  1. Blue, black, white and gray in that order. Not a fan of the gray.
  2. Field hockey plays on a watered turf field at Sport Port. Watered pitches are safe surfaces, as the water layer absorbs impact better than a sand-filled pitch does. A watered pitch also gives players the ability to control their slides. Falls on these surfaces are less likely to leave players with abrasion injuries to their skin, as the surface of watered pitches is softer and cooler to play on. Hockey balls move at a consistent speed on watered surfaces as the grass blades form a denser, faster surface without sand infill. A faster, more responsive style of play develops on a water pitch, with a ball that runs more freely than it does on sand, where it can become sticky during the game. Players find their sticks last longer on wet turfs, without being worn by friction on sand, reducing the cost of replacing sticks. The ball bounces consistently on the denser watered grass surface and at an appropriate height, compared with the ball bounce produced on a dry pitch.
  3. Hannah played this summer with St. Louis Lions in the WPSL. Playing with current SLU players Hannah Friedrich, Mary Niehaus, Brionna Halverson and Isabel Burke as well as former players Lindsay Sands and Christina Rodriguez.
  4. That has been on slubillikens.com since early this morning.

  7. Megan Kress 17:44 at the Woody Greeno/Jay Dirksen Invitational looks like a new school record for that event.
  8. 5K record Hilary Orf 17:48 2010 A10 Championship. 6K record Hilary Orf 20:17 2010 NCAA Regional.
  9. After successful stints with North Dakota State and Eastern Washington, Giacoletti was named the head coach of the University of Utah Utes. He replaced the legendary Rick Majerus, who retired in the middle of the 2003–2004 season. In his three seasons at Utah, Giacoletti led Utah to a 54–40 (.574) record. In Giacoletti's first season, the Utes went 29–6 (.829) and won the Mountain West Conference regular season championship. After beating UTEP in the first round, the 6th seeded Utes upset 3rd seeded Oklahoma in the 2nd round to advance to the NCAA Sweet 16. It was the school's first Sweet 16 since the 1998 season, when Utah finished as the NCAA runner-up to Kentucky. Ironically, it was Kentucky who would beat Utah once again, ending the 2nd winningest season in school history. During Giacoletti's tenure, Andrew Bogut was named the John R. Wooden Award winner[2] and became the #1 draft pick in the 2005 NBA draft – joining fellow University of Utah student-athlete Alex Smith as the only time that two athletes from the same school were selected #1 in their respective drafts in the same year. Giacoletti was named the 2005 Mountain West Coach of the Year, after guiding the Utes to a 13–1 conference record, the best record in conference history. Giacoletti's second season was dramatically different from his first. Gone was All-American Andrew Bogut, starting point guard Marc Jackson graduated, Justin Hawkins decided to transfer to New Mexico State and Richard Chaney transferred to Troy State, all major players in Utah's Sweet 16 run the season before. The Utes struggled with a young team and finished with the school's first losing record since the 1989 season, with a record of 14–15. Giacoletti's third season saw a further decline and the Utes had their worst season since 1983–84 (11–19). His approval rating among fans plummeted and many Ute fans sought his resignation. There were even a few anti-Giacoletti web sites that popped up including Giacolettimustgo.com. A day before Utah's final regular season game, versus conference rival BYU, he resigned as Head Basketball coach effective at the end of the season.[3] At Drake, Giacoletti's teams got worse each season, just as at Utah (based on won-loss records). He resigned after 3+ seasons at Drake with a 32–69 record.

  11. All of the homes last season were actually played at St. Clair Tennis Club, O'Fallon, IL
  12. Ream's team Fulham now play in the Championship, they were relegated last season.
  13. Has anyone seen him play. There was a lot of hype surrounding him joining the team. He showed moments of brilliance but was not really a team player. McGinty was constantly screaming at him for not being in position. Kalish probably felt he would not fit into his system.

  15. Lost 3-4. Walked in winning run, bottom of 10th. Mizzou had the bases loaded multiple times but could not do much damage.
  16. All the more impressive was that coming into the game VCU were ranked second in the nation in scoring defense, allowing 49.8 pts per game.
