THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE The University of New Hampshire was originally founded as a land-grant college whose mission was to shape and educate citizenry among the state’s farmers, business people and engineers. Today, the University is a land-, sea-, and space-grant university serving a growing undergraduate student body of about 11,000 and a graduate population of 3,000 in addition to 600 full-time faculty members, 92% of which have earned their doctorate degree. The University has grown into a top public research university occupying 2,600 acres of classic living and learning space, while still maintaining the look and feel of a New England liberal arts college with a faculty dedicated to teaching. UNH’s student to faculty ratio registers at 17:1 with 84% of its classes having 50 students or less.

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, N.H. Here it was in connection with Holloway Commons Dartmouth College before moving to Durham in 1893 after Benjamin Thompson bequeathed land and money to further the development of the college. The state legislature then granted its new charter as the University of New Hampshire in 1923. The University hosts nearly 550 international students from more than 40 countries and boasts a population of students from 49 states. Along with over 100 majors offered, UNH encompasses seven schools and colleges that undergraduates can choose from: the College of Liberal Arts, College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, School of Health and Human Services, College of Life Sciences and Agricultures, Whittemore School of Business and Economics, and the Thompson School of Applied Science. And at the very heart of the University’s undergraduate studies is the General Education Program. The GEP is a core program with a breadth of academic subjects that aims to acquaint the student with some of the major modes of thought necessary to understand oneself, others, society, and the world. The University prides itself as being a top 10 entrepreneurial campus (Forbes.com and The Princeton Review) and is among the top 30 universities nationally in science research funding from NASA. UNH is home to the NASA-recognized Space Science Center; the Institute for Study for Earth, Oceans and Space; and the Institute of Marine Science and Engineering. The English program is staffed by an inspiring faculty of winners of the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, the MacArthur Fellowship, the Edgar Allen Poe Award and the Young Poets Award. In addition, the Whittemore School of Business and Economics, established in 1962, was recently selected second among all business schools in a nationwide pool of business school deans. 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.

CAMPUS

In the last few years, several of the athletic facilities have received major upgrades and improvements. In September of 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 Dimond Library major overhauls, including a new playing surface, new lights, new sound system, new bleacher system, new backboards and new scoreboards. Currently, the Paul Sweet Oval is being completely renovated 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. The University also completed a $52 million renovation of Kingsbury Hall, adding 6,000 square feet of student project space for students in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, as well as a $4.5 revamp of Hewitt Hall to expand the School of Health and Human Services. In addition, the new 120,000 square foot Biological Sciences Building, Rudman Hall and the Spaulding Life Sciences Renovation project now provide state-of-the-art teaching and researching laboratories. The University also spent $15 million to complete Morse Hall, a new science and engineering building as well as $8.2 million to modernize the Memorial Union Building. This revision to the existing student union building consisted of several upgrades including top kitchen and dining facilities, two theaters, student mailboxes, lounges and meeting rooms, as well as additional retail spaces such as the University Bookstore. The University has also completed construction of the new dining facility on Main Street, Holloway Commons, as well as the renovation of the Dimond Library. In November of 1995, construction of the $27 million Recreation and Sport Complex reached completion. The new Whittemore Center includes a state-of-the-art 6,500 to 7,500 seat arena for hockey, concerts and convocations, as well as a new three-level recreational sports facility within the structure that had housed the old Snively Arena. Combining the atmosphere of a small New England liberal arts college with the resources and opportunities of a major research university, the University of New Hampshire is a place where all students can find or create their own niche and succeed. While the University offers an extremely broad academic base with an inspiring faculty, it also provides students with thousands of opportunities to get involved, either through athletics, campus recreation, student life, or research. The University is a dynamic community that not only challenges its members academically but also expands their understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity and leads to incredible growth as students, faculty, staff, and as a community.

ADMINISTRATION Dr. Mark Huddleston

President

Mark W. Huddleston is the 19th president of the University of New Hampshire. He brings three decades of experience in public and private higher education as a faculty member, dean, and senior administrator, most recently as president of Ohio Wesleyan University. His term at UNH commenced in July 2007. Huddleston began his academic career at the State University of New York-Buffalo in 1977 as an assistant professor of political science. He then joined the faculty of the University of Delaware in 1980, where he remained for the next 24 years. Dr. Huddleston chaired the Department of Political Science and International Relations and served as associate provost for international programs. He was named dean of the College of Arts and Sciences in 2001, where he managed 45 academic departments and centers with nearly 900 fulltime faculty and staff, and served in that capacity until he was named president of Ohio Wesleyan University in 2004. Having received his bachelor’s degree in political science from SUNY-Buffalo, Huddleston went on to receive both a master’s degree and Ph.D. in political science from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. An author of numerous books and articles, he has been active as a consultant for both the U.S. government and international organizations. He also served as an advisor in Bosnia on rebuilding financial and administrative infrastructures after the Dayton accords. Huddleston was raised in Syracuse and spent 24 years at the University of Delaware in various capacities. For UNH he says, the best years are yet to come—and he is happy that he will be a part of that. Huddleston and his wife, Emma Bricker, have three children, Andy, Kate, and Giles. Marty Scarano Director of Athletics Marty Scarano is in the midst of his 11th year as 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. According to numbers released in 2010, UNH athletics ranks highest in the America East Conference, the Colonial Athletic Association and second nationally among all public institutions, trailing only the U.S. Naval Academy, for the Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of its student athletes with a mark of 97 percent. Of its 20 current sport teams, 14 of them submitted perfect GSRs of 100 percent. UNH finished second in the America East Academic Cup this past season, achieving a 3.16 cumulative grade-point average, which surpassed the league record for highest GPA. There have been over $8.5 million in capitol improvements since his hiring in the summer of 2000. 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. Scarano brought about the completion of the $2.15 million Reggie Atkins Track and Field Facility in the summer of 2000. The addition of a center-ice scoreboard and message board at the Whittemore Center was completed in 2001. In 2002, UNH athletics renovated Memorial Field along with the Bigglestone Plaza and Bremner Field on the former Upper Field. The two fields, which feature state-of-the-art synthetic turf and lighting, were built at a cost of $1.5 million apiece. In addition, construction was completed to enlarge and improve the women’s locker rooms in the UNH Field House. Two other major improvements to benefit UNH’s student-athletes have been the renovation of the Jerry Azumah Performance Center for Strength and Conditioning, which features state-of-the-art strength and conditioning equipment, new offices and design, and a complete overhaul of the Student-Athlete Academic Center. Scarano and the University are also in the midst of the planning and fundraising for a multi-purpose outdoor facility. Scarano has focused on moving UNH athletics into the collegiate national arena. To accomplish that goal, UNH has taken on the task of hosting major NCAA championships. The Wildcat athletic department was host of highly-successful NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Northeast Regionals at the Verizon Wireless Arena (Manchester, N.H.) in 2004, 2007, 2009, and Manchester will once again be the site of the Northeast Regionals in 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, which took place at the Whittemore Center. This past season, men’s and women’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 and field, all competed in the NCAA postseason. Because of these initiatives and accomplishments, UNH athletics has consistently been ranked in the top 90 programs among all Division I institutions in the battle for the NACDA Directors Cup, which is well ahead of nearly all of UNH’s conference opponents. This past season, the Wildcats ranked 72nd out of more than 370 Division I schools with 260.50 points, which were the most in program history, the best in America East and placed the ‘Cats in the top five among FCS teams. UNH ranked behind only Villanova, Princeton, Cornell and Harvard in the FCS subdivision. In New England, the Wildcats finished fourth behind Boston College, Connecticut and Harvard. Scarano’s many accomplishments during his tenure have played a key role in UNH being named one of the Top 20 Athletic Departments in the Country in U.S. News and World Report college athletics rankings in March 2002. UNH’s graduation rate for athletes has maintained levels at or exceeding 90 percent, which puts it among the nation’s best in Division I. The men’s ice hockey team won the regular season Hockey East title in 2002, 2003, 2007, 2008 and 2010, and then advanced to the NCAA Frozen Four in 2002 and 2003. 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. 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 made the NCAA’s in 2000, while women’s lacrosse made “The Big Dance” in 2004 and again in 2008. UNH football returned to national prominence and was ranked No. 1 in the nation for parts of three seasons from 2005-07, made it to the NCAA FCS playoffs the last six years, including the quarterfinals five times in that span, and also won its fifth consecutive game against an FBS opponent in 2009. Additionally, 21 coaches have won 58 Coach of the Year awards during Scarano’s tenure. 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. Scarano held the position of Athletics Director at Colorado College from July 1996 through June 2000. The college’s athletic program excelled both in and out of the classroom under his supervision and six different athletic facilities received renovations, including the Schlessman Pool, Washburn Field, the Carle Weight Room and a new press box at Stewart Field. 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. During Scarano’s tenure at Colorado College, the men’s ice hockey team became a regular at the NCAA men’s ice hockey championships. Prior to his stay in Colorado Springs, Scarano worked for 13 years at Colgate University, where he served as assistant director of athletics, director of physical education, associate director, and senior associate director. Scarano, a native of Pittsburgh, Pa., is a 1978 graduate of Penn State University, where he started his athletic career as assistant ticket manager and the athletics events manager from 1980-83. Scarano holds a Master’s Degree in Environmental History from Colgate. He and his wife, Cydney, have two daughters, Lynden, a junior at UNH, and Corey, and a son, Kyle.

COACHING STAFF Michael Jackson

Head Coach

Michael Jackson enters his 16th 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 14 years, Jackson has compiled a 113-150-25 overall record, including a 37-23-7 record in conference play for a .604 winning percentage, coached five of the program’s top seven leading point scorers and the only AllAmerica First Team selection – goalkeeper Maja Hansen – in UNH history. He has also had 12 America East AllConference 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 12 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 and 2009. Last season, Jackson and the Wildcats qualified for the tournament for the ninth straight season – the longest active streak in the conference. Despite playing without home field advantage against interstate rival Maine in the quarterfinals, the ‘Cats clawed their way back from a one-goal deficit with under eight minutes to play to force overtime before falling in the extra session. 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 AllNew 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.

Cathy Leach

Academic Services

Athletic excellence is one-half of the formula for success in the collegiate experience for University of New Hampshire women’s soccer players.

2010 NEW HAMPSHIRE


2010 OUTLOOK The University of New Hampshire women’s soccer program extended its streak of consecutive America East Championship tournament appearances to nine last season, breaking the all-time conference record. But after consecutive quarterfinal round exits, the Wildcats will look to regain their place as one of the league’s elite teams in 2010. With 21 returning letterwinners and six skilled newcomers hitting town, head coach Michael Jackson and his staff are hopeful they possess the pieces to make a run back into the tournament. With the graduation of leading scorers Shaunna Kaplan (3g, 3a last season) and Morgan Keefe (3g, 4a), the Wildcats bring back 54 percent (25 of 46 points) of their offense, and 10 of their 14 scorers from last seasons, including returning leading scorer Monique Lamotte. The sophomore midfielder is one of the most dynamic athletes on the roster and will be counted upon to carry some of the scoring load after recording five points on two goals and an assist en route to earning America East All-Conference Second Team and All-Rookie honors. Senior Amy Avitabile and junior Steph Gilkenson will also be key cogs in the midfield after coming off injury-plagued seasons in which they combined for just one point. Senior tri-captain Cassie Guerra, who tallied a goal and assist last season, along with senior tri-captain Ashley Avitabile, whose leadership, mobility and goal-scoring mentality will be important for the Wildcats in the middle, will also play important roles in the midfield. Senior Carole LeBlanc, in addition to junior Alli Rozelle and sophomore Allie Coppenrath, who each netted their first career goals last season, will provide even more midfield depth with freshmen Tara Fraprie and Kristi Zarrilli. The 5-foot-6-inch Fraprie, out of Farmington, Conn., was a four-year letterwinner at Farmington High School where she captained the squad her senior year. Fraprie helped guide FHS to the Class L state finals her sophomore year, as well as a conference championship three-peat from her freshman to junior year. The 5-6 Zarrilli, out of Gorham, Maine, was a four-year letterwinner at Gorham High School where she captained the team her senior year. Zarrilli netted 39 goals during her career, which featured state titles her freshman and sophomore seasons, a spot in the state finals her junior season and Western Maine championships her freshman through junior seasons. The Wildcats will possess a versatile attack up front, with juniors Alyssa Michel and Brooke Duchaney, who both scored their first goals in a Wildcat uniform after transferring in last summer, combining with sophomores Drea Nogueira, who appeared in eight games last season, and Chelsea Kuss, who joins the Wildcats after transferring from Division III Nazareth College, to form a front line that can score in a variety of ways. The 5-7 Kuss, a native of Warners, N.Y., started all 19 games last season and was selected to the Empire 8 All-Star Second Team after ranking second on the squad in scoring with 10 points on three goals and four assists. Kuss was a four-year letterwinner at West Genesee High School in Camillus, N.Y., where she scored 72 goals and handed out 45 assists. The ‘Cats return seven of the 11 members from last year’s defensive unit, which allowed just 1.47 goals per game and more than two tallies in a single match just twice. Senior tri-captain Marika Posehn, juniors Kelly Mooney and Jordyn Krall and sophomore Kelly Spencer will anchor the backfield, which will be counted on to help protect the three young goalkeepers on the roster. Posehn and Krall, who could also see time in the midfield, tallied the first points of their career last season on a goal and two assists and a goal and an assist, respectively, while Mooney made the America East All-Conference Second Team and Spencer was very impressive in her rookie season. Junior Taylor Finley, who continues to improve, and sophomores Lyndsay Pallotta and Grace Marden will all provide depth in the back along with three newcomers. Junior Jill Brown, who missed all but two games last season, will continue to try and get healthy as she aims to have an impact this year. Freshmen Kelsi O’Neil, and Katie Boyle both arrive in Durham this season looking to help the club. The 5-9 O’Neil, from just down the road in Hampton, N.H., was a four-year letterwinner at Saint Thomas Aquinas High School (Dover, N.H.), where she captained the squad her senior year. O’Neil helped lead STA to its first two Class I state titles her freshman and senior seasons, as well as a Final Four appearance her sophomore campaign. The 5-7 Boyle, from Cupertino, Calif., was a four-year letterwinner and a two-year captain at Cupertino High School. After graduating Ally Yost, who owns the fourth best goals against average in program history, the Wildcats are left with three young goalkeepers in net for the upcoming season. Sophomore Sarah Dobush, who saw just over 55 minutes of action in two matches last season, returns with the most collegiate experience of any of the Wildcat goalkeepers. Classmate Erin Jackson is also back after not appearing in a game last season. Pushing those two for the starting job will be freshman Erica Correa. The 5-8 Correa is a Cheshire, Conn., native, who was a four-year letterwinner at Cheshire High School where she went 60-13-5, including 39 shutouts. Correa helped guide her squad to the state finals her junior year, as well as SCC conference crowns in her sophomore and senior seasons. With a solid core of older leaders and a tremendous amount of young talent that has gained another year of experience, the Wildcats are well positioned to extend their already-record America East tournament appearance streak to 10 games, and make a deep run into that tournament, with their sights set on an America East title and a trip to the NCAA tournament.

2009 year in review The University of New Hampshire women’s soccer program set an all-time record last season after extending their America East Championship tournament appearances streak to nine fter earning the No. 6 seed in the tournament with a 3-5 conference record. Unfortunately for the team, it made its second consecutive quarterfinal exit with a 2-1 overtime loss at Maine. After losing over 65 percent of its offense, including two-time Striker of the Year Michelle Sheehan and Midfielder of the Year Caitlin Whelan, the Wildcats were not as explosive on the offense end like in years past, but instead relied on their solid goalkeeping and young defense. The outcome was a team that held opponents to just 1.47 goals per game and allowed more than two goals in a single contest just twice. With only one player hitting double digits in points, however, the Wildcats suffered 10 one-goal losses and finished the year 4-14-1 overall. The Wildcats won their opener at Rhode Island, 20, beating the Rams on the road for the first time since 2004. After that, however, the ‘Cats would not find the win column again for the next 10 games, going 0-9-1 during that span. The ‘Cats dropped a 2-0 decision at 18th-ranked St. John’s, and then scored with one minute remaining to force overtime with Siena, but eventually fell in double overtime, 3-2. After suffering a 1-0 defeat at Harvard, the team finally opened their home schedule, but dropped another 1-0 decision, this time to Northeastern in double overtime. The squad then played 110 scoreless minutes with UMass before heading to Colorado for a twogame road trip. Colorado College welcomed the ‘Cats in with a 4-0 win before Air Force pulled out a 1-0 victory two days later. UNH fell to Holy Cross, 2-1, when it returned home, and then opened America East play with a 2-0 loss at Stony Brook. The Wildcats dropped another 1-0 match to rival Boston

University at home before pulling out their first conference win of the year, 2-1, at Hartford. Albany arrived in Durham having lost seven of eight to UNH all-time, but squeaked out a 1-0 win. The Wildcats suffered a 2-1 loss at intrastate rival Dartmouth, but won two of the next three to help their case for the sixth and final playoff spot. A 3-0 win at Vermont and a 3-2 win at UMBC, sandwhiched around a 2-0 loss to Maine, gave the Wildcats some momentum heading into the tournament until Binghamton spoiled Senior Day for the Wildcats with a 1-0 win in the season finale. The 10th and final onegoal loss of the season, this one coming at Maine in the quarterfinal round of the tournament, de-railed the Wildcats’ season short of the semifinal round for just the second time in the past eight years. Prior to the tournament, the Wildcats were once again in the mix for conference hardware as senior Shaunna Kaplan, sophomore Kelly Mooney and freshman Monique Lamotte were named to the America East All-Conference Second Team. Lamotte was also selected to the All-Rookie Team for her solid effort. UNH once again performed at a high level in the classroom as well, led by senior goalkeeper and mechanical engineering major Ally Yost, who was named to the America East All-Academic Team and had a 3.94 grade point average that was the highest on the 12member squad. For the fourth year in a row and fifth out of the last sixth, the team itself received the NSCAA Team Academic Award with a 3.20 combined GPA. The 2009 season marked the final year in a UNH uniform for seniors Morgan Keefe, Alex Hastings, Jenna Duncan, Meg Wiley, Kaplan and Yost. Kaplan finished eighth all-time on UNH’s assists list (13), while Yost’s 1.23 goals against average was the fourth best in program history.
