Mailbag: Quinnipiac hockey, Yale softball and much more

Well, I’m back from vacation and it’s time to empty out the mailbag.

Here’s a bunch of items, many of them from Quinnipiac.

Pecknold signs an extension

Quinnipiac University Director of Athletics Jack McDonald has announced that Men's Ice Hockey Head Coach Rand Pecknold has signed a contract extension through the 2016-17 season. Terms of the contract have not been disclosed.
In 2011-12, Rand Pecknold, in his 18th season as Quinnipiac's head coach, guided the Bobcats to its 16th consecutive non-losing season with a 20-14-6 overall mark, including a 9-8-5 record in ECAC Hockey, giving Pecknold 20-win seasons in 14 out of his 18 years behind the bench for Quinnipiac, as well as his 11th in 14 years at the Division I level. In addition, Quinnipiac’s 13-4-3 home record matches the 2009-10 team’s mark

Yale names Goodwin softball coach

Jen Goodwin, who spent the last two years as the Assistant Executive Director for the National Fastpitch Coaches Association, has been named the head softball coach at Yale.
Goodwin also has extensive Ivy League coaching experience. She spent two years as an assistant at Harvard, recruiting two-time Ivy League Pitcher of the Year Rachel Brown and helping guide the Crimson to the 2007 Ivy League title, and was Dartmouth’s interim head coach in 2004


Quinnipiac women’s basketball team starts tour of Italy

After a long, eight-hour flight, the Quinnipiac's Women's Basketball team landed in Rome to begin their 10-day tour of beautiful Italy.
To kick-off the start of their adventure, the Bobcats hopped on their tour bus for what would be many breathtaking views of the ancient city. In their sights, the Bobcats saw the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, the Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II, Arch of Constantine, Saint Peter's Basilica and many landmarks that make up Rome.
