Stone took a year leave of absence to be the head coach of the United States Women's team at the 2014 Olympics.

History[edit | edit source]

In the 1978-79 season, the Harvard Crimson would ice a women’s team. Their first game was a 17-0 defeat at the hands of the Providence Friars women's ice hockey program. The next game was a 2-1 loss to the Yale Bulldogs women's ice hockey program. [1]

In 1998-99, the Crimson finished with a record of 33-1. Of the 31 wins, the Crimson won 30 consecutive games to close the season. [2] In the previous season, the Crimson went 14-16-0. The final game of that 30 game streak was a 6-5 overtime victory over the New Hampshire Wildcats women's ice hockey program in the AWCHA national championship game. During the season, the Crimson would win the Beanpot and Ivy League title. In addition, the Crimson won their first ECAC regular-season and tournament championships. This would be Katey Stone's first AWCHA (American Women's College Hockey Alliance) national championship. [3]

In 2001, Harvard participated in the inaugural NCAA Championship tournament. During the 2003-04 season, Nicole Corriero would set an NCAA record with 59 goals scored in a season. [4] On February 26, 2010, head coach Katey Stone became the women’s college hockey all-time wins leader, surpassing former University of Minnesota head coach Laura Halldorson.[5]

November 27, 2004: Harvard co-captain Nicole Corriero (9) celebrates her goal in the first period of a 3-5 loss to Minnesota. Ashley Banfield (3) celebrates her goal. Corriero went on to tally an assist in the second and another goal in the third period.
