Aug. 20, 2014
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Having won at least a share of the last two Big Ten regular season titles, the Nittany Lion field hockey team returns six starters from last season's squad.
Head coach Charlene Morett-Curtiss and the Nittany Lions tallied a 13-6 overall mark in 2013, which included a trip to the NCAA Tournament. Midfielder Laura Gebhart and goalkeeper Kylie Licata return as 2013 first-team All-Big Ten honorees. Senior forward Taylor Herold led the Nittany Lions with 30 points last season. In all, Penn State will field nine seniors in 2014.
The Nittany Lions open the season on Aug. 29 against Old Dominion on the sparkling new turf at the Penn State Field Hockey Complex.
GoPSUsports.com spent a morning with the Lions during preseason practice to provide an inside look at preparations for the season.
