HistoryEdit

From 1999 to 2003, the Dutchwomen competed in Division III hockey. In 2003, the Dutchwomen joined the ECAC.

On February 20, 2010, senior Jackie Koetteritz, had played in her 125th game for the Dutchwomen, setting a record for the most games in a Dutchwoman uniform.[2]

On November 4, 2011: Emilie Arseneault scored a short handed goal late into the second period to give the Dutchwomen a 2-1 conference victory over the Clarkson Golden Knights women's ice hockey program. It was the Dutchwomen's first ECAC win since the 2009-2010 season, and only their second ECAC win since 2004.[3]

Despite ending the 2013-14 season with a 9-24-1 record, several milestones were achieved. Their nine wins, all recorded by goaltender Shenae Lundberg, setting a record for most wins in one season by a goaltender, signified the highest win total under Head Coach Claudia Asano Barcomb. Starting the season 2-0 for the first time in program history, the Dutchwomen enjoyed another notable first, defeating the Princeton Tigers. The Dutchwomen also set a new program record with 25 power play goals, as senior forward Stefanie Thomson scored seven power play goals, also a program record. Subsequently, their efforts on the power play resulted in the third best power play in the ECAC conference, ranking eighth best in the nation. As a side note, team captain Maddy Norton would lead the team in assists (18) and points (21).

In 2019-2020, the Dutchwomen finished 9th in the ECAC, their highest finish in the league. They finished the season at 5-24-5 overall, and 5-13-5 in conference play.
