the University

The University of New Hampshire was originally founded as a land-grant college whose mission was to shape and educate citizenry among the state’s farmers, business people and engineers. Today, the University is a land-, sea-, and space-grant university serving a growing undergraduate student body of about 11,942 and a graduate population of 2,257 in addition to 621 full-time faculty members, 86% of which have earned their doctorate degree. The University has grown into a top public research university occupying 2,600 acres of classic living and learning space, while still maintaining the look and feel of a New England liberal arts college with a faculty dedicated to teaching. UNH’s student to faculty ratio registers at 18:1 with 85% of its classes having 50 students or less. HISTORY As one of the most prestigious institutions in the Northeast, the University of New Hampshire has always been recognized as a leader in education and research, spanning all fields of study and uniting them through interdisciplinary programs, labs, farms, theatres, research centers, and libraries. Founded in 1866 as the New Hampshire College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts, UNH was among the early state institutions of higher education whose formation was made possible by federal government land grants. The purpose for the grants was to establish colleges that would serve the sons and daughters of farming and laboring families. New Hampshire College was originally situated in Hanover in connection with Dartmouth College before moving to Durham in 1893 after Benjamin Thompson bequeathed land and money to further the development of the college. The state legislature then granted its new charter as the University of New Hampshire in 1923. The University hosts 733 international students from more than 45 countries and boasts a population of students from all 50 states. Along with over 100 majors offered, UNH encompasses seven schools and colleges from which undergraduates can choose: the College of Liberal Arts, College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, School of Health and Human Services, College of Life Sciences and Agricultures, Whittemore School of Business and Economics and the Thompson School of Applied Science. And at the very heart of the University’s undergraduate studies is the General Education Program. The GEP is a core program with a breadth of academic subjects that aims to acquaint the student with some of the major modes of thought necessary to understand oneself, others, society, and the world. The University prides itself as being a top 10 entrepreneurial campus (Forbes.com and The Princeton Review) and is among the top 30 universities nationally in science research funding from NASA. UNH is home to the NASA-recognized Space Science Center; the Institute for Study for Earth, Oceans and Space; and the Institute of Marine Science and Engineering. The English program is staffed by an inspiring faculty of winners of the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, the MacArthur Fellowship, the Edgar Allen Poe Award and the Young Poets Award. In addition, the Whittemore School of Business and Economics, established in 1962, was recently selected second among all business schools in a nationwide pool of business school deans. UNH also graduates students who attend top-notch graduate schools, including Law School at Harvard and Cornell, Engineering at Stanford, and Medical school at Dartmouth, John Hopkins, and Harvard.

University of UNH Athletic Department Mission Statement and Diversity Statement

Mission Statement The mission of the intercollegiate athletics program at the University of UNH is to provide student-athletes a collegiate experience that is enriched by their participation in programs which are competitive at the NCAA Division I level both regionally and nationally. The intercollegiate athletics program also plays an important 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. Diversity Statement The University seeks excellence through diversity among its administrators, faculty, staff, and students. The university prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, veteran status, or marital status. The University of UNH is committed to creating a more diverse community, knowing that “inclusion, diversity and equity are values inextricably linked to our mission of educational excellence.” This diversity strengthens our ability to reach our individual and collective potential and to provide better services and care for all faculty, staff, and students.

the University

CAMPUS In the last few years, several of the athletic facilities have received major upgrades and improvements. In September 2001, the University completed a new $2.15 million track and field facility. The Jerry Azumah Performance Center, a brand new strength and conditioning facility located in the UNH Field House, was dedicated on July 8, 2003. UNH athletics has also added two brand new $1.5 million outdoor artificial fields, Memorial Field and Bremner Field. Lundholm Gymnasium has received some major overhauls, including a new playing surface, new lights, new sound system, new bleacher system, new backboards and new scoreboards. Most recently, the Paul Sweet Oval was completely renovated in 2009 to include new surfaces, lighting, painting, infrastructure upgrades and the replacement of windows that existed in the original architecture. In addition to the incredible improvements of its athletic facilities, the University has upgraded and renovated a large part of its academic campus as well. Most recently, Thompson Hall, one of the standing historical landmarks of the University, has been beautifully refurbished and restored. UNH also completed a $52 million renovation of Kingsbury Hall, adding 6,000 square feet of student project space for students in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, as well as a $4.5 million revamp of Hewitt Hall to expand the School of Health and Human Services. In addition, the new 120,000 square foot Biological Sciences Building, Rudman Hall and the Spaulding Life Sciences Renovation project now provide state-of-the-art teaching and researching laboratories. The University also spent $15 million to complete Morse Hall, a new science and engineering building as well as $8.2 million to modernize the Memorial Union Building. This revision to the existing student union building consisted of several upgrades including top kitchen and dining facilities, two theaters, student mailboxes, lounges and meeting rooms, as well as additional retail spaces such as the University Bookstore. The University has also completed construction of the new dining facility on Main Street, Holloway Commons, as well as the renovation of the Dimond Library and satellite libraries. In November 1995, construction of the $27 million Recreation and Sport Complex reached completion. The new Whittemore Center includes a state-of-the-art 6,500 to 7,500 seat arena for hockey, concerts and convocations, as well as a new three-level recreational sports facility within the structure that had housed the old Snively Arena. The latest addition to the expanding campus is the Paul College of Business and Economics, a 115,000 square foot academic building located on Garrison Avenue. Slated for completion in January 2013, the building will feature 16 technology-rich classrooms, totaling 950 new instructional seats. There will also be 25 high-tech group study rooms along with a two-story “Great Hall” for informal and special events. Outside of the facility, there will be a courtyard for outdoor activities and events. The building will be a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold facility, maintaining the University’s commitment to sustainable programs and facilities. The University broke ground on the project in May 2011. Combining the atmosphere of a small New England liberal arts college with the resources and opportunities of a major research university, the University of New Hampshire is a place where all students can find or create their own niche and succeed. While the University offers an extremely broad academic base with an inspiring faculty, it also provides students with thousands of opportunities to get involved, either through athletics, campus recreation, student life, or research. The University is a dynamic community that not only challenges its members academically but also expands their understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity and leads to incredible growth as students, faculty, staff, and as a community.

AMERICA EAST

Now in its fourth decade of operation, America East has evolved into one of the most comprehensive NCAA Div. 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 studentathletes, America East recognizes champions in each of its 20 sports, including field hockey. America East also conducts the nation’s most comprehensive academic recognition program for studentathletes 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: Albany, Binghamton, Boston University, Hartford, Maine, UMBC, Stony Brook, Vermont and UNH. 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 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. Four conference’s champions combined for nine NCAA wins, the most ever for the league in a single year. Other highlights included a third-place finish in field hockey conference RPI and 30 student-athletes receiving AllAmerica recognition. Off the field, America East posted the third-highest APR in the country and 31 of its teams received NCAA public recognition awards. Additionally, 17 student-athletes received national academic honors.

Sr. Associate Athletic Director Senior Woman Administrator

Dr. Mark 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.

Administration

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 grade-point 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. 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 has also been an active member in the leadership of UNH’s three major conferences and was the chair of the executive committees for Atlantic 10 football, 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. Most recently, Scarano was a member of the Hockey East restructuring team that successfully recruited Notre Dame and the University of Connecticut to the conference. Outside of athletics, Scarano is in his 10th year on the Board of Corporators at Canterbury Shaker Village, a non-profit museum located in Canterbury, N.H. Before arriving at the University of New Hampshire, 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, Lyndon, Kyle, a sophomore at UNH, and Corey.

Academic Support Services Athletic excellence is one-half the formula for success in the collegiate experience for University of New Hampshire field hockey 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 2004 and Winter/Spring 2005 semesters, UNH placed the highest number of student-athletes on the America East Academic Honor Roll; the University accomplished the feat again in Fall ‘06, Fall ‘09, Fall ‘10 and Fall ‘11; in the Winter/Spring 2012 semester, UNH had the highest percentage of student-athletes named to that 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 field players give to the school, the University administers a comprehensive program of academic support services that is available to Wildcat field hockey 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. Serving as Student-Athlete Support Coordinator 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. Cathy Leach, Assistant Athletic Director for Academic Support and Compliance, is entering her ninth year as an assistant in the realm of academic support. Leach served as UNH’s Women’s Sports Information Director (1985-88) and as interim Athletic Director (1989-90 season) before working in admissions from 1990-2001. 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 the athletic administration and student-athletes. All teams are represented, and field hockey had strong representation in the roles of co-President and co-Vice President. 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. Athletic Media & Public Relations The primary responsibility of the Athletic Media & Public Relations office is to promote the 20 varsity sports at the University of New Hampshire. Included in this responsibility is working with media members, the promotion of student-athletes for academic and athletic awards (on the conference, regional and national levels), press releases, the production of media guides, game notes and programs, the maintenance of (team and individual) statistics and the content of the official UNH athletics website (www.unhwildcats.com) as well as related social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

Support Staff

Sports Medicine The Sports Medicine Department at the University of New Hampshire consists of eight full- and part-time certified and licensed athletic trainers. In addition to director Jon Dana, the full-time employees are Glenn Riefenstahl, Cindy Michaud, Renee Kleszczynski and Dan Sedory, who serves primarily as the Coordinator for the CAAHEP approved Athletic Training Curriculum. The primary staff also includes Christine Alarcon, Meg Lesnikoski and Hannah Berg. Dana has been involved with UNH athletic program since 1984. He began his career as an assistant athletic trainer and was promoted to men’s head athletic trainer in 1987 and head athletic trainer for the entire program in 1989. In 2001, he was named UNH’s Director of Sports Medicine. His international experience includes working at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, at the 2004 Paralympics in Athens and working with the U.S. Track and Field Team at the Paralympics World Championships in Lille, France. Berg, a 2008 graduate of Connecticut State University who went on to earn a Masters in Athletic Training from Kent State University in 2010, joined the UNH Sports Medicine department in August 2012. Her main responsibilities include providing preventative care, treatment, evaluations and rehabilitation for the field hockey and women’s basketball teams. The department works out of two locations: the Field House and the Whittemore Center. Both athletic training rooms utilize currently available modalities including muscle stimulators, ultrasound, heat, cryotherapy and hydrotherapy. The Certified Athletic Trainer provides a myriad of services to the department and the student-athlete. These include, but are not limited to, initial injury assessment and management, emergency injury/illness management, referral to appropriate professionals, interface with associated physicians and others, rehabilitation, counseling, administrative duties including insurance coordination, supervision of practices and games, development and implementation of emergency plans, as well as student athletic supervision. The athletic training room is considered to be “a designated facility where comprehensive health care services are provided. Comprehensive health care services included practice and game preparation, injury/illness evaluation, first aid and emergency care, follow-up care, rehabilitation and related services.” (National Athletic Trainer’s Association Education council). 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 studentathletes 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 student-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 UNH field hockey. 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. Chapman is a 1990 graduate of Dickinson State University in North Dakota with a B.S. degree in Biology. He then went on to earn at M.S. in Exercise Science from North Dakota in 1994. An outstanding college athlete, Chapman was inducted into the Dickinson State Athletic Hall of Fame for his efforts on the football field. He was a two-time All-America First Team selection as well as an All-America Second Team honoree in his four-year playing career. Upon graduation, he was a fourthround draft choice of the Saskatchewan Rough Riders in the Canadian Football League. John Ciani is entering his 11th year directing the strength and conditioning program for the UNH field hockey program. After four years as an assistant coach in the University’s strength and conditioning office, Ciani was promoted to the position of Associate Director of Strength and Conditioning in 2006. Ciani, a native of the San Diego, Calif. area, came to UNH after a stint as assistant strength coach at the University of North Dakota. In 2000, John began his career in strength and conditioning at Long Beach State as a graduate assistant working with the perennial national power women’s volleyball team, where he trained many All-American and national team level volleyball players, including Misty May. Ciani received a B.A. degree in Psychology from Long Beach State and worked on his Master’s Degree in Exercise Science at the University of North Dakota.

In her fourth season, Balducci guided New Hampshire to its best record in five years with a 14-8 mark in ‘94. The team was ranked 14th in the country that year and advanced to the NAC championship game. Without a place to call home in 1995 – Memorial Field was unplayable because of the Whittemore Center construction – Balducci coached the ‘Cats to a 7-12 mark.

Season Outlook

OVERVIEW The University of New Hampshire field hockey team won the America East regular-season championship in 2010 and 2011 – with a combined league record of 9-1 – and takes aim at a three-peat in 2012 under the direction of 22ndyear head coach Robin Balducci, who was honored as the league’s Coaching Staff of the Year both of those championship seasons. The Wildcats, who return 13 letterwinners, including six starters, and welcome nine newcomers to the program, tied the school record for victories (17) and broke the single-season benchmark for goals, assists and points en route to winning the 2011 league tournament title and advancing to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2000. In addition to a third consecutive regular-season title, successful defense of its tourney crown and another trip to the NCAAs, UNH looks to extended its streak of double-digit victories to four consecutive years, which is a feat that hasn’t been accomplished since the 1997-2000 seasons. attack UNH graduated two of its all-time top point producers (All-America selections Whitney Frates and Hayley Rausch), which will give its five returners and four newcomers a chance to step into the spotlight and continue the Wildcats’ recent stretch of prolific offenses. Mary Quill, a senior from neighboring Greenland, had a breakthrough season in 2011. She entered last season with 15 career games played in two years and more than doubled that number with 16 appearances, including one start, as a junior. As an important part of the rotation on the front line, Quill recorded six points – all on goals. Mackenzie Joyce (South Pomfret, Vt.) has seen limited playing time wearing the Blue and White for two years. She played in just one game as a freshman and saw action in nine games, including the America East Championship title game, last year as a sophomore. When Joyce was on the field, she was part of the offensive penalty corner unit as the insert. Hannah Richard – another Granite State native (Hopkinton) – was also a key component off UNH’s bench in 2011. She played in 18 of 22 games, including all three in the postseason. As a freshman in 2010, Richard appeared in all 21 regular-season games and was in the starting lineup six times. She has played in all 10 America East conference games in two years as a Wildcat. Claire Grogan (Canton, Mass.) has seen limited playing time – 13 career games, all off the bench – since joining the program as a walk-on before the start of the 2009 season. Sophomore Meg Flatley (Townsend, Mass.) is another student-athlete who walked onto the team; she did not see any game action last fall. The four newcomers looking to provide a scoring touch for the ‘Cats on the front line are Meg Carroll (Mansfield, Mass.), Emma Compagna (Canton, Mass.), Lynne Lehman (Landisburg, Pa.) and Cari Posternak (York, Maine). Both Carroll and Compagna were named to the Hockomock League All-Star Team a year ago. Lehman was an All-State Second Team selection and three-time all-conference honoree. Posternak was a two-time selection to the All-State Team and led York to consecutive state titles. Midfield The midfield, patrolled by seniors Emma Erler (New Hampton, N.H.) and Melyssa Woods (Glens Falls, N.Y.) as well as junior Casey Pohlmeyer (Millersville, Md.), is the backbone of the 2012 Wildcats. This triumvirate boasts seven years of starting experience and all three student-athletes are integral to both the defensive and offensive penalty corner units. Woods immediately stepped into a starting role upon arriving in Durham and has America East All-Rookie Team (2009) on her résumé. She recorded five points (two goals, one assist) last year to duplicate her personal-best numbers from that freshman year. Erler, an America East All-Academic Team selection each of the past two years for her excellence in athletics and academics, stepped into a starting role as a sophomore and, in terms of offensive statistics, had a breakout season in ‘11. Erler finished with four goals and 10 assists for 18 points, and those numbers ranked third overall in assists and fourth in points; she is UNH’s top returner in both assists and points. Pohlmeyer was selected to the America East All-Rookie Team in 2010 and followed that with an even stronger sophomore campaign in which she tallied five goals and three assists for 13 points. Pohlmeyer ranked fifth in points and tied for fourth in goals; among returning players, she is second to Erler in points and tied Megan Bozek atop the goals leaderboard. Pohlmeyer also tops all returning ‘Cats in shots (28). Kellie Joyce (South Pomfret, Vt.), who joined older sister Mackenzie at UNH last year as a freshman, is another Wildcat midfielder who has garnered America East All-Rookie Team recognition. Kellie led all Wildcat freshmen in goals (two), assists (three) and points (seven) in 2011. Among returning players, she was the team’s fourth leading point producer and tied for second – with Pohlmeyer – in assists. Taylor Rideout (Barrington, R.I.) is the only new addition to an experienced quartet of midfielders. Rideout was named to the NFHCA All-America Third Team as a high school senior and was selected to the All-State First Team twice.

Season Outlook

BACKS The defensive unit, like the attack, must replace two key players lost to graduation (All-America honoree Kyle Lyons and Kendall Deck). But UNH can build its core around junior Megan Bozek (Cortlandt Manor, N.Y.) and sophomore Maegan Grew (Hampton Falls, N.H.), both of whom are critical cogs of the defensive penalty corner. Bozek’s collegiate accolades include NFHCA Northeast Region Second Team, America East All-Conference Second Team and America East All-Academic Team in 2011 as well as 2010 conference All-Rookie Team. In addition to solidifying the defense – she recorded a team-high three defensive saves – Bozek is a scoring threat on offensive penalty corners. She tallied 11 points on five goals and an assist a year ago to rank sixth in points and tied for fourth in goals; with those numbers, Bozek is tied among returning players for the top mark in goals and is third in points. Grew started all 22 games alongside Bozek in the ‘11 season and was selected to the America East All-Rookie Team for her defensive prowess. Christine Albertelli (Ballwin, Mo.) looks to see increased playing time as a sophomore; she played in three games – all off the bench – a year ago. Chandler Giese (Trappe, Pa.) and Molly Heaney (East Kingston, N.H.) are expected to make immediate contributions. Giese as an All-State First Team selection in 2011 and one year earlier she was named to the Second Team; Giese was tabbed to the Pac 10 All-Conference First Team both years. Heaney also had a highly-decorated schoolgirl career in which she was a three-time All-State First Team honoree (2009-10-11) and New Hampshire Division I Player of the Year (2011); she was an All-State Second Team selection as a freshman in 2008. goalkeeper New Hampshire also graduated its starting goalkeeper who played 88.4 percent of the overall minutes, and Carlie Tarbell (Wakefield, Mass.) is the only one of the three goalies on the 2012 roster with collegiate experience. Tarbell played a total of 180:09 in six games last year as a freshman. She had a 1-0 record with a 0.39 GAA and .917 save percentage. In her only start, Tarbell stopped five of six shots at Vermont to record her first career victory. She did not allow a goal in five relief appearances totaling 110:09. Incoming freshmen Lexy Cole (Belgrade, Maine) and Lauren Gardner (Allentown, Pa.) will battle for playing time. Cole, who recorded 10 shutouts in 17 games as a senior, was an All-State honoree as a junior in 2010. Her other accolades included All-Conference First Team in 2010 and 2011 and All-Conference in ‘09. Gardner was named to the 2011 All-State Academic Team. the schedule New Hampshire, the two-time defending regular-season America East titlist and 2011 tournament champs, plays 10 of its 18 regular-season games at home and that begins with back-to-back games at Memorial Field against UMass (Aug. 24) and Ohio State (Aug. 26). The Buckeyes are one of four opponents who competed in the 2011 NCAA tournament as well as one of seven that were ranked in the final national poll. UNH closes the month of August with a road trip to Brown University, then welcomes Syracuse University – one of the other teams who both advanced to the NCAAs and were nationally ranked – to Durham for a Sept. 7 tilt under the lights. Up next for the Wildcats is a Sept. 9 battle against the Crusaders of Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass., followed by a weekend at home against teams from the opposite coasts – University of the Pacific (Sept. 14) and Northeastern University (Sept. 16); the Huskies will be the third of four teams who advanced to the NCAA tourney and was nationally ranked. The ‘Cats then face another Huskies team that advanced to the NCAAs and was nationally ranked with a Sept. 21 road game against UConn, which went on to the national semifinals. New Hampshire closes the month with road games against Fairfield (Sept. 24), which will mark the America East conference opener, and Drexel (Sept. 30). UNH returns to home and America East action Oct. 5 against Albany, a team the ‘Cats have faced each of the last four America East tournaments. Two days later, UNH travels down the east coast to play ACC representative Virginia, which has a pair of 2012 Olympians on its roster. New Hampshire plays four of its last six regular-season games at Memorial Field and that stretch begins Oct. 12 at home against league and border rival Vermont. The Wildcats are back on the road to face Boston College (Oct. 14) before playing consecutive home contests against Boston University and Providence College. UNH hits the road one last time with a trip up I-95 to the University of Maine and will honor its four-member senior class prior to the Oct. 28 home game against intrastate rival Dartmouth College. America East, which boasted three teams in the 2011 final poll, will advance an NCAA automatic qualifier from its conference tournament that will be held Nov. 2 & 4 at the site of the highest seed. New Hampshire, which has been that highest seed each of the last two years, will look to extend its streak of consecutive league tourney appearances to five.

The Joyce V. Hiller Scholarship Fund has been established at the University of New Hampshire Foundation through the generosity of Joyce V. Hiller. Joyce earned her degree in Physical Education from UNH in 1954 and was inducted into the Hall of Honor in 1998. Over the years, she has been an enthusiastic advocate and generous benefactor for UNH women’s athletics, particularly the field hockey program. The scholarship is given with respect to what Joyce has meant to the field hockey program – a person who is always there with a helping hand and gives selflessly to the program. 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006

Marisa Didio Award

The Marisa Didio Award is bestowed upon a studentathlete who represents the Extra Mile Theory, which states “Some choose the shortest distance doing only what is required. Others give of themselves more freely and go the extra mile.” Marisa Didio served as head coach of the UNH field hockey team for six seasons (1983-87, 1989) and led the Wildcats to the national championship game in 1986. She compiled an 84-25-9 record and also led the women’s lacrosse team to a 31-10 mark – and the University’s only NCAA national championship in 1985 – in three seasons.
