    Kaylee's Corner: Get To Know the 'Cats

    | No Comments | No TrackBacks
    It has been a crazy past two weeks of field hockey for the 'Cats! After losing to Indiana for our first Big Ten match of the season, we beat then #7 UNH two days later--giving me family bragging rights because my sister starts for them. This past weekend, we defeated Michigan State in the pouring rain 3-0 and then drove to Penn State. After coming back from being down 2 goals at halftime, we lost in a heartbreaking overtime. We hope to see Penn State and Indiana again in the Big Ten Tournament!

    Since we have five freshman and five seniors this year, I figured we could get to know the oldest and youngest classes of NUFH a little bit better. Claire Thompson, Jaimie Orrico, Regan Mooney, Megan Jamieson and myself compose the senior class and Morgan Joffe, Babs Van de Mierop, Kirsty Crampton-Smith, Maddy Carpenter, and Mary Susan Bro are the freshies.
