HistoryEdit

Beginning as a club team, the women's program has seen great success since entering Division-I in 1997. Currently, the team has made five Frozen Four appearances in the eight years since the creation of a Women's NCAA Division-I tournament. With the women's appearance in inaugural Frozen Four (2001), St. Lawrence became the first school to have both their men and women's programs in the NCAA Division-I ice hockey tournament in the same year.[1]

The first women's hockey game was played in 1974, as a club program. The women's team transitioned to a Division-III program in 1979, and won three consecutive ECAC Division-III tournaments in 1990, 1991, and 1992.[2]

Following the 2007-08 season, Head Coach Paul Flanagan left St. Lawrence to a position with Syracuse Orange women's ice hockey program. Flanagan was the women's program's all-time winningest coach with a nine-season record of 230-83-24. Then Men's Associate Head Coach, Chris Wells was appointed to replace him[3] and in his first season coached the team to a berth in the national championship tournament with a record of 24-11-3.
