Women’s Hockey Secures Bid at NCAAs, Revived After NESCAC Woes

By MAX PADILLA

Middlebury hosted this year’s NESCAC Women’s Hockey Championship Series, which featured Hamilton, Colby, Amherst and the Panthers themselves. The blue-and-white competed against Hamilton College in the semifinals and won 2-1 on Saturday, March 7. In the finals, Middlebury lost to Amherst by a singular point with the final score at 2-1. Despite losing out at the last minute, the Panthers had an amazing season, finishing with a PCT of .906, higher than last years .625 and .875 the year before them. Of the 27 games that Middlebury played, they won 21 and lost only 3. Twice in the season they had a win streak longer than 7 games. The Panthers found enormous success this season, despite 16 of their 27 members being underclassmen. Hopefully the experience from this season will lead to even more victories next year.
