Women's Ice Hockey
The most prolific head coach in collegiate women's hockey, Harvard coach Katey Stone has greatly influenced and built both the Crimson program and the sport in general in her 21 years in Cambridge.
Former Harvard co-captains Michelle Picard and Emerance Maschmeyer represented the United States and Canada, respectively, at the IIHF Women's World Championships, leaving the two to face Monday with a gold medal on the line.
Despite Harvard’s tough loss against No. 9/9 Colgate in the ECAC tournament quarterfinals over the weekend, there was still much for the players to celebrate. Five of the player’s for the Crimson earned postseason honors from the Ivy League.
The Harvard women’s ice hockey team found itself looking at a sudden death overtime in game three of the ECAC quarterfinals against No. 9/9 Colgate after sixty minutes of hockey, needing to net one goal in order to advance to the semifinals.
The postseason has become familiar territory for the Crimson, as the team has reached the ECAC semifinal in every year since the turn of the millennium.
