the program’s all-time winningest head coach by guiding the Wildcats to 193 victories and 16 postseason appearances. She recorded her 100th career victory October 14, 2000 when the Blue and White defeated the University of Vermont at UNH’s Memorial Field. Balducci enters her 21st season with an overall record of 193204-4 that includes 73-56-2 in America East conference play. Under her tutelage, 13 Wildcats have received All-America honors and that includes First Team selections Stacy Fimple and Rebecca Provost in 1994 as well as Marcie Boyer in 2002. A UNH Wildcat was selected America East Offensive Player of the Year in ‘08 and ‘09. One year ago, the ‘Cats completed their first unbeaten league season (5-0 record) and won their first outright league title since 2000 (they shared the ‘02 crown). New Hampshire, ranked #19 in the nation – the Wildcats had not been ranked since the 2000 season, then lost in overtime of the conference championship game to fall one goal short of advancing to the NCAA tournament. UNH ended the 2010 season with a 14-7 record to tie the fourth-highest win total in program history. The ‘Cats tied for the highest number of representatives on both the America East All-Conference First Team and All-Rookie Team (three apiece). In 2009, the Wildcats broke the program record for points in a season (170) by tallying the second-highest single-season totals in both goals (60) and assists (50). UNH advanced to the America East tournament for the third consecutive year and ended ‘09 with a 12-7 overall record. The ‘Cats won a pair of games against nationallyranked teams in October as part of a four-game win streak. In 2008, the Wildcats boasted the highest-scoring offense in America East and finished as league runner-up in both the regular season standings and tournament. UNH had a league-high four representatives on the All-Rookie Team. The ‘Cats finished with nine wins for the second consecutive year and had four overtime losses (three to nationally-ranked teams). UNH won six of the initial nine games of the 2007 season and consecutive shutout victories against Davidson and Fairfield gave the ‘Cats a 9-8 record late in the season. UNH advanced to the America East tournament and was ousted in the semifinals. The Wildcats finished ‘05 with a 7-12 overall record and missed the league tourney by virtue of a tiebreaker.

In 2004, Balducci led the ‘Cats to their third consecutive appearance in the America East Championships. She guided the ‘03 team to second place in the league standings with a 5-1 mark and UNH finished with a 10-11 overall record to reach double digits in the win column for the sixth time in seven seasons. In 2002, UNH won a share of the America East regular-season title and finished with a 12-8 overall record. In ‘00, Balducci guided UNH to the America East regular-season title, a runner-up finish in the conference tourney and an NCAA Tournament appearance for the second time in a three-year span. In recognition of her team’s accomplishments, Balducci was named America East Coach of the Year. In 1999, Balducci led UNH to a 12-7 overall record that included a 7-1 mark in America East. The ‘Cats earned the No. 2 seed in the conference tournament but fell short in their quest to defend the league title. In 1998, she guided the Wildcats to the NCAA Tournament and they concluded the season with a 14-7 record, 6-2 America East mark and a conference championship. She was honored as NFHCA Division I Northeast Region Coach of the Year and America East Coach of the Year. In 1997, UNH reemerged on the national scene, ascended to No. 8 in the nation and capped a successful 11-10 campaign with a loss in the ECAC championship game. Balducci is also a prominent figure on the national field hockey scene. In 1995, she was selected as a member of the United States National Team coaching staff. In the summer of ‘96, Balducci travelled to Germany with the U.S. National Team to compete in the Champions Trophy and the team finished in sixth place. The year before that, Coach Balducci embarked on a tour of Holland with the U-21 National team. During the 1995 calendar year, she toured Australia with the U.S. National Team, travelled to Spain with the U-21 squad and was a member of the coaching staff at the Pan American Games in Argentina, where the U.S. won the silver medal. Balducci, a Milford, Mass. native, has been involved in United States Field Hockey Association developmental camps since 1985 and continues to work at both the ‘A’ and ‘B’ camp levels. In 1991, her first year at the helm of the Wildcats, Balducci led UNH to an 11-6-2 record, a semifinal North Atlantic Conference playoff berth and a final national ranking of No. 12. In 1992, she kept the Wildcats in the national picture by leading her team to the NAC final. The following season, Balducci led the ‘Cats to a national ranking of No. 19 when UNH posted a 12-6-2 record. In her fourth season, Balducci guided New Hampshire to its best record in five years with a 14-8 mark in ‘94. The team was ranked 14th in the country that year and advanced to the NAC championship game. Without a place to call home in 1995 – Memorial Field was unplayable because of the Whittemore Center construction – Balducci coached the ‘Cats to a 7-12 mark. Balducci, a 1985 graduate of UNH, was a three-sport standout for the Wildcats and served as captain for each team. As a four-year starter in both field hockey and ice hockey, as well as a three-year starter in lacrosse, Balducci led UNH to both regional and national prominence. She earned Regional All-America honors in both field hockey and lacrosse, and still ranks sixth on the ice hockey all-time point scoring list. In 1985, Balducci was the starting goalkeeper for the Wildcat lacrosse team that won the only NCAA championship in UNH athletics’ history. The entire national championship lacrosse team was inducted into the inaugural class of the UNH Department of Women’s Athletics Hall of Honor in 1994 and Balducci herself was inducted in 1998 in recognition of her individual accomplishments. As starting goalkeeper her senior year, Balducci led the Wildcat field hockey team to the first round of the NCAA Tournament. In 1984, she was selected to the U.S. National Field Hockey Squad. She still holds the UNH school record for career shutouts with 31. Before returning to her alma mater, Balducci served as an assistant coach at Northeastern University for three years. During that time, the field hockey team earned two NCAA tournament bids and was consistently ranked among the top teams in the country.

Assistant Coaches

Margaux Shute was a member of the UNH field hockey program as a student-athlete from 2003-07 and immediately joined the program as an assistant coach following graduation in May 2008. Shute, a three-year starting goalkeeper, received NFHCA Division I National All-Academic Squad recognition every year and was named to the 2007 America East All-Academic Team for excellence both on the field and in the classroom. Her goalkeeping experience was invaluable in the ‘08 season, when the Wildcats had two rookie goalies; and under Shute’s tutelage in 2009, Katherine Nagengast led the America East conference in shutouts. Then in 2010, Shute helped lead UNH to the America East regular-season crown as Nagengast recorded an impressive .786 save percentage in league play. Shute played 99.7% of the minutes during her last three seasons (4160:20 of a possible 4172:29), including all 1341:22 in ‘05, with 58 consecutive starts. Shute had an outstanding senior season in which she recorded personal bests in goals-againstaverage (2.03), save percentage (.735) and shutouts (five) to garner America East All-Conference Second Team accolades. She recorded consecutive shutouts against UMass, Pacific and Holy Cross as part of an overall shutout streak of 292 minutes, 45 seconds; UNH had not blanked three consecutive opponents since 1997. Shute also had back-to-back shutouts of Davidson and Fairfield. The native of Norridgewock, Maine ranked No. 5 in the nation in saves (150) and No. 8 in saves/game (8.33) as a junior in 2006; she recorded double-digit saves six times that year. Shute recorded her first career shutout in 2005 and finished with three during that sophomore campaign. She tallied double digits in saves four times in ‘05 and that included a personal best of 19 against Indiana University in the season opener. Ross Gorham was a four-year student manager with the UNH field hockey team as an undergraduate at the University and he graduated with a B.S. degree in Kinesiology: Sport Studies in May 2011. Gorham’s duties included technical assistant, videographer and practice player. The Wildcats advanced to the America East Championship tournament all four years he was with the program. As a player, Gorham competed at the U.S. Men’s National championships at both the junior and senior levels from 200709. He was selected to the Under-21 National Team in ‘07 and competed in two U-21 series vs. Canadian squads. Gorham’s coaching experience includes time with the Seacoast United club team since 2007. He coached the U-19 First Team indoor squad from 2008-10 and led them to a gold medal at the Festival. As the U-16 First Team indoor coach, Gorham led Seacoast United to a 12th-place finish at the 50-team national championship in 2008. In addition to working various camps, he was an assistant varsity coach at Gardiner (Maine) High School from 2005-07. Gorham, a native of Gardiner, Maine, has served as USA Field Hockey Futures Regional Director for Region 1 (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont) since 2009. Meg Shea returns to her alma mater as a volunteer assistant coach for the 2011 season. Shea, who graduated from UNH with a Sociology degree in May 2010, is one of the most prolific point producers in New Hampshire history. The native of Melrose, Mass. amassed 99 career points (42 goals, 15 assists) spanning the 2006-09 seasons to rank third on the program’s all-time points leaderboard as well as fourth in goals. Shea recorded 23 goals, nine assists and 55 points – those goal and point totals rank second on UNH’s list of single-season superlatives – as a senior captain in ‘09 to garner NFHCA All-America Third Team and NFHCA Northeast Region First Team accolades in addition to being America East Offensive Player of the Year and All-Conference First Team. She ranked sixth nationally in both goals per game and points per game, and first in America East in those stats as well as game-winning goals. Her other collegiate honors included NFHCA Northeast Region First Team (‘08), ECAC Second Team All-Star, All-Conference First Team (‘08), All-Conference Second Team (‘07) and All-Rookie Team (‘06). Shea began her collegiate coaching career last year at UMass Dartmouth. She helped lead the 2010 team to a 15-8 record, Little East Conference tournament championship and second consecutive NCAA Division III tourney appearance; the team also had two players receive All-Region recognition and a total of seven All-Conference Team honorees, including the Offensive Player of the Year. Her other coaching experience includes the Seacoast United club and National Futures Association NH Level One.

Season Outlook

OVERVIEW Champions. The University of New Hampshire field hockey team earned that distinction by capturing the 2010 America East regular-season championship with an unbeaten conference record; UNH also entered the national polls for the first time in 10 years, then fell one goal short of advancing to the NCAA tournament with an overtime loss in the America East championship game to finish the season with 14 wins – the team’s highest total since 2000. The Wildcats return 17 letterwinners, including 10 starters, in a quest to once again be called champions in 2011. Included in that corps is a six-member senior class whose honors include one All-America Team selection, six NFHCA All-Region Team selections and seven America East All-Conference Team awards. attack Whitney Frates and Hayley Rausch – both of UNH’s 30+ point scorers a year ago – return to the front line as seniors for the 2011 season to lead a potent offense that topped the America East conference in assists and ranked #17 nationally in that statistic. Frates garnered NFHCA All-America Second Team recognition last year, when she recorded 30 points on 11 goals and eight assists and a team-high .297 shooting percentage; the 11 goals tied for tops on the team. She tallied a point in 11 of 21 games and factored in all three goals in UNH’s America East semifinal win vs. Maine. Frates, whose other accolades include NFHCA All-Region Team, America East All-Conference Team and America East All-Championship Team, enters the 2011 season ranked third on the program’s career assist list (24); she is eighth on the career points leaderboard (with 82) and 11th in goals (29). Rausch is coming off a year in which she led the team in both assists (13) and points (31) en route to being selected to the NFHCA Northeast Region Second Team. She led a triumvirate of ‘Cats that ranked 1-2-3 in America East in assists per game and she ranked #16 nationally in that statistic; Rausch’s 13 assists marked the highest total by a Wildcat since 1998 and is fifth on UNH’s list of single-season superlatives. And she rose to the occasion against the top competition with 11 points (3g, 5a) in six games vs. nationally-ranked teams. In three years, Rausch has compiled 24 assists and 74 points to rank third on the program’s assist leaderboard as well as 12th in points. New Hampshire natives Tori Welch and Hannah Richard were both impact players as freshmen in ‘10 and will continue to grow as part of the attack this season. Welch, a 2010 America East All-Rookie Team honoree, played in 20 of 21 games, was in the starting lineup 15 times and totaled nine points on three goals and three assists. Richard, who played in all 21 games with six starts (including both postseason games), recorded her only points of the season with a goal in the America East championship game. Mary Quill, another Granite State native who is now a junior, will look to increase her role. She played in 12 of 21 games – all off the bench, including all five America East conference games – a year ago after appearing in three games as a freshman in 2009. Mackenzie Joyce saw action in one game last season as a freshman and will also vie for more playing time. Midfield There are no seniors patrolling the midfield, but experience and talent are bountiful – it begins with juniors Emma Erler and Melyssa Woods and extends to sophomore Casey Pohlmeyer. Woods brings two years of starting experience to the midfield and has America East All-Rookie Team (2009) on her resume. Erler, a 2010 America East All-Academic Team selection for her excellence in athletics and academics, stepped into a starting role last year and recorded six points on two goals and two assists. Half that production (1g, 1a) came in the regular-season finale against Albany to help lift UNH to the America East regular-season title. Pohlmeyer started all 21 games and her contributions on the field were noted by the league coaches, who voted her to the All-Rookie Team. She played on both the offensive and defensive penalty corner units and contributed to the attack with six points (on three goals). Claire Grogan, who redshirted the 2009 season after joining the Wildcats as a walk-on, played in seven games – all off the bench – as a freshman in the 2010 season. Redshirt freshman Meg Williamson will also look to have a bigger impact in 2011 following a strong spring season. Kellie Joyce is reunited at UNH with older sister Mackenzie as well as former Kimball Union Academy teammates Frates and Kyle Lyons. Kellie, who has a number of years experience at the National Futures and National Indoor Futures championships, garnered Regional All-America honors at KUA. BACKS The defensive unit returns intact from last year and is headed by seniors Kyle Lyons and Kendall Deck as well

as sophomore Megan Bozek. Lyons has two years of starting experience and last year she had a breakout offensive year as part of the offensive penalty corner unit that merited a plethora of accolades, including NFHCA All-Region Team, America East All-Conference Team, America East All-Championship Team and Wildcat Invitational MVP. Lyons recorded 11 goals and three assists for 25 points to tie for the team lead in goals and rank third in points. Deck is a three-year starter whose collegiate accolades include NFHCA All-Region Team and America East All-Conference Team. In the 2010 season, she reprised her role as a stopper on the offensive penalty corner unit to rank second both on the team in assists (11) and in the conference in assists per game. In addition to being an integral part of the defensive unit, Bozek, an America East All-Rookie Team selection who started all 21 games, was an instrumental part of both penalty corner units. She tied for fourth on the team in goals (six) and ranked fifth in both points (12) and shots. At the other end of the field, Bozek was credited with a defensive save in both America East postseason games. Jess Sweeney enters her senior year with limited playing time in two seasons at New Hampshire since transferring from Hofstra University, where she did not see game action as a freshman in 2008. Sweeney played in six games, including two starts, a year ago. She was particularly impressive as an emergency substitute in the America East championship game while Lyons was sidelined by injury. Katie Walborn adds depth to the unit after a strong spring season; she did not see any game action last year as a freshman. New Hampshire welcomes two ‘Cats to the fold on defense. Christine Albertelli garnered All-Region and AllAcademic Squad accolades last year as a senior at Marquette High School, where she holds the school records for career games played by a back and single-season games started. Maegan Grew helped backbone Winnacunnet High School to a New Hampshire state title with an undefeated record in 2010, when she was named the state’s Player of the Year; Grew was also a three-time All-State selection. goalkeeper New Hampshire is not lacking experience in goal, where two-year starter Katherine Nagengast has played 99.3% of the minutes the past two seasons – she played every second in goal as a sophomore in 2009 and all but 19:30 of 1482:09 last year, when she recorded two shutouts and held the opposition to one goal nine times. Nagengast backboned UNH to the 2010 America East regular-season title with a 5-0 record, 1.20 GAA and .786 save percentage. Overall in 21 games (all starts), she went 14-7 with a 1.96 GAA and .703 save percentage; the 14 wins marked the highest total by a UNH goalie since 2000. Nagengast was impressive at defending the home field, where she was 8-2 with a 1.41 GAA and .767 save percentage in 10 regular-season games at Memorial Field. Incoming freshman Carlie Tarbell will be Nagengast’s understudy in 2011. Tarbell was named to the NFHCA High School All-Region Team as well as the Independent School League MVP in 2010, when she recorded a 0.60 GAA, .904 save percentage and 10 shutouts in 20 games for The Rivers School. the schedule New Hampshire plays eight home games at Memorial Field and the 2011 schedule includes 14 non-conference games in addition to the five America East league matchups. The Wildcats battle three teams that advanced to the 2010 NCAA tournament as well as four other teams that were ranked in the final NFHCA Coaches Poll. UNH starts the season with a road trip to The Ohio State University, where the ‘Cats open play Aug. 27 against Kent State University; the Golden Flashes won the MAC tourney title and lost to American University in an NCAA tourney play-in game. One day later, it doesn’t get any easier against the aforementioned Buckeyes, who advanced to the national semifinals a year ago. New Hampshire plays its home opener Sept. 2 against regional rival Brown University, which closed the ‘10 season by winning four of its last five games. The Wildcats have a home game vs. Rutgers (Sept. 10) sandwiched by road games against regional rivals Providence (Sept. 4) and Dartmouth (Sept. 11). Other teams coming to Durham in September are Holy Cross (16th) and Northeastern (18th), and the ‘Cats begin defense of their America East regular-season title when they play host to Fairfield on the 30th. In between, the ‘Cats travel to Louisville to play Northwestern and the host school, and afterwards they hit the road to battle Michigan State. UNH begins a stretch of 3-of-4 games at home Oct. 9 against Stanford University. After a trip to league rival Boston U. (Oct. 14), the ‘Cats play host to Boston College (Oct. 16) and then Maine for Senior Day on Oct. 21. The Wildcats close out the America East portion of the schedule Oct. 29 at Albany and end the regular season one day later at Harvard. New Hampshire looks to extend its streak of consecutive league postseason appearances to five when the America East Championship is held Nov. 4-6 at the site of the highest seed.

The Joyce V. Hiller Scholarship Fund has been established at the University of New Hampshire Foundation through the generosity of Joyce V. Hiller. Joyce earned her degree in Physical Education from UNH in 1954 and was inducted into the Hall of Honor in 1998. Over the years, she has been an enthusiastic advocate and generous benefactor for UNH women’s athletics, particularly the field hockey program. The scholarship is given with respect to what Joyce has meant to the field hockey program – a person who is always there with a helping hand and gives selflessly to the program. 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005

Marisa Didio Award

The Marisa Didio Award is bestowed upon a studentathlete who represents the Extra Mile Theory, which states “Some choose the shortest distance doing only what is required. Others give of themselves more freely and go the extra mile.” Marisa Didio served as head coach of the UNH field hockey team for six seasons (1983-87, 1989) and led the Wildcats to the national championship game in 1986. She compiled an 84-25-9 record and also led the women’s lacrosse team to a 31-10 mark – and the University’s only NCAA national championship in 1985 – in three seasons. 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011
