Those who know Harvard women’s hockey coach Katey Stone will tell you what makes her successful: her competitive fire and drive to win.

In 16 seasons at Harvard, that fire has driven Stone to do it all. She has led the Crimson to six ECAC regular season titles, five ECAC tournament championships, five Ivy League Championships, seven NCAA tournament appearances, three NCAA title game appearances, and the American Women Hockey Coaches Association (AWCHA) national championship in 1999. That season she was named AWCHA Women’s Coach of the Year.

Her past awards and accomplishments go on and on, but on Feb. 26 Stone found herself celebrating one more — and it was a big one. With the Crimson’s 5-1 win over Princeton in the ECAC tournament opener, Stone became the women’s college hockey all-time wins leader, surpassing former University of Minnesota and Colby College head coach Laura Halldorson.
