Jessie Superchi Gaudioso

Jessie Superchi Gaudioso was a two-sport student-athlete in field hockey and women's lacrosse while at the University of Southern Maine.

Superchi Gaudioso was a two-time All-Little East Conference goalkeeper on the field hockey team, earning second team honors as a sophomore before being named the Defensive Player of the Year and a first team all-conference honors as a senior in 2003 after compiling a 0.97 goals against average while making a then program record 176 saves and posting 10 shutouts among her program-record 17 wins between the pipes. Her senior campaign saw her named an All-Region selection for the third consecutive season, and a Second Team All-American by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA).

Superchi Gaudioso posted an overall record of 46-25 in the cage for USM. She finished her career and the program's all-time leader in saves (531), while wrapping her career ranked second in shutouts (24) and fifth in goals against average (1.08). She remains in the top-five in each of those categories.

Superchi Gaudioso helped lead the Huskies to one of the most successful four-year runs in program history. USM posted an overall record of 57-33 and won the program's first, and to-date only LEC tournament title in 2003, which led to the program's first NCAA tournament appearance in 11 years. That followed back-to-back appearances in the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) tournament in 2001 and 2002.

On the lacrosse field, Superchi Gaudioso started in 36 of her 40 career games played, splitting time between attack and defense. She totaled 13 career points and 52 ground balls over her three seasons (2002-05), which were among the first of the program's modern era after it returned to varsity status in 2001.

Superchi Gaudioso earned her bachelor's degree in therapeutic recreation from Southern Maine in 2005. She was inducted into the Husky Athletic Hall of Fame in 2012.
