The Providence Friars women's ice hockey program represents Providence College in NCAA Division I women's ice hockey. The Friars are a member of Hockey East and compete at the 3,030-seat Schneider Arena in Providence, Rhode Island.[1]

HistoryEdit

In the 1978-79 season, the Friars would hold the distinction of being the first team to play the new Harvard Crimson women's ice hockey team. The result was a 17-0 triumph. [2] In 1984, the Friars won the inaugural Eastern College Athletic Conference Women’s Championship.

In Jackie Barto's first season as coach in 1994-95, the Friars were 18-9-4 and won the Eastern College Athletic Conference title. The following season, the Friars reached the ECAC championship game, but they lost to New Hampshire in a game that lasted five overtimes. The 1996-97 season were one of the most successful as Providence went 20-8-2, posting the program's eighth 20-win season. In 1997-98, Barto guided the Friars to the ECAC Tournament for the 15th consecutive season. [3]

Providence College made history on Saturday, December 5, 2009 as the Friars came away with a 4-1 victory over No. 3 New Hampshire in Durham. Providence became the first Hockey East team to earn a victory at the Whittemore Center since the league's inception in 2002-03.[4] On January 9, 2010, Providence College women's hockey earned their 600th victory by defeating No. 8 Cornell by a score of 6-3. Junior Jean O'Neill tallied a goal and an assist. Genevieve Lacasse made 22 saves to record the victory. Providence now joins New Hampshire as the only two programs with 600 victories.[5]
