The Colby College White Mules women's ice hockey program used to compete in the ECAC. The White Mules were one of only two non-Division I schools at the time in the 12-team Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference.
During the 1995-96 season, Meaghan Sittler led the NCAA with 41 goals and 40 assists in 21 games.  In her final 13 games, Sittler had eight hat tricks and either scored or assisted on 82 of 111 White Mules goals.
Laura Halldorson led the White Mules to a 12-9-1 overall record in 1995-96. In the process, she earned ECAC Co-Coach of the Year honors as well as being named the New England Hockey Writers’ Coach of the Year. While at Colby, she recruited and coached U.S. National Team members Meaghan Sittler and Barb Gordon.  Following two seasons as an assistant at Princeton, she took over at Colby, where she spent seven seasons building a program that turned a 5-12-2 record in her first season into a 12-9-1 mark in her last season.
