Head coach: Katie Lange (sixth season)
Last year: 6-11, 4-3 (tied for fifth in Capital Athletic Conference)
Athletes to watch: Lange elected not to name athletes to watch.
Key personnel loss: M Susan Smith
Strengths: Lange mentioned two things will be strong for the Seahawks during this 2012 season, leadership and new talent.
Weaknesses: However, the new talent is a double-edged sword as some of that new talent includes first-year players. These first-year players are new to collegiate-level field hockey so the inexperience surrounding their talent is a concern for Lange.
Coach’s comments: “My goal for the players is always for them to have a significant positive experience. With that, hopefully we will win games and contend for the conference championship.”
Key games: Sept. 22 vs. Salisbury, Sept. 28 at Wesley (Del.), Oct. 17 at Mary Washington (Va.)
