PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Providence women's ice hockey head coach Bob Deraney and his coaching staff have announced the signing of two additional players for the class of 2013. The Friars will welcome Nicole Anderson (Jordan, Minn.) and Emily Groth (Monona, Wis.) in the fall of 2009.
Anderson, a 6-foot left-shot forward, comes to Providence after a successful career at Shakopee High School where she scored over 100 goals. She was a key reason her high school advanced farther in the playoffs than ever before. Anderson was a recipient of the Athena Award at Shakopee, given to the senior female student-athlete who exemplifies excellence in athletics and academics.
"We envision Nicole helping our program in the same fashion. She's a powerful forward who will make an immediate impact on our offense" Deraney said.
Groth is a 5-foot-6 right shot defender from Monona Grove High School. She plays for the Madison Capitals, a former club team of assistant coach Meredith Roth.
"Emily Groth is a defenseman who is athletic and has a great knowledge of the game. Her passion for the sport and willingness to compete will serve as a catalyst for her teammates on a daily basis. We are looking forward to having Emily join our program" Roth said.
Coach Deraney added, "We are very excited to add Emily and Nicole to our already strong recruiting class for 2009-10 of Jessica Cohen (Anchorage, Alaska) and Jessica Vella (Pickering, Ontario)."
