Personal: Born Nov., 7, 1993 to René and Titia Weusthuis ... Has one sister, Annelot.
Tagliente on Weusthuis: "Noralie will be an exciting player to watch for the next four years. She comes from a hockey family with her mother, father and older sister all having played. She has competed at an elite level in The Netherlands from a very early age. Playing primarily at center back/defensive center midfield, Noralie's skill level and leadership have raised the level of those around her. She is a charismatic young woman, and her knowledge of the game is quite impressive. We are really excited to have Noralie join the UMass field hockey family."
