PITTSBURGH, PA.- Chatham University has a new leader behind the bench for one of the longer-running women's hockey programs in the nation. learned less than a month ago that Jason Evans was no longer in that position, and the Pittsburgh-area instutition worked quickly to identify a candidate within their own conference. On Monday, Chatham announced the hiring of Utica assistant coach Jessica Newstrom as its new women's head coach. 

"I'm extremely honored to be a part of Chatham University and grateful for the opportunity to take over the leadership of our Women's Ice Hockey Program," Newstrom said.  "I'm very excited about entering into the new UCHC Conference. I believe it's going to be a great opportunity to be a competitive team in the conference right off the bat, and compete for a conference championship in the near future.  I want to make it a priority that our student-athletes be leaders on the ice, in the classroom, and within the community."

"Coach Newstrom is a great fit for Chatham," Athletic Director Leonard Trevino said. "Her national recruiting ties and experience with top hockey programs has prepared her to take over the reins of our program. We are confident with her at the helm and excited for the future of our women's ice hockey program."

Newstrom most recently served as an assistant at Utica College for two seasons running from 2015-17. While at Utica, she assisted with the operations of the program under Dave Clausen, including running off-ice training, study hall monitoring, recruiting potential student-athletes, fundraising, team travel, and game and practice preparation. She was also the head coach of the school's fledgling Junior Varsity program for the two seasons it has existed. 

While at Utica she aided the cause in the best season in program history with a record of 19-8-1 and an appearance in the ECAC Women's West championship game. That team included one All-American, two All-Rookie team players and five All-Conference Honorees. She also coached goaltender Keira Goin to the majority of her program-record 13 career shutouts. 

Prior to Utica, she was an assistant ice hockey coach at Centennial High School for two years as well as a goalie instructor at Premier Goaltending Development. She was a two-time All-MIAC selection as a goaltender at Bethel University.

On Friday, Trinity edged St. Norbert, 3-2, in an up-tempo and fan-friendly game in which Trinity's Samuel Johnson score his first goal of the season, but a big one it was as it proved to be the game-winner.

In the other semifinal, Adrian battled back from a 4-2 third period deficit to force overtime with Norwich, but in the end it the Cadets' Ian Williams scored the extra session game-winner to propel the Cadets into the title game.

In that title game, Norwich held off a strong second period surge by Trinity to pull away in the third for a 4-1 win that was a lot closer than the score indicates.

Long story short, The Cadets claimed their fourth national title and first since 2010. But game action wasn't all that went on at the Utica AUD, so if you missed any of it get caught up on all of it right here with our Live at the AUD! news feed.
