Media information NCAA tourney appearances: 1984 '85 '86' 87 '91 2004 '08 1 University of New Hampshire 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 mission of the intercollegiate athletics program at UNH is to provide opportunities for these student-athletes to enrich their collegiate experience through participation on athletic teams that are competitive at the conference level and beyond. 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. T rad ition . P r id e. Exc ellen c e. 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. The University has also has completed construction on four capital construction building projects, including a renovation of Dimond Library. At a cost of $31.1 million, the new 120,000 square foot Biological Sciences Building (Rudman Hall) and the Spaulding Life Sciences renovation project provides state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories. The $8.2 million renovation project for the Memorial Union Building modernized the existing student union building to include kitchen and dining facilities, two theaters, student mailboxes, lounges and meeting rooms and the Bookstore. Holloway Commons Dining Hall was completed and provides students with one of the finest on-campus dining facilities in the nation. In November 1995, construction reached completion on the Whittemore Center, a $27 million Recreation and Sports Complex. This project included a state-of-the-art 6,000 to 7,500 seat arena used for hockey, basketball, gymnastics, concerts and convocations, as well as a new three-level recreational sports facility within the structure that had housed Snively Arena. UNH is home to the NASA-recognized Space Science Center; the Institute for Study for Earth, Oceans and Space; and the Institute of Marine Science and Engineering. The English program is staffed by winners of the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, the MacArthur Fellowship, the Edgar Allen Poe Award and the Young Poets Award. The Whittemore School of Business and Economics, established in 1962, is consistently ranked near the top among all business schools in a nationwide poll of business school deans. University of New Hampshire Tradition. Pri de . Exce l l e n ce . 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.

UNH’s football team qualified for the NCAA FCS postseason for the seventh consecutive year, which is the longest active streak in the nation. The Wildcats extended their mark of consecutive weeks ranked in the top 25 to 97, which is best in the CAA. In the inaugural Colonial Clash at Gillette Stadium (home of the NFL’s New England Patriots), UNH defeated UMass, 39-13. The game featured the largest crowd in CAA history (32,848) and was the highest-rated telecast in league history (0.88 rating on Comcast SportsNet New England). That victory against UMass was one of five against nationally-ranked teams in the 2010 season. The ski team (men’s and women’s combined) placed eighth at the 2011 NCAA Ski Championships to mark UNH’s top finish in 11 seasons. Junior men’s alpine skier Zach Clayton earned All-America First Team honors with a third-place finish in the slalom and Second Team with a 10th-place finish in the giant slalom at the NCAA Championships. UNH won the ECAC Swimming & Diving Championships title for the first time since 2005, as the Wildcats totaled 11 ECAC winners led by senior Amy Perrault, who contributed to six first-place finishes and helped the ‘Cats break five records to earn the Women’s Swimmer of the Meet award. Head coach Josh Willman led a women’s swimming & diving staff that was honored as Coaching Staff of the Year at both the America East Championships and ECAC Championships. The women’s outdoor track & field team won the New England Championship title for the first time in program history. Graduate student Rita Ciambra won her third America East conference title in the pole vault with a cleared height of 4.15 meters, which broke both the school and conference championship records. Ciambra went on to claim the New England outdoor title with a meet-record performance. Erica Jesseman, Camille Quarles and Keely Maguire won individual titles at the New England meet; Jesseman and Quarles did so with school-record efforts. Whitney Frates of the field hockey team was selected to the 2010 Longstreth/NFHCA Division I All-America Second Team. UNH head coach Robin Balducci and her staff was recognized as the America East Coaching Staff of the Year after leading the Wildcats to the conference’s regular-season title with an unbeaten record of 5-0. The ‘Cats were just short of advancing to the NCAA tournament with an overtime loss in the America East title game. New Hampshire entered the NFHCA Poll for the first time since 2000 and climbed as high as No. 19. The ‘Cats compiled a 14-7 overall record to mark the most victories in a single season since the 2000 squad went 14-8. Men’s soccer shut out three teams in the America East conference tournament to become the first team to achieve that feat, but the ‘Cats were defeated in the league title game by virtue of penalty kicks. It was UNH’s sixth league tourney appearance in the past eight years. Colin O’Donnell was named the America East Goalkeeper of the Year for the second consecutive year and was one of 16 players named to the NSCAA Men’s College Scholar All-America First Team. O’Donnell tied UNH’s single-season shutout record (10) and broke the goals-against-average (GAA) mark at 0.43. He led the nation in save percentage (.902) and ranked second in GAA. New Hampshire finished as runner-up at the 2011 East Atlantic Gymnastics League (EAGL) Championship, which marked the team’s best finish since 2003. Head coach Gail Goodspeed registered her 500th career coaching victory – all at UNH – at the EAGL Championship. The Wildcats qualified for the NCAA Regional Championships and earned the No. 4 seed at the Norman (Oklahoma) Region. The women’s cross country team, led by a sixth-place individual effort from senior Sydney Fitzpatrick, ran to a second-place finish at the America East Championships. UNH then placed ninth in the 39-team field at the NCAA Northeast Regional. Fitzpatrick placed 15th overall to earn a spot on the NCAA All-Northeast Regional Team. The Wildcats, who climbed as high as No. 9 in the USTFCCA Northeast Region Poll, were named to the 2010 Division I Cross Country All-Academic Team. Men’s basketball head coach Bill Herrion recorded his 300th career coaching victory with a 65-60 victory against Colgate University (Dec. 4, 2010). UNH opened the season with a 5-2 record, which marked the team’s first 5-2 start since 1994-95. The Wildcats ended the season ranked 18th in the nation in scoring defense. Senior guard Tyrone Conley became the 28th member of UNH’s 1,000-point club. He finished his stellar career sixth all time with 1,304 points. Women’s lacrosse extended its league record for consecutive appearances in the America East Championship tournament to 14 years by advancing to the 2011 semifinals. UNH peaked at #2 in the nation in caused turnovers and was ranked in the top five for five consecutive weeks. The Wildcats had two representatives on each of the four America East All-Conference Teams (First, Second, Rookie and All-Academic). Women’s soccer qualified for the America East Championships for the 10th consecutive year, which is the longest streak in league history. The Wildcats finished the regular season ranked second in America East in points, goals and assists. Three of the 11 spots on the America East All-Academic Team were claimed by UNH players. Men’s outdoor track & field senior Mike Simon ended his impressive throwing career in the javelin with a fourth consecutive America East conference title and a first-place finish in the College Division at the prestigious Penn Relays. Matthew Guarente led the men’s indoor track & field team with an America East conference title in the high jump. The Wildcats also had a pair of second-place finishes (weight throw and 5,000 meter run) en route to fifth place overall. UNH went on to place eighth at the New England Championships. Ciambra won her third consecutive America East conference indoor track & field title in the pole vault and Megan Donahue raced to first place in the 500-meter run as the ‘Cats took fourth place overall. UNH finished seventh at the New England Championships, where Camille Quarles won the triple jump and Kaitlyn Dugan captured the pentathlon. Senior Sara Heldman of the volleyball team was honored as the 2010 America East Setter of the Year; she is the first Wildcat to earn that accolade. Heldman is the first conference player to earn both Setter of the Year and Defensive Specialist of the Year (2009) honors, and the second player in UNH history to record 1,000 digs and 1,000 assists. Under the guidance of first-year head coach Maureen Magarity – the youngest head coach in collegiate basketball (men’s or women’s) – the women’s basketball team advanced to the America East quarterfinals by doubling the previous year’s conference win total to finish sixth in the league standings. T rad ition . P r id e. Exc ellen c e. Memorial Field Memorial Field, which has been home for the women’s lacrosse team since the program’s inception, was renovated in July 2002. The renovation transformed a grass field adjacent to the Whittemore Center into an AstroTurf facility that features 95,000 square feet of playing surface, full lighting and Bigglestone Plaza. The project cost approximately $1.5 million and was built in conjunction with Bremner Field, which is a 110,000 square-foot AstroPlay facility located on what was formerly known as Upper Field. The UNH women’s lacrosse team made its debut on renovated Memorial Field vs. the University of Massachusetts on March 14, 2003. Memorial Field proved to be a true homefield advantage in the 2004 season when the ‘Cats went 7-1 in the regular season and then won both the semifinal and final games of the America East Championship to earn automatic qualifying status to the NCAAs. Jerry Azumah Performance Center T he F acilities UNH A thletics Tradition. Pri de . Exce l l e n ce . UNH athletics, steeped in tradition, continues to excel in the 21st century. In the 2010-11 calendar year of competition, the Wildcats ranked 76th out of more than 370 Division I schools in the Learfield Sports NACDA Directors’ Cup final standings. UNH’s 252.50 points, which ranked second in school history behind only the 2009-10 point total, was best in the America East conference, second highest among all CAA schools and third highest in New England. New Hampshire student-athletes excel in competition and in the classroom. UNH ranked second nationally among all public institutions with a Graduation Success Rate (GSR) or 95 percent for its student-athletes, which led both the America East conference and the Colonial Athletic Association. 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 that tied for fifth best in the nation. Furthermore, four Wildcat teams – football, men’s indoor track & field, men’s outdoor track & field and women’s gymnastics – were honored by the NCAA for multiyear Academic Progress Rates (APR) in the top 10 percent of all teams in their respective sports. The UNH football team represented the only Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) program from a public school to receive an APR Public Recognition Award; a total of only 12 FCS teams were feted, and UNH was one of four nonIvy League schools to achieve the accolade. UNH had the highest number of honorees on the 2010 America East Fall Academic Honor Roll with 95 representatives en route to a second-place finish in the 2010-11 America East Academic Cup for the third time in four years. Both the women’s indoor track & field team and the women’s outdoor track & field team registered the highest grade-point average in their respective sports. Senior men’s soccer player Colin O’Donnell and women’s track & field graduate student Rita Ciambra were recipients of the America East Scholar-Athlete of the Year in their respective sport. The UNH women’s ice hockey team boasted an alltime best 13 student-athletes on the Women’s Hockey East Association All-Academic Team. Senior captain Courtney Birchard was named a Hockey East First Team All-Star for the second consecutive year. Birchard skated in two international tournaments as a member of Hockey Canada and earned a gold medal at both the Four Nations Cup and MLP Cup. UNH’s women’s ice hockey team recorded its 200th Whittemore Center-victory as well as the 700th overall victory in program history, and that win total is more than any U.S. women’s collegiate ice hockey team. Men’s hockey made a 10th straight NCAA tourney appearance and advanced to the regional final for the third consecutive year in 2011; it marked the team’s 14th NCAA appearance in 15 years and 21st overall. New Hampshire is the only team with an NCAA postseason victory each of the past three years (2009-10-11). The Wildcats finished at No. 9 in both national polls; they were ranked as high as No. 2 (four weeks). Paul Thompson became the eighth player in school history to be named one of 10 finalists for the Hobey Baker Memorial Award. UNH has had a top 10 finalist three of the past four years. (2008-10-11). Thompson was named to the All-America First Team and was the Hockey East Player of the Year. The team recorded 20 wins for the 14th time in the last 15 seasons and head coach Dick Umile has 18 20-win seasons in 21 years at the University. New Hampshire finished the decade (2000-09) as the winningest program in Hockey East play and its .651 The Azumah Performance Center opened in the summer of 2003 as a renovation and complete overhaul of the existing strength and conditioning facility located in the UNH Field House. The massive workout facility, which was originally 4,000 square feet, grew to over 6,000 square feet during a summer renovation in 2009. The renovated center features 5,000 pounds of Olympic weights, 7,000 pounds of dumbbells, 18 Powerlift platform stations, 12 Hammer strength machines, an additional 15,000 pounds of weights and 1,500 square feet of warmup area. Academic Center The University of New Hampshire athletic department significantly upgraded its Academic Center in the summer of 2003, and it continues to change handin-hand with the needs of student-athletes. The Academic Center provides a secluded, quiet area in the Field House for women’s lacrosse players to focus on academics. Each of the Academic Center computers has internet access and features wireless access for laptop computers. The Academic Center reflects the University’s commitment to academic excellence. UNH’s Michaela Hardy was selected as the 2008 America East Women’s Lacrosse Scholar-Athlete of the Year and she was joined on the IWLCA All-Academic Team by Sarah Von Bargen. That duo, as well as Ashley Durepo, was named to the America East Women’s Lacrosse All-Academic Team. In 2011, a total of 13 Wildcats were named to the America East Academic Honor Roll, three of whom were also distinguished on the Commissioner's Honor Roll; Allie Duclos was selected to the league's All-Academic Team for the third consecutive year in 2011 and was joined by teammate Jenny Simpson. WE ARE NEW HAMPSHIRE 4 Wildcat Lacrosse America East tourney appearances 1998 '99 2000 '01 '02 '03 '04 '05 '06 '07 '08 '09 '10 '11 '12 Wildcat Lacrosse NCAA tourney appearances: 1984 '85 '86' 87 '91 2004 '08 5 Tradition. Pri de . Exce l l e n ce . President Mark W. 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. 6 Wildcat Lacrosse America East tourney appearances 1998 '99 2000 '01 '02 '03 '04 '05 '06 '07 '08 '09 '10 '11 '12 Marty Scarano Director of Athletics 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.

Kate McAfee Assistant Athletic Director for Event Management Paul Chapman enters his 10th year as the director of strength and conditioning at the University of New Hampshire. During his tenure at UNH, Chapman helped coordinate the building and subsequent expansion 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 Paul Chapman John Ciani 18 intercollegiate sports. He also oversaw and administered four weight training facilities and supervised a staff on 10 assistants. 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 fouryear playing career. Upon graduation, he was a fourth-round draft choice of the Saskatchewan Rough Riders in the Canadian Football League. John Ciani is entering his 10th year directing the strength and conditioning program for the UNH women’s lacrosse 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. 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. 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 studentathletes 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 women's lacrosse. The student-athletes train year-round to perform at their highest level throughout the season. The UNH women’s lax 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.

Assistant Coach Bryana Borrelli joined the University of New Hampshire women’s lacrosse staff as an assistant coach in August 2011. She will work closely with the Wildcats’ defensive unit and the goalkeepers during the 2011-12 season. Borrelli began her coaching career when she was hired as an assistant coach at Iona College in August 2010. In her one season with the Gaels, the team established a program record for best start in MAAC history and advanced to the MAAC Championships for just the second time in program history en route to placing five student-athletes on the All-MAAC teams and six on the MAAC All-Academic Team. Borrelli is a 2010 graduate of Hofstra University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education during a standout four-year career with the Pride.

Ashley Durepo Volunteer Coach Ashley Durepo (UNH ’09) joined the UNH women’s lacrosse coaching staff as a volunteer assistant in January 2012. Her staff duties will include working with the midfielders, including both the ride and transition. Durepo was a three-time America East All-Academic Team and two-time America East All-Conference Second Team honoree in her four-year career as a UNH Wildcat that spanned the 2006-09 seasons. She led the Wildcats to one NCAA tournament appearance and four America East tourney appearances in which the ‘Cats finished as runner-up three times. Durepo recorded 90 goals and 28 assists for 118 points in 72 career games. In addition to being a consistent point producer, she was annually among the team leaders in ground balls, draw controls and caused turnovers. As a senior, the midfielder ranked third in goals, fourth in points, ground balls, draw controls and shots, and she recorded the highest shooting percentage among eight double-digit goal scorers. Durepo recorded a point in 13 of 19 games with 11 multiple-point efforts. In 2008, Durepo ranked second on the squad in assists, fourth in points and fifth in both draw controls and caused turnovers as she was one of just two Wildcats to record double digits in goals, assists, ground balls, draw controls and caused turnovers. As a sophomore in 2007, she ranked third in draw controls and fourth in assists as well as fifth in both ground balls and caused turnovers. Durepo recorded the team’s longest point-scoring streak (11 games) and tallied a point in 14 of 16 games.

Twenty-four players. One goal. All in. That’s what it will take for the 2012 University of New Hampshire women’s lacrosse team to obtain its goal as America East champions. Led by third-year UNH head coach Michael Daly, the Wildcats return 16 letterwinners, including 10 starters, from last year’s squad. Those players compiled 107 goals and 49 points for 156 points, which accounted for 65% of the total goals, 63% of the assists and 64% of the points. They also accounted for all 17 starts and every second played in goal. Senior captains Ilana Cohen (Andover, Mass.) and Kate Keagins (Bay Shore, N.Y.) are the nucleus of a formidable midfield. Cohen was a 2011 America East All-Conference First Team selection as she ranked third on the team in goals (24) and points (37); she tied for second in assists (13) and also reached double digits in both ground balls and draw controls. Cohen was a consistent goal producer – she led the team in shooting percentage – with a tally in 13 of 16 games and seven multiple-goal efforts. Keagins led last year’s squad in both assists (16) and points (39) as she was one of two ‘Cats to record double digits in goals, assists, ground balls, draw controls and caused turnovers; she also led the ‘Cats in ground balls and caused turnovers and ranked fourth in both goals and draw controls. Keagins recorded a point in 16 of 17 games with 11 multiple-point efforts that included seven multiple-goal performances. She was an All-Conference First Team selection as a sophomore. The midfield also includes junior captain Chelsea Cyester (Parker, Colo.) and classmate Amber Casiano (South Windsor, Conn.) as well as sophomore Molly Gaffey (Hampton, N.H.) and newcomers Brooke McGillis (Berwyn, Pa.), Rachael Nock (Severna Park, Md.) and Laura Puccia (Rochester, N.Y.). Casiano recorded a point in 12 of 17 games and ranked fifth on the team – fourth among returning players – in goals (18), assists (eight) and points (26). She also ranked third in draw controls. Cyester played an increased role last year, when she saw action in 13 of 17 games and was in the starting lineup seven times. That trend is expected to continue in 2012. Gaffey appeared in 12 games a year ago. Junior Ally Stager (Reading, Mass.) and freshman Morgan Karanasios (Bedford, N.H.) are going to be on the sidelines for the 2012 season. In addition to her statistical contributions (second in draw controls, third in caused turnovers, fourth in ground balls), Stager’s physical presence will be missed by the Wildcats. Junior Jenny Simpson (New Canaan, Conn.) leads a young attack. She was atop last year’s UNH leaderboard in goals with 27, and she ranked fourth in points (30) as well as third in shots. Simpson scored a goal in 14 of 17 games – that included nine multiple-goal efforts – and ended the year with a goal in eight consecutive games. Meghan Bridges (Sandy Hook, Conn.) is the only other returning ‘Cat on attack. She played in 16 of 17 games and contributed six points (4g, 2a). Becca Graves (Peabody, Mass.), Kayleigh Hinkle (Glenelg, Md.) and Emma Kriss (Rockville Centre, N.Y.) are the newcomers. Kriss played in all 15 games for Old Dominion Wildcat Lacrosse University as a freshman in 2011 and finished the year with four points (1g, 3a). There is also a lot of youth on the defensive unit, which includes senior Erin Levesque (Duxbury, Mass.), junior captain Casey Doyle (Ivyland, Pa.) and four sophomores. Levesque emerged as a starter during her sophomore season in 2010 and continued that role last year. Doyle, who was one of just two ‘Cats to start all 17 games a year ago, has helped anchor the UNH defense since her arrival in ’10. She ranked third overall during the 2011 season and is second among returning players in ground balls; she also ranked fourth in caused turnovers. The sophomore quartet is comprised of Brittany Conner (Wilton, Conn.), Jamie DePetris (Radnor, Pa.), Cara Dowdle (Northbrook, Ill.) and Cori Rees (East Hampstead, N.H.). Rees played in all 17 games and was in the starting lineup 14 times en route to being selected to the America East All-Rookie Team; she recorded double digits in both ground balls and draw controls. Dowdle joined Rees on the 2011 America East All-Rookie Team as she started in nine of 10 games played. Conner saw action in 11 games with five starts while DePetris started six games with 10 overall appearances. Two experienced veterans with distinctly different styles return in goal for the Wildcats. Senior goalkeeper Kate Gunts (Wilton, Conn.) started seven games and played in nine games overall a year ago to increase her career numbers to 36 games and 25 starts. Her career statistics include a 17-8 record and 9.11 GAA, and last year Gunts had a .459 save percentage in league action. Junior goalie Kathleen O’Keefe (Chatham, N.J.) earned America East All-Conference Second Team recognition in 2011, one year after being named to the league’s All-Rookie Team. She started 10 games with 12 appearances and five victories in both ’10 and ’11; last year, she missed the final three games due to injury and finished with a 9.07 GAA as well as 21 ground balls, which ranked fifth on the team. Freshman Taylor Hurwitz (Holland, Pa.) completes the trio of UNH goalies. New Hampshire opens the 2012 season Feb. 25 (1 p.m.) at home against intrastate rival and 14th-ranked Dartmouth College. The Wildcats then travel to play regional rival UMass on Feb. 29 and play host to UConn on March 7. UNH travels to the west coast to battle Stanford University and Fresno State before opening a three-game homestand against Fairfield (March 18), Binghamton (March 24) and Vanderbilt (March 28). The ‘Cats return to America East conference play with road games against Vermont and Boston University and then conclude a stretch of three road games versus Lehigh. Albany, the America East defending champion, travels to Durham for a March 14 game. UNH travels to Columbia for a midweek game before playing host to UMBC on the 21st for Senior Day. One week later, the Wildcats conclude the America East slate at Stony Brook and the regular-season finale is May 1 at Boston College. The top four teams in the conference standings advance to the America East Championship, which will be held May 3 & 5 at the site of the top seed. New Hampshire has advanced to the tourney each of the past 14 years, which is a league record.

UNH then lost consecutive games against nationally-ranked teams (Dartmouth and UMass) before reeling off three consecutive victories to improve to 4-2 overall. The winning streak began with a 17-goal explosion at Colgate. Hayley Rausch and Amber Casiano led six ‘Cats in multiple points with five apiece. UNH fell behind 8-4 but rallied to take a 9-8 lead into halftime. With the score tied at 10, the Wildcats utilized a pair of three-goal spurts to build a 16-11 advantage. Game 5 sent UNH to Fairfield University, and the ‘Cats returned home as 12-8 victors. After falling behind 2-0, UNH closed the first half with a 3-0 run to take a 6-4 lead, and the Stags – not to be confused with Ally Stager – never pulled even thereafter. UNH returned home and a balanced offense produced an 11-8 victory vs. George Mason in which the ‘Cats recorded a 31-14 shot advantage. With a 9-6 lead, Allie Duclos and JoJo Curro scored 12 seconds apart to build a sizable advantage. Spring break for the lacrosse team meant a trip south, as the ‘Cats travelled to Vanderbilt and continued to Georgia for a neutral-site game against Presbyterian. Vandy stormed out to a 5-0 lead en route to an 11-6 defeat of UNH, but New Hampshire responded with a 20-6 win vs. PC in which nine ‘Cats tallied multiple points. UNH recorded season highs in goals and shots (38), and it marked the most goals scored away from Durham since April 2007. The month of March closed with the America East conference opener at UMBC. The Wildcats pulled within 9-8 with 22:51 on the clock, but could not level the score in a 10-8 loss. An April Fool’s Day game at Harvard began well as UNH built a 6-0 lead 20 minutes into the game, but the Crimson rallied to an 8-6 victory. Through 10 games, UNH had a 5-5 record and had played just two games at Memorial Field. Next on the schedule was a home game against Boston University, a team that had defeated the ‘Cats each of the previous 13 meetings. UNH battled back from a four-goal first-half deficit to force overtime and Rausch scored her fifth goal of the game with 38 seconds remaining in the second extra session to give the Wildcats a 13-12 win. Kathleen O’Keefe, who entered with the team trailing 8-5, stopped five of nine shots on goal spanning the last 40:20 of the game to backbone the comeback effort. After vanquishing that foe, the Wildcats once again hit the road to play an unbeaten Albany squad. After facing a 7-1 deficit, UNH rallied within 9-6 and had an opportunity to close within two goals. The Great Danes didn’t allow that to happen, however, and scored three consecutive goals to pull away. One week later, UNH began a three-game homestand with a 12-6 victory against Stony Brook behind five-point efforts from Rausch and Ilana Cohen. And then UNH built a 6-0 lead against Vermont, but the Catamounts won the battle of the ‘Cats by rallying for an 8-7 victory. Senior Day brought nationally-ranked Boston College to town on a Friday night – one of the few good-weather games of the 2011 season. It was also one of the team’s best all-around efforts of the season, as UNH held a pair of one-goal leads and was even with the Eagles, 6-6, at the half. BC opened the second half with six consecutive goals, however, en route to a 14-9 victory. Two days later, UNH battled Binghamton in what amounted to a play-in game – the winner would earn the #4 seed of the America East Championship while the season would end for the other team. With 15 minutes left in regulation, it looked like the Wildcats’ season was the one coming to an end as they faced a 10-5 deficit. But Kate Gunts stopped all six shots the rest of the way and the ‘Cats closed the game on a 7-0 run to extend their league record streak of consecutive appearances in the America East Championship tournament to 14. That victory set up a return trip to Albany for a semifinal matchup against the top-seeded and still undefeated Great Danes. UNH opened strong by winning the opening draw, striking for a 1-0 lead and then gaining possession of the ensuing draw control. UA made a stop, however, and sustained possession for eight minutes to build an 8-1 lead. The ‘Cats outscored the home team 4-2 spanning the last 20 minutes but saw its season end. Keagins and Curro were the two ‘Cats who recorded double digits in goals, assists, ground balls, draw controls and caused turnovers. Cohen and Duclos reached double digits in four of those statistics; Cohen fell short in draw controls while Duclos had single figures in assists. Duclos and Casey Doyle were the only two Wildcats to start all 17 games; five others (Cori Rees, Jenny Simpson, Casiano, Keagins, Stager) played every game.
