The 2011 season is shaping up to be an exciting one, for numerous reasons. The Miners return nine starters, including three seniors (Katie Dorman, MF, Chandra Morden, GK and Jessie Pettit, MF) and three juniors (Tess Hall, MF, Brittany Kindzierski, F and Skye Schultz, F). Overall the Miners bring back 12 letterwinners who accounted for 43 of the 44 goals, 29 of the 37 assists and 92 of the 102 saves during the 2010 campaign. The Miners will be in search of their 10th straight winning season, all of which have featured 10+ victories.

Twelve of the 20 regular-season contests, including seven of 11 within C-USA play, are slated to be held at University Field. UTEP will renew the battle of I-10 in the season and home opener against NM State (Aug. 19), hold the second-annual Border Bash (Aug. 26 & 28), the 12th-annual Border Shootout (Sept. 9 & Sept. 11) while also playing seven of its 11 Conference USA contests at University Field. Overall the Miners will face three 2010 NCAA Championship participants throughout the 2011 fall season.
