2016-17: By the end of her freshman season, Kapoian had emerged as one of the Lady Ice Lions' biggest surprises and most improved players. She began preseason practice on defense, but quickly moved up front to balance the Penn State lineup and offer a spark on any forward unit where one was needed. She potted her first career goal on a deflection of a Trisha Cierniak shot versus Massachusetts on November 19, 2016 and added another with a power play putback of a Rachel Cole try on February 3, 2017 at NCAA Division III's Lebanon Valley College. Her first multi-point game came through a pair of assists on February 26, 2017, in the ECWHL third-place contest against Northeastern.

Prior to Penn State: Kapoian played for the Montclair Blues U19s in 2015-16, helping the squad to the Atlantic District playoffs, while skating with her school team at Mahwah High School. She was also successful with the Thunderbirds, as MHS was the sixth seed in the New Jersey state tournament, in addition to earning a number four final ranking in the Public B division following a league tournament run to the semifinals in Kapoian's senior year. Prior to her time with the Blues, she was with the New Jersey Colonials Tier II U16 team, qualifying for districts there while winning the annual "Fight Like A Girl" tournament in Rhode Island.

Personal: Rachel Lynn Kapoian was born on July 1, 1998 in Ridgewood, NJ to Paul and Lisa Kapoian. Her twin brother Marty also starred at Mahwah (as well as with U16 and U18 programs including the New Jersey Hitmen and New Jersey Colonials), topping 100 points in his career. An older brother, John, captained the Thunderbirds as a goaltender before his 2014 graduation. Off the ice Rachel, a forensic biology major, was stellar academically in high school. She was a member of the National Society of High School Scholars as well as National Honor Society, and won bronze and silver scholastic awards for maintaining a grade of 90 or better in every class for two years.
