The Merrimack Warriors women's ice hockey team is an National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I women's college ice hockey program. The Warriors are a new member of Hockey East.[2] They play at the 3,000-seat J. Thom Lawler Arena in North Andover, Massachusetts, which underwent a major renovation in 2010.

History[edit]

The women's ice hockey program began play in the 2013-14 academic year. The team initially played a club schedule before transitioning to the NCAA in 2015-16 and joining the Hockey East.[3] The college added women's ice hockey, swimming, and water polo as part of its six-sport expansion plans following a settlement with U.S. Department of Education related to a Title IX gender-discrimination complaint.[4][5]
