Fresh off a season at Amherst College that saw her named an All-American and a national Rookie of the Year, midfielder Maia Noyes (Lexington, Mass.) turned her focus to improving endurance.
“Last season was pretty intense,” she said, “and I found myself getting tired at the end of the year.”
After going 17-3 and reaching the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament, the question of endurance also hovers over Amherst. Does a talented, experienced squad have what it takes to go the distance?
“We’re having fun,” longtime coach Christine Paradis said just ahead of the March 2 season opener against Colby.
