1981 REFLECTION - The birth of a national postseason competition for women’s athletics came from the passing of Title IX in 1972 and as 277 Division I institutions sponsored women’s sports entered the NCAA in 1981. It would be in that same year when, out of 95 participating Division I field hockey schools, the University of Connecticut would be selected to host the first-ever NCAA Division I Field Hockey Championship at Memorial Stadium on November 21 & 22, 1981 in Storrs, Connecticut. During that historical year in women’s college sports, under new national governance, seventh-year head coach Diane Wright would guide her Connecticut team to a 15-2-3 overall record and a berth in the home-hosted contest. The underdog UConn upset top-seeded and top-ranked Massachusetts, 4-1, in the championship final to seal the title for the Huskies. They became the first-ever NCAA Champion in the sport, the school’s first-ever NCAA National Championship team (men’s or women’s) and the first-ever college women’s team to be crowned as NCAA Division I Champions. UConn standouts Laurie Decker, Lynn Kotler, Lorie McCollum and Rose Smith were named to the NCAA All-Tournament Team, while Decker and McCollum became Connecticut field hockey’s first All-American selections. Since the 1981 National Championship season, Connecticut has qualified for 18 of the 26 national postseason tournaments held, with eight appearances in the NCAA National Semifinals. A 1985 National Championship would be added to the program’s growing list of accomplishments.

George J. Sherman Family Sports Complex
he University of Connecticut field hockey program plays its home contests at the George J. Sherman FamilySports Complex, a $3.7 million athletic facility located adjacent to Harry A. Gampel Pavilion in the heart of UConn’s main campus in Storrs. A financial gift of more than $650,000 to UConn’s Athletic Development Fund by Lottie K. Sherman of West Hartford helped provide the necessary funding for the project, and the entire complex bears the name of Lottie K. Sherman’s husband, George J. Sherman.

T

Opened during the 1995-96 academic year, the George J. Sherman Family Sports Complex features a state-of-theart artificial turf field (nylon knit on the elastic layer over a vertical drain base), giving the UConn field hockey program one of the finest on-campus collegiate facilities in the nation. The complex also includes an eight-lane, 400-meter allweather track surface, as well as seating for 2,000 fans, full-field lighting, a press box and a scoreboard with electronic message capabilities. In its 12 seasons on its new artificial turf home field, the UConn field hockey team has posted an impressive 120-19 home record, including 24 wins over nationally-ranked squads such as:

American, Boston College, Boston University, Harvard, Louisville, Massachusetts, Michigan, Michigan State, New Hampshire, Northeastern, Ohio State, Old Dominion, Princeton, Penn State and Syracuse. Connecticut and the George J. Sherman Family-Sports Complex played host to the NCAA Division I Field Hockey Championship in 1997. The complex has also hosted the 1996 and 2000 BIG EAST Conference Tournaments, as well as first and second round action of the 1996, 1998, 1999 and 2003 NCAA Tournaments, which sent some of the nation’s top teams to UConn’s state-of-the-art facility.

Nine-Time BIG EAST Regular Season Champions Nine-Time BIG EAST Tournament Champions

LOOKING TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP
Huskies return wealth of talent to go along with a gifted freshman class as it looks to repeat last year’s postseason run

ptimism and enthusiasm surround this year's University of Connecticut field hockey season as the Huskies, fresh off their deepest postseason run since 1999, return a wealth of talented and experienced players that give the program high hopes for 2007. Connecticut returns 17 letterwinners and nine starters from last season's squads that posted the program's fourth 20-win season, captured the BIG EAST Tournament title and advanced to the NCAA National Semifinals - before falling to eventual national champion Maryland in penalty strokes. "I think everyone associated with the team is very optimistic, but it is just important to realize how difficult it is to get back to the national semifinals, UConn head coach Nancy Stevens said. "The event has been dominated by ACC teams and it's a difficult road back. I don't think anyone in our program is taking that for granted. We do feel we will have a successful season but it will be a lot of hard work." "I think it's important that we took that step," Stevens said. "Two years ago we lost in double-overtime before advancing the following year and losing in that round in triple overtime. If we can get back to the national semifinals, I think we will be ready to take that next step to the championship game.” To help with the challenge of replicating last year's success, the Huskies will also have a solid group of incoming freshmen to both push the returning veterans and provide supplemental talent in all areas. While the newcomers will be learning to play at a new level, expectations are high among members of the coaching staff for this season's incoming class. "We are fortunate that we have several incoming freshmen that should be able to contribute right away and will vie for starting positions, so we are in a good position," Stevens said.

O

UConn will employ the same philosophy that it used last year to rack up 21 wins, known as the "Total Field Hockey" concept. The strategy is reliant on the versatility of a roster, as it is based on the concept that players need to be capable of playing multiple positions in the same game. For example, the backs are expected to be a more focal part of the offense as they will be relied on to push forward to help create scoring chances. "We believe we have the personnel as it takes a lot of speed, stamina and conditioning to play Total Hockey. That is the goal, but it is a big challenge," Stevens said. "Our goal is to have the players moving from the back into the midfield, from the midfield to the forward and penetrate the circle. We will continue to emphasize that with overlapping backs, so side backs in particular can really contribute to the attack." This style of play will be aided by perhaps the strongest part of UConn’s game - its defensive unit. Leading the charge for this experienced group will be reigning BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Year Jennifer Kleinhans. She will be joined by Katie Scully and Meghan Wheeler on a group that ranked fourth nationally in 2006 with a scant goals allowed average of 0.93. Adding to the depth of the defense will be Katie Semanoff, Shannon Slaughter, Gina Uguccioni, Dani Griep and Amy Williams, each are expected to compete for a starting slot in addition to significant playing time. "With the opening with Barbie (Steffen) graduating we are going to restructure the backs a little bit," Stevens said.

UNIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT 2007 SEASON PREVIEW
18 NCAA Tournament Berths 32 First-Team All-America choices "Some of the key players returning include Katie (Scully), Meghan (Wheeler) and Kleinhans. We also expect both Semanoff and Williams to be vying for a pivotal role. We have a lot backs to choose from. Right now, we have a structure in place and we will decide in preseason who will finally get those positions." While the Huskies seem to be all set on the defensive end, they also will have no shortage of talent in the playmaking area as both of their top goal scorers from last season's squad return in 2006 Honda Award Finalist Lizzy Peijs and the MVP of the 2006 BIG EAST Tournament Lauren Aird. The duo combined for 45 goals a year ago - more than fifty percent of Connecticut's goal scoring output. The Huskies will be turning to a number of additional players to share some of the goal scoring burden, with the focus on experienced returning players becoming more involved in the attack. "Our two top scorers return in Lizzy (Peijs) and Lauren (Aird)," Stevens said. "They are both such gifted scorers and they have great skill sets so they can score on the forehand and the reverse, which is difficult for the goalkeeper to predict." We are challenging some of our more experienced players to step up and score more," Stevens said. "We think they have the ability to do that. Kristin Galuski was our high scorer in 2005 and we are looking for her to contribute more in her fifth year. Nikki Harmony and Lindsey Leck are also being challenged to contribute on the scoring end as well and we think they have the ability to do so." Some of the aforementioned players will also be critical to the Huskies continuing their tradition of solid midfield play. "We have always felt that our midfield play has been the strongest in the country and I feel that it will continue to be so," Stevens said. "Peijs, a first-team All-America choice, will continue to dominate in the midfield and several other players on our roster will get to contribute." "Wheeler and Kleinhans will get to move forward a lot from their back positions given our philosophy. Also, Leck is an outstanding player for us that will see time both in the midfield and at forward. We are really excited about our midfield play in terms of both talent and depth." One thing the Huskies hope not to repeat from last season is the injury they suffered at the goalkeeper position that forced the team's opening day starter, Andrea Mainiero, to miss a 10-game stretch. That injury did pay dividends for Connecticut, however, as Briana Koza established herself as a more than capable replacement and went on to post three shutouts and allow an average of 0.84 goals per contest over her 13 games. Both players return to give UConn some stability in the net and will be complimented by redshirt freshman Allison Karpiak. "We are really fortunate to have two outstanding goalkeepers in Andrea (Mainiero) and Briana (Koza)," Stevens said. "Mainiero won the starting role prior to being injured and Koza stepped in and was stellar. So once again, we return two outstanding goalkeepers and feel we are in really good shape. Allison (Karpiak) is in an understudy role and is progressing nicely, which is nice for our depth and future." One of the biggest advantages of this year's team is that they only have to replace two starters from last year's successful run - although they were critical pieces to the puzzle.

Meagan Hoffmann was the steadying presence for the Huskies in the midfield for four seasons and Barbie Steffen departs after starting all 25 games at back in 2006. "Fortunately, we have a wealth of talent and what is interesting is that we have several people that can play those positions, which makes for a competitive and spirited practice," Stevens said. "I think it is a good motivator over the summer, but we will see who comes back in the best shape and who has played a lot over the summer." "We have players that were in reserve that are ready to step up," Stevens said. "Dani Griep had a good spring, Gina Ugucionni and Amy Williams also made a statement with a good spring as did Rachel Sauer, a senior, who played very well in the spring. We have a good group that is ready and wants to step in there and take those positions." It is those options that Stevens refers to that could end up being the biggest strength for Connecticut this season in their quest for a return to the NCAA National Semifinals - increased depth and experience. "Our overall depth is important as one of the biggest obstacles in getting back to the national semifinals is overcoming injuries," Stevens said. "When you have the depth and you have an unfortunate injury, you should still be able to move forward. We saw this depth show last season when Andrea (Mainiero) was injured and Brianna (Koza) stepped in and played outstanding for a long and important stretch. We feel that in all areas, whether it be at forward, midfield, back or in goal, that we have the depth that can help us get through a stretch of injuries." Standing in UConn's way in the regular season is the usual cast of national opponents, in addition to the always difficult BIG EAST slate. While the Huskies won a number of crucial home contests a year ago to propel them to postseason success, they will face a new challenge this season as a large number of those match ups with ranked opponents will come on opposing turf. "The difference this year compared to last year is that a good portion of the big games are on the road," Stevens said. "We have the additional challenge of playing outstanding teams like Penn State, Michigan and Old Dominion on its home turf. It is a tougher road when you are on the road, but those early season challenges should help us as the season progresses." "We are fortunate that we are one of the strongest conferences in the country,” Stevens said. "We are looking for a tough run to the title with Providence and Louisville looking to defend after sharing last year's title. Syracuse has a new coach, which will bring them championship experience. Also, the rest of the teams are much improved with good recruiting classes coming in. I think that this will be a very tight race for the regular season and will lead to a very competitive BIG EAST Tournament."

“During the recruiting process, we work hard to identify players who have a passion for the game. Our role as coaches is to create a supportive environment and give our players the freedom to reach their full potential. We encourage unselfish play. When you give up the ball to a teammate, you will always get it back. Putting the team first is the surest path to a championship.”

Nancy Stevens, Head Coach

“Every field hockey player will comment on how fulfilling and rewarding of an experience it was to play for their particular college. They will say how the lessons learned, the friends made, and the memories shared will stay with them forever. The same is true at UConn, but what separates UConn from other programs is the staff, who somehow manage a fun and nurturing, yet get-down-to-business attitude. Nancy Stevens’ unrelenting competitive edge inspired me to believe that my hard work will accomplish amazing feats both on and off the field. “

Two-Time All-American Katie Stephens (‘01)
“Walking out to the game field wearing the UConn colors is only one of the proud memories I have of being a Husky. In high school, this was what I dreamed about, taking my play to the next level and becoming a part of a union where everyone has the same dream- to become a champion. Not only did we become champions, but we survived the ups and downs of working our hardest and making sacrifices together. Playing for Nancy Stevens and for UConn taught me many lessons in leadership, friendship, trust and dedication.”

“Playing field hockey for UConn is an experience I will always treasure. Of course the memories and friendships will stay with me forever and so will the lessons learned from all the dedication and hard work. But what stands out the most in my mind as I look back on the past four years is that playing field hockey at UConn was fun. Practice was the time of day I looked forward to and putting on that Husky uniform for game time was a true honor. It is a tribute to Nancy Stevens and her staff and also to my teammates that we were able to play in an elite program and at such a high level while still being able to enjoy the moment. I will always be thankful for that.”

“Looking back upon my career at UConn brings a smile to my face and warmth to my heart. They were the most memorable years of my life, where I learned the most important lessons of life, including the value of friendship and family. I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunities I had at UConn, both on and off the playing field. I will never forget how proud I was to put on a Husky uniform and represent the University of Connecticut. We valued not only our performance, but our relationships as well.”

Three-Time All-American Laura Klein (‘01)

All-American Meagan Hoffmann (‘06)
“Playing field hockey for one of the top athletic and academic institutions in the nation is something I will always be grateful for. It was one big adrenaline rush. All of the hard work and determination that my coaching staff and teammates possessed showed through until our very last moment together on the field. Thinking back about all of the old memories- the success and the adversity- I would not change a thing.” “Reflecting back on my time at Connecticut makes me realize how special those four years really were. Through field hockey, I have gained so many precious memories and experiences that I will forever carry in my heart and mind. Many people that I have met there are now my closest friends and an extended part of my family. My years as a collegiate athlete are exactly as I dreamed they would be and I wouldn’t give them up for the world.”

HUSKIES EARN BERTH IN NATIONAL SEMIS
UConn follows BIGEAST Tourney Title With NCAATourney Run

The 2006 UConn Huskies registered a 21-4 overall mark, captured the program’s third consecutive BIG EAST Tournament title and advanced to the NCAA Semifinals for the first time since 1999. HUSKIES SAVE THEIR BEST FOR THE POSTSEASON: While Connecticut came up short in its quest for at least a share of the BIG EAST Regular Season title for the first time since 2001, the Huskies made up for it with one of their most successful postseason runs in recent memory. UConn’s postseason success began with a come-frombehind two-goal rally in the BIG EAST Semifinals against Louisville, before it wrapped up the conference crown by defeating Providence in the championship game on a penalty stroke by Lizzy Peijs with 39 seconds remaining in regulation. The Huskies went on the the NCAA Tournament where they recorded back-to-back 3-1 wins over Boston University and Princeton in the opening two rounds to advance to their first NCAA National Semifinals since 1999. Connecticut came up just short in moving on to the 2006 NCAA Championship game as it dropped a 2-1 decision in penalty strokes to eventual national champion Maryland. UCONN EARNS EIGHTH NATIONAL SEMIFINAL BERTH: The Huskies opening round 2006 NCAA Tournament wins over Boston University and Princeton allowed them to advance to the NCAA National Semifinals for the first time since 1999 and the eighth time in the program’s history. UConn’s 2-1 penalty stroke loss to Maryland moved its alltime mark in NCAA Semifinal appearances to 4-4. UCONN EARNS 18TH NCAA TOURNEY BERTH: The Huskies qualified for the NCAA Tournament for the fifth consecutive season and the 18th time in the program’s history after earning an automatic bid to the 2006 NCAA Tournament. The five-year streak of qualifying for the NCAA Tournament ties for the second-longest such stretch in Connecticut field hockey history - joining the skein of five straight appearances from 1996-2000 and six straight from 1981-1986. UConn is 23-16 (.590) all-time in NCAA Tournament games and has earned a berth in the event during 10 of the last 11 seasons. The Huskies have advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals 14 times, the semifinals eight times (including 2006) and have won a pair of national titles (1981, 1985). AIRD TIES RECORD EN ROUTE TO BIG EAST MOP: UConn sophomore Lauren Aird was recognized as the Most Outstanding Player of the 2006 BIG EAST Championship marking the 10th time a Connecticut player has earned the honor. Aird’s selection marks the fourth time in the last five years that a UConn player has been selected for the award. Aird earned the honor after tying the BIG EAST Tournament single-game goal mark with three in the championship game win over Providence.

MARK R. SHENKMAN TRAINING CENTER
Thanks to alumnus Mark R. Shenkman, the University of Connecticut now joins the ranks of major universities nationwide with an indoor training facility that is utilized by the football program, other varsity sports and recreational services. His $2.5 million gift, one of the largest ever to the UConn Division of Athletics, built an intercollegiate and recreational service facility that serves the entire UConn community. The 85,000 square foot Mark R. Shenkman Training Center is the newest and most modern facility of its kind in the country. Construction on the facility began in the fall of 2004 and the Mark R. Shenkman Training Center opened in the summer of 2006. Featuring a 120-yard long state-of-the-art FieldTurf playing surface, an 18,000 square foot strength and conditioning area, and state-of-the-art video capabilities, the indoor training center provides UConn's football team with the most technologically advanced training equipment. The Mark R. Shenkman Training Center becomes the University's first project certified as meeting the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards for "green" buildings. LEED designation is a process certifying that a building project meets a wide range of environmentally friendly criteria. This new construction marks the first college or university athletic project in the nation to earn the designation. A resident of Greenwich, Connecticut, Shenkman graduated from the Wilbraham & Monson Academy in Wilbraham, Mass. He received a bachelor's degree in political science from UConn in 1965 followed by a master's degree in business administration from The George Washington University. Shenkman is the founder and president of Shenkman Capital Management, Inc., a registered investment advisor with offices in New York City and Stamford, Connecticut. He served on the UConn Foundation's Board of Directors for nine years and is now an emeritus director. He is also a member of that group's investment committee. Shenkman was elected to the UConn School of Business Hall of Fame in 2002 and has endowed a classroom and the eCommerce Chair for the business school.

SPORTS MEDICINE
The Department of Sports Medicine within the University of Connecticut Division of Athletics works as an integrated multidisciplinary team whose purpose is to provide an optimal, safe environment for each of UConn’s intercollegiate student-athletes to train and participate in their sport. The staff takes great pride in the individual attention paid to each student-athlete. The Sports Medicine staff is devoted to preventing injury, rapidly diagnosing and treating injury, and maximizing athletic performance. The disciplines of athletic training, strength and conditioning, sports medicine, orthopedic sports medicine, optometry, nutrition, exercise physiology, and psychology work in concert to provide comprehensive care for each student-athlete. The Department of Sports Medicine at the University of Connecticut administers to the daily needs of 600 male and female intercollegiate student-athletes who are competing in 24 different varsity programs. The Department of Sports Medicine at the University of Connecticut plays a critical role in assuring that all UConn student-athletes have 24-hour access to the finest medical support and quality health care possible. Through patient care and ongoing research and education, the department continues to provide Husky teams a competitive edge from the medical perspective.

STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING
The strength and conditioning program for the University of Connecticut field hockey student-athletes is under the supervision of UConn Strength and Conditioning Coordinator Jerry Martin. The Strength and Conditioning staff services all 24 of Connecticut’s intercollegiate sports. UConn field hockey players have the use of two different weight rooms in the Harry A. Gampel Pavilion and the newly remodeled Hugh S. Greer Field House. In all, there are over 8,000 square feet of weight training facilities available for all UConn athletes. The weight room in the Harry A. Gampel Pavilion is a free weight facility and supplies the Husky players with areas in which to perform their power and Olympic lifts. The facility in the Greer Field House is fitted with more free weights so that the UConn players can incorporate circuit training, speed training, and heavy negative workouts into their total strength training program. Each program can be manipulated in order to fulfill the specific needs of the individual. Specific testing is done to each player to monitor progress in strength, power, body composition, anaerobic conditioning, and flexibility. These tests provide the coaches and medical staff with an accurate athletic profile on each field hockey player. Amanda Kimball (pictured) is responsible for coordinating the UConn field hockey team’s strength and conditioning program.

CPIA
The Counseling Program for Intercollegiate Athletics
The University of Connecticut is committed to each of its student-athletes as a total person. Participation in athletics is important, but it represents only one aspect of an athlete’s college experience. Impressively, for the past five years the Connecticut student-athlete retention rate has been 99.0 percent. The University's commitment to the student-athlete is a dual one. Participation in athletics is not viewed as an obstacle to the attainment of one's educational goals, rather it is seen as a complementary activity. They support each other. Athletic excellence is stressed, but academic achievement is never compromised - indeed, it is given the utmost priority. Ingrid Hohmann (pictured) is the point person for the UConn field hockey team within the CPIA.
