The Castleton women’s hockey team has gotten off to a magnificent start. The team currently sits in second place in the New England Hockey Conference, only behind a Norwhich team that has played two more games.
Goaltending has been key for the Spartans, and leading them this year is senior goaltender Alexis Kalm.
Last week Kalm was named goaltender of the week for the third time already this season. She’s posted a 6-5-0 record with a 2.45 goals against average, .930 save percentage and two shutouts this season.
Last week it was goaltending that would once again make the headlines for the Spartans but this time it wouldn’t be Kalm. Junior goaltender Katlyn Hathaway would notch her first career shutout while getting her first start of the season for the Spartans. Hathaway would make 25 saves in the 2-0 victory over New England College.
Offensively, junior Courtney Gauthier leads the team with four goals and four assits for eight points in 12 games this season.
The 2-0 win would finish off a weekend sweep for the Spatans as they also won on Friday night at home vs Plymouth St 5-3.
The Spartans will finish the 2019 calendar year on Tuesday, as they travel to Utica to play the Pioneers at 7 p.m. at Utica Memorial Auditorium.
