The field hockey team reached the NE-10 Tournament semifinals for the second consecutive year under the direction of head coach Gloria O’Connor, courtesy of an 11–9 overall record and a 5–5 mark in regular season conference play.

Men’s and women’s cross country enjoyed success this year at the conference, regional and national levels.
