Varsity Ice Hockey - Girls

Signup for an alert reminder.

Loomis Chaffee girls’ ice hockey has a long and proud tradition of excellence going back to the earliest days of girls’ prep school hockey. In the years since girls first started playing in the New England prep schools, the league has grown tremendously along with the sport, and now Loomis Chaffee plays in one of the top girls’ high school hockey leagues in the country. The team is highly competitive in Division I, regularly playing the best teams and consistently finishing in the top tier of the league.

Coaches Liz Leyden, Chuck Vernon, and Maggie Kennedy '05 work hard to combine individual skill development with systematic team play daily in practice. In addition to pushing each player to become a better hockey player, to become her “best self,” we emphasize teamwork, passion, commitment, communication, character, and excellence - in the classroom, on the ice and in life. By creating an atmosphere that supports and challenges the student-athletes, we prepare players to succeed both at Loomis Chaffee and the next level. Players have recently gone on to play collegiate hockey at schools such as Boston College, Colgate, Dartmouth, Harvard, Holy Cross, Northeastern, Princeton, St. Lawrence, UConn, UNH, Quinnipiac, Amherst, Bowdoin, Middlebury and Trinity among others.

It’s an exciting time to play hockey at Loomis as the team is poised to make a strong run in the next several years. Leyden is dedicated to bringing in the strongest student-athletes possible and the team is comprised of players from across the country. For more information about our program please contact head coach, Liz Leyden at liz_leyden@loomis.org or (860)-687-6110.

The Women's World Hockey Championship is being held in Buffalo, NY and Loomis Chaffee senior Brittany Bugalski is one of two goalies representing Team USA on the 2015 U.S. Women's National Under-18 Team.

Several Loomis teams host or head to holiday tournaments this week. Here is your guide to what is happening on and off the Island.

The girls varsity hockey team opened the winter season with two strong games at home against Northfield Mount Hermon and Nobles. The team won 1-0 over the Hoggers on Wednesday and tied the Bulldogs on Saturday.

For several of the Loomis girls varsity hockey players, it has been a busy summer chock full of hockey. Senior Brittany Bugalski, sophomore Linda Essery, and incoming junior Paige Capistran all attended the U18 USA Hockey National Development Camp while sophomore Sharon Frankel and Head Coach Liz Leyden took part in the U14/15 USA Hockey National Development Camp in St. Cloud, Minnesota for a week in July.

The Loomis girls hockey team knew they had to play hard last week to land a spot in the post-season tournament. They needed to post wins against both Northfield Mount Hermon and Deerfield, playing both games in a span of less than 24 hours.

The girls hockey team took on a strong Pomfret squad Saturday at home and edged out the visiting Griffins in an exciting 2-1 overtime finish.

The boys and girls hockey teams handed losses to Hotchkiss on Saturday as the boys topped the Bearcats 3-1 and the girls returned from Lakeville with a 2-1 victory.

The girls varsity hockey team faced Westminster School in an away game on Monday and returned with a 3-2 victory as the Pelicans claimed their first Founders League win of the season.

Loomis Chaffee opened the girls hockey season at home on Wednesday when Deerfield came to the Island for a game that almost every year is decided by one goal. That pattern held true again as the Savage Johnson Rink hosted a great tilt between these two top New England teams.
