Sportlight on Women's Ice Hockey

The Maryland Women’s Ice Hockey team is off to an exciting season. The team is showing a great deal of talent and enthusiasm that has provided for some amazing ice hockey. Come check out the Terps as they battle it out on the ice. The team’s home ice is located only a few miles from campus at The Garden’s Ice House in Laurel, MD.

The Terps have started strong this season with victories against Mt Holyoke, Naval Academy and most recently Virginia. The team took on Virginia this past weekend at the Verizon Center in DC. The match up took place prior to a Washington Capitals game. The Terps defeated UVA, the defending League Champions, with a 2-1 victory. Goals were scored by junior, Assistant Captain, Carolyn Desrochers and freshman, Emily Summers.

The Terps have been working hard since last semester to build the team to its full potential. The team began with an intensive summer training program. As the season officially began the team has developed a new playing strategy that has allowed the talent on this team to shine through. The team also spent a September afternoon teambuilding at the Washington National Zoo. The hard work that has been put in by every member of the team and coaching staff is clearly evident this season. The theme of the season has been “Fight Back”. The Terps chose the motto to represent this season as a time of rebuilding the team.
