Clarkson University stops Minnesota’s 26-game win streak to win NCAA Women’s Hockey title

The women’s hockey program at Clarkson University in rural Potsdam, New York has put the school in the national spotlight.

The Golden Knights have ended Minnesota’s two-year reign as NCAA hockey champions with a 5-4 win on Sunday in Hamden, Connecticut.

Clarkson, who ends the season at 31-5-5, is the first hockey team other than Minnesota, Wisconsin or Minnesota-Duluth to win the women’s national title.

#1-ranked Minnesota ends the season at 38-2-1 and had their 26-game winning streak snapped.

Shannon MacAulay scored on a breakaway down the ice in the third period with 4:16 to go for the game-winner. MacAulay also scored on a backhanded shot earlier in the contest. All told, she had two goals, two assists for Clarkson.

Members of the ECAC since 2003, Clarkson has a unique situation with Matt and Shannon Desrosiers serving as co-coaches.

In a surprise move, Loth leaves Otterbein for Western Connecticut State

In a surprise move late last Thursday, May 17, head football coach Joe Loth surprised Columbus area media, the town of Westerville and Otterbein fans when rumors started circulating around town that he was leaving his alma mater, to sign a multi-year contract to rebuild the program at Western Connecticut State.

Loth’s leaving probably even shook the media relations department because until this day, there has not even been an article written declaring his resignation or leaving the university. That is strange in itself.

Western Connecticut State University is a public state university, established in 1903. It has an enrollment of 5,907 and located in Danbury, Connecticut. It is an NCAA Division III school with 14 varsity sports. Their nickname is the Colonials and play in two conferences, the ECAC, Eastern College Athletic Conference and the LEC, Little East Conference.

The rebuilding job at Western Connecticut State will take longer than at Otterbein. But Loth will recruit from talent in Connecticut, New York City and Long Island.

The football team plays in the New Jersey Athletic Conference, where it has had a tough time under former coach John Burrell, going 0-10, 0-10, 2-8 and 2-8. Its last winning season was in 2005.

The 45-year-old Loth could not pass up the chance at WCSU where he is very familiar with the town and university. He was the Colonials defensive coordinator from 1993-1997. His wife, Keri graduated from the school as well.

Loth is certainly good at rebuilding. During his tenure at Otterbein, he saw the football program receive a shot in the arm with new facilities for the football program, including a renovated Memorial Stadium and football field. Also, before he was hired by former athletic director Dick Reynolds, the Cardinals had only one winning season in 23 years. In his final seven seasons, the program had four winning years and saw the school’s first berth into the NCAA Division III playoffs in 2008 with a 9-2 record and 8-1 in the OAC, second to Mount Union. Loth was named OAC Coach of the Year and Ohio Coach of the Year that season.
