Clarkson University’s Men’s and Women’s Hockey teams are widely regarded as premier programs in NCAA Division I. The Golden Knights women reached the pinnacle of success in 2013-14, claiming the University’s first-ever NCAA National Championship title in any sport this past March to cap off a 31-win campaign. The Clarkson men skated to their best season in six years with 21 victories this past winter to post the program’s 70th winning season.
