Name: Brittney Cardente
Sport: Field Hockey
Jersey Number: 6
The sophomore from North Kingstown, R.I. has made an early impact on the Owls field hockey team this season. Once a mid-fielder now transitioning into a new corner position, Cardente started the season opener off with an assist on the first goal and with 43 seconds remaining in a game against University of New England Saturday, Aug. 30 scored the game-winning goal.
Cardente’s success doesn’t stop there. In a game against New England College Saturday, Sept. 6 Cardente assisted two more goals. The Owls won 11-0.
“Brittney’s a tough player, she’s quick, aggressive, physical and strong. She’s a real go-getter,” Head Coach Amy Watson said.
Not only is Cardente a go-getter on the field, but off the field as well. Her major is physical education and she wants to inspire others to get involved in sports like her coaches and P.E. Teachers did for her.
“They made a huge impact on my life and I want to impact someone’s life like they did mine. Field hockey changed my life and I wouldn’t be here [Keene State] without them,” Cardente said.
