March 7, 2014
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College women's hockey team signed three players to National Letter of Intent for the 2014-15 season. Brooke Boquist, Blair Parent and Madison Sansone will join the Friars as the class of 2018.
"We are very excited to announce the addition of three terrific forwards to our line up for next year," Head Coach Bob Deraneysaid. "All three are dynamic and expected to make an immediate impact on our team and our offense next season."
Boquist comes to the Friars after spending the last two seasons with Shattuck St. Mary's School. During the 2013-14 season, Boquist has captured 35 points in 33 games, on 18 goals and 17 assists. Her 35 points rank her third on the team. Last season, 2012-13, Boquist played in 60 games for Shattuck's U16 team, finishing the season with 55 points on 23 goals and 32 assists. Boquist also led Shattuck to a National Championship title during the 2012-13 season.
Parent joins the Friars after competing with Anoka High and the Minnesota White Caps. This season, Parent has tallied a team-best 30 points on 18 goals and 12 assists in 20 games with Anoka. To date, she has notched two hat tricks and nine multi-point games during the 2013-14 season. Last season, Parent scored 40 points on 20 goals and 20 assists to rank second on the team in scoring.
Sansone has spent the 2013-14 season competing with the Buffalo Bisons U19 girls team. Currently, she has helped the squad to a 24-10-5 record on the year. Sansone and the Bisons are currently on a nine-game winning streak.
"Brooke, Blair and Madison are highly competitive and skilled players that possess outstanding speed, hockey sense, toughness and noses for the net," Deraney elaborated. "The three have the potential to further increase their speed to continue the fast-pace game we as a team like to play. That speed will not only allow them to create their own offense but also allow them to pressure the puck and create turnovers. Their skill and intuition will help create goals off those turnovers for themselves and their teammates."
The Friars will lose five players and return 19 for the 2014-15 season. Three of their four top-scorers will rejoin the Friars in the fall as well.
"We are very excited to add Brooke, Blair, Madison as well as their families to our family," Deraney concluded.
Any additional NLI signees or new comers will be announced at a later date.
