On Saturday, December 5, FPU’s women’s ice hockey senior forward Karsyn Baker made history when she tallied her 100th career point.
Baker is the first to reach such a milestone in both the men’s and women’s ice hockey programs. Baker’s 100th point came off a third period assist in their 5-1 win over Sacred Heart. Baker had a goal and another assist in the game, both coming in the third period.
“It was a whole line effort,” said Baker. “I passed the puck through the middle to Colleen (Doucette) who then passed it left to Alysha (Ralmo) who scored.” Baker thanked Doucette and Ralmo for being able to put the puck in the net.
Baker joined the team as a freshman in 2012 during the program’s first year. “When I started playing here I didn’t imagine myself reaching 100 points,” said Baker. “I just want to keep pushing forward and help my team be the best we can be.”
Baker also had the first hat trick in the Franklin Pierce University women’s ice hockey program. “I think it’s possible for another player to reach this milestone,” said Baker. “Alaska (Marisa Ketterman) is very close and she has the potential to do it.”
The team is 7-2-1 overall and 4-2 in the conference. The Lady Ravens are on a break until they have back to back games at William Smith College on January 8th and 9th.
Baker’s post-graduation plans are still up in the air, but she hopes to get some experience in the Environmental Science field before applying for graduate school.
