Tom Fargo of the Dedham Transcript has a great story on Dedham, Mass. natives Katie Kelly and Sydney Stoll wrapping up their successful athletic careers at UMass in field hockey and soccer, respectively.

"Former Dedham High stars Katie Kelly and Sydney Stoll each left Whiting Avenue as the all-time leading scorers in their signature sports. But beyond their knack for producing goals, it was a relentless drive that made them stand apart in Marauder uniforms on the field hockey and soccer pitches."

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.
