The Yeowomen had a dominant showing in their double-header home opener this past weekend. After beginning their season with five tough games on the road, playing at home provided a much needed a change of pace. Despite a narrow loss against the nationally ranked DePauw University Tigers on Saturday, the Yeowomen handily outdid the Earlham College Quakers 3–0 the following day. On Saturday, the Yeowomen’s defensive unit held the Tigers to an impressive final score of 2–1, even though the Tigers’ offense averaged 3.61 goals per game last season. In her season debut, junior Claire Yeske returned to the field with force, scoring the lone goal for the Yeowomen. “We knew this was a must-win game for us,”...

With the addition of eight first-years to the 10 returning players, the field hockey team is ready to start their 2013 season.

What is your field hockey experience? I have been involved in field hockey for 25 years as a player; I started when I was 5. I played in England for some quite prestigious clubs … I was on junior teams for the Ipswich Ladies Hockey Club. I also played for the Wimbledon Club, which is the oldest ladies club in England, and the Colchester Hockey Club in my hometown. I played two years at Miami [University of Ohio]. I started my first game freshman year and lettered. Due to some issues within the program I went back to London and my senior year [at Roehampton University of Surrey] in London … we made national finals and lost to St. Andrews. And we think we may have played against Kate Middleton. What has your coaching career been...
