TOP NEWS STORIES

Hardy Commits to Pennsylvania State University

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

The Boston Shamrocks are proud to announce Tri-Captain PG forward Aly Hardy (St. Albans, VT) has committed to Pennsylvania State University women's hockey program for the 2014-15 season.

Women's hockey at Penn State dates back to the fall of 1996 when students were disappointed that there wasn't a team on campus and decided to do something about it. They drummed up interest, and by February 1, 1997, the group was ready for its first game: a 5-4 win over the Harrisburg Rockettes. The team quickly took on the moniker "Lady Icers," an obvious reference to their men's hockey counterpart, which had long stood as one of non-varsity hockey's stalwart programs.

Due to a $102 million dollar donation to endow scholarships and construct the state-of-the-art Pegula Ice Arena on campus, in 2012 the Lady Icers were elevated to varsity status and joined the College Hockey America (CHA), an NCAA Division I women's ice hockey conference, as the Nittany Lions.

The 2013-14 Penn State women's hockey season was monumental in numerous capacities. The young, aspiring program took leaps in its second year of existence with numerous individual and team accolades--displaying its inevitable destiny to grow in coming years.

The Nittany Lions completed their inaugural season in Pegula Ice Arena with a 4-29-3 overall record and a 1-18-1 record in College Hockey America play. Despite the uneven tilt in results, the Blue and White showed grittiness and resilience throughout the season, providing promise for the future.

Monday, March 24, 2014

During the 2013-14 Shamrocks campaign Maccario scored 12 goals, along with 15 assists for 27 points, in 31 JWHL league games.

The University of Connecticut Huskies play in the very competitive Hockey East along with such highly acclaimed programs as Boston University, Boston College, Northeastern University, University of New Hampshire, Providence College, University of Vermont and the University of Maine.

The Women's Hockey East Association celebrated its 12th season of play in 2013-14. Over the first 12 years, the conference has emerged as one of the top women's ice hockey conferences in the nation, having sent eight teams to the Frozen Four and 17 teams to the NCAA Tournament.

 

Guy Commits To St. Anselm College

Monday, March 24, 2014

The Boston Shamrocks are proud to announce senior Jackie Guy (St. Louis, MO) has committed to St. Anselm College for the 2014-15 season.

St. Anselm College is a member of the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) and competes in the ECAC East Women's Conference. The 2013-14 season marks the 75th anniversary of the ECAC.

In its 75th year of service, the ECAC continues to service the needs of its membership. The Conference operates on a set of three core values: excellence; service-based, student-athlete centered organization; sense of community. By adhering to those core values, the ECAC continues to be a nationwide leader in service for its member student-athletes, administrators, coaches and institutions.

This past season the St. Anselm College women's ice hockey team won its third straight ECAC Open Championships. The Hawks defeated the College of the Holy Cross, 2-1, in the Championship Game to capture their sixth ECAC Open title.

The 2013-14 Championship Game was the Hawks ninth ECAC Open Final appearance. The Hawks finished the season 24-3-0, which matches the best record in program history from the 2006-07 season. The 24 wins are a personal best for Hawks head coach Kerstin Matthews, who has twice guided the Hawks to 20 victories prior to this season. It was Matthews' fifth championship game appearance and her third title with the Hawks.

 

Kohl Commits To Connecticut College

Monday, March 24, 2014

The Boston Shamrocks are proud to announce senior forward Kate Kohl (Chelmsford, MA) has committed to Connecticut College for the 2014-15 season.

Connecticut College is a member of a small group of institutions labeled the "Little Ivies." The Connecticut College Camels women's hockey team is a member of the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC).

Founded in 1971, the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) is a group of eleven highly selective liberal arts colleges and universities that share a similar philosophy for intercollegiate athletics. The formation of NESCAC originated with an agreement among Amherst College, Bowdoin College, Wesleyan University and Williams College first drafted in 1955. Along with these four institutions, Bates College, Colby College, Hamilton College, Middlebury College, Trinity College and Tufts University are sustaining charter members. Connecticut College joined in 1982, bringing the Conference's membership to its current total of 11 institutions.

Kohl has been a member of the Shamrocks for four years and was selected as a tri-captain for the 2013-14 season. Splitting time between forward and defense, Kohl scored 14 goals and had nine assists for 23 points while leading the team to a 38-19-8 record.

 

Jacques Commits To Brown University

Friday, February 7, 2014

The Boston Shamrocks are proud to announce junior forward Jessica Jacques (North Reading, MA) has committed to Brown University for the 2015-16 season.

The Brown University Bears women's hockey team is a member of the very prestigious Ivy League and competes in the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC). ECAC Hockey has played the role of both a leader and pioneer for nearly three decades that NCAA Division I women's hockey has been in existence.

Home to the premier Division I league in the nation, ECAC Hockey boasts a history that gleams with accomplishments. From individual honors to contributions on the international stage, the league and its players and coaches have set a high standard for excellence in the game. League athletes have earned All-America honors 67 times, claimed 32 Olympic Gold Medals, and have won the Patty Kazmaier Award nine out of the 15 years it has existed as the designation of the nation's top player.

Membership in ECAC Hockey has changed to meet the needs of the exploding collegiate sport as 24 teams have called ECAC Hockey home since the first championship was contested in 1984. The league's current roster of teams includes some of the most storied programs in the nation: Brown, Clarkson, Colgate, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, Quinnipiac, Rensselaer, St. Lawrence, Union and Yale.

During a recent game against Ivy League rival Yale University, the Brown University's women's hockey team celebrated it's 50th anniversary. It holds the distinction of being the oldest women's hockey program in the nation. The first Bears squad took to the ice in the fall of 1963 and the program has remained a leader ever since. Brown has produced seven Olympians, placing five on the 2005-06 National Team roster for the XX Winter Games, amassed 458 wins in 48 seasons, and has twice represented the ECAC Hockey in national title games. The Bears have advanced to the national championship tournament four times, most recently facing Minnesota-Duluth in the championship game of the 2002 NCAA Women's Frozen Four.
