In July 2021, Dartmouth women’s hockey made history.
Dartmouth hired Nina Rodgers as an assistant women’s hockey coach. Rodgers is believed to be the first Black woman to coach in NCAA Division 1 hockey.
In August 2022, Union added Olivia Soares, another Black woman, to be an assistant coach.
The two made even more history on Nov. 5 when their teams met, marking the first time two Black women coaches went head to head in a game.
