The Cornell Big Red women's ice hockey program represents Cornell University and participates in ECAC Hockey.


HistoryEdit

The Cornell women's hockey program was started in 1971. It would only be in 1972 that the team would play its first game. It was a 4-3 victory over Scarborough. In 1972, they would play eight games and lose four. In addition, the Big Red would lose twice to the Brown Bears women's ice hockey program.[1]

In 1976, Brown would host the first ever Ivy League women's ice hockey tournament. Cornell would best Brown, Princeton and Yale to win the tournament.

Megan Shull would join the Big Red in 1987. She would have to stop playing the next season that was attributed to an injury. She would go on to become a children's author, and one of her first stories was "Yours Truly, Skye O'Shea." O'Shea is a hockey-playing sixth grader that grew up in Ithaca, New York. [2] Shull was one of the founders of the Cub Club at Cornell University. It gives young female hockey players the opportunity to shadow Cornell women's ice hockey players. [3]

On March 7, 2010, sophomore Kendice Ogilvie beat Clarkson goaltender Lauren Dahm at 7:52 mark in overtime. With the victory, Cornell won its first ECAC Tournament, and earns its first trip to the NCAA Frozen Four.[4]

On March 13, 2010, Cornell defeated the Harvard Crimson women's ice hockey program by a score of 6-2[5] to earn its first ever trip to the NCAA Frozen Four. At the 2010 Frozen Four championship game, Cornell goaltender Amanda Mazzotta set a record for most saves in an NCAA Championship game with 61 saves. The former record holder was Bulldog goaltender Patricia Sautter. She had the old record of 41 set in 2003.[6]
