Program History
Begun in 1983, the Babson field hockey program rose to regional prominence in the mid-1990s. In 1993, the Beavers went 11-7 and earned their first-ever bid to the ECAC New England Tournament. The following season, the team enjoyed what was then the finest season in program history, going 14-7-1 and winning its first-ever ECAC Tournament Championship--the first such title for any women's sport at Babson.

The field hockey team continued to excel in 1998, when the squad was ranked 17th in the NFHCA national poll for the first time in program history. A year later, the Beavers went 10-9 and finished fourth in the NEWMAC -- their highest finish in the conference in six years.

After posting 12 wins in 2001 and 14 more in 2002, Babson enjoyed a fantastic season in 2003, going 18-5 overall while earning the team's third straight ECAC Tournament berth. The team then went 14-9 and earned its fourth consecutive bid to the ECACs in 2004 before turning in an epic 2005 campaign. Led by NEWMAC and ECAC Player of the Year Elise Conley '06, the Beavers went 19-6, earned their first-ever NCAA Tournament berth, and advanced to the second round for the first time. The nation's leading scorer in both goals and points that year, Conley became the first player in program history to earn two First Team All-America honors.

The fall of 2007 marked another historic campaign for the Beavers, who became the first women's program in Babson history to start the season 0-4 and then win their regular season conference title. The Beavers won 13 of their final 15 games, including their first-ever sweep of NEWMAC play, to win their second regular season crown in three years. The team then won 11 more games in 2008 and 2009, setting the stage for the greatest season in program history in 2010. Led by New England East Player of the Year, First Team All-American, and NEWMAC Woman of the Year honoree Colleen Kelly '11, the Beavers went 16-6, completed yet another sweep of the conference, and won the program's first-ever NEWMAC Championship. As a result, the team earned its second bid to the NCAA Tournament, where Babson advanced to the second round before falling to eventual National Champion Bowdoin.

The 2012 season saw the Beavers sweep the NEWMAC regular season yet again, earning the program's fourth regular season title and second in a three-year-span. The team was led by second-team All-American Morgan Lockwood '14, who finished her career as the program's all-time leader with 212 points and 87 goals. A four-time all-conference and All-New England selection, she also finished second all-time with 38 assists.
