Recently in Renee Suter Category

Jason Kates with the Daily Collegian spoke to UMass field hockey junior midfielder Renee Suter and head coach Carla Tagliente recently to discuss Suter's emergence as a scoring threat for the Minutewomen as Suter has provided 11 points on five goals and an assist in the previous four games.

It all started for sophomore midfielder Renee Suter on Oct. 6 in a non-conference game against in-state rival Boston University.

With the No. 10 Massachusetts field hockey team trailing 1-0 in the second half, Suter stepped up and smashed two penalty corner goals to give her team the 2-1 lead, and eventually the win.

Suter, who has started 12 out of 16 games this season, now has five goals in four games and hopes to extend this offensive display well into Atlantic-10 play...

Field Hockey's Big Day vs. Vermont

| No TrackBacks

After the final horn to Friday's field hockey contest against Vermont sounded, the Minutewomen cleared the field with a 10-1 blowout victory over the visiting Catamounts. Nicole Cordero, Kim Young and Thando Zono totaled multi-goal performances against Vermont, with Zono adding a pair of a assists to lead the game with six points. Molly MacDonnell, Brooke Sabia, Alexa Sikalis and Renee Suter each added one goal during play. In addition to Zono, Hannah Prince, Sikalis and Callie Sweigart each recorded a pair of assists while Marisa Dunn, Kate Heineman and Noralie Weisthuis chipped in an assist each.


The show of offensive force by UMass is rarely seen at the collegiate level and had only occurred in the history of the program on a few occasions. Here is a look at how rare the feat of totaling double-digit goals is in the history of the illustrious program...

  • Previously, the UMass Minutewomen field hockey program has recorded 10 or more goals in only two contests in the 38 years the program has existed. Once on Oct. 25, 1979 against Smith College (11-1 victory) and again on Oct. 25, 2009 at Saint Louis (10-1 victory).


  • After a 30-year span of not recording double-digit goals (1979-2009; 650 games), the Minutewomen went only 53 contests since routing Saint Louis in 2009 before matching the feat against Vermont.


  • Since the 11-1 win over Smith College pre-dates the modern collegiate athletics era, the 10-goal outing against Vermont ranks as only the second such double-digit goal effort against a NCAA Division-I opponent.


  • In all of Division-I field hockey this season there have only been seven games where a team has scored more than 10 goals, with UMass' performance against Vermont tying for the second-most this season behind Virginia's 14-goal outing vs. Towson.


  • In tandem with the number of goals scored, UMass recorded a tie for the second-most points notched in a single game with the win over Vermont. The 31 points by the Minutewomen has been equaled this year on four occasions across Division-I, while only being eclipsed once (Virginia vs. Towson).


The Minutewomen return to action at Garber Field with a 2 p.m. contest against the University of Maine on Sunday, Sept. 30. Admission to all home field hockey contests is free.
