Shamrocks Alumna Amanda Conway Throws Out First Pitch At Red Sox-Yankees Game

The Times Argus

BOSTON, MA — Being honored with a proclamation from the governor and a standing ovation from the Vermont House of Representatives is about the highest honor that most local athletes could imagine.  What could possibly top that?  Here's one thing: Throwing out the first pitch at Fenway Park prior to the first Red Sox-Yankees game of the season.

On Tuesday night, three weeks after the Norwich University women's hockey team captured its second ever Division III national championship, the Cadets got to do just that.  Norwich players, who are already working out to prepare for the 2018-19 season, got to bask in the glory of their national title one more time. And they did it in front of a crowd of 32,357.

Asked how throwing out the first pitch at Fenway stacks up against the other honors the Cadets have received since winning the championship, Division III National Player of the Year [and Shamrocks Alumna] Amanda Conway didn't have to pause.  “It's definitely at the top,” she said. “I'm from Boston, so it's top of the list — hands down the best thing we've done.”

Conway, along with captains Laurie King and Bryn Labbe, delivered the ceremonial first pitch while the rest of the Cadets watched from behind the mound.  “Bryn, Laurie and I were all really nervous because we didn't think we were going to reach the plate,” Conway said.

Standing near the back of the crowd of Norwich players on the field was Cadets coach and lifelong Red Sox fan Mark Bolding, who has led NU for the last 11 years.  “What a wonderful experience to have the players come down here,” Bolding said. “It was a long winter, and just to experience this is very memorable for them. They earned it. It just completes such a great season that they had.”

“For a lot of kids, you go to Norwich, you make New England your home,” Bolding said. “Most of these kids are Red Sox fans.”  Bolding, a native of Canada, grew up rooting for the Red Sox.  “Playing baseball is just synonymous with what a lot of hockey players did, even in Western Canada,” he said. “We played ball in the summer. I love Fenway, so I'll never forget it. We're pretty fortunate that the whole team can do this.” The Red Sox went on to rout New York, 14-1, after they scored nine runs in the bottom of the sixth inning.

The Cadets beat Elmira, 2-1, on March 17 to win the national crown on their home ice. Norwich finished with a 27-1-3 record.  “The reason I went to Norwich was that I knew they had a good hockey team and we had a chance to win a national championship,” Conway said. “But I never thought we'd be here, on the field, throwing out the first pitch. Pretty unreal.”


Boston Shamrocks Alumnae Are 2017-18 NCAA National Champions

Clarkson Women Repeat as Division I National Champions

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - Clarkson University women's hockey team repeated as NCAA Division I National Champions and won its third title in the past five years with a 2-1 overtime victory over Colgate University before 2,992 fans at Minnesota's Ridder Arena on Sunday.

Clarkson, which defeated Mercyhurst University 2-1 after 76:52 minutes of play in the quarterfinal round and Ohio State 1-0 after 76:12 of play in Friday's semifinal game, closed out the most impressive season in the 15-year history of the highly successful program with a 36-4-1 record. The Green and Gold also were co-champions in the ECAC Hockey regular season with a 19-3 league mark and won their second consecutive conference championship title by shutting out Colgate 3-0 on March 4th at Cheel Arena.

Winners of back-to-back Frozen Four titles and with three National Championships in the last five years, the Golden Knights have secured a place among the most dominant programs in the history of NCAA Division I Women's Hockey. Boston Shamrocks Alumna Savannah Harmon, was the team captain and a standout defenseman on this years Division I National Championship Golden Knights. In her senior year, Harmon continued to be one of the best 200-foot players in the country.  She became the second defenseman in Clarkson history to amass 100 career points, reaching the milestone against Union (12/8) with the game-winning goal and an assist in 5-1 victory on the road. Harmon has earned a myriad of honors during her collegiate career. She was selected sixth overall by the Buffalo Beauts during the 2017 National Women's Hockey League (NWHL) draft.

A native of Downers Grove, Illinois, Harmon served as a co-captain on Clarkson's National Championship squad last season. She scored the game-winning goal in the 3-0 win over Wisconsin in the national title game to earn the Golden Knights their second NCAA Championship in four years.

Savannah played two seasons with the Boston Shamrocks where she earned first-team JWHL All-Star honors in 2014 and served as assistant captain during the 2013-2014 season. Savannah also attended the USA Hockey National Player Development Camp every year from 2009-2012. At Clarkson, Savannah was points leader among rookie skaters in 2014-2015 and was named to the ECAC All-Rookie Team.

Norwich Women's Hockey Wins 2nd National Championship

NORTHFIELD, Vt. - Sophomore forward Sophie McGovern scored the game-winning goal with 1:33 left in the third period to clinch a 2-1 victory for the Norwich University women's ice hockey team over Elmira College in the 2018 NCAA Division III Championship game at Kreitzberg Arena on Saturday night. Norwich (27-1-3) finished the season on an 18-game unbeaten streak.

The Cadets capitalized on a late power play opportunity when McGovern took a pass out of the corner from Boston Shamrocks alumna and sophomore line mate Amanda Conway (Methuen, Mass.) and buried a shot in the top right corner of the net to clinch the program's second national championship.

After a scoreless first period, Conway finally broke the  scoring ice at the 11:58 mark of the second period on a breakaway to extend her single-season record total to 34 goals on the season.  Junior defenseman Robyn Foley started the play by chipping the puck out of the NU zone and hitting Conway in stride streaking up the right wing. Conway sped past an EC defender who tried to step up to make a play and barreled in on the EC goalie. Conway rifled a wrist shot over the glove of the Soaring Eagles goalie into the top right corner of the net to make it 1-0 Norwich.  Elmira (25-3-2) notched the equalizer at the 16:02 mark of the second period.

Conway had a goal and an assist in the National Championship game to lead the Cadets' offense once again as she finished the season with a NU single-season record 34 goals and 59 total points en route to earning All-Tournament team honors.  Conway earned American Hockey Coaches Association (AHCA) First Team All-American honors.

Amanda had a record-setting sophomore season for the Cadets; establishing the new single-season record for goals with 32 and tying the single-year mark for points with 55. She was named the NEHC Player of the Year, becoming the sixth player in Norwich history to win the prestigious award as the conference's top player. Conway's 32 goals lead Division III, while her 55 points rank tied for the national lead.  Her eight power play goals tie for team lead and 137 shots lead the team. She had six game-winning goals and two hat tricks this season. She is currently averaging a goal per game in her career with 52 goals in 52 games played. Conway was named the NEHC Rookie of the Year last season after leading the Cadets with 20 goals.

Saturday night's crowd set a new NU women's hockey attendance record with 1,142 fans packing into the stands to witness a Norwich team win the second national championship on the ice at Kreitzberg Arena.
