NEW HAMPSHIRE Nestled in New Hampshireâ€™s seacoast region, the UNH campus offers a pleasing mix of classic and modern buldings and college greens that gradually gives way to 2,600 acres of woods, fields, and farms.
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.
Students who choose UNH often do so because of the seemingly endless options offered through an accessible system of schools and colleges. UNH offers literally thousands of courses in more than 100 majors. UNH is one of the leading research schools on the East coast. A land-, sea- and space grant university, our University engages under graduates in the intellectual excitement of research.
The Wildcat sculpture, commissioned by the UNH alumni association, was created by Matthew Grey Palmer and is displayed on Main Street in front of the Whittemore Center and Memorial Field.

THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE The University of New Hampshire 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, New Hampshire retains the look and feel of a New England liberal arts college with a faculty dedicated to teaching.
Athletic Department Mission New Hampshire student-athletes participate in 20 menâ€™s and womenâ€™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 New Hampshire 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. Holloway Commons 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.
History One of the most prestigious institutions in the Northeast, the University of New Hampshire has long been recognized as a leader in education and research. Founded in 1866 as the New Hampshire College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts, New Hampshire 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, New Hampshire 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.
Mission Statement The mission of the intercollegiate athletics program at the University of New Hampshire 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 role 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.

ADMINISTRATION Dr. Mark Huddleston
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.

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. The women’s gymnastics team won its first-ever EAGL title in 2003, when the event was hosted at the Whitt, and has reached the NCAA Regionals 10 times in Scarano’s 11 years at the helm. The volleyball team won an America East crown in 2002 and 2003 and went on to the NCAA tournament in those same seasons. The field hockey team qualified for the NCAAs in 2000, while women’s lacrosse made the NCAA tournament in 2004 and 2008. Additionally, 24 coaches have won 61 Coach of the Year awards during Scarano’s tenure. There have been over $9 million in capitol improvements since Scarano’s hiring in the summer of 2000. Most recently, as part of a $650,000 renovation project in the summer of 2011, the field turf at Bremner Field was replaced with a new state-of-the-art surface used by many varsity teams and for student recreational activities. In the fall of 2008, the Paul Sweet Oval renovation was completed to include new surfaces, lighting, painting, infrastructure upgrades and the replacement of windows that existed in the original architecture. The total cost of the project exceeded $500,000. In the summer of 2007, the Cowell Stadium grass field was replaced with a $1 million Field Turf synthetic surface. Additionally in 2007, a complete renovation of Lundholm Gymnasium was undertaken. The $600,000 renovation included a new state-of-the-art bleacher system, new scoreboards, competition baskets and other aesthetic enhancements. In 2007, Scarano was named the All-American Football Foundation Athletic Director of the Year for FCS football in the Northeast region. Scarano was also awarded the National Association of College Directors of Athletics (NACDA) AD of the Year for the FCS. Scarano also been an active member in the leadership of UNH’s three major conferences and was the chair of the executive committees for Atlantic 10 football, Hockey East and America East from 2003 to 2007. He also served as chair of the NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Committee in 2005-06 and 2006-07 and is currently on the America East Executive Council. Scarano held the position of Athletics Director at Colorado College from July 1996 through June 2000. During his tenure, Colorado College was ranked among the top 20 Division III programs in the Sears Cup national standings and produced several All-Americans, all-academic award winners and NCAA post-graduate scholarship recipients. Prior to his stay in Colorado Springs, Scarano worked for 13 years at Colgate University, where he served as assistant director of athletics, director of physical education, associate director, and senior associate director. Scarano, a native of Pittsburgh, Pa., is a 1978 graduate of Penn State University, where he started his athletic career as assistant ticket manager and the athletics events manager from 1980-83. Scarano holds a Master’s Degree in Environmental History from Colgate. He and his wife, Cydney, have three children, with daughter, Lynden, and son, Kyle, currently enrolled at UNH, while daughter, Corey, is a junior at Oyster River High School.

COACHING STAFF Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson enters his 17th season as the head coach of the University of New Hampshire women’s soccer program. A 1977 graduate of the University of Maine-Presque Isle, Jackson was named the America East Coach of the Year in 2002 and 1998, and led a staff that garnered America East Coaching Staff of the Year honors in 2007. In 16 years, Jackson has compiled a 121-158-29 overall record, including a 40-26-8 record in conference play for a .595 winning percentage, coached five of the program’s top seven leading point scorers and the only All-America First Team selection – goalkeeper Maja Hansen – in UNH history. He has also had 13 America East All-Conference First Team honorees, as well as three players named to the North Atlantic Conference All-Conference First Team, a Goalkeeper of the Year award winner (Kristen Ouellette, 2002), three Striker of the Year recipients (Chiara Best, 2004 and Michelle Sheehan, 2007 and 2008) and a Midfielder of the Year honoree (Caitlin Whelan, 2007). Jackson, who has made 13 tournament appearances with the ‘Cats, led UNH to the title game in 1998 and 2007, as well as semifinal appearances in 1995, 1996, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006. He also led the ‘Cats to America East tournament appearances in 2000, 2008, 2009 and 2010. Last season, Jackson and the Wildcats qualified for the tournament for the 10th straight season – the longest active streak in the conference. Despite playing without home field advantage against Albany in the quarterfinals, the ‘Cats managed to climb back within a goal on a tally by Monique Lamotte late in the 50th minute, but could not net the equalizer and fell by a 2-1 decision. In 2009, the Wildcats finished at 4-14-1 overall but 3-5 in conference play to earn a spot in the quarterfinals of the America East Tournament, where UNH gave rival Maine a scare before falling 2-1 in overtime. In 2008, Jackson steered the ‘Cats to a 6-11-1 overall record, but a 5-3-0 conference mark that earned UNH the No. 3 seed in the America East tournament, where it suffered a 1-0 loss to Binghamton in the quarterfinal round. Jackson put together what may have been his most impressive year while at the helm for the Wildcats in 2007. He led his team to an 11-7-2 regular season record, good for a .632 winning percentage. While the 11 victories tied the second highest win total in a single season, which he had already done twice (1998, 2004), the winning percentage was Jackson’s highest during his career in Durham. His 6-1-1 record in the conference garnered a share of the Wildcats’ second ever America East regular season title, which also gave them their first America East tournament No. 1 seed in program history. For the sixth consecutive year, the Wildcats made it as far as the semifinal round. Jackson surpassed that, however, guiding the ‘Cats to the championship game for the second time in school history – the first time as a No. 1 seed and host of the title game. UNH advanced to the semifinals of the America East Championships in 2006 and finished 6-11-1 overall with seven shutouts. Two years prior, Jackson led the Wildcats (11-8-2 overall) to their first America East regular-season title as UNH shared the crown with a 6-3-0 conference record. In 2002, Jackson guided UNH to a second-place finish in the conference with a 5-2-1 record. The Wildcats reached double digits in wins (10-7-1 overall) and tied the school record for shutouts by blanking the opposition nine times. Jackson was honored as the conference’s Coach of the Year in 1998 after leading the ‘Cats to a third seed in the league tournament with a 7-2-0 America East record. UNH advanced to the conference championship game and finished that season with an 11-9-0 mark. Before assuming the head coaching position at UNH, Jackson served as an assistant coach at the University of Connecticut from 1990-94. During his tenure with the Huskies, UConn qualified for the NCAA tournament five consecutive seasons. In his last season at UConn, the team advanced to the NCAA semifinals. They advanced to the championship game in 1990 and made quarterfinal appearances in 1991 and 1993. The Huskies produced seven NCAA Division I All-America selections, 14 All-New England and 12 All-Regional players, as well as one Academic All-American in Jackson’s five years of service. Prior to joining the UConn coaching staff, Jackson served as the girls varsity soccer coach, as well as special education teacher at East Hampton (Conn.) High School from 1986-89. He helped produce the school’s first-ever All-State player during his rookie season. In his second year at the helm, the team qualified for its first-ever tournament and produced another All-State selection. Jackson began his coaching career with the boys’ soccer program at Waterford (Conn.) High School (1981-85). He directed the team to the state tournament four times, including three conference championships. In 1982, his team advanced to the state final and generated the school’s first-ever All-America selection. Jackson has also been involved in the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association’s Olympic Development Program, as well as with the Under-15 through Under-19 State teams. He has also been involved in various soccer camps throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts. In addition to his coaching background, Jackson also possesses several years of playing experience. He was a member of the varsity soccer program at the University of Maine-Presque Isle and played for the Waterford Soccer Club, an amateur men’s team. Jackson received his Bachelor’s Degree in Behavioral Science from Maine-Presque Isle in 1977 and attained his Master’s Degree in Education from the University of Connecticut in 1986. As a member of the National Soccer Coaches Association, Jackson holds an Advanced National Diploma. He also earned a ‘B’ coaching license from the United States Soccer Federation. Jackson is a native of New London, Conn., and resides in Lee (N.H.) with his wife Cate.

Athletic excellence is one-half of the formula for success in the collegiate experience for University of New Hampshire women’s soccer players. The primary measure of achievement is the student-athlete’s success in the classroom. For the 1998-99 and 1999-2000 academic years, UNH was awarded the America East Academic Cup for recording the highest GPA in the conference. In both the Fall of 2004 and 2006 and Winter/Spring 2005 semesters, UNH placed the highest number of student-athletes on the America East Honor Roll. New Hampshire also boasts one of the top graduation rates in the country. UNH is dedicated to enhancing the student-athlete’s ability to achieve academic excellence. Realizing the time commitment the players give to the school, the University administers a comprehensive program of academic support services that is available to Wildcat women’s soccer players and all other student-athletes. This program includes the monitoring of academic progress and providing tutorial services, as well as interacting with the academic advisors within the various colleges. Cathy Leach is entering her eighth year as an assistant of academic support and the primary contact for women’s soccer.
Strength And Conditioning Coach
John Ciani enters his sixth season as an associate director of strength and conditioning at the University; he had held the position of UNH strength and conditioning assistant coach for four years. Ciani’s 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. Ciani came to UNH from the University of North Dakota, where he worked under Paul Chapman, the Wildcats’ current director of strength and conditioning, as an assistant with the men’s ice hockey, football, men’s and women’s swimming, men’s basketball and baseball teams. The Jerry Azumah Performance Center opened its doors in the summer of 2003 to UNH student-athletes. A monetary donation by Azumah, a now-retired cornerback of the Chicago Bears of the NFL who was a 2004 Pro Bowl selection and 1999 recipient of the Walter Payton Award (top football player in Div. I-AA), allowed the UNH athletic department to overhaul its existing strength and conditioning center. The renovated Center features 5,000 pounds of Olympic weights, 7,000 pounds of dumbbells, 14 Power lift platform stations, 12 Hammer strength machines and an additional 15,000 pounds of weights.

New Hampshire 2011 Women’s Soccer
2011 OUTLOOK The University of New Hampshire women’s soccer team, which extended its all-time league record streak of consecutive America East Championship tournament appearances to 10 last season, has been the epitome of consistency over the past decade. Now, the program is primed to take the next step in 2011 and elevate consistent play into top-level success. With a strong defensive core anchored by solid goaltending, the veteran leadership of 18 returning letterwinners in addition to seven promising newcomers, head coach Michael Jackson and his staff fields a team that has all the makings of a title contender. Despite the graduation of leading goal scorer Carole LeBlanc (4), the Wildcats return 73 percent (49 of 67 points) of their offense, including the two top leading point scorers in Chelsea Kuss and Monique Lamotte. Kuss enjoyed an impressive first season as a sophomore transfer, pacing the team with 12 points and six assists en route to earning America East All-Conference Second Team honors. Lamotte, who also earned second team accolades, will once again be counted on to shoulder a bulk of the scoring after she registered eight points on a team-high 40 shots last season. The junior midfielder was even more dangerous in postseason play as she scored the team’s lone goal in a tight 2-1 loss at Albany in the quarterfinals and was selected to the America East All-Championship Team for her efforts. Senior co-captain Stephanie Gilkenson, who registered six points last season, as well as fellow senior Alli Rozelle, will both be counted on for experience and balance in the midfield. Junior Allie Coppenrath, in addition to sophomore Kristi Zarilli, will provide more midfield depth with Elizabeth Curry and Colleen Murray. The 5-foot-5-inch Curry returns for her second stint at New Hampshire as a sophomore transfer from Western Washington. In Curry’s lone season at UNH as a freshman in 2008, the Washington native appeared in 13 contests including eight starts. The 5-foot-3-inch Murray lettered in soccer at Bedford High School and is coming off a senior campaign in which she took home first-team all-state honors. Murray, who was a second-team all-state selection, claimed team MVP honors as a junior and led the team in scoring during her sophomore, junior and senior campaigns. Assisting Kuss up front will be a trio of versatile attackers as seniors Alyssa Michel and Brooke Duchaney, as well as junior Drea Nogueira, make up one of the strongest front lines in the conference. Michel, who will serve as a cocaptain this fall, ranked second on the team in assists last season with three helpers, while Duchaney finished second on the team with two game-winning goals. Nogueira chipped in three tallies en route to eight points for a breakout season in 2010 and will look to build on that mark for an even better junior campaign. Newcomers Meghan Ledwith, Jenna Shaddock and Brianna Spitler will also see time at the forward position this season. The 5-9 Ledwith was a four-year letterwinner at Villa Joseph Marie High School in Yardley, Pa., where she totaled 53 goals and 28 assists in her career. Shaddock, a native of Nova Scotia, spent last year in England as a member of the Chelsea Ladies FC reserves and led the club with 17 goals. The 5-foot-6-inch Spitler was a four-year letterwinner at Montoursville High School in Pennsylvania, pacing her team to a state championship in 2008 as well as a pair of Heartland League titles in 2007 and 2010. The ‘Cats bring back five players from last years backline, including senior co-captain Kelly Mooney, who will once again anchor a defense that ranked fourth in the conference in shutouts (4), fifth in goals against average (1.28) and sixth in goals allowed per game (1.35) last season. Mooney, an America East All-Conference First Team selection, started all 20 games and notched the first point of her career with an assist at Albany in the quarterfinals of the conference tournament. Seniors Jordyn Krall and Taylor Finley, along with junior Kelly Spencer, will join Mooney as the core of the defensive unit in 2011. Krall started 17 contests last fall and helped on the offensive end with a pair of goals. Spencer and Finley will be counted on for veteran presence in the back after the duo started a combined 25 games last season. Sophomore Kelsi O’Neil, who saw a good amount of playing time as a rookie, and senior Jill Brown will continue to add depth on defense with the help of three rookies. Freshmen Hannah Blondin and Jordan Logue will look to make an immediate impact to the backline in their first go-around with the club. The 5-6 Blondin was a four-year letterwinner at East Hampton High School, where she was an All-Conference selection from 2008-10 and was named a Scholar-Athlete as a senior. The 5-7 Logue was a four-year letterwinner at Bishop Feehan High School, where she captained the squad as a senior and helped her program establish a 72-8-8 record with 39 shutouts during her career. The Wildcats are filled with plenty of promising talent at the goalkeeper position, starting with sophomore Erica Correa, who played every minute of every game as a rookie last season. Correa, who was named to the America East All-Rookie Team, now has some experience under her belt and is poised for a strong second season after she led the conference in saves (113) and ranked third in both save percentage (.807) and shutouts (4) in 2010. Juniors Sarah Dobush and Erin Jackson will serve as backup netminders to Correa and will add some veteran experience between the pipes. With a talented blend of experienced returnees and promising young players, the Wildcats are set to take the next step in 2011 and not only extend their record America East tournament appearance streak to 11 games, but go the distance in the process, capture a conference crown and qualify for the NCAA tournament.

New Hampshire 2011 Women’s Soccer
2010 YEAR IN REVIEW The University of New Hampshire women’s soccer
team continued its impressive run of consecutive America East Championship tournament appearances in 2010, extending the league’s all-time streak to 10 straight seasons after earning the No. 5 seed in last year’s tournament with a 4-3-1 conference record. Despite the extensive streak, the Wildcats bowed out in the quarterfinals for the third time in as many seasons with a 2-1 loss at Albany. After bringing back 54 percent of their offense from 2009, the Wildcats possessed one of the strongest attacks in the conference and more than lived up to the billing, finishing near the top of the league in several offensive categories. Led by a balanced set up front, UNH finished the 2010 campaign ranked second in points (72), goals (24) and assists (24), trailing only Boston University in every group. Not to be outdone on the offensive end, the Wildcat defense also enjoyed a bright spot in goal as UNH netminder Erica Correa topped the conference in saves with 113 stops and finished third in save percentage (.807). With the clutch ability to capture tight games, the Wildcats won five contests by a one-goal decision and ended the season 8-8-4 overall. For the second-straight year, the Wildcats opened the season against Rhode Island and battled the Rams to a gritty 1-1 tie in a game featuring 110 minutes of close play. From there, the Wildcats hit the road for the next three contests including a pair of matches at the TD Bank Vermont Classic in Burlington. UNH opened the classic in grand fashion, breaking into the win column with a 2-1 victory over La Salle on a goal in the 85th minute before ending with another 1-1 tie against Rider. The Wildcats finished the road swing with a decisive 3-1 victory at Holy Cross to remain unbeaten in the young season. N e w Hampshire then returned home to host Harvard and was edged out by the Crimson, 2-0, for the first of four straight losses. The Wildcats suffered their first road loss at UMass, finally falling in a double overtime contest by the score of 2-1, before heading home for a 3-0 loss to Siena and then falling at Northeastern by a 3-1 margin. The ‘Cats bounced back with a pair of big 1-0 shutouts at home, first taking care of visiting Bryant and then repeating the task against intrastate rival Dartmouth.
Boston University then welcomed in UNH to mark the start of America East play but the Wildcats could not find the back of the net, falling 2-0 before heading down to the Ocean State for a 1-1 tie at Brown in the final non-conference game of the season. UMBC arrived in Durham looking for just its third win all-time against the Wildcats, but the home side took care off business and shut down the Retrievers, 2-0, to pull even in conference action. After a 2-1 loss at Albany, UNH reeled off three straight victories, starting with a 1-0 shutout at Maine. The Wildcats returned back to the Granite State for a 2-1 victory over Stony Brook and then pulled off a thrilling 3-2 overtime win against Vermont, all but cementing a spot in the conference tournament. Following a 1-1 tie at Binghamton, UNH rounded out the regular season with a 1-0 loss at the hands of Hartford on Senior Day in the 2010 season finale. In the quarterfinal matchup at Albany, the Wildcats mustered an early first half goal to pull within one tally of the Great Danes but could not score the equalizer, ending the campaign with a 2-1 defeat. Prior to the tournament, the Wildcats were once again recognized by the conference for post-season hardware as junior Kelly Mooney was selected to the America East All-Conference First Team while sophomores Chelsea Kuss and Monique Lamotte earned second-team honors. Freshman goalkeeper Correa was also tabbed for the America East All-Rookie Team. UNH continued to earn high marks in the classroom as well, led by senior Ashley Avitabile and juniors Brooke Duchaney and Alyssa Michel, who were all named to the All-Academic Team. The 2010 season marked the final year in a UNH uniform for seniors Amy Avitabile, Ashley Avitabile, Cassie Guerra, Carole LeBlanc and Marika Posehn.
