BOSTON – The 2018 NCAA Division III Women's Ice Hockey National Champion Norwich University women's ice hockey team will be making an appearance at Fenway Park on Tuesday, April 10.

Norwich defeated Elmira College 2-1 on Saturday, March 17 at Kreitzberg Arena to win their second national championship and first since 2011. The Cadets finished the 2018 season with a remarkable 27-1-3 record and finished on an 18-game unbeaten streak.
