one of the most dangerous two-way players in the MAAC. As a result, she was named to the MAAC Second Team and All-MAAC Tournament Team while leading the team in ground balls and caused turnovers and ranking third in goals. A tenacious defender who always seems to be in the middle of every play, Hepper will be a major key to the Saints’ success in 2011.


After spending her first two and a half seasons primarily seeing action on defense, Primo branched out to play more midfield as last season wore on. The move paid off, as Primo grew into her new role and contributed to the team’s offensive attack down the stretch.


Junior Michelle Andreo picked up right where she left off last season, following a fantastic freshman season, and will be another key this year. One of the fastest players with the ball in transition, Andreo has the propensity to score easy goals in bunches.


Maguire only started three games last season as a freshman, but managed to show some flashes of what she could become with more consistent playing time this season. A good stick handler and offensive catalyst, Maguire is already reminding some people of her father, Kevin’s, strong play as a standout lacrosse player with the Saints back in the mid-80s.


A trio of freshmen enter the fold this season and while the Saints’ four starting midfield spots are likely set in stone with veterans, this is a highly-talented group in Kelly Perry, Shannon Pfohl and Casey Irwin and each could push the veterans for playing time as soon as this season.

A pair of senior captains in Erin Hepper and Allie Primo aim to anchor the position. Hepper has continued to show tremendous improvement over each of her years and last year, fine tuned her scoring prowess in becoming


Defense While Siena’s defensive backfield may be its most inex- perienced area, that is not to say that this unit is not strong and battle-tested. While they may lack some of the depth and stats that the attack and midfield corps hold, several younger players have formed a nice mix with the veterans to form an ever-improving unit.


The lone senior of the group is Burgandy McCurty. Arguably the best volleyball player in MAAC history,
