A NEW HOME A true reflection of Penn State’s commitment to women’s athletics, the Penn State Field Hockey Complex is entering its sixth season as the home of Nittany Lion field hockey. The pitch, which is used exclusively for field hockey, features new turf and a state-of-the-art watering system. The Lions opened the new field in style in 2005, going 10-0 en route to a program record 17 straight wins. Penn State is 34-11 in five years at its new field.

Two sets of seating areas on one side of the field have room to seat up to 750 spectators, 250 more than Bigler. The field also has permanent lights that allow for night games to be played.

Charlene

MORETT

24th Season at Penn State 27th Overall

Penn State, 1979

e longest tenured coach in the Big Ten and seventh longest tenured at a single school in Division I field hockey, Charlene Morett enters her 24th season as head coach of the Penn State field hockey program. Morett boasts a remarkable resume covering her time as leader of the Nittany Lions. Over the last three years, Morett has led the Nittany Lions to a Big Ten Championship (in 2008), one year following their second appearance in the National Championship Game. Morett currently ranks fourth all-time (in Division I history) in wins with 396 and is one of just 10 DI coaches to accumulate 300 career wins. With four more wins, she will become only the fourth Division I field hockey coach in NCAA history to hit the 400-victory plateau. Morett has led the Nittany Lions to the NCAA Tournament in 20 out of her 23 years as head coach and has helped maintain Penn State’s distinction as the No. 2 ranked school in all-time NCAA Tournament appearances with 25. Despite an up-and-down 2009 season, there were a number of bright spots. e Nittany Lions beat two straight ranked teams in early October, No. 18 Ohio State (in overtime) and No. 14 Stanford in succession. Penn State went on to beat the Buckeyes for a second time in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament, becoming only the second No. 7 seed to ever win a tournament game. e Lions were also tied with No. 20 Indiana heading into halftime of the Big Ten semis, but fell just short of a berth in the championship game. In 2008, Morett led the Nittany Lions to the Big Ten Regular Season Title, their first conference championship since 2005 and fifth overall. e squad was eventually awarded an at-large berth to the NCAA Tournament where it fell to a tough Princeton squad, 2-0. Morett was also named Big Ten Coach of the Year for the fourth time. In 2007, Morett led Penn State through a memorable run to its seventh NCAA Semifinal appearance in program history and was named the NFHCA Mideast Region Coach of the Year. e milestones have been endless for Morett as four years ago, MORETT BY THE NUMBERS she became just the fourth 26 Years as a Head Coach coach in 23 Years as Head Coach at Penn State NCAA history .715 Winning Percentage at Penn State to accumulate 20 NCAA Appearances 5 NCAA Semifinals at least 350 5 Big Ten Regular Season Titles career wins, 4 Big Ten Tournament Titles and five years 50 First Team All-American Selections ago, she won 5 Big Ten Athletes of the Year her 300th 5 Big Ten Offensive Players of the Year 8 Big Ten Defensive Players of the Year game at Penn 6 Big Ten Freshmen of the Year State. 55 First Team All-Big Ten Selections

A six-time Mideast Region Coach of the Year, Morett is an excellent teacher of field hockey. Her players earn national recognition on a yearly basis, 10 of whom have been named two-time First Team All-Americans with Jen Long being the most recent. Her teams dominate the national scene, consistently ranking among the Top 10 in the national polls. In fact, Penn State was ranked in the Top 10 of the STX/NFHCA poll for 32 consecutive weeks from the first poll of the 2005 season ending with the second poll of 2008. e 1999 squad achieved a No. 1 ranking in the STX/NFHCA poll for the first time in program history. From 2005-08, Penn State finished eighth, sixth, ninth, and 11th respectively, in the final poll of the season. Under Morett’s tutelage, five of her players have been named Big Ten Athlete of the Year — Traci Anselmo, Jen Coletta, Heather Gorlaski, Tracey Larson and Kiley Kulina. Six players have been voted the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year — Natalie Berrena, Coletta, Dawn Lammey, Larson, Tara Maguire, and Allison Scola. In 2008, Long was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year for a second consecutive season, becoming the league’s eighth Defensive Player of the Year from Penn State, joining Anselmo, Gorlaski, Becca Main, Jill Martz and Jill Pearsall. Long and


HEAD COACH CHARLENE MORETT Anselmo are the only Lions to be named Defensive Player of the Year twice. Since Penn State’s entry into the Big Ten in 1992, Morett’s program has produced more First Team All-Big Ten selections, more Big Ten Defensive Players of the Year, more Big Ten Athletes of the Year and more Big Ten Freshmen of the Year than any other. Penn State’s eight Defensive Player of the Year honorees is four more than the schools with the next most. With Laura Cahill and Bethany Marvel earning All-Big Ten laurels last season, Penn State has now totaled 76 All-Big Ten selections since 1992, including 53 First Team All-Conference choices, the most of any Big Ten school since 1992. During Morett’s tenure, Penn State has produced 35 First-Team AllAmerica choices with at least one player earning the honor in 22 of the coach’s 23 seasons. Overall, Penn State has had at least one First Team AllAmerican in 24 of the last 25 years, including every year from 1975-2008. In 2007, for the first time since 2002, Penn State had two First Team AllAmericans in Long and Kiersten Wood. A number of Morett’s players - past and present - have played at an elite level with the United States program, with Larson earning a spot on the U.S. National Team for three consecutive seasons. Another former Nittany Lion, Eleanor Stone, has been on the national team for a total of seven different seasons. Seven former players have competed on the U.S. National Team, with several others playing on various other levels of national teams. Recent graduates Long and Scola were three-year members of the U.S. Under-21 National Team. Both Long and Wood trained with the U.S. National Team in Chula Vista, Calif. while Scola went on an exhibition tour of Argentina with the U-21 team. In the spring of 2007, Long and Scola represented the U.S. on the U-21 team’s tour of China. Morett attended with them as the Chef de Mission for U.S. Field Hockey. Additionally, Long and Scola, along with All-America alum Larson helped the East team capture the U.S. Open Regional Championship in the summer of 2007. Laura Kassab and current junior Jessica Longstreth were both members of the U.S. National Indoor Hockey Team as well. Scola is currently on the U.S. Development Squad after being named to the team in June of 2009. In addition, Long and current sophomore Kelsey Amy competed for team PA in USA Field Hockey’s National Championship this past June. Incoming freshman goalkeeper Kylie Licata played on the Junior National High Performance Team as well. Morett’s teams have also produced a run of success in Big Ten games that is unparalleled since Penn State joined the conference in 1992. Since that time, the Nittany Lions own the most Big Ten regular season wins, the highest Big Ten regular season and tournament winning percentage, the second-most Big Ten Tournament wins and a tie for the most Big Ten Tournament titles. e squad has enjoyed plenty of recent success as well. In 2007, after defeating Virginia for the second time in the season with a win in the first

Despite the season ending with a loss to top-ranked and undefeated North Carolina in the title game, four Nittany Lions were named NFHCA All-Americans. One year earlier in 2006, Morett led the Nittany Lions to their first appearance in the Big Ten Tournament Championship Game since 2003.

2010 SENIOR CLASS

HEAD COACH CHARLENE MORETT and Princeton in the opening two rounds played at Penn State before defeating No. 1 ranked Old Dominion, 3-2, to advance to the NCAA National Championship Game for the first time in program history. While Penn State dropped the title game, 2-0, to Wake Forest, the year went down as one of the greatest seasons in program history as four players were recognized with STX All-America honors and five earned All-Big Ten status. Morett led the 1993 squad to the university’s first outright Big Ten Championship in any sport. e team won 15 straight games, a record at the time. e most notable upset was a 2-1 victory at Old Dominion which ended the Monarchs’ 66-game win streak. Since then, Morett has led her Lions to four more regular season titles and an unprecedented four straight Big Ten Tournament crowns from 1995 through 1998. Morett’s teams have not only excelled on the field but also in the classroom. Penn State has produced 159 Academic All-Big Ten selections since 1992 and is the only school in the Big Ten to have 10 or more Academic All-Big Ten selections for the last nine consecutive seasons. Additionally, a record 16 members of the team were named to the NFHCA National Academic Squad in 2008, a then-record 14 the year before, and in the two years previous to that, a total of 12 players were named to the squad in each season. During the 2008-09 school year, the Nittany Lions were also winners of the Penn State Highest GPA Academic Award given to the team with the highest overall GPA and the “Varsity S” Women’s Team GPA honor. A 1979 graduate of Penn State, Morett was an outstanding field hockey player and the program’s only three-time First Team All-American. Captain of the undefeated 1978 team, Morett was a phenomenal scorer, netting 50 goals in four years and was the first Lion to score five goals in a game. She held that record for 21 years. After leaving Penn State, Morett continued to play field hockey at the national level and in 1982, she was named the USFHA’s Co-Athlete of the Year. A two-time Olympian, Morett played in more than 100 international matches. Morett remained in Happy Valley as a graduate assistant to train

for the 1980 Olympics. Unable to participate in the 1980 Moscow Games due to the U.S. boycott, Morett remained loyal and enthusiastic to the U.S. team, traveling all over the world in international competition in preparation for the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games, where she won a bronze medal. Morett was also awarded a Congressional Gold Medal as part of the 1980 U.S. Olympic Team when the U.S. Congress officially awarded the medals more than 27 years after the boycotted games. Also an All-America lacrosse player in Happy Valley, Morett was one of the nation’s top scorers in the sport when Penn State won its second consecutive National Championship. She also played for the 1978 and 1979 United States Women’s Lacrosse Association National Champion teams. Morett was a member of the U.S. Lacrosse team and earned Most Valuable Player at the 1979 USWLA National Championship, where the Nittany Lions defeated the University of Massachusetts. After completing her undergraduate degree in physical education, she worked for one year as a graduate assistant at PSU, helping the Lions become National Finalists in field hockey and National Champions in lacrosse. Beth Anders then tabbed Morett as her assistant in 1980 at Old Dominion, where she would stay for four years. During that time, Morett helped the Monarchs reach three straight National Title games and in the process, Anders served as a positive mentor for Morett’s future success. In 1984, Morett was named head field hockey and lacrosse coach at Boston College. She immediately lifted the Eagle field hockey program into the Top 20 and won an Eastern College Athletic Conference title in her first year. When Penn State legend Gillian Rattray retired from coaching in 1987, Morett returned to her alma mater to take over for her mentor, inheriting a program with 17 straight winning seasons and five straight NCAA Tournament appearances.

WHAT THEY ARE SAYING...

“One of Char’s best assets is her heart. It represents how much she cares about her players. She develops more than a field hockey player; she develops people. Coaching against Char is not only challenging, but fun. It’s a challenge because Char’s teams are prepared; they bring emotion and a strong game plan. Char is a fierce competitor but it’s all about the game and that makes it fun.” Old Dominion Head Coach and the All-Time Winningest Coach in NCAA History Beth Anders “Playing field hockey at Penn State and having the guidance of Char better prepared me for life after hockey. She had a profound impact on me as a person. rough field hockey and the experiences around it, she taught me how to be accountable and how to find a balance between doing your job as a Penn State student-athlete well, while still being able to enjoy the other aspects of college life.” Former Penn State All-American Jamie Smith “e best decision I have ever made was the decision to attend Penn State and become a part of the field hockey team. I can't thank Char enough for giving me that opportunity. Char always knew how to push me to be my best. She has the ability to push her athletes to compete against each other at practice in the most positive and healthy way. We competed so fiercly at practice that competing in games came easy. As a Division I college coach, I have learned that this is one of the most important but, most difficult things to do.” Former All-American and current Sacred Heart Head Coach Christine Blais

“Char gives unwavering support to her players that is motivated by a passion for the traditions of field hockey. As her athlete, I learned to win and to do so with unrelenting class and honor for the Blue and White. As a fellow coach now, Char has always been my biggest supporter and I cherish her opinion and guidance. I continually look to mirror her ways with my own program and hope she knows that imitation is the greatest form of flattery.” Former All-American and current Quinnipiac Head Coach Becca Main (Kohli)

ZINKAVICH Fifth Season

Penn State, 2003

Annie Zinkavich enters her fifth season as an assistant coach at Penn State. A former goalkeeper with the Nittany Lions, she works primarily with the goalkeepers and also assists in the day-to-day operations of the field hockey program. Working with first-time starter Ali Meves last season, Zinkavich helped aid the junior goalkeeper to some stellar efforts, highlighted by an 11-save performance against No. 18 Ohio State to spearhead the Lions to a thrilling 2-1 overtime victory on the Big Ten Network. She followed that performance with six huge saves vs. No. 14 Stanford in a second straight win. Meves was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week and Penn State StudentAthlete of the Week following her effort against the Buckeyes while also cracking the Big Ten All-Tournament Team after leading the Nittany Lions into the conference semifinals. is past summer, Zinkavich served as assistant cocach for the gold medal winning Pennsylvania Junior High Performance squad. In 2009, Penn State recorded nine shutouts thanks in large part to Zinkavich’s work with the goalies. e duo of Jen Beaumont and Meves recorded a 82.5 save percentage that was tops in the nation while its 1.05 goals against average was fourth best nationally and shutouts per game (0.45) was second. e Nittany Lion defense and goalkeeping dominated the conference, coming in first in fewest goals allowed, GAA, and shutouts. e team’s 21 goals allowed for the year was the fewest since the 1999 squad only allowed 20. Beaumont was also named a First Team All-Conference Performer as well as earning First Team All-Region and Second Team AllAmerica status. In 2007, Zinkavich’s work helped the Nittany Lions record 10 shutouts, including nine by Beaumont and two big shutouts in the NCAA Tournament against a pair of top five teams. Beaumont also ranked among that nation’s leaders in goals against average and save percentage while being named All-Region for the second straight season. ree years ago, Beaumont, then a first-year starter, had an outstanding year between the pipes for the Lions as she was named First Team All-Region and a Second Team All-American while finishing fifth in the country and tops in the Big Ten in goals against average.

Zinkavich was a four-year letterwinner for the Nittany Lions from 20002003. She recorded eight shutouts in 2002 to anchor the defense of the squad that advanced to the NCAA National Championship game. In 2002, she ranked 16th nationally in goals against average with 1.41 per game. She earned Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week honors six times in her career, including three in 2001. In 2002, Zinkavich set a Bigler Field record for saves in a game with 10 in a 2-1 upset victory over No. 6 North Carolina. She was named to three consecutive All-Mideast teams, garnering first team honors in 2001 and 2003 and second team honors in 2002. She started 85 out of the 87 games she played in her career. She had 22 shutouts in her career, which ranks sixth all-time at Penn State. Prior to returning to her alma mater, Zinkavich served for two years as the graduate assistant coach at Bucknell, also working with the goalies. Under her tutelage, Bucknell’s senior keeper Liz Jordan was named the Patriot League Goalkeeper of the Year and the East Coast Athletic Conference Goalkeeper of the Year. Jordan was also a Second Team All-Mideast Region selection. Zinkavich is currently finalizing her master’s degree in college student personnel from Bucknell University. She plays club field hockey for Red Rose and helped the team win the Club Cup in Virginia Beach in April of 2006, 2007, and 2008. She also received her Level II Coaching Accreditation in January.

SEASON OUTLOOK Q&A WITH COACH MORETT

Q: Talk about the incoming freshmen class as a whole. Morett: As a whole, I think it’s a very solid class from the forward line players through the midfield, into the defensive backfield, all the way back to the goalkeeping position. We have a solid group of freshmen. Lauren Purvis and Brittany Grzywacz really highlight that incoming class because they’re two who were on the U.S. Under 19 team that went to Argentina this past spring. Fortunately, I was one of the coaches who went with them. I had the chance to see - up close - their potential playing at the next level instead of the high school leagues. ey were both very impressive in the way they played and the way they were able to contribute to the team’s success. Q: Bring us position by position. Let’s start with the goalkeepers. Morett: ere’s a lot of talent at goalkeeper. I think that was one of our question marks last year, the goalkeeping aspect and also the forward line play. We were inexperienced in those two areas, which doesn’t bode well for success. is year, we obviously have Ayla Halus and Ali Meves who are returning. Both have significant experience. Ali played in more games last year than Ayla, but Ayla got a lot of experience playing in the spring when Ali got hurt. So I would say they’re coming in neck-and-neck into the preseason. Kylie Licata is an incoming freshman who will redshirt. Q: How about the defenders? Morett: We did lose a significant amount at defense. I would say more from the center of our field into the backfield. We lost the leadership of Laura Cahill back there. She pretty much directed the defense. We feel good; we’ve made a position change with Daneen Zug. We took her out of the midfield and put her into the backfield last spring. She showed a lot of poise out there, 10

making some good decisions [while showing] some good communication skills. So we’re hoping Daneen will be the quarterback of the defensive backfield. We have some returning athletes who can vie for their starting positions. en you have to throw the freshmen in the mix; they’re good athletes as well. Q: Midfielders? Morett: Leading into our midfield area, we have Jessica Longstreth, who is very dynamic with her speed. We think we have a couple incoming freshmen who can match her speed. If we can get more of our speedy players in the midfield, it will create a lot of difficulty for the opposition. Q: And finally, the forwards. Morett: We have Kelsey Amy returning at the forward line. Casey McCartin saw some time at forward as well. We floated Jenny Purvis up there [along with] Natalie Buttinger. ere are also some incoming kids – Whitney Reddig and Lauren Purvis – who should really spot some time on the line. Q: How would you assess the team’s overall season outlook? Morett: I think last year, we just had some difficulty scoring. We had a lot of close games, but couldn’t find the goal. Now that Kelsey [Amy] played High Performance for the Pennsylvania senior team this year, that gave her a lot of confidence. Also, with Lauren Purvis coming in with her Under 19 experience, she can be dangerous around the goal cage. Also, Brittany Grzywacz as a corner shooter is someone who has a lot of tools as a freshman, with the drag flick and the straight shot. I think our corner execution will be much more consistent and much more dangerous, which we hope will lead to more goals.

2009 SEASON REVIEW & HIGHLIGHTS

2010 SENIOR CLASS

NITTANY LIONS CONCLUDE UP-AND-DOWN SEASON WITH MEMORABLE EFFORT AT BIG TEN TOURNAMENT

• Despite struggling with a 6-12 record heading into November’s Big Ten Tournament, the Penn State field hockey team ended on a positive note by beating No. 2 seed Ohio State for the second time to advance to the conference semifinals. • e Lions ended up falling to Indiana in the semis, but the spirited effort proved to the Big Ten that Penn State is a force to be reckoned with. • Penn State become only the second No. 7 seed in Big Ten history to win a game in the tournament since the conference expanded to seven teams in 2000. • e Nittany Lions did finish with a solid RPI (ratings percentage index) of 20, rated as the fourth-best Big Ten squad only behind NCAA Tournament participants Michigan State, Ohio State and Indiana. • After starting the season 2-8, the squad did rebound down the stretch, winning five of its final 10 games. Included in the wins was a 2-1 overtime thriller over No. 18 Ohio State, a 3-1 triumph over No. 14 Stanford and the Big Ten Tournament win over the Buckeyes.

IMPRESSIVE OPPONENTS

• Penn State has consistently played some of the top teams in the country, which was no different in 2009 as the Nittany Lions faced the second toughest schedule in the country. • Incredibly, all but one opponent (Pacific) in 2009 was either nationally ranked or received votes when Penn State faced them. • Old Dominion (16), Virginia (6), Connecticut (5), Maryland (1), Princeton (7), Ohio State (18), Stanford (14), Northwestern (18), Indiana (20) and Michigan State (8) were all ranked on game day vs. the Lions. • Meanwhile, Lock Haven, American, Lafayette, West Chester, Michigan, Bucknell and Iowa received votes. • Penn State's seven wins came against teams with great records as well Lock Haven (18-5), Stanford (17-5), Lafayette (14-6), Ohio State twice (137), Bucknell (12-7) and Pacific (5-12) for an overall mark of 92-49 (.652).

THERE’S A FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING

• Many Penn State players enjoyed memorable “firsts” in 2009. • Most notably, five Nittany Lions - Hannah Allison, Kelsey Amy, Casey McCartin, Jenny Purvis, Alex Schlener - scored their first-career goals. • Goalie Ali Meves had her first-career double digit save performance at Princeton (and had her second on Friday, Oct. 2 vs. Ohio State). • Fellow goalkeeper Ayla Halus picked up her first-career win, which was a shutout vs. West Chester (Sept. 20). • Kristen Schaefer recorded her first-career point against Stanford (Oct. 5), an assist on Amy's go-ahead goal off a penalty corner.

“FRESH” BUNCH LEADING THE WAY

• Among the scoring leaders in 2009 was a pair of freshmen, Kelsey Amy and (redshirt freshman) Hannah Allison, who led the squad in goals scored. Amy also had the most points with 18 (8g, 2a) while Allison’s five goals were tied for second most and 12 points were tied for third. • Together, the pair finished among the highest-scoring freshman pairs in program history (when looking at ranking within its team). • e second-best freshman pair this century was in 2004 when Shaun Banta was third on the squad (18 pts: 7g, 4a) and Kiersten Wood was fifth (11 pts: 3g, 5a). Sophomore Annelise Legel was fourth with 13 (6g, 1a). • After not scoring in the first 10 games of her career, Amy racked up all of her team-leading 18 points over the final 10 games. She racked up at least one point in seven of those contests. • It all started with her first-career goal on Oct. 2, which was the overtime game-winner against Ohio State. • Jessica Longstreth was tied for third in points (12) and tied for second in goals (5) meaning the top three goal-scorers and three of the top four point-getters in 2009 were either freshmen or sophomores. • Amy and Longstreth were named NFHCA All-Mideast Region First Team honorees.

MEVES’ “DOUBLE TRIFECTA”

• Goalkeeper Ali Meves enjoyed a strong first season of starting duty which saw 100 as a significant number. • Meves finished the season with 108 saves to lead the Big Ten, marking the first time that a Penn State goalie reached triple digits since current assistant coach Annie Zinkavich had 137 in 2003. • It happened even with Ayla Halus starting twice. It was the first time since 2000 that two Lion goalies played 100 or more minutes while it also saw one reach 100 saves. Zinkavich was part of the 2000 scenario as well.

Courtney Plaster-Strange made a move to set up an open shot, which was eventually tipped by Kaylee Pohlmeyer past Penn State goalkeeper Ali Meves to make it 2-1. e Nittany Lions continued their pressure and tied the score again at the 44:45 mark off a penalty corner. Allison took the shot off a Kristen Schaefer stick-stop, beating Pohlmeyer with a rocket for her second goal in as many games. Dudek also extended her team-high assist total to five on the play. e Wildcats scored the go-ahead and eventual game-winning goal at 52:12 when Chelsea Armstrong corralled a loose ball off a broken play in the circle and fired it just inside the right post to finish an impressive individual effort. e teams played even the rest of the way with Penn State's best chance coming late. With just over two minutes remaining and down by one, a high Kelsey Amy shot on goal hit a Northwestern defender. e officials blew the play dead, but Penn State argued for a penalty stroke to no avail. e Nittany Lions were subsequently handed two yellow cards in a nine second span to put them down two players the rest of the game. e first half was up and down with no one finding the back of the cage until the Wildcats got on the board at 30:20 off a penalty corner.

It was also Penn State's quickest goal since Sept. 15, 2006, when Carey Maser scored 2:24 into the game against Lafayette. A sensational individual effort from Longstreth made it 2-0 only 1:38 later. After making a move at the top of the circle, her shot rifled past Atieh for her team-leading fifth goal of the season. After calling a timeout, Bucknell regrouped and hung tough the rest of the way. Just seconds after entering the game, Kelly Bruvick cut Penn State's lead in half when she came in strong from the right side. Her subsequent low shot got past Nittany Lions' goalkeeper Ali Meves to make it 2-1 at 23:18. Both teams had a number of quality chances the rest of the way, but Atieh and 36

2007 NATIONAL FINALIST TEAM RECAPS NCAA FIRST ROUND, Nov. 10, 2007

NCAA SEMIFINALS, Nov. 16, 2007

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - In the game featuring Penn State and Virginia on August 26 in the first weekend of the season, Virginia scored a first half goal and led 1-0 at halftime before Penn State rallied with three unanswered secondhalf goals for a 3-1 victory. In another matchup with the Cavaliers in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, the game was very similar to the first meeting as Penn State overcame a 1-0 halftime deficit with three second half goals. e Nittany Lions held on for a narrow 3-2 victory at the Maryland Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex. e win moved the Nittany Lions into the quarterfinal round of the NCAA Tournament for the second straight year and for the second straight year they moved on to face the host Terrapins in the second round. Penn State's top three goal scorers led the way. Britney Long scored her team-leading 13th goal to tie the score early in the second half. Mallory Weisen scored her 10th goal to give the Nittany Lions the 2-1 lead while Shaun Banta netted her seventh to give the Nittany Lions what would prove to be a muchneeded insurance goal.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Mallory Weisen scored a first half goal in the 14th minute and Shaun Banta added a late goal with just over 10 minutes to play in the second half and the Penn State defense once again stifled one of the country's top ranked teams as the Nittany Lions knocked off No. 2 Wake Forest 2-0 in the National Semifinals, five days after knocking off third-ranked Maryland on the same field. With the win, Penn State moved on to its second NCAA Championship Game appearance in program history. In the 15th minute, Penn State was awarded the first penalty corner of the game. Weisen's shot went off the foot of a Wake Forest defender and deflected into the cage to give the Nittany Lions a 1-0 lead at the 14:03 mark. Jen Long and Allison Scola were credited with assists on the play. e Nittany Lions scored an insurance goal at the 59:28 mark as Banta did some nifty dribbling to free herself for a shot, which she finished unassisted to make it 2-0.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Britney Long scored a first half goal in the 22nd minute and the Penn State defense played its best game of the year as Penn State stunned two-time defending national champion Maryland 1-0 on its home field in the NCAA Quarterfinals to advance to the NCAA Semifinal round. e Nittany Lions ended up returning to College Park for its seventh NCAA Semifinal in school history and its 10th all-time trip to a semifinal, counting the AIAW as well. Penn State converted on an opportunity at the 21:54 mark to take a 1-0 lead. e Lions were awarded a free hit from just outside the circle on the right side of the cage. Shaun Banta took the hit and sent a hard ball into the circle, where Long was waiting on the weak-side post to tip in the pass for her 14th goal of the year and her second of the NCAA Tournament. e Terps kept the ball on Penn State's side of the field for the vast majority of the final 10 minutes of the second half, but what shots they were able to get off were either saved by Beaumont or went wide. Beaumont made nine saves in an outstanding effort in the cage.

NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP, Nov. 18, 2007 NORTH CAROLNIA 3, PENN STATE 0

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - For the third straight NCAA Tournament game, the Penn State defense did an excellent job of limiting its opponent's scoring chances by cutting off passes and blocking shots against one of the seeded teams in the NCAA Tournament. In the first two games, the Nittany Lions were able to shut out their seeded opponent despite being outshot. In this game, however, despite another valiant effort, North Carolina took advantage of three of its scoring opportunities which proved to be the difference. e Tar Heels got on the board just 3:10 into the contest as some sharp passing led to an open shot and the goal. From just inside the top of the circle, the ball was passed by Jesse Gey to the left and Katelyn Falgowski one-timed a hard shot into the cage. A North Carolina shot that was redirected off the foot of a Penn State defender just over eight minutes into the second half made it 2-0. Penn State's best scoring chance came with just over 20 minutes remaining in the second half on a fast break. Britney Long sent the ball into the circle from the right side of the endline and it got all the way through to an open Bethany Marvel on the left side, but she was unable to get the shot off right away, and UNC keeper Brianna O'Donnell made the save. Danielle Forward scored the Tar Heels’ third goal at the 6:44 mark to conclude the scoring.

HOME HIGHLIGHTS

THE STREAK Between 1979-83, Nittany Lion teams played 32 straight home games without a loss.

THE STREAK (2) Between 1984-89, Nittany Lion teams won 19 straight home games.

THE STREAK (3) Between 1990-92, Nittany Lion teams won 25 straight home games. There were no ties during that streak to go along with 17 shutouts.

THE STREAK (4) Nittany Lion teams won 25 straight home games, tying the school record. That streak spanned 1996-99.

PERFECTION The 1991 squad completed the home season with a 13-0-0 record, establishing the high victory mark for home wins in a season.

A MONTH OF ZEROES Before allowing a goal to Connecticut in the last regular-season game on Nov. 3, 1991, the Nittany Lions played more than a month of shutout field hockey at Bigler Field.

SOME BIG GUNS During that span, Penn State scored 32 unanswered goals and had a final scoring advantage of 58-3 over opposing teams. 100 WINS The 1987 team won the 100th home game in the program’s history, 4-1 over Maryland on

Sept. 29, 1987.

200 WINS The Nittany Lions won the program’s 200th home game in its 36th season with a 1-0 upset victory over North Carolina on Sept. 5, 1999.

THE STREAK (5) Over portions of the 2001 and 2002 seasons the Nittany Lions put together a 12-game home winning streak, its longest since beginning play at Bigler Field in 1996.

SPRINGBOARD TO THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME The Nittany Lions used an 10-1 home mark in 2002, which included first and second round NCAA Tournament wins as a springboard to their first-ever NCAA Championship Game appearance in 2002. Penn State outscored its opponents 34-10 over nine home contests.

AWESOME AT HOME In the first season at the brand-new Penn State Field Hockey Complex (2005), the Nittany Lions compiled a 10-0 record en route to a school record tying (and most in a single-season) 17game win streak, outscoring their opponents by a 39-7 mark. The Nittany Lions now have a fouryear record of 29-8 at their new home.

DOMINANT HOME DEFENSE The 2008 defense held its opponent scoreless in the final 223:34 at home, and in the process shut out Virginia, Indiana, and Michigan. The squad looks to continue the shutout streak early in 2009.

U.S. NATIONAL TEAMS & OLYMPIC ATHLETES

2010 SENIOR CLASS

ree former Nittany Lions have competed in the Olympics. In 1980, Chris Larson (below right) and current Penn State Head Coach Charlene Morett (left) qualified for the Olympic Team that was set to compete in Moscow. e U.S. did not compete in those games due to the boycott, but Morett and Larson made the team again four years later in Los Angeles and won the bronze medal. at year, Brenda Stauffer (center) also competed for the United States, giving that squad three former Penn State players on its experience. Says Morett of her experience, “Penn State prepared me to play at the highest level. My goal is to prepare my current players for similar challenges.”

PENN STATERS ON U.S. NATIONAL TEAM

In addition to the three Olympians, Penn State also has a rich history of providing players for the main U.S. National Team as well as other national teams. Recently graduated All-Americans Jen Long and Allison Scola were the latest members as both were part of the U.S. Under-21 National Team. Last July, Scola was also named to the U.S. Development Squad.
