Jr. Shamrocks Sophomore Goalie Kia Castonguay Commits To Clarkson University
The Boston Jr. Shamrocks are proud to announce sophomore goalie Kia Castonguay (Ipswich, MA) has committed to the Clarkson University Golden Knights for the 2017-18 season. In addition to playing on the Jr. Shamrocks U17 JWHL team, Castonguay has been called up to the Boston Shamrocks U19 Elite Team on several occasions.
It took the Golden Knights' Women's Ice Hockey program only 11 years, since its inception in 2003-04, to be crowned the NCAA Women's Championship team in 2013-14. During the 2013-14 season Clarkson won the ECAC Hockey Regular Season title with a 16-2-4 league mark and capped off a 31-5-5 overall record with a 5-4 victory over two-time defending national champion Minnesota in the NCAA Championship game on March 23.
Through its first 11 years the Knights have posted a .613 winning percentage and won 227 games. The Green and Gold have skated to nine winning seasons, participated in the ECAC Hockey playoffs in every year they were eligible and made three NCAA Tournament appearances.
Clarkson University continually launches leaders into the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world's pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and health sciences, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.

Salmon finished the season with 593 saves and a .908 saves percentage. She played her best hockey down the stretch making 40-plus saves in each of her last six games. She had a season-high 58 saves in a 2-1 loss to Neumann on Nov. 23. Salmon notched her first collegiate point assisting Kiley Fewster's shorthanded goal against Elmira.
