Women's Ice Hockey Adds Goalie Katie Burt
Aug. 27, 2014
The women's ice hockey team has added goalie Katie Burt to the roster. The Lynn, Massachusetts native hails from Buckingham Browne & Nichols in Cambridge and was selected to the US Women's National U-18 team this past spring.
Burt earned Independent School League All-League honors all three years at Buckingham Browne & Nichols. During her sophomore year, she was co-MVP of the ISL. In addition, Burt has attended USA Select Development camps for three years. She is also a two-time attendee of the Strelow Goaltending USA Select camp.
With the US Women's National U-18 team, Burt played alongside four other incoming Boston College freshmen including defenseman Toni Ann Miano and forwards Kenzie Kent, Tori Sullivan, and Megan Keller.
Burt played a key role in helping the U.S. win a silver medal against Canada at the 2014 International Ice Hockey Federation U.S. Women's World Championship in Budapest, Hungary in March. She tallied a shutout, made 13 saves, and allowed just one goal throughout the tournament to record a 92.86 save percentage.
"We're happy to have Katie joining our team this year. She brings her international experience and will compete hard day in and day out. She is also the type of student-athlete that will fit in well with our team dynamic," said head coach Katie Crowley.
With the addition of Burt, the women's ice hockey roster will feature three goalies, including freshman Gabri Switaj and junior Taylor Blake.
