Suffolk adding women’s hockey, program set to start in 2018-19 season

Suffolk announced Monday that women’s hockey will be added as a varsity sport for the 2018-19 season.

Women’s hockey is one of six new sports teams being added at the school.

“This is an exciting time for Suffolk athletics,” said Suffolk director of athletics Cary McConnell in a statement. “To announce today that we are expanding competitive and educational settings for future Rams is a yet another step in Suffolk’s mission to recognize and develop student’s full potential while wearing blue and gold and afterwards.”

The Suffolk men’s team currently competes in the ECAC Northeast.
