HANOVER, N.H. – Dartmouth women’s hockey senior Hailey Noronha will serve as team captain for the 2017-18 season. It is just the third time since the 2010-11 campaign that just one player will wear the ‘C’ on their sweater. 

Classmate Morgan Turner and junior Caroline Shaunessy will be alternate captains. All three Big Green players will be serving in leadership roles for the first time.

Last season, Noronha appeared in all 28 games, tallying one goal and tacking on three assists for four points. A stay-at-home defenseman, she is far more concerned with defensive responsibilities than points, as demonstrated by her leading the nation in blocked shots per game (3.04) and being fifth in total blocks (85). She did come on late in the season offensively, finishing the year on a four-game point streak.

Turner also took to the ice in all 28 games in 2016-17, ending the year with one goal and one assist. Both of her points came against conference opponents; the first one was a helper against eventual national champion Clarkson, while her goal was scored in the 4-1 victory over Yale on Senior Day.

In her 28 games as a sophomore, Shaunessy scored twice and added four assists for a career-high six points. Her first point came in the 4-0 shutout over Maine and her first marker came two games later against Colgate.

On Friday, Oct. 13, Dartmouth will host Holy Cross in a scrimmage before taking on McGill in its annual exhibition game two days later. The Big Green will officially kick off the regular season the following Friday, Oct. 20 at Harvard.
