2016 Outlook: Bulldogs Continue Building
With the top two scorers and an all-region goalie returning from last year’s team, the Yale field hockey team looks to build on a solid foundation in 2016. The Bulldogs will be relatively young again; after having only two seniors last year, they have four this season. But the team has been gradually accumulating the depth and experience on the roster needed to return to the level of success seen from 2009-11, when Yale went 17-4 in Ivy League play and won the Ivy League title. Seven of Yale’s returning players started 13 or more games last year, and six freshmen arrive to bolster the squad for the program’s 45th varsity season.
