Women's Ice Hockey


April Foss, Karmell Dawson-Siebold, and a team of tenacious individuals originally founded the Women’s Ice Hockey Club in 1998. Like any beginning sports team, the club faced both successful and challenging seasons. Regardless of the win-loss record, the team persevered with camaraderie, sportsmanship, and most importantly they had fun. Foss went on to win Sport Club Member of the Year.

Women’s Ice Hockey fought through two especially grueling seasons in 2005/2006 and 2006/2007. Due to extenuating circumstances, they were forced to rebuild the team both years.  The club began the 2005 and 2006 seasons as the underdogs, losing all of their games in the novice division. However, under the strong leadership of club presidents Rachel Davey-Reedy (2005-2006) and Jessie Hockett (2006-2007), and along with mascot Edwin the Chicken, a rubber chicken who donned his own jersey, the team came back in the second half of each season as a force to be reckoned with in the intermediate division. Both Reedy and Hockett went on to win the Sport Club Member of the Year award – Reedy in 2006 and Hockett in 2007. After an impressive two seasons, Women’s Ice Hockey won the Sport Club of the Year award in 2007.

The club disbanded shortly after Hockett’s departure. In the spring of 2013, a team of determined skaters, coaches, and with the assistance incredible UREC coordinators and alumni (Hockett and Foss), the team began the rebuilding process. The club made its second competitive debut in the 2013/2014 season.
