Frank Pagliuca has produced quite the dynasty on the ice with the St. Mary’s of Lynn girls’ hockey program: a 175-14-11 record since the 2005-06 season, four state championships, resulting in a few bus trips to and from the TD Garden.
There are also no less than seven former Spartans suiting up for college programs this season.
On Nov. 1 in Manchester, N.H., the opening night of the 2013-14 season for both programs, there were a combined five former St. Mary’s players taking ice for either host Saint Anselm College or the University of Massachusetts Boston.
Matched up against her former teammates, UMass-Boston junior defenseman Angela Dandreo extended a customary greeting to Saint Anselm senior forward Courtney Winters, a fellow Swampscott native.
