Longtime Harvard coach Katey Stone has been named head coach of the 2014 US Olympic women's ice hockey team.
USA Hockey announced Stone as the team's coach during its 75th Anniversary Gala Friday night in Colorado Springs, Colo.
"Katey knows what it takes to build gold-medal teams," said Ron DeGregorio, president of USA Hockey. "We're very excited to have her continue to lead our US women's national team up to and through the 2014 Olympic Winter Games."
The Arlington native will guide the team through the 2014 Olympic Winter Games, including at the Four Nations Cup this November in Finland; at the 2013 International Ice Hockey Federation Women's World Championship in Ottawa, Ontario; and in other scheduled games as part of the build-up to the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.
Stone's 378 career wins is the most among active coaches in NCAA Division I.
"We are confident in Katey's ability to continue to effectively lead and develop this team through the Olympics," said Reagan Carey, director of women's hockey for USA Hockey. "She will be able to leverage and build on all of the work that she and our players have invested the last two years to prepare for gold in 2014."
