The CW Post Field Hockey team has seen a great start to their 2010 season.  Currently ranked 5th in the nation, the team boasts a 5-2 record, a visible improvement over their 3-5 start to the 2009 season.  The Pioneers have outshot their opponents 127-77 this season and outscored them 19-8.  Leading this offensive assault is senior forward Amanda Nann.  The three-time Second Team All-American leads the team with 9 goals and 3 assists and, just last week, broke the CW Post record for career goals, with 56.
