Women athletes garner honors and awards

The women’s powerlifting club’s performance in the International Powerlifting World Cup led them to a dominating victory in the global competition last week. Their victory here follows their previous victory in April at the 2016 USA Powerlifting Collegiate National Championships. Additionally, women’s hockey alumnae Kendall Coyne and Tori Hickel also both made news this week. Coyne has been nominated for Best Female Athlete and Top College Athlete in The Globies, the Boston Globe’s annual award show to honor athletes and teams in New England. Her fellow hockey alumna Hickel signed a pro contract last week with  Djurgårdens IF of the Swedish Hockey League (SHL).
