Former Elmira goalie Marshall joins RIT women’s coaching staff

Rochester Institute of Technology announced on Wednesday that former NCAA goaltending standout Lisa Marshall will join the RIT women’s hockey staff as an assistant coach for the 2014-15 season.

Marshall began her collegiate career at Wayne State before transferring to Elmira for her sophomore season. At Elmira, Marshall went 32-8-1 with a 1.22 GAA with a .947 save percentage and 23 shutouts in three seasons, helping lead the Soaring Eagles to the 2013 Division III national championship.

“We are excited to bring Lisa to RIT,” said RIT head coach Scott McDonald in a statement. “She was a very good collegiate goaltender, who will work closely with our goaltenders, and also assist in all aspects of the program. Lisa was able to play her collegiate career under three coaches and be part of a national championship team, which made her a strong candidate. She brings youth and a contagious energy to our staff and players and will be a strong assistant coach.”

“This is an opportunity I am really excited for, working with great coaches in Scott [McDonald] and [assistant coach] Matt (Woodard),” added Marshall. “It is great to be able to stay in the game in a new role.”

Marshall received her bachelor’s degree in English literature with an associate’s degree in business administration from Elmira in 2014. She was a two-year member of Elmira’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and also served as a student worker in the athletics and sports medicine offices.
