UMass Boston Drops Interim Tag For Women’s Hockey Coach Dom Lozzi

BOSTON, Mass. – After a nationwide search, Vice Chancellor of Athletics and Recreation Charlie Titus announced that Dom Lozzi's interim tag has been dropped and will be staying on as the program's sixth fulltime coach.

Lozzi, who led the Beacons to the New England Hockey Conference Tournament semi-final round during her interim season, will welcome back a talented group of veteran skaters.  In her first season behind the Beacons bench, Lozzi compiled a record of 10-15-2, 5-9-2 in the New England Hockey Conference.

"Dominique is an excellent addition to our coaching group. She brings the requisite coaching skills, and a pleasing personality. While her coaching strategies lean to the traditional she has displayed an increasing penchant for innovation. Her passion and work ethic are right in line with our expectations," said Titus. 

In her first Codfish Bowl, she led UMass Boston to their first win over Bowdoin College since 2011.  She would later lead the Beacons to a huge win over second-seed Suffolk University in the quarterfinal round of the NEHC Tournament, before nearly taking down the top-seeded Cadets of Norwich University (2-3).

Lozzi came to the harbor campus after spending three seasons at her alma mater Bowdoin College.  Prior to that stint she coached at conference rival Trinity College in Hartford, CT, where she helped the Bantams to a league title in 2015. 

A standout player with the Polar Bears.  During her career, she earned New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Rookie of the Year honors, and was named the team captain as a senior.  In 101 games played, she totaled 85 career points before graduating in 2012.
