Fairfield University Field Hockey’s Maddy Sposito ’13 has been named to the United States National Indoor Team for the upcoming 2013-2014 season. This is not the first time Sposito has earned the spot; it will be her second consecutive season on the team.
Sposito is coming off a strong senior season with the Stags in which she was third in the conference with 95 saves and 5.28 saves per game. She also finished her senior season with a 2.94 goals against average.
She finished her career with the second highest winning percentage in Fairfield’s history with .489. She also ended her career with 271 saves and five shutouts, three of which came in her senior season.
It was no surprise to Fairfield Head Coach Jackie Kane that Sposito would earn her spot back on the team for the upcoming season.
“Maddy’s hard work and determination has earned her a spot on the U.S. team. I am very proud of her as this was a dream of hers for a long time,” said Kane.
Sposito is going to look to build off her experience with the team and earn a long awaited appearance with the team.
“I have always wanted to play for the United States Field Hockey team. I am very excited to return for another year with the indoor team. With a year of experience under my belt, I know the system, the coaches and the players so that will hopefully help me make a travel squad and earn a cap,” said Sposito.
Stag fans everywhere will be behind Sposito as she joins the team for the 2014 Pan-American Indoor Cup. Stay tuned to The Mirror for a more in depth interview with Sposito about her appointment to the United States squad.
