Colgate To Add Three To Veteran Squad

April Cornell the third year coach for Colgate Raiders will return 23 veterans next year to  a squad that had no seniors. Colgate’s record was 4-14 with 0-6 league result. However, they gave Lafayette a good game falling 4-5 on a cold rainy Hamilton, New York morning.  It was the most goals scored by Colgate last fall. Although efficient their offense during the season managed only 21 goals for 7.9 shots per game and only 70 corners.

They have to date only 3 recruits that I can discover, one goalie, and two midfielders. That doesn’t mean more are on the way or perhaps are their foreigners in the pipeline to beef up the current squad?

For the moment here are the known commitments:

Sloan Isen:


She will join two other goalkeepers on the Raider team. A Pa. native she will come from Westtown Prep and WC Eagles.

Emily Kness:


This midfielder/ attacker comes from the very successful Lakeland HS program in New York and played for the Hudson Valley Hockey Club

Mari Kniezewski:

She is the other Pa native and went to Mt St Joseph and played for Mystx. She will be a midfield/ defender for the Raiders
