College Hockey:
Penn State tabs women’s assistant coaches

Penn State has named Maurice “Mo” Stroemel and Gina Kearns to the coaching staff for the women’s team that will start play in 2012.

Stroemel, who coached Penn State’s club team the past four seasons, has been named associate head coach, while Kearns was an assistant coach at Neumann the past two seasons and will assume the same role at PSU.

Both Stroemel and Kearns played at Boston University

“I have known Mo for 15 years as a colleague and friend and I am grateful to have him on board,” said Penn State head coach Josh Brandwene in a press release. “He has been a consistently positive influence on Penn State hockey for almost two decades and his passion for and commitment to Penn State hockey will be instrumental in our success.

“Gina’s experience as a player in the first four years of a brand new college program, her outstanding leadership ability and coaching experience make her a terrific addition. She will be a fantastic role model for the women in our program.”
