Karen Kiernan strolled into the first-grade classroom for a routine conference with her younger daughter's teacher, confident, with the approaching holidays on her mind.

After all, Erin was only 6, and many her age are human forms of Raggedy Ann dolls, awkward and still in search of poise and equilibrium.

Pat Kiernan, Navy's do-it-all long-stick midfielder, plays wing on faceoffs and is a threat to score in transition. He acknowledged, however, that there is one area of his game that needs work: his voice. "I would definitely say that I've tried to be a lot more vocal and loud on the field," the junior said. "I'd actually consider that to be one of my biggest weaknesses. I'm always trying to stay vocal and stay loud, and I know the coaches are getting on me about that a lot. That's definitely something I need to improve on. " Kiernan leads the Midshipmen (3-5 overall, 1-2 Patriot League)
