Setbacks won't keep Gorham grad from goal

Portland Press Herald staff writer Steve Craig caught up with Gorham, Maine, native and UMass field hockey senior  Hannah Prince to highlight Prince's success in the college game as well as internationally. The 5-foot-3 defender has started every contest since her arrival at the University of Massachusetts in 2010 and had the opportunity to compete with the United States U-21 National Team at the Junior World Cup in Germany this summer alongside Minutewomen teammate Sam Carlino.

University of Massachusetts field hockey coach Carla Tagliente says she isn't sure how far her senior captain Hannah Prince of Gorham can go in the game.

"But she won't ever be let down by her own effort," said Tagliente, a three-time All-American at Maryland and former USFHA Player of the Year. "Nothing really deters her and there are very few players that really have that sort of drive."

A defender for No. 7 nationally ranked Massachusetts, Prince is coming off a summer stint as a member of the United States U21 team that competed in the Junior World Cup in Germany, which finished seventh among 16 teams...
