Collegian: Field Hockey's New Defensive Approach

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
A lot has been made early in the field hockey season of new head coach Carla Tagliente's attacking style of play that she has brought to the Minutewomen, but as Matt Strong of the Massachusetts Daily Collegian points out in Friday's edition, Tagliente has also brought a new style of play to the defense that the group is beginning to adjust well to. Strong mentions how assistant coach Roz Ellis has been crucial in mentoring the defense and talks to former UMass four-year-starter Jaime Bourazeris, who is helping the team this season.

With the new defensive approach comes a new mindset, which incorporates an offensive attitude. It gives the defense a chance to push the ball up the field, thus creating more shots and scoring opportunities.

"The biggest key as it is with any defensive structure is to communicate and stay organized," said Bourazeris.

In addition to the men's basketball season preview in today's Daily Collegian, Pete Vasquez ran a feature on field hockey senior Jaime Bourazeris. Vasquez writes of Bourazeris journey and rise as one of the Atlantic 10's best defenders. "She's a coach's dream," (High school coach Kori) Brocking said. "She's going to execute whatever goal it is and she's going to achieve it. That's just the type of person she is."

Also in today's Collegian is a feature on freshman Lindsay Bowman, written by Michael Wood. "She was one of the latest recruits we picked up," (Head Coach Justine) Sowry says. "What we had noticed about her was her athleticism and her competitive spirit or nature."

A fantastic season for the UMass field hockey team came to a close on Saturday when Justine Sowry's Minutewomen, winners of the Atlantic 10 Championship and an NCAA at-large team, fell to No. 1 Maryland, 4-2 at the Terps Field Hockey Complex. Maryland, the winners of three of the last five National Championships, jumped out to an early 2-0 lead and led 4-1 at halftime, but the Minutewomen outplayed the host team for the latter part of the first half and almost all of the second half. Seniors Makaela Potts and Jaime Bourazeris netted the UMass goals in the final game in the Maroon & White for them and senior captain Katie Kelly.
