Racine Promoted to Women's Hockey Associate Head Coach
ITHACA, N.Y. – Having helped establish the Cornell women's hockey team as one of the elite programs in the country, Edith Racine has been promoted to Associate Head Coach, it was announced today by head coach Doug Derraugh '91. "Coach Edith Racine has been an integral part in every aspect of our success for the last 10 years," Derraugh said. "In evaluating, recruiting and coaching, she is one of the hardest workers in the NCAA and is very much deserving of this promotion." During her tenure as an assistant coach with the Big Red, Racine has helped the program amass a 230-78-33 record. Cornell advanced to the national title game in her first season, starting a run of three consecutive NCAA Frozen Four appearances (2010, 2011 and 2012) in addition to another appearance in the national semifinals last year. The Big Red has won six Ivy League titles, five ECAC Hockey regular season crowns and four ECAC Hockey tournament championships in Racine's 10 years on East Hill. Racine has helped develop six first-team All-America honors among four players, four ECAC Hockey and eight Ivy League Players of the Year and nine Patty Kazmaier top 10 finalists. A former goaltender with a pair of national titles to her credit at Elmira College, she has been instrumental in the continual development of the Big Red's netminders – highlighted by the efforts of Amanda Mazzotta, Lauren Slebodnick, Paula Voorheis and Marlene Boissonnault.
