WIHC Holds First Captain's Practice

On Tuesday evening in the familiar, orange confines of the Greenberg Ice Pavilion, the Women's Ice Hockey Club formally began on-ice preparations for the 2013-14 season with a captain's practice.

Last season's ACHA Women's Division 2 runners-up will join the rest of Penn State's hockey teams in moving into the $90 million Pegula Ice Arena this month before opening the season against Liberty in PIA's Community Rink on September 27th at 10:15 p.m. A rematch will take place the next day in Altoona's Galactic Ice Arena before the WIHC begins play in its new conference, College Hockey East, with a series at California (PA) on October 11th and 12th. Following 18 regular-season games, the schedule will conclude with the CHE playoffs in York, PA on February 22nd and 23th and the ACHA National Tournament from March 13th through 16th in Newark, DE.
