Women's Club Ice Hockey 2021

Who We Are:

The University of Pittsburgh Women’s Ice Hockey is a team full of passionate, hardworking student athletes who are very excited to participate at a high level of hockey again after being unable to participate last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will be playing in the College Hockey East League and the American Collegiate Hockey Association’s Women’s Division II. 

We are extremely grateful for our exceptional and passionate volunteer coaches – Kristine Thomas, Trent Thomas, Jared Kapustik, and Doug Rakoczy, who’s enthusiasm and expertise help push us and our team to new heights. We are excited to show the City of Champions what we are made of!


Our Project:

We work hard, physically and mentally, whenever we step on the ice, but getting this team off the ground financially is a mountainous obstacle in and of itself. We are asking for your support to help us raise funds for necessary supplies, uniforms, league and insurance dues, home ice for games and practice times, and referee and EMT costs.


How Can You Help?

There are plenty of ways you can support Pitt Women’s Ice Hockey! Donations, sharing our link, spreading the word, and cheering us on as we go into the rest of our season will be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions or would like more information, feel free to email our president, Katie Sherman, at

How donating through EngagePitt works: every donation is tax deductible (you will receive a receipt) and 100% of the proceeds go directly to Pitt Women’s Ice Hockey. You can donate using one of the pre-determined levels, or choose your own amount. 

We look forward to interacting with you and keeping you up to date as the season and our campaign progress!

Kendall Coyne is #26 on the USA Women’s Olympic team and a color commentator for the San Jose Sharks. She was also the first woman ever to compete in an NHL Skills Competition event. A donation in Kendall’s name will pay for a player’s socks!



Monique Lamoureux is #7 and was the assistant captain for the 2018 USA Women’s Olympic team. She and her sister, Jocelyn, played at Shattuck St. Mary where Sidney Crosby played. A donation in Monique’s name will pay for a player’s jersey!



Meghan Duggan is #10 and served as a captain on the USA Women’s Olympic team where she was a 3-time medalist. She married a fellow Olympian and Canadian player, Gillian Apps, in 2018 and the two had their first child last February. A donation in Meghan’s name will pay for an EMT for a weekend of games!



Gigi Marvin is #19 on the USA Women’s Olympic team and a player on Boston Pride, a NWHL team. Gigi is from Warroard, Minnesota; the same team where Dave Christian, a former NHL player and 1980 gold medalist, and T.J. Oshie, current NHL player and Stanley Champion, grew up. A donation in Gigi’s name will pay for the referees for one of our home games!



Maddie Rooney is #35 and was the goalie for the USA Women’s Olympic team. At the age of 19 and standing at 5’6” she led the 2018 Team USA to a gold medal, where they beat Canada in a shootout. A donation in Maddie’s name will help us pay for another practice slot!


500 Grams

The gold medals won by our Olympic champs weigh in at 500 grams. During the 2018 Winter Olympics, Team USA beat Team Canada 3-2 in an intense shootout. A $500 donation will pay for our CHE dues for the season!


Game-winning Goal

Jocelyn Lamoureux-Davidson score the spectacular game-winning goal in the 2018 Winter Olympics. Jocelyn would later tell the media that deke was practiced over and over again and even had a name—she and her sister called it the “Oops, I Did It Again” after the Britney Spears song. This golden goal will cover 2/3 of a player’s ACHA dues for the year!
