Jenn Slough, a 2007 graduate who led the Bulldogs in defensive saves last season with six, returns to Yale as a volunteer assistant coach in 2007. As a senior Slough played a key role in Yale's second-place finish in the Ivy League standings, helping the team tie for its highest finish since winning the Ivy title in 1980. Her career also included an ECAC championship in her freshman year. "I am thrilled to have Jenn join our coaching staff! Her strengths will complement our coaching and support staff both on and off the field," said head coach Pam Stuper. "She is an amazing young woman and we are lucky to have her for a 'fifth' year." Slough is the first player in Stuper's tenure (two years as head coach, eight years as an assistant) to remain with the team in a daily coaching role after graduation. Amanda Walton '02, who was injured in a car accident while she was an undergraduate, will continue in her motivational role with the team as special assistant. Slough and the Class of 2007 tied the Class of 1999's school record for wins in Ivy League games, totaling 12 in their time at Yale along with a pair of second-place finishes. A back, Slough played in 16 games in 2007, starting 13. She finished her career with 37 games played and 26 starts. "I chose to stay involved with Yale Field Hockey because I respect Pam's visions for the team and I want to help in any way that I can so that the team can succeed," Slough said. "I would not trade my four years playing field hockey at Yale for anything, so I am very excited to be able to give back to the program. I can't wait for another year with this team." Slough aids assistant coach Tamara Durante in her work with the goalies while also working on skill acquisition and development with the field players. She also handles the team's film work. Prior to Yale, Slough was a participant in the 2003 Futures Elite Under-19 team's Holland tour and competed in the 2002 and 2003 National Futures tournament and the FDIC. A Silver Spring, Md., native, Slough captained Academy of the Holy Cross as both a junior and a senior. Her club team, Capitol Pegasus, went to the National Indoor Tournament in 2002 and 2003 and also participated in the National Hockey Festival. Slough graduated from Yale with a B.S. in chemistry and plans to attend medical school. In addition to her work with the field hockey team this year, she is working in the same developmental biology lab that she worked in as an undergraduate. She is researching cilia and their role in brain and neural tube development.
