Clarkson women's hockey begins quest for 3rd straight National Title
Thursday, March 14, 2019 - 7:10 am

Two-time defending National Champion Clarkson University will begin its quest for the program's fourth NCAA title this Saturday when the Golden Knights host Boston College in a quarterfinal game at Cheel Arena. Face off is at 2:00 p.m.

The Green and the Gold are looking to become the first women's hockey program to win three straight NCAA Titles since Minnesota Duluth claimed the championships in the inaugural years of the Division I Tournament (2001-2003).

Clarkson, which won its third National Title last year in Minneapolis, MN, is striving to reach next weekend's Frozen Four in Hamden, CT, the site of its first National Championship. The Golden Knights are making their eighth overall appearance in the NCAA Tournament and seventh consecutive showing in women's college hockey's showcase event. The Green and Gold have advanced to the Frozen Four four times and won it all in 2014, 2017 and 2018.

Seeded fourth in the eight-team tournament, the Golden Knights are one victory away from their fourth consecutive 30-win season with a 29-7-2 overall record.
