TRANSCRIPT

To the Parents, Sponsors, Midshipmen, and fans of the Navy Womens Hockey Team I am honored that I got to Coach again at Navy. It has been a privilege to serve as the Head Coach of this great team. We have made the playoffs 3 years straight now, but the ending wasnt like last year and we didnt win the Championship. No matter, this is still a great team and a hard playing team. This year, several important Seniors leave us. Ella Starr is being commissioned as a 2nd Lt. in the Marine Corps. Ellas desire to continue playing hockey prompted her to start the team. When she goes, her legacy will live on as the Womens Hockey Team continues to build to Club status. Kristen Storto is being commissioned as an Ensign in the Navy. Without Kristen, there would be no Coach Murphy. Kristens Dad asked his Academy friend, who is my friend now, to find someone to help the team move forward. That someone proved to be me. Ashley Spring is being commissioned as a 2nd Lt in the Marine Corp. Ashley also started with the team in the first game, always the first one on the ice, moved to defense where she became a stalwart. Thats what she said?!? Liz Ziek, who also was here on day 1, is being commissioned in the Navy and remains close with all of the players and currently is spending some time with her brother before he deploys. Kay Lantz, another future Marine Corp 2nd Lt., started with the team on day 1, and was deployed to Qatar for a semester, came back and played, is to be married after commissioning. Jen Groger, started with us in year 2, will be commissioned as a 2nd Lt in the Marine Corps, and worked hard every time she was on the ice. The underclassmen looked up to her, and truly , she was an asset to my team. Our Announcer, Jake Amon, is also included in this book as he was and has been the only voice of the Womens games. He has been a great showman/DJ to keep the spirit in the crowd. And lastly, because he got his Bio in so late, is our only professionally trained scorekeeper, Carson Morales , who, I believe messed up some points for Emily Cooper on purpose. Just Kidding!! Truly, you are all remarkable people who showed other teams who the Women of the Navy Hockey and their supporters are. You all were part of the Championship year, and every future player is in your debt. I hope that you all go on to bigger and better things, and meet your 5 year plans with ease. I hope that hockey runs in your blood for a lifetime, and generations beyond. I hope you all remember what we all did here. Go Navy, Beat Army!!!
