Stone Selected to Lead U.S. Women's National Program in 2010-11

USA Hockey Women's National Festival Roster Continues to Take Shape

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Katey Stone, head women's ice hockey coach at Harvard University, will lead the U.S. Women's National Program throughout the 2010-11 season. Her duties will begin at the upcoming USA Hockey Women's National Festival in Lake Placid, N.Y.
Stone will also serve as head coach for Team USA at the 2010 Women's Four Nations Cup in Canada in November and the 2011 International Ice Hockey Federation World Women's Championship in Switzerland in April.

Stone most recently served as the head coach of the U.S. Women's Select Team at the 2008 Women's Four Nations Cup. There, Team USA captured the tournament title for the first time since 2003. Prior to that, Stone led the U.S. to the gold medal at the first-ever IIHF World Women's U18 Championship in January 2008, and also coached the U.S. Women's Under-18 Team at the 2007 Under-18 Series and the U.S. Women's Under-22 Select Team at the 2006 Under-22 Series.

Along with her accomplishments on the international stage, Stone is the winningest coach in the history of women’s hockey at Harvard and one of the most successful coaches ever in the women’s collegiate game. Stone recently completed her 16th season behind the Harvard bench, during which time she became the winningest Division I women's hockey coach of all time with 339 victories.

Stone has led the Crimson to a 339-144-27 (.691) record in her tenure, which included the 1999 American Women's Collegiate Hockey Alliance national championship, three straight appearances in the NCAA championship game (2003, 2004, 2005), eight NCAA tournament appearances in the event’s 10-year history, six ECAC Hockey regular-season titles, five ECAC Hockey tournament championships, five Ivy League titles and 10 Beanpot championships.
In addition to the team success under Stone, she has coached some of the best individual talent in the sport of women’s hockey. In 16 years at Harvard, Stone has coached nine Olympians and six of the 13 winners of the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award, presented annually to the top player in NCAA Division I women’s ice hockey.

Stone graduated from the University of New Hampshire in 1989 with a degree in physical education. She was a captain and four-year letter winner in both hockey and lacrosse for the Wildcats. Stone helped the hockey team win ECAC championships in 1986 and 1987 and the lacrosse team capture an NCAA title in 1985. She earned All-ECAC honors in hockey and was a two-time All-America selection in lacrosse.

Before coaching at Harvard, Stone served as assistant athletic director and coach at Tabor Academy (Mass.) and had coaching stints at Northfield Mount Hermon School (Mass.) and Phillips Exeter Academy (N.H.).
