Founded in 1866 as the UNH College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts, UNH was among the early state institutions of higher education whose formation was made possible by federal government land grants. The grants were provided to establish colleges to serve the sons and daughters of farming and laboring families. First situated in Hanover, N.H., in connection with Dartmouth College, UNH College moved to Durham in 1893 after Benjamin Thompson, a prosperous farmer, bequeathed land and money to further the development of the college. In 1923, the state legislature granted it a new charter as the University of New Hampshire.

Experiencing tremendous growth, the University now enrolls nearly 15,000 students from nearly all 50 states and 58 countries in undergraduate and graduate programs. At the heart of the University’s undergraduate studies is the General Education Program, a core program with a breadth of academic subjects. The GEP aims to acquaint the student with some of the major modes of thought necessary to understand oneself, others, society and the world. Campus In recent years, several athletic facilities have received major upgrades and overhauls, including the Lundholm Gymnasium basketball and volleyball court. The University also completed a new outdoor track & field facility in 2001 and completely renovated the indoor track in 2009. Other additions have been two $1.5 million outdoor artificial fields, Memorial Field and Bremner Field, as well as the Jerry Azumah Performance Center located in the UNH Field House. The strength and conditioning facility was dedicated on July 8, 2003 and doubled in size in the summer of 2009. The University has also has completed construction on four capital construction building projects, including a renovation of Dimond Library. At a cost of $31.1 million, the new 120,000 square foot Biological Sciences Building (Rudman Hall) and the Spaulding Life Sciences renovation project provides state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories. The $8.2 million renovation project for the Memorial Union Building modernized the existing student union building to include kitchen and dining facilities, two theaters, student mailboxes, lounges and meeting rooms and the Bookstore. Holloway Commons Dining Hall was completed and provides students with one of the finest on-campus dining facilities in the nation. In November 1995, construction reached completion on the Whittemore Center, a $27 million Recreation and Sports Complex. This project included a state-of-the-art 6,000 to 7,500 seat arena used for hockey, basketball, gymnastics, concerts and convocations, as well as a new three-level recreational sports facility within the structure that had housed Snively Arena. UNH is home to the NASA-recognized Space Science Center; the Institute for Study for Earth, Oceans and Space; and the Institute of Marine Science and Engineering. The English program is staffed by winners of the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, the MacArthur Fellowship, the Edgar Allen Poe Award and the Young Poets Award. The Whittemore School of Business and Economics, established in 1962, is consistently ranked near the top among all business schools in a nationwide poll of business school deans.

Memorial Field / Cowell Stadium

The UNH women's lacrosse team will split its 2013 home games between Memorial Field (five games) and Cowell Stadium (two games). Memorial Field, which has been home for the women’s lacrosse team since the program’s inception, was renovated in July 2002. The renovation transformed a grass field adjacent to the Whittemore Center into an AstroTurf facility that features 95,000 square feet of playing surface, full lighting and Bigglestone Plaza. The project cost approximately $1.5 million and was built in conjunction with Bremner Field, which is a 110,000 square-foot AstroPlay facility located on what was formerly known as Upper Field. The UNH women’s lacrosse team made its debut on renovated Memorial Field vs. the University of Massachusetts on March 14, 2003. Memorial Field proved to be a true homefield advantage in the 2004 season when the ‘Cats went 7-1 in the regular season and then won both the semifinal and final games of the America East Championship to earn automatic qualifying status to the NCAAs. Cowell Stadium is named for the former Wildcat athletics director and football coach, William H. “Butch” Cowell, who came to Durham in 1915 and proceeded to change the face of athletics at the University. The field had a facelift in the form of a brand new FieldTurf surface, which was installed prior to the start of the 2007 season. Dedicated as a part of the Lewis Fields on Oct. 10, 1936 and known as Alumni Field until 1952, the stadium was made possible by contributions of the UNH Alumni and was the first project of the Alumni Fund in the history of the University.

Jerry Azumah Performance Center

The Azumah Performance Center opened in the summer of 2003 as a renovation and complete overhaul of the existing strength and conditioning facility located in the UNH Field House. The massive workout facility, which was originally 4,000 square feet, grew to over 6,000 square feet during a summer renovation in 2009. The renovated center features 5,000 pounds of Olympic weights, 7,000 pounds of dumbbells, 18 Powerlift platform stations, 12 Hammer strength machines, an additional 15,000 pounds of weights and 1,500 square feet of warmup area.

Academic Center

The University of New Hampshire athletic department significantly upgraded its Academic Center in the summer of 2003, and it continues to change handin-hand with the needs of student-athletes. The Academic Center provides a secluded, quiet area in the Field House for women’s lacrosse players to focus on academics. Each of the Academic Center computers has internet access and features wireless access for laptop computers. The Academic Center reflects the University’s commitment to academic excellence. UNH’s Michaela Hardy was selected as the 2008 America East Women’s Lacrosse Scholar-Athlete of the Year and she was joined on the IWLCA All-Academic Team by Sarah Von Bargen. That duo, as well as Ashley Durepo, was named to the America East Women’s Lacrosse All-Academic Team. In 2012, a total of 17 Wildcats were named to the America East Winter/Spring Academic Honor Roll; five of those student-athletes were recognized on the Commissioner's Honor Roll for recording at least a 3.50 GPA during the spring semester. Jenny Simpson and Jamie DePetris were voted to the All-Academic Team; Simpson also earned that accolade in 2011.

President

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

A dministration

The 2012-13 academic year marks the 13th 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. His many accomplishments 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. With a Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 89 percent among its student-athletes in 2011-12, UNH ranked third in the America East Conference and fourth in the Colonial Athletic Association. The men’s soccer, women’s cross country/track, gymnastics, women’s ski, and volleyball teams all posted perfect 100 percent GSRs while five additional programs tallied scores of 90 or above. The NCAA honored four Wildcat teams for multi-year Academic Progress Rates (APRs) in the top 10 percent of all teams in its respective sports. The Wildcat men’s ice hockey team and gymnastics both recorded perfect APRs of 1,000, while the men’s outdoor track & field team tallied 997 points and women’s indoor track & field notched 995. In 2012, the football program garnered its second-consecutive Academic Progress Rate Award for the Colonial Athletic Association. UNH became one of only five FCS programs in the nation to earn the title for a second straight year and the only FCS team in the country to both reach the postseason and capture an APR award in back-to-back seasons. UNH finished third in the America East Academic Cup for their third consecutive top-three finish, achieving a 3.14 cumulative gradepoint average. The Wildcats had the highest number of honorees on the 2011 America East Fall Academic Honor Roll and the highest percentage of student-athletes on the 2011-12 America East Winter/Spring Academic Honor Roll. In the fall, 52 student-athletes were named to the America East Commissioner’s Honor Roll for achieving a GPA mark of 3.5 or higher while 76 student-athletes accomplished the feat on the winter/spring honor roll. 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 and will host again in 2013. UNH was host of the NCAA Women’s Ice Hockey Frozen Four at 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 women’s hockey team also played in the first outdoor game in the history of NCAA women’s hockey in 2010 at the Sun Life Frozen Fenway game and defeated Northeastern while the men’s squad played in the 2012 Sun Life Frozen Fenway game against Maine. Football also competed in Colonial Clash games at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. in 2010 and 2011 against UMass. During the Scarano era, UNH teams have made 40 NCAA post-season appearances and captured 11 conference titles. Gymnastics has participated in 11 NCAA tournaments, leading all programs over the span. Men’s hockey holds a pair of Hockey East titles and has made 10 trips to the NCAA tournament, including Frozen Four appearances in 2002 and 2003. The football program has qualified for the NCAA FCS postseason for a nation leading eight consecutive seasons and advanced to the quarterfinals six times during the streak. Women’s ice hockey has seen NCAA action five times with two Frozen Four appearances. The squad also captured consecutive Hockey East Championships from 2006-09. The field hockey team captured its second ever America East crown in 2011 en route to its second national tournament appearance under Scarano’s tutelage. Volleyball has made a pair of NCAA appearances after capturing back-to-back conference titles in 2002 and 2003. Women’s lacrosse has too earned a pair of NCAA berths (2004, 2008), one coming after an America East championship victory in 2004. Additionally, 24 coaches have won 63 Coach of the Year awards during Scarano’s tenure, ranging from conference coach of the year to New England and Northeast Regional Coach of the Year honors. Furthermore, head football coach Sean McDonnell garnered the Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year by The Sports Network in 2005 after a stellar 11-2 campaign. There has been over $9 million in capitol improvements since Scarano’s hiring in the summer of 2000. Recently, a new scoreboard was put in at Cowell Stadium while the football locker room received a facelift as part the most recent renovation phase. Changes to the locker room included a new lighting system while a 55-inch flat-screen TV and Fathead-designed murals featuring former players and UNH historical images were added to the walls. A memorial of Todd Walker was also added in honor of the former Wildcat wide receiver who suffered an untimely and heroic death in March of 2011. In the summer of 2007, the Cowell Stadium grass field was replaced with a $1 million Field Turf synthetic surface. 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. Additionally in 2007, a complete renovation of Lundholm Gymnasium was undertaken. The $600,000 overhaul included a new state-of-the-art bleacher system, new scoreboards, competition baskets and other aesthetic enhancements.

Academics

Tradition. Pri de . Exce l l e n ce .

The mission of the student-athlete academic support services office at UNH is to provide the academic support and resources necessary for students to succeed in their academic endeavors. The Academic Support staff strives to assist student-athletes in meeting their academic goals in four ways: provide general academic information, monitor academic progress, arrange tutorial services and refer student-athletes to other support offices on campus. There are several ways in which the academic progress of student-athletes is monitored: communication with professors, academic advisors, and coaches on an ongoing basis; progress reports for all first year student-athletes; meetings with academic support staff throughout the year; group and individual meetings are held with studentJoanne Maldari Cathy Leach athletes to monitor progress and offer additional academic strategies. All student-athletes are eligible for free tutorial assistance through the Athletic Department. The tutors are undergraduate and graduate students at the University who have been recommended by their professors to tutor in a specific subject area. Student-athletes arrange tutoring sessions – with the option of individual or small groups – to accommodate their own schedules The Student-Athlete Academic Center is located in the Field House and contains new computers, study carrels and study tables. It is a quiet place for studentathletes to complete academic work before and after practice. The benefits of the academic support system were once again evident in 2011-12 as UNH had the highest number of student-athletes named to the America East Fall Honor Roll (96) – it marked the third consecutive Fall season and fifth time in eight Fall semesters the Wildcats accomplished that feat – and the highest percentage of student-athletes named to the Winter/Spring Honor Roll (65%). Additionally, the football team led the CAA with 20 members named to the CAA Academic All-Conference Team. The men’s and women’s soccer teams received the NSCAA Academic Award for having a team GPA of at least 3.0. UNH was one of only two schools to have both teams receive this award. Four Wildcat teams were honored by the NCAA with the Public Recognition Award for multiyear Academic Progress Rates (APR) in the top 10 percent of all teams in their respective sports: gymnastics, men’s hockey, men’s outdoor track & field and women’s indoor track & field. Also, the football team was recognized for its academic success and student-athlete graduation rate by receiving the Academic Progress Rate (APR) Award for the CAA. UNH was one of only five FCS programs in the nation to garner the honor for a second straight season and was the only FCS team in the country to both reach the postseason and capture an APR Award in back-to-back seasons. Serving as Student-Athlete Support Coordinator for an 18th year is Assistant Athletic Director Joanne Maldari, a 1990 graduate of Holy Cross who went on to earn her master’s degree in Athletic Counseling at Springfield College. She was recognized for her outstanding efforts at UNH by receiving the University’s 2001 Academic Advising Award. Maldari is assisted by Cathy Leach, who is entering her 11th year as the Assistant Athletic Director for Academic Support and Compliance, and Shawn Green, who is entering his third year and also splits time between academic support and compliance.

Student-athlete development

The office of Student Athlete Development, under the leadership of Cathy Coakley since the 2008-09 academic year, exists to assist UNH student-athletes in learning and perfecting skills necessary to be successful in the classroom, on the playing field, in the University and seacoast community and in life-long endeavors. We coordinate comprehensive, sequential educational programs that enhance personal welfare and growth. In so doing, we utilize the expertise and services of many departments and organizations on campus. Included in these programs are: Health (substance use/abuse, sexually responsible behavior, sport-specific nutrition), Hazing, Diversity and Inclusion (gender, ethnicity, race, religion, sexual orientation), Career Planning and Preparation, Financial Responsibility, Leadership and Community Service. The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is a leadership group, selected by coaches and teammates, that acts as liaison between Cathy Coakley the athletic administration and student-athletes. The purpose of SAAC is to: provide communication and feedback to the athletic administration regarding student-athletes’ concerns, policies and procedures; disseminate information from the administration, campus organizations and the conference to their coaches and teammates; promote UNH Athletics in a positive way across campus, in Durham and throughout the seacoast area; build “community” within the Athletic Department by involving all teams in activities, events and educational programs; be a voice in the America East conference and NCAA regarding legislation, policy and community outreach; increase student body, faculty and staff attendance at athletic events by increasing athlete visibility and involvement in campus activities; organize community service projects that involve all teams, collectively and individually.

media & public relations

The Athletic Media Relations department at UNH consists of five sports information professionals and workstudy students. The Associate Athletic Director for Athletic Media & Public Relations is Tom Wilkins (Assumption '03); Wilkins, who is in his second stint at UNH, served as an Associate Director in the office before being promoted in June 2010. Douglas Poole, a ‘93 graduate of UNH, and Mike Murphy are Associate Directors. Poole, who will serve as the women's lacrosse liaison for the 14th consecutive year, was employed as a sportswriter at two local newspapers prior to returning to his alma mater in the spring of 1997. The primary responsibility of the media relations department is to promote the 20 varsity sports at UNH. Tom Wilkins Doug Poole Included in this responsibility is the coordination of relations with media members, the promotion of studentathletes for academic and athletic awards (on the conference, regional and national levels), maintenance of the athletics website, the production of media guides and programs, and the maintenance of team and individual statistics.

Strength & conditioning

The two basic goals of the Strength and Conditioning department are injury prevention and performance enhancement for the 20 varsity sports sponsored by the University of New Hampshire, and they have been key in guiding UNH student-athletes to NCAA appearances in both women’s and men’s ice hockey, field hockey, football, gymnastics, women’s volleyball, women’s lacrosse, skiing and track and field. The first goal, injury prevention, revolves around reducing the likelihood of the student-athlete getting injured during games or practice by training the student-athlete as a unit and pinpointing weaknesses in the player that need to be strengthened. The second goal, performance enhancement, centers on making the student-athlete a better studentPaul Chapman John Ciani athlete. This is done by educating student-athletes on a wide range of training from Olympic-style weightlifting to teaching the student-athlete how to move more efficiently while running or during an agility drill. The Strength and Conditioning program plays a vital role in the success of Wildcat basketball. The student-athletes train year-round to perform at their highest level throughout the season. The strength and conditioning program is a comprehensive training program that involves Olympic-style weightlifting, traditional strength training, plyometrics, agility/quickness training and sport-specific conditioning. Paul Chapman enters his 11th year as the director of strength and conditioning at the University of New Hampshire. During his tenure at UNH, Chapman helped coordinate the building and subsequent expansion of the state-of-the-art Jerry Azumah Performance Center. Chapman is a member of the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association (strength and conditioning coach certified), USA Weightlifting (certified level 1 coach), the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and he was the state director of the National Strength and Conditioning Association in North Dakota from 1991-95. He has also authored four publications related to strength and conditioning and has trained and consulted several NFL, CFL and NHL athletes, and prospective athletes preparing for all-star games, bowl games and pre-draft testing. John Ciani is entering his 11th year at UNH; after four years as an assistant coach in the University’s strength and conditioning office, Ciani was promoted to the position of Associate Director of Strength and Conditioning in 2006. Ciani, a native of the San Diego, Calif. area, came to UNH after a stint as assistant strength coach at the University of North Dakota. In 2000, John began his career in strength and conditioning at Long Beach State as a graduate assistant working with the perennial national power women’s volleyball team, where he trained many All-American and national team level volleyball players, including Misty May.

Sarah Albrecht, whose impressive playing pedigree includes two collegiate national championships at Northwestern University and seven years on the U.S. women’s national senior team, was named the University of New Hampshire women's lacrosse head coach in July 2012. Albrecht came to UNH following her second stint at the University of Massachusetts in which she served as associate head coach for two years. The Braintree, Mass. native helped lead UMass to an Atlantic-10 championship and the NCAA tournament in both the 2011 and 2012 seasons.

Career Record [Yrs] 0-0 / First year

She worked specifically with the defensive unit, which was ranked No. 10 in the nation both years, and the goalkeepers, who ranked ninth nationally in goals-against-average in 2011 and 12th in that statistic the following year. Her other duties as the Minutewomen’s associate head coach included assisting the head coach in all aspects of daily operations, including recruiting, practice planning, development of lacrosse fundamentals, administrative duties and video editing of game and scout films.

Record at UNH [Yrs] 0-0 / First year

In three years (2008-10) as an assistant coach at Harvard University, Albrecht helped the Crimson to its best three-year record since 1994-96. Harvard boasted two Ivy League Rookies of the Year and had the league's leading scorer two consecutive years under her tutelage of the offensive unit.

The University of New Hampshire women’s lacrosse team is on the threshold of more than a new season – it’s a new era for the Wildcats under the leadership of first year head coach Sarah Albrecht. And it all begins Feb. 16 (11 a.m.) when UNH plays its 2013 season opener at Hofstra University. Albrecht, an active seven-year player on the U.S. women’s national senior team, directs a UNH team comprised of 19 letterwinners, including nine starters, and six newcomers. Six of the eight double-digit point scorers and two of three goalkeepers return to the fold, and that includes captains Jenny Simpson (New Canaan, Conn.) and Kathleen O’Keefe (Chatham, N.J.). Simpson, an attacker, is the team’s second leading returning scorer – she produced 30 points on 24 goals and six assists, and earned America East All-Academic Team recognition for the second consecutive year in 2012. She led the ‘Cats in shooting percentage (54.5%) and scored a goal in 13 of 16 games with five multiple-goal efforts as part of seven multiple-point games. O’Keefe saw action in 10 games (seven starts) a year ago and played 416:56 of a possible 960 minutes in goal. In four games in the month of March, she recorded a .468 save percentage and her goals-against-average improved each month with a season-best 10.99 in three April games. O’Keefe is an athletic goalie who has a penchant for stepping out of the crease to intercept passes. The third team captain is defender Casey Doyle (Ivyland, Pa.), who has started 48 of 49 games in her three-year career with 16 starts in ’12. She became a leader of UNH’s defensive unit last season, when she ranked fourth on the squad in caused turnovers and fifth in ground balls. One year earlier as a sophomore, Doyle was also among the statistical leaders in ground balls (third) and caused turnovers (fourth). Sophomore midfielder Laura Puccia (Fairport, N.Y.), a 2012 America East All-Rookie Team selection, led the ‘Cats in goals (34), points (41) and shots (65) a year ago. She was the first UNH freshman to record 30-plus goals and 40-plus points since 2006 and the first rookie to lead the Wildcats in goals since 1988. In other stats, Puccia ranked second in draw controls and shooting percentage (.523) as well as fifth in assists. She ended the year with a 10-game goal-scoring streak and scored a goal in 15 of 16 games overall with nine multiple-goal efforts as part of 10 multiple-point performances. New Hampshire will also receive offensive production out of the midfield from seniors Amber Casiano (South Windsor, Conn.) and Chelsea Cyester (Parker, Colo.) as well as sophomore Rachael Nock (Severna Park, Md.). Casiano started 14 of 16 games a year ago and has 42 starts in 48 career games. She ranked third among returning Wildcats in both goals (20) and points (24) in 2012. In other stats, Casiano was second overall in ground balls and third in draw controls, as well as fifth in shots and fourth in shooting percentage. Cyester was on the verge of a breakout year in ‘12 when she incurred a season-ending injury during the seventh game. Before then, she recorded a four-game point-scoring streak in which she tallied 10 points on eight goals and two assists. Nock played in all 16 games and was in the starting lineup nine times last year as a freshman, when she tied for second in assists with nine and also netted nine goals for a total of 18 points. She tallied a point in 11 of 16 games with six multiple-point efforts. The midfield also includes junior Molly Gaffey (North Hampton, N.H.) and sophomore Brooke McGillis (Berwyn, Pa.). Gaffey appeared in 13 games last year and emerged as a starter late in ’12, when she was in the lineup three of the last six games. McGillis played in every game and was in the starting lineup 15 times last season; she ranked third in caused turnovers and fourth in ground balls.

Jenny Simpson, Kathleen O'Keefe, Casey Doyle Emma Rossi (Northfield, Ill.), who was an All-State First Team selection as a senior at New Trier High School, and Hannah Wohltmann (Towson, Md.) join the midfield unit. Other than Simpson, the attack is young. Sophomore Kayleigh Hinkle (Glenelg, Md.) is the next top point producer. Hinkle recorded 13 goals and nine assists for 22 points in 16 games (11 starts). Classmate Becca Graves (Rowley, Mass.) saw limited action last year in eight games and tallied one point on an assist. Emma Kriss (Rockville Centre, N.Y.) sat out the 2012 season after transferring from Old Dominion University, where she played 15 games (10 starts) with four points (3g, 1a) as a freshman in 2011. Incoming freshmen Nicole Grote (Ellicott City, Md.), Laura McHoul (Westwood, Mass.) and Trinity Scanlon (Upton, Mass.) have the opportunity to make an immediate impact. Grote amassed 198 career points on 85 goals and 113 assists. McHoul compiled 453 career points (210 goals, 243 assists) and was an UnderArmour AllAmerica Team honoree as a senior in 2012, when she led Westwood to the state title with 75 goals and 96 assists. In addition to Doyle, the defensive unit has a wealth of experience in returning veterans Brittany Conner (Wilton, Conn.), Jamie DePetris (Radnor, Pa.), Cara Dowdle (Northbrook, Ill.) and Cori Rees (East Hampstead, N.H.) – all of whom are juniors. The lone new defender is freshman Gen Eby (Towson, Md.). Conner was in the starting lineup seven times last year as a sophomore and played in 14 games overall; she has appeared in 25 games with 12 starts in two years. DePetris was selected to the 2012 America East All-Academic Team; she started the same number of games as Conner and played in every game, while Dowdle started five of the 14 games in which she played. Rees is a cornerstone of the defensive unit, as she has 25 starts in 33 career games and she ranked fifth on last year’s squad in caused turnovers. Sophomore Taylor Hurwitz (Holland, Pa.) is the other goalie on the roster. She played the same number of games as O’Keefe but Hurwitz had one less start and played 100 fewer minutes. Following the Feb. 16 season opener, UNH will play its first of seven home games Feb. 23 against the University of Massachusetts at Memorial Field. The Wildcats open the America East portion of the schedule March 24 (at Albany) as they look to return to the conference tournament, in which the ‘Cats made a record 14 consecutive appearances spanning 1998-2011.

About America East...

Now in its fourth decade of operation, America East has evolved into one of the most comprehensive NCAA Division I conferences with a commitment to broad-based, competitive athletics programs, complementing the academic integrity and missions of the member institutions. Progressive in its approach to its more than 3,400 student-athletes, America East recognizes champions in each of its 20 sports, including women’s basketball. America East also conducts the nation’s most comprehensive academic recognition program for student-athletes and partners. With a geographic footprint covering the Mid-Atlantic to Northeast regions of the United States, America East strives to develop champions in academics, athletics and leadership at its nine member institutions. America East has experienced unprecedented success in recent years on the playing surface, in the classroom and throughout its member institutions’ communities. Starting with the 2007-08 academic year, the conference has seen 25 teams win NCAA games, produced two individual national champions and had 120 student-athletes earn All-America recognition. In the classroom, hundreds of student-athletes have earned national or regional academic honors while America East’s Academic Progress Rate has improved every year since 2004-05 and ranks among the top three conferences in the country. America East has also sponsored programs aimed at improving its members’ communities, partnering with Newman’s Own Foundation for the Campus Community Challenge each of the past three years as well as teaming up with College For Every Student on student service projects each of the past two years. Under the leadership of new commissioner Amy Huchthausen, America East is positioned for even more success in the years ahead. 2011-12 was a banner year for America East. Four of the conference’s champions combined for nine NCAA wins, the most ever for the league in a single year. On top of the NCAA success in team sports, Stony Brook’s Lucy Van Dalen became the conference’s third-ever national champion, winning the mile at the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championship. Other highlights from the year included a third-place finish in field hockey conference RPI and 30 student-athletes receiving All-America recognition. Off the field, America East posted the third-highest APR in the country, trailing only the Ivy and Patriot leagues, and 31 of its teams received NCAA public recognition awards. Additionally, 17 student-athletes received national academic honors.

For the second straight year, America East partnered with Newman’s Own Foundation to encourage community service among students through the NOF Campus Community Challenge. Nine grants of $7,500 to $25,000 were awarded to honor and support student groups engaged in philanthropy and community service. In total, more than $100,000 was given to America East student groups. America East and College for Every Student (CFES), a national non-profit that helps underserved kids attend college, held an event on April 9. Student-athletes partnered with CFES Scholars at participating schools for a community service project, ranging from beautifying school property to collecting food and shoes for charity drives. Members of the America East Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), with at least one representative from each of the nine America East schools, volunteered their time to clean up and paint at the Heading Home Family Shelter in Boston as part of “Make a Difference Day.” Five America East institutions are ranked among the top 105 national universities according to the U.S News and World Report America’s Best College Guide and UMBC was recognized as the top “Up-and-Coming” university in the country for the second straight year.
