What are your expectations for the team this year? Bronwen Schumacher: Win. It’s pretty well established that we are now where we were after spring break of last year, and with that power, I think that we can easily beat the people who we lost to last year: DePauw [U...

But we are going ...

November 7, 2014

How have the first few meets of the season gone? Jack Redell: We’ve been training really hard so far and that’s definitely taken its toll. Everyone is pretty sore. Given that, everybody is racing really well, and we’re much further along than we were at this point last season. Liam Oznowich: During our first meet against Hiram [College], we killed it. We won all the races. Even though [our meet against The College of Wooster] didn’t go as well as we wanted, our times were a lot better com...

October 10, 2014

Neither of you played field hockey last year. What has it been like coming back to the team this season? Megan Bautista: I think what’s really unique about our positions on the field hockey team and the field hockey program in general is just how accommodating they have been thus far. That is something that is completely unorthodox within athletics. For once, I don’t feel like I have to apologize for being involved in other areas of campus and for putting my priorities out there clearly. I’m...
