FIVE THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR BEACONS

1. For the first time ever in program history, the Beacons ended the 2015-16 season ranked in the top-10 (10th) on the final D3Hockey.com National Poll

2. The Beacons received votes on both national preseason coaches polls (USCHO.com/D3Hockey.com) for the first time in program history

3. The Beacons were picked to finish fourth on the NEHC Preseason Coaches Poll, but received their first-ever first place vote and 161 points, the most ever on a conference preseason poll in the program's history

4. The Beacons return to two All-Conference honorees from last season in Rachel Myette (Pembroke, Mass.) and Arielle Gallucci (Warren, N.J.).  MYette was named to the Honor Roll, while Gallucci earned All-Rookie Team honors

5. UMass Boston's trip to Pennsylvania to take part in the Neumann University Invitational marks the first-ever trip to PA for the Beacons in program history.  They will face familiar foe in Stevenson University, and will either take on first-time opponent Lebanon Valley College or the host Knights for the first time since the 2009 Codfish Bowl Tournament on the second day of the tournament.
