Boston Shamrocks goaltender Lauren Hennessey (Lynnfield, MA) has committed to Division 1 Women's Hockey program Lindenwood University located in  St. Charles, Missouri. The Lady Lions play in College Hockey America (CHA) and are coached by Scott Spencer.  Spencer has coached women's college hockey for eleven seasons.

The Lindenwood women's ice hockey team practice and play their home games at their own Lindenwood University Ice Arena.   The facility features two NHL Size 85' x 200' rinks and is open year round.  The Lindenwood University Athletics Department has grown significantly over the past two decades, going from just a few sports to having one of the largest Athletics Departments in the nation.  Lindenwood has 27 sports competing in the NCAA.  Lindenwood also offers a variety of sports outside of the NCAA, most of which are among the top programs in their respective national and conference organizations.

Hennessey is the first Shamrock to sign with Lindenwood and will begin playing with the NCAA Division 1 Lady Lions in January.  "We are incredibly proud of Lauren," Shamrocks head coach and Director of Hockey Operations Sean Fisher said recently. "She has worked incredibly hard in her short time here with me and this program and we are so unbelievably proud of her athletic and academic accomplishments.  We know she will represent our program well at the Division 1 collegiate level.  We wish her all the best in her future athletic and academic endeavors and will be cheering her loudly!"
