Coach Stuper: "Katie's love and passion for Yale and Yale Field Hockey is second to none. Our most experienced attacker, she has great off ball awareness which helps our strikers generate movement on attack. Katie's tips and touches in the circle make her dangerous." Favorite Field Hockey Moment(s): The perfect corner tip into the goal against American and sitting with my teammates and watching Olympic field hockey matches at sunset in Athens.

Why Yale? Because of the spirit of community; because of my fabulous friends and brilliant mentors who consistently challenge and inspire; and because of The Game, the music library in Sterling, lunch at the long table in TD, Mory's cups, Pepe's Pizza, Handsome Dan and, of course, Pam Stuper.
