Colgate’s Larose ’21 Nominated For NCAA Woman Of The Year


INDIANAPOLIS – National recognition continues to follow Colgate Women’s Hockey, and this time it’s Coralie Larose ’21, who was selected as a nominee for the 2021 NCAA Woman of the Year.
Rooted in Title IX and directed by the NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics, the NCAA Woman of the Year program celebrates the accomplishments of female college athletes across all three divisions. Over 220,000 women are competing in college sports, and the NCAA received 535 nominations for this prestigious award.
Next, all nominees who competed in a sport not sponsored by their school’s core conference, all associate conference nominees and all independent nominees will be considered in a pool for advancement to the conference round of nominees. A selection committee will decide the nominees to move forward. The nominee(s) selected from this pool will be notified by the NCAA, and all conference-round nominees will be announced on ncaa.org in early August.
Larose’s recognition comes on the heels of signing a professional contract in Switzerland with Neuchâtel Hockey Academy in April. She was one of 12 finalists for the 2021 Mandi Schwartz Student-Athlete of the Year, presented annually to an ECAC Hockey women’s player for demonstrating excellence in the classroom and in their community.
Colgate Athletics recognized Larose with the 2021 Athletics Director Leadership Award for her impact on and off the ice. A double-major in educational studies and French, Larose is a three-time ECAC Hockey All-Academic Team member. She led the team’s Autism Awareness events, including a Learn to Skate program and fundraising for the Adopt-A-Classroom campaign. 
On the ice, Larose helped Colgate claim its first-ever ECAC Hockey regular season and tournament championships in 2021. The Raiders reached the NCAA tournament for the second time in four years behind a 15-7-1 record and 8-4 conference mark. A two-time captain, Larose compiled 22 goals, 32 assists, and 54 points during her Colgate career.
