Maurice takes the reins of a Bantam women’s ice hockey program that finished the year with an 18-7-2 mark, won its first NESCAC crown, played in the NCAA Quarterfinals, and entered the year as the No. 7-ranked team in the nation.
Trinity also announced the promotion of Renee Jones to the position of 2015-2016 interim head women’s rowing coach in August.

Jones coached the third varsity to silver medals at both the ECAC and the NERC regattas and guided Trinity’s second varsity to third place in the 2015 NCAA Division III Championship Regatta last spring.
