Women's Ice Hockey
In its final pair of games before the upcoming three-week winter holiday, the No. 9/10 Harvard women’s hockey team pulled out two victories — one in thrilling fashion and one by a comfortable margin.
Building off of a statement win against Brown two weeks ago, the Harvard women’s ice hockey team continued its recent strong play by outlasting the University of New Hampshire, 3-2, last Tuesday at the Whittemore Center. The victory moved the No. 9/10 Crimson to 7-3-0 (4-3-0 ECAC) and sent the team into the Thanksgiving break on a two-game win streak.
As students across campus head home for Thanksgiving break, Harvard women’s hockey will be heading to Durham, N.H., for a matchup with New Hampshire.
Crimson women's hockey comes together for a team photo in the shape of a 12 at practice. Harvard coaches Katey Stone and Lee-J Mirasolo have pushed for gender equity via tournament expansion for years, and this season, the whole Crimson squad is rallying behind the movement to expand the NCAA Tournament to 12 teams.
The NCAA moved to expand the women’s ice hockey championship from eight to 11 teams earlier this month — a change that followed years of pressure from Harvard coaches, who argued that a playoff expansion would improve gender equity in college hockey.
Harvard women’s hockey coach Katey Stone has no shortage of accolades under her belt: Eleven Beanpot titles, 11 NCAA tournament appearances, and three ECAC Hockey Coach of the Year honors. On Saturday, she added another: Her 500th career win — a triumphant 5-2 victory over Brown.
Head coach Katey Stone and her staff preside over the bench in a game against Dartmouth in the 2019-20 campaign, which brought Stone's career to 494 wins. With a 6-3 record so far this season, Stone has clinched her 500th career win, becoming the first female head coach to do so.
Coming off of a difficult overtime loss to Clarkson on Saturday, the Harvard women’s ice hockey team bounced back with a dominant 5-2 victory over Boston College on Tuesday night at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center.
Forward Keely Moy (#12, pictured above) averaged 1-point per game in the 2020-21 campaign for HC Ladies Lugano, a season that ended with Lugano winning the Swiss championship, three games to one, in a best-of-five series.

When she moved to Southern California at the age of ten, there were only one or two girls’ hockey teams in the region. Instead, she played — and starred — for boys’ teams throughout her hockey career, often alongside her older brother.
More than half of Harvard’s athletics teams have pledged to attain perfect voter turnout in the November elections. Twenty-four teams partnered with Harvard Votes Challenge, a student-led group run through the Institute of Politics that aims to secure 100 percent voter turnout across the University.
Over 102 minutes of game-play had elapsed, and even still, a winner had not yet been crowned. Everything was on the line as the mid-afternoon crept into the evening.
The contest with the Big Red, however, will not be the only playoff game this weekend that involves Harvard players.
As the clock wound down in the third period, Harvard held a 3-2 lead over Yale. Then, with 14.1 seconds remaining in regulation, Bulldog senior defender Saroya Tinker executed a shot from the point which Dalton successfully redirected in the air, steering the puck past Crimson sophomore goaltender Lindsay Reed’s shoulder to send the game into overtime.
