Season Review

wildcat HOCKEY Just like any other year, the 2009 UNH Wildcats had a number of highly skilled players on its roster. Unlike any other year, the team had to adapt to a short bench due to its size of 16 players, including two goalies. Furthermore, three players changed from their established positions – two made a switch from defense to forward while another moved from forward to the blue line – during the course of the season. Nevertheless, the ‘Cats opened the season with six games in 11 days and went undefeated (4-0-2) in that span with a 1-02 mark against nationally-ranked teams. In the first game of the season, UNH skated to a 2-2 tie at home against nationally-ranked Boston College. And in the first Hockey East women’s game decided by a shootout, the Wildcats prevailed 10 when senior captain Kacey Bellamy scored in the fifth round. After defeating Niagara twice on the road – Sam Faber recorded her 150th career point Oct. 11 vs. the Purple Eagles – the ‘Cats netted third-period goals 21 seconds apart to rally for a 3-3 tie at nationally-ranked UConn (the Huskies gained the extra point in the league standings by winning the shootout). New Hampshire returned to action at the Whittemore Center and upended nationally-ranked St. Lawrence, 3-2, as well as Clarkson, 2-1, with Jenn Wakefield extending her goal-scoring streak to five games. UNH’s 22-game regular-season unbeaten streak (19-0-3) ended at nationallyranked Boston University, which recorded its first ever win against the Wildcats with a 3-2 victory. The loss also snapped UNH’s Hockey East regular-season unbeaten streak at 40 games (36-0-4). The team’s mastery of Yale continued with a win that improved the Wildcats’ lifetime record vs. the Bulldogs to 18-0-1 and the 2009 record to 5-1-2. Behind a third-period shorthanded goal by Faber, UNH rallied to tie Boston U., 2-2, at the Whittemore Center. (BU once again prevailed in the shootout.) The Wildcats continued league play

42

with a 4-1 win against UVM and a 7-1 victory at Maine in which they netted three first-period power-play goals in 93 seconds. UNH then traveled south to Fort Myers, Florida to face off against top-ranked Wisconsin for a two-game weekend series. In the opener, the ‘Cats led by scores of 1-0 and 2-1 in the first period but the Badgers rallied to take a lead before the first intermission en route to victory. The next day, UNH limited the Badgers to two goals but returned home with another loss. The Wildcats then played host to Northeastern University, and Kayley Herman recorded her first shutout of the season in a 2-0 victory. Up next was a trip to Hamilton, N.Y., where the ‘Cats battled Colgate. Despite a 34-2 shot advantage in the third period, UNH’s comeback bid fell short in a 5-4 loss. New Hampshire went unbeaten (10-2) in three December games to enter the break with a 9-4-5 overall record. The month opened with a home game against nationally-ranked Harvard, and backboned by a career-high 36 saves from Herman – including 20 in the third period – the ‘Cats skated to a 1-1 tie. UNH followed that with a 3-3 tie at nationally-ranked Boston U. and then Lindsey Minton, in her first career start, stopped all 22 shots she faced to record a 3-0 win against Northeastern. January began with a road trip to nemesis Providence College. New Hampshire recorded a total of 43 shots but lost the game. Following that game, head coach Brian McCloskey shook up the lineup by moving Courtney Birchard to the blue line and defenseman Kelly Cahill to the corps of forwards. And the ‘Cats did not lose again in the regular season. In a mid-January showdown against intrastate rival, nationally-ranked Dartmouth College, the Wildcats responded with an 8-3 victory behind the efforts of Wakefield (2g, 3a) and Bellamy (4a); the

‘Cats went 5-for-7 on the power play vs. the Big Green. Following a 4-2 road win against Northeastern, UNH swept a two-game home series against Maine by the scores of 3-0 and 5-1 to move into first place in the Hockey East standings. One week later, a home-and-home series against nationally-ranked Boston College pitted the top two teams in Hockey East. In the opener at UNH’s Whittemore Center, Herman matched her personal best of 36 saves, Faber tallied three assists and Wakefield netted a pair of goals to propel the ‘Cats to a 4-2 win. The next day at BC, Faber became the fourth UNH Wildcat to reach the 100-assist milestone, Kelly Paton recorded her first career hat trick and Minton stopped 25 shots to lift New Hampshire to a 5-2 victory and solidify UNH’s position atop the league standings. The ‘Cats then extended their winning streak to eight games with a two-game sweep at Vermont in which they outscored the hosts 9-3.The weekend was highlighted by Bellamy’s 100th career point – she became the sixth UNH defensemen to reach that milestone. New Hampshire then returned to the site of its most recent loss, albeit two months earlier, to face off against the PC Friars. The Wildcats built a 3-1 lead in the third period and fended off the host team in the waning minutes to put themselves in position to clinch a share of the Hockey East regular-season title with a weekend sweep of Providence. And UNH did exactly that as Paton scored twice – she recorded her 100th career point on the first tally – to lead the Wildcats to a 4-1 win at the Whittemore Center. The victory not only ensured a share of the league regular-season title, it secured the top seed and with it the right to host the semifinal and final rounds of the Hockey East Championship. In a rare late-season non-conference matchup (the game was rescheduled from December), UNH traveled to nationallyranked Harvard.

2009-10 UNH WOMEN’S HOCKEY

wildcat HOCKEY 2-1, however, on Birchard’s power-play goal 1:51 later. UMD reestablished a two-goal advantage with 2:17 remaining and scored an empty-net power-play goal with 11 seconds to play to secure the victory and end the Wildcats’ season. At the end of the year, Wakefield was among the national leaders in five statistics: game-winning goals (2nd); goals per game, power-play goals and shorthanded goals (3rd); and points per game (13th). Paton ranked among the best in power-play goals (14th); points per game (22nd); and goals per game and assists per game (24th). Faber, meanwhile, was sixth in shorthanded goals and 13th in assists per game. Bellamy finished third in defenseman scoring. The Class of 2009 recorded 118 wins – the highest total by any UNH class – and a .844 winning percentage. Included in that is a 63-4-8 record (.893 win%) at the Whittemore Center and a 73-4-7 mark (.911) in Hockey East that does not include 8-0 in postseason league play.

Season Review

Minton, coming off her Hockey East Rookie of the Week effort against the Friars, stopped all 17 shots she faced in the third period to send the game into overtime tied at 2. She made three more saves in the extra session –increasing her career-high total to 33 – and Courtney Birchard scored with 39 seconds remaining in OT to lift the ‘Cats to a 3-2 victory against the Crimson. It was the 20th win of the season for New Hampshire, and it marked the seventh time in as many seasons that head coach Brian McCloskey led the program to 20+ wins. UNH closed the 2009 regular season with a home-andhome series against nationally-ranked UConn. The Wildcats, who rallied from a two-goal, third-period deficit back in October to force a 3-3 tie, once again erased a 3-1 deficit en route to a 4-3 victory in which Jenn Wakefield scored the game-winning goal with 92 seconds to play. On UNH’s Senior Day – with a tribute to seniors Kacey Bellamy, Sam Faber, Maggie Joyce and Angela Taylor – it was Wakefield and Kelly Cahill who scored two goals apiece to lead the ‘Cats to a 4-1 victory. With the 13-game winning streak, UNH entered the postseason with a 22-5-5 overall record. As the top seed of the Hockey East tourney, UNH received a bye in the opening round. On the eve of the semifinals, five Wildcats were honored at the annual league banquet. Brian McCloskey was named Coach of the Year while Bellamy, Faber and Wakefield were named to the First Team and Kelly Paton was a Second Team selection. The postseason began with a semifinal matchup against Providence, which advanced out of the first round with a 3-0 victory against UConn. The Wildcats took a 1-0 lead on Bellamy’s power-play goal and quickly doubled the advantage when Julie Allen scored 83 seconds later. PC pulled within 2-1 in the second period but never did level the score, and UNH moved through to the championship game with a 3-1 victory. In that title game, New Hampshire prevailed 2-1 against nationally-ranked Boston College to extend its winning streak to 15 games – and its home unbeaten streak to 30 games (260-4) – to win its fourth consecutive league tournament title and improve to 24-5-5 overall. Bellamy once again gave the ‘Cats a 1-0 lead with a goal midway through the first period and Micaela Long scored less that four minutes later to extend the advantage to 2-0. Minton held the Eagles scoreless for 53 minutes before they pulled within 2-1 with 6:38 remaining in the game. Bellamy garnered Tourney MVP honors and was joined on the All-Tournament Team by Birchard, Long and Paton. Hours later, the announcement was made that UNH would play an NCAA quarterfinal home game against University of Minnesota-Duluth, the team that defeated the ‘Cats in the previous year’s Frozen Four. Following two scoreless periods, the visiting Bulldogs took a 2-0 lead with tallies at 2:49 and 10:08. UNH pulled within

The University

wildcat HOCKEY

The University of New Hampshire was originally founded as a land-grant college whose mission was to shape and educate citizenry among the state’s farmers, business people and engineers. Today, the University is a land-, sea-, and space-grant university serving a growing undergraduate student body of about 11,000 and a graduate population of 3,000 in addition to 600 full-time faculty members, 92% of which have earned their doctorate degree. The university has grown into a top public research university occupying 2,600 acres of classic living and learning space, while still maintaining the look and feel of a New England liberal arts college with a faculty dedicated to teaching. UNH’s student to faculty ratio registers at 17:1 with 84% of its classes having 50 students or less. As one of the most prestigious institutions in the Northeast, the University of New Hampshire has always been recognized as a leader in education and research, spanning all fields of study and uniting them through interdisciplinary programs, labs, farms, theatres, research centers, and libraries. Founded in 1866 as the New Hampshire 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 purpose for the grants was to establish colleges that would serve the sons and daughters of farming and laboring families. New Hampshire College was originally situated in Hanover, N.H. Here it was in connection with Dartmouth College before moving to Durham in 1893 after Benjamin Thompson bequeathed land and money to further the development of the college. The state legislature then granted its new charter as the University of New Hampshire in 1923. The University hosts nearly 550 international students from more than 40 countries and boasts a population of students from 49 states. Along with over 100 majors offered, UNH encompasses seven schools and colleges that undergraduates can choose from: the College of Liberal Arts, College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, School of Health and Human Services, College of Life Sciences and Agricultures, Whittemore School of Business and Economics, and the Thompson School of Applied Science. And at the very heart of the University’s undergraduate studies is the General Education Program. The GEP is a core program with a breadth of academic subjects that aims to acquaint the student with some of the major modes of thought necessary to understand oneself, others, society, and the world. The University prides itself as being a top 10 entrepreneurial campus (Forbes.com and The Princeton Review) and is among the top 30 universities nationally in science research funding from NASA. 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 an inspiring faculty of winners of the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, the MacArthur Fellowship, the Edgar Allen Poe Award and the Young Poets Award. In addition, the Whittemore School of Business and Economics, established in 1962, was recently selected second among all business schools in a nationwide pool of business school deans. New Hampshire also graduates students who attend top-notch graduate schools, including Law School at Harvard and Cornell, Engineering at Stanford, and Medical school at Dartmouth, John Hopkins, and Harvard.

Athletic Department Mission Statement

The mission of the intercollegiate athletics program at UNH is to provide student-athletes a collegiate experience that is enriched by their participation in programs which are competitive at the NCAA Division I level both regionally and nationally. The intercollegiate athletics program also plays an important by enhancing the quality of life for the University and statewide community by being a source of pride and identification with the University while always maintaining high standards of academic scholarship and integrity. To fulfill its mission, the intercollegiate program must: (1) Provide student-athletes every opportunity to meet academic and athletic demands with the goal of graduating every student-athlete; (2) Provide resources necessary to field competitive teams with league affiliations, and to gain regional and national recognition; (3) Provide equitable opportunities for all intercollegiate athletics by the active recruitment of minority athletes, and provide equitable opportunities for all women student-athletes commensurate with that of their male counterparts; (4) Provide excellent facilities for all athletes to train, practice and play; (5) Conduct all operations within state and federal law, University policies, rules of the NCAA, and athletics conferences in which the University competes.

UNH Diversity Statement

The University seeks excellence through diversity among its administrators, faculty, staff, and students. The university prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, veteran status, or marital status. The University of New Hampshire is committed to creating a more diverse community, knowing that “inclusion, diversity and equity are values inextricably linked to our mission of educational excellence.” This diversity strengthens our ability to reach our individual and collective potential and to provide better services and care for all faculty, staff, and students.

The University

In the last few years, several of the athletic facilities have received major upgrades and improvements. In September 2001, the University completed a new $2.15 million track and field facility. The Jerry Azumah Performance Center, a brand new strength and conditioning facility located in the UNH Field House, was dedicated July 8, 2003. UNH athletics has also added two brand new $1.5 million outdoor artificial fields at Memorial Field (AstroTurf) and Bremner Field (AstroPlay). Lundholm Gymnasium has received some major overhauls, including a new playing surface, new lights, a new sound system and, most recently, a brand new bleacher system in the summer of 2007. A third artificical field – Field Turf – was also installed in Cowell Stadium in July ‘07. In addition to the incredible improvements of its athletic facilities, the University has upgraded and renovated a large part of its academic campus as well. Most recently, Thompson Hall, one of the standing historical landmarks of the University, has been beautifully refurbished and restored. The University also completed a $52 million renovation of Kingsbury Hall, adding 6,000 square feet of student project space for students in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, as well as a $4.5 revamp of Hewitt Hall to expand the School of Health and Human Services. In addition, the new 120,000 square foot Biological Sciences Building, Rudman Hall and the Spaulding Life Sciences Renovation project now provide state-of-the-art teaching and researching laboratories. The University also spent $15 million to complete Morse Hall, a new science and engineering building as well as $8.2 million to modernize the Memorial Union Building. This revision to the existing student union building consisted of several upgrades including top kitchen and dining facilities, two theaters, student mailboxes, lounges and meeting rooms, as well as additional retail spaces such as the University Bookstore. The University has also completed construction of the new dining facility on Main Street, Holloway Commons, as well as the renovation of the Dimond Library. In November of 1995, construction of the $27 million Recreation and Sport Complex reached completion. The new Whittemore Center includes a state-of-the-art 6,500 to 7,500 seat arena for hockey, concerts and convocations, as well as a new three-level recreational sports facility within the structure which had housed the old Snively Arena. Combining the atmosphere of a small New England liberal arts college with the resources and opportunities of a major research university, the University of New Hampshire is a place where all students can find or create their own niche and succeed. While the University offers an extremely broad academic base with an inspiring faculty, it also provides students with thousands of opportunities to get involved, either through athletics, campus recreation, student life, or research. The University is a dynamic community that not only challenges its members academically but also expands their understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity and leads to incredible growth as students, faculty, staff, and as a community.

Marty Scarano

Director

of

Athletics

Marty Scarano is in the midst of his ninth year as Director of Athletics at the University of New Hampshire. During his tenure, Scarano has heightened national exposure for UNH athletics with facility renovations and programmatic advancement being top priorities. There have been over $8.5 million in capitol improvements since his hiring in the summer of 2000. The Paul Sweet Oval (indoor track) was completely renovated in summer 2008 to include new surfaces, lighting, painting, infrastructure upgrades and replacement of windows that existed in the original architecture. Last summer, the Cowell Stadium grass field was replaced with a $1 million Field Turf synthetic surface. Additionally, 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 ‘01. 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 national arena. To accomplish that goal, UNH has taken on the task of hosting major NCAA championships, including men’s ice hockey NCAA regionals in ‘09 and ‘11. In 2007, New Hampshire was host of the NCAA Ski Championships and the NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Northeast Regional within a span of a month. The Wildcats also hosted a men’s hockey regional in ‘04 as well as the NCAA Women’s Ice Hockey Frozen Four in both ‘02 and ‘05. Furthermore, the 2005 NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Northeast Regional took place at UNH’s Whittemore Center. Last season, the Wildcat men’s and women’s ice hockey squads, football, women’s lacrosse, and the men’s and women’s ski teams all competed in the NCAA postseason; individual student-athletes also represented UNH in women’s cross country, women’s gymnastics and both men’s and women’s outdoor track. With all of these initiatives and accomplishments, UNH athletics has consistently been ranked in the top 90 programs among all Div. I institutions in the battle for the NACDA Directors Cup, which is well ahead of nearly all of UNH’s conference opponents. 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 near 90%, which puts it among the nation’s best in Div. I. UNH football returned to national prominence and was ranked No. 1 in the nation for parts of three consecutive year; they have advanced to the NCAA postseason each of the last four years with a stretch of three consecutive quarterfinal appearances. The men’s ice hockey team won the regular season Hockey East title in 2002, 2003, 2007 and 2008 and advanced to the NCAA Frozen Four in ‘02 and ‘03. The Wildcat women’s hockey team has won Hockey East regular season and tournament titles each of the past three years and advanced to the Frozen Four in both ‘06 and ‘08. 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 America East crowns in ‘02 and ‘03 and went on to the NCAA tournament in those 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. In 2007, Scarano was named the All-American Football Foundation Athletic Director of the Year for I-AA football in the Northeast region. He was also awarded the NACDA A.D. of the Year for the Football Championship Sub-Division. Scarano has 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 (currently the CAA), 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 2005-2006 and 2006-07. Scarano held the position of Athletics Director at Colorado College from July 1996 through June 2000. 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 and Corey, and a son, Kyle.

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).

UNH ATHLETICS

wildcat HOCKEY

UNH has a rich athletic tradition that is carrying into the 21st century. Wildcat hockey is certainly a cornerstone of the University’s athletic tradition. In addition to having the winningest women’s hockey program in the nation, the men’s hockey team has advanced to the NCAA tournament 15 of the last 18 years with four Frozen Four appearances, which includes two national runner-up finishes. The ‘Cats won back-to-back Hockey East titles in the 2002 and 2003 seasons and claimed the regular-season crown in 2007 and 2008. The football program has garnered national attention by advancing to the NCAA IAA postseason each of the past five years. The ‘Cats climbed to a No. 1 national ranking and advanced to the quarterfinals three consecutive years (‘04 ‘05 ‘06) in that span and also moved on to the quarters in ‘08. David Ball broke NFL Hall of Famer Jerry Rice’s record for career TDs in 2006 and quarterback Ricky Santos won the Walter Payton Award, which is presented to the most outstanding player in I-AA, that season. New Hampshire has also had success on the national level in skiing. The Wildcats, hosts of the 2007 NCAA Ski Championship, had eight All-America performances in 2009 and finished in ninth place overall to mark the program’s 31st top-10 national finish. UNH placed 11th overall and had two skiers garner All-America honors in both the 2007 and 2008 seasons. The men’s cross country team is one of the strongest in New England. UNH has

56

raced to an America East title five of the last seven years, including each of the last three (2006-08) and back-to-back from 2001-03. In between, the ‘Cats finished as runner-up two consecutive years. The women’s cross country team is one of the strongest in the region. The Wildcats won the 2003 America East conference title and have finished no lower than third in the last eight years with three runner-up finishes, including 2007. Cathy Parker was the individual conference champion in ‘06. The women’s swimming and diving team won the America East conference championship for the second consecutive year in 2006. Kary Goodman was named the America East Most Outstanding Swimmer in both ‘06 and ‘07 and received the 2008 Coaches Award for most points scored over four years of competition. Amy Perrault, who competed at the ‘08 Canadian Olympic Trials, was named the league’s 2008 Rookie of the Year. UNH’s Jessica Little was honored as the Rookie of the Year and the league championships’ Rookie of the Meet last season. The women’s lacrosse team made its 12th consecutive appearance in the America East tournament in 2009 and was nationally ranked every week. In ‘08, the ‘Cats received an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. The ‘Cats won the 2004 league title to advance to the NCAA tournament and they have appeared in the conference championship game seven of the last eight years. Early-season success for the 2006 men’s soccer team led to a national ranking en route

to Chris Banks earning the conference Striker of the Year and Rookie of the Year awards. The women’s volleyball team has been a perennial contender for the America East conference title. UNH won the crown in 1998, 2002 and 2003 to advance to the NCAA tournament. In 2006, four Wildcats were named to the All-Rookie Team. The women’s gymnastics team advanced to the NCAA Regionals the initial 26 years of the competition’s existence; the streak came to an end in 2008. They finished with a No. 18 national ranking in 2005 and won the 2003 EAGL championship. The women’s soccer team won a share of the 2007 America East regular-season crown and earned the No. 1 tournament seed for the first time in program history. Michelle Sheehan was named Striker of the Year while Caitlin Whelan was honored as Midfielder of the Year. Sheehan repeated as Striker of the Year in ‘08 and UNH advanced to the league tourney for a league-record eighth consecutive year. The field hockey team, led by 2008 America East Offensive Player of the Year Sarah Craigue, was the highest scoring team in the league last year, and the Wildcats finished as runner-up in both the regular-season standings and tournament. The men’s basketball team capped its most successful season in 15 years with a trip to the 2009 America East semifinals, and the ‘Cats were less than a minute away from hosting the title game.

2009 – Hockey East Champions

2009-10 UNH WOMEN’S HOCKEY

wildcat HOCKEY Patty Kazmaier Award

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. In 1999, both Nicki Luongo and Carisa Zaban were named candidates and Luongo was named a finalist. In 2000, Zaban was once again selected as a candidate and was voted as a finalist. Michelle Thornton was named one of the 10 candidates in 2001; Kira Misikowetz (‘02), Nicole Hekle (‘06), Martine Garland (‘07 & ‘08), Sam Faber (‘08) and Jenn Wakefield (‘09) have received that same distinction.

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.”

“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!”

Olympic Gold In February 1998, four former Wildcats – Karyn Bye (‘93), Colleen Coyne (‘93), Tricia Dunn (‘96) and Sue Merz (‘94) – win the first-ever Olympic gold medal in women’s ice hockey as members of Team USA. Bye (at right) served as an alternate captain on that team. (Photo courtesy of Karyn Bye)

Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award In 1998, senior co-captain Brandy Fisher won the inaugural Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award, which is presented annually to the most outstanding collegiate women’s ice hockey player. Fisher led the nation in both goals and points that season, and her marks of 42 goals and 81 points still stand as UNH single-season records. (Photo courtesy of USA Hockey)

new hampshire The University prides itself as being a Top-10 entrepreneurial campus (Forbes. com and The Princeton Review). The Whittemore School of Business and Economics was recently selected second among all business schools in a nationwide pool of business school deans.

UNH is one of the leading research schools on the East coast. A land-, sea- and space-grant university, our University engages undergraduates in the intellectual excitement of research.

The Lakes Region of New Hampshire is located to the north. The crown jewel of the region is Lake Winnipesaukee, which is one of the largest lakes in the Northeast. Countless recreational activities exist on the many lakes in the area.

UNH leads the East coast in the amount of grant money received – approximately 65 million dollars per year.

Amtrak’s Downeaster, with a station located on campus, is a great way to travel to Boston or Portland. As a passenger, you’ll enjoy miles of scenic landscape en route to your destination.

The University itself is located just minutes from the Atlantic Ocean. Historic Portsmouth Harbor, less than 10 miles from UNH, offers many shopping and fine dining opportunities, while Hampton Beach, to the south, is a popular vacation spot.
