Brad Prasky Football Brad, a senior from Groton, Mass., was an instrumental part of the UNH football team’s success on special teams to help lead the No. 1-ranked Wildcats to a 35-30 victory against the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in a Dec. 12 NCAA FCS quarterfinal game at Cowell Stadium. The 6-foot-1 punter/placekicker averaged 45 yards on seven punts, including four inside the 20 and a season-high 61-yarder. He was also 3-for-3 in PAT attempts. Brad’s first punt of the game was only 39 yards, but the net was also 39 as the ball was downed at the UTC 2 yard line. Early in the second quarter, UNH was forced to punt from its 14; when it looked like the Mocs would start with excellent field position, Brad booted his season-long 61-yard punt to back UTC to its 25. His next punt sailed 48 yards and rolled out of bounds to pin Chattanooga at its 13 yard line. Early in the third quarter, Brad booted a punt 47 yards to once again pin UTC inside the 20 (at the 15).
Jessica Salley Women's Indoor Track & Field Jessica, a senior from Andover, Mass., broke her own school record for the indoor track & field high jump with a mark of 1.71 meters at the Jay Carisella Carnival that was held Saturday, Dec. 13 at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston, Mass. That mark is also an ECAC Championship-qualifying standard and surpasses her previous school benchmark of 1.70m established at the 2014 America East Championship meet. Jessica was the only one of 24 competitors in the high jump to clear 1.65m – just five others had advanced to that height. She then cleared 1.71 on her first attempt but faulted on all three attempts at 1.75m.
