Not an original title. I get it. But we might as well get started on a new thread for a new season and what better way to do it then to announce the incoming class:
St Georges actually has 2 players going D1 this year as well as a boy's player also going to Harvard. Olivia Soares going to Ohio State and Frederic Gregoire to Harvard.
The team's 2016-'17 schedule:
Both the men and women have an early exhibition game which leads me to believe that they are going to start practicing before October 1st. Captains are usually on the ice with their teammates in early September so I don't think this is a big deal. But Katey told me that there is definite pressure to start early to keep up with the non-Ivy schools when the regular season hits.
Harvard and BC will play at Frozen Fenway this year:
Harvard's schedule will be adjusted to accommodate this game. The Crimson will open the season at Dartmouth on Oct 23rd and travel to Durham to play UNH on November 15th. The Green come to Bright-Landry on January 17th. Proceeds from the game will support the Denna Laing Foundation.

I was shocked (and honestly appalled) to see that Mary Parker is using her redshirt year due to injury last season and is playing for BU now (as a graduate student). How many concussions can she absorb? I wish her well, but I have to confess that this just seems wrong on numerous levels to me....
Everybody WATCH OUT for weird starting times this year...occasionally 3pm or 6pm on Fridays, 3:30pm on Saturdays...looks like MIT frat boys hacked into the schedule using a random digit table

And apropos of Harvard's requirement that the student athlete drop out of school if they want to preserve their athletic eligibility, do we all remember Kenyatta Smith of the men's BB team who decided to rehab a pre-season injury and stay in college, and came back in February only to break his foot two miutes into his first game...and thereby lose a year's eligibilty?
She is not the first women's player to do this. Amy McLaughlin lost a year of playing at Brown due to injury, and took her last year as a post-grad at UNH.
