Sept. 28, 2007

Providence, RI - Brown Head Women's Ice Hockey Coach Digit Murphy has announced the addition of Edith Racine to her staff as a volunteer assistant. Racine, a 2005 graduate of Elmira College, will work primarily with the team's goaltenders.

Racine is one of the top goaltenders in Division III women's hockey history, having played four years at Elmira. She ranks third all-time with a .933 save percentage, and ranks in the top 15 in career saves, goals against average, and winning percentage. She is a two-time All-American, having been named First Team in 2005 and Second Team in 2003.

Racine led Elmira to National Championships in 2002 and 2003, and was the winning goaltender in both championship contests. She also backstopped the Soaring Eagles to four consecutive ECAC West Championships, and was named the ECAC West Goaltender of the Year in 2005, when Elmira advanced to the Division III National Championship game before falling to Middlebury.

Racine graduated Elmira with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with a specialization in marketing. She worked for two years as a French and mathematics teacher at Portsmouth Abbey School in Portsmouth, R.I., where she also coached varsity ice hockey, lacrosse, and golf, as well as JV soccer. She also has been an instructor at Dartmouth's Elite Hockey Camp for six years.

Racine lives with her fiancée in Middletown, R.I.
