The RIT women’s hockey team kicks off its inaugural season Sept. 28 as a Division I program, hosting Mercyhurst University at Ritter Arena.
The Tigers will compete in College Hockey America alongside Syracuse, Penn State, Mercyhurst, Robert Morris and Lindenwood universities. The Tigers will play four games against each opponent—two at home and two on the road—and are eligible for the postseason tournament. RIT is ineligible to compete in the NCAA Tournament until the 2014-2015 season due to a mandatory two-year probationary period following the move from Division III to Division I.
