Returning to campus Saturday, Sept. 5 with dreams of a second straight victory over the varsity squad, 10 former field hockey stalwarts (nine of whom arrived in time to play) took to the turf on Smith Field.  It just wasn't to be this year, despite the additions of coaches Jen Lane and Patti Klecha-Porter to the alumnae roster, as the varsity pulled away in the second half for a 6-1 win.  Back for the game were (kneeling, L to R) Maddie Rottman '08, Melissa Courtemanche '03, Marley Aloe '03 and Jen Honen '86 as well as (standing, L to R) Cindy Nye '87, Adrienne Shea '08, Laura Pfeiffenberger '03, assistant coach Jen Lane, assistant coach Lindsay Wasserman '03, Linda Polonsky '82 and Val Cotler '84.
