Saint Anselm has appointed Jane Kendrett to serve as head coach for the Women’s Hockey School, becoming the third individual to lead the Hawks program since its inception.
Kindret comes to Hilltop from Robert Morris where she worked for two years as Colonial’s Best Assistant Coach. Helping the team rack up 36 wins in just two seasons, Kindret was part of the 2021 CHA title-winning program that made the establishment’s second NCAA appearance after the season.
Robert Morris declared this school unfamiliar Men’s and women’s hockey team pieces.
“Jane’s passion for coaching and sport resonated with us throughout the research process,” St Anselm Athletics Director Daron Montgomery said in a statement. “You will teach, lead, and mentor our student-athletes while building a championship culture on top of the hill. We look forward to working alongside, collectively, with Coach Kindret to raise the brand and profile of women’s ice hockey in Saint Anselm, both within NEWHA and on the Division I stage.” “
“I am delighted to be joining the Hawks family,” Kendrett added. “I cannot thank Daron Montgomery, Phil Roe and Neil Duvall enough for demonstrating their leadership and passion for athletics at St. Anselm during the recruitment process. Since arriving on campus, everyone I have met have been so energetic, supportive, and most of all, proud to be a part of this The special place. Can’t wait to get started and become a part of this premium Hilltop community.”
Prior to joining Robert Morris, Kindret was responsible for starting the NCAA Division III King’s College Women’s Hockey Program in August 2016, and building a team from the ground up.
She spent two years as an alumni assistant coach at Lindenwood from August 2014 to May 2016, overseeing all team video efforts and developing exploratory reports for team opponents while she earned her MBA in 2016.
During the 2013-14 season, Kindret volunteered with NCAA Division III Chatham.
The Winnipeg native was a major figure for four years for Robert Morris before graduating in 2013 with a degree in Sports Management. After being named to the CHA All-Academic Team twice, she helped the colony secure their first post-CHA title in 2012 and finished their career with 13 goals and 30 points in 121 games.
