NE10 Hall of Fame Inductee: 2010 UMass Lowell Field Hockey



2010 UMass Lowell Field Hockey, National Champions

In December of 2010 at the NCAA’s Fall Festival in Louisville, the University of Massachusetts Lowell field hockey team completed a perfect season with a 1-0 win over Shippensburg in the National Championship game. Northeast-10 Conference Player of the Year Liz Day scored the only goal of the game late in the first half as UMass Lowell claimed it’s second national title in the sport.

The River Hawks posted a 24-0 record during the season and - rather remarkably - only allowed eight goals all season long. Sammy Macy led the UMass Lowell offense with 76 points, and would later be named the Honda Division II National Athlete of the Year, while goalkeeper Melanie Hopkins led the country with a mind-boggling 0.35 goals against average for the champions. 


The NE10 is an association of 15 diverse institutions serving student-athletes across 24 NCAA Division II sports. Together we build brilliant futures by embracing the journey of every student-athlete.

Each year, 4,500 of those student-athletes compete in conference championships in 24 sports, making the NE10 the largest DII conference in the country in terms of sport sponsorship. Leading the way in the classroom, on the field and within the community, the NE10 is proud of its comprehensive program and the experience it provides student-athletes.
