Katey Stone, the Landry Family Head Coach for Harvard Women’s Ice Hockey, joined the Crimson prior to the 1994-95 season. Through her storied career, Stone has laid claim to 494 wins prior to the start of the 2020-21 season, which will mark her 26th at the helm of the program.
Stone has become one of the highest regarded coaches in college hockey, having guided 24 All America selections, six Patty Kazmaier Award winners (the top honor in women’s college hockey) and 13 Olympians. Additionally, she’s led her team to six ECAC Tournament Championships, 11 Beanpot trophies, 11 NCAA Tournament appearances (in the event’s 20-year history), six Frozen Fours, four NCAA Title games and an AWCHA National Championship.
Stone has been an integral voice in the sport of women’s hockey. She served as a member of the NCAA Championship committee, the NCAA rules committee, the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award selection committee and president of the American Women’s Hockey Coaches Association. In 2020, Stone was named one of Boston’s Most Influential Women.
Stone is dedicated to the on and off ice development of the young women she leads, whether on the Harvard, USA, or Crimson Clinic rosters.
Associate Head Coach
Lee-J Mirasolo was hired as an assistant coach of the Harvard women’s hockey program in June of 2015 and was promoted to Associate Head Coach in August of 2018. During her fifth season with the Crimson in 2019-20, Mirasolo oversaw the defensive unit that backstopped Harvard to its best season since 2014-15 with an 18-14-1 overall record and 15-6-1 ECAC Hockey mark.
Mirasolo came to Cambridge after spending four years as an assistant coach at Princeton, primarily working with the offense and the penalty-kill unit. During her tenure at Princeton, the Tigers continually improved each season. Princeton had its best season since 2010-11, finishing the year at 15-14-2. The Tigers went 13-8-1 in the ECAC and 7-2-1 in Ivy play.
Mirasolo is committed to empowering the young women she coaches and helping them realize that they are capable of more than they think.
Sydney Daniels was added to the women’s ice hockey staff in May of 2018. Daniels joined the staff one year removed from graduation after playing with the NWHL’s Boston Pride for the 2017-18 season.
In her second season with the Crimson, Daniels coached the forward contingent that led Harvard to an 18-14-1 overall record and 15-6-1 ECAC Hockey mark. Daniels returned to Cambridge shortly after completing an impressive career in a Crimson jersey. In her four-year tenure, Daniels collected 87 points on 59 goals and 28 assists and finished her career with a plus-48 rating. She ranks 33rd on the all-time points list and 15th on the all-time goals list. She was a three-time All-Ivy honoree, served as team captain during her senior season, was a two-time ECAC All-Academic selection and was a member of the 2015 Frozen Four team.
“I was humbled and honored every time I put on the crimson jersey, as I return—I am just as humbled to be able to represent this place and program that I love so much, this time, as a coach.”
