"It is not every day that you get to add a person like Jenny Potter to your athletic staff," Trinity athletics director Mike Renwick said. "I am looking very forward to the implementation of her vision for our women's ice hockey program and her mentorship of our student-athletes. Her overall life experiences will bring a very real world outlook to the mentoring of our student-athletes. She will be a great addition to the College and our staff."
Potter played four seasons at UMD and is still the program's all-time leading scorer with 256 career points, and she also won a NCAA Division I championship with the Bulldogs in 2003.
