BURLINGTON, Vt. – Senior defenseman Becky Daley, a native of Rutland, Vermont, has been named captain of the University of Vermont women’s hockey team. Juniors Kami Cote (Copperton, Utah) and Jackie Duerr (Longlake, Minn.) will serve as assistant captains this season. Daley, an assistant captain last season, has been an anchor on defense for the Catamounts for the past three years. She has played in 60 straight games over the past two years and 82 games in her career. Daley provides Vermont with a physical presence on the blue line.

She has played in 25 games in two years and owns a career save percentage of .898. Duerr is a talented forward for the Catamounts. She owns the distinction of scoring the game-winning goal in Vermont’s first Division I victory, a 3-2 overtime win at Boston College last season. She finished her sophomore season ranked fourth on the team in scoring with five points on two goals and three assists. The Catamounts hit the ice for formal practice on September 22nd. Vermont opens the regular season on October 10th and 11th with a pair of games at Wisconsin.
