NEW LONDON, Conn.--Alice Denny, a 2013 graduate of Hartwick College, has been named as the assistant men's and women's water polo coach at Connecticut College.
At Hartwick, Denny played varsity water polo for Coach Alan Huckins. The Hawks posted a combined record of 51-17 (.750) during her two seasons of action in 2010 and 2011.
Since graduating, Denny has gained valuable coaching experience teaching boys and girls in her hometown of Mundelein, Ill. She was the assistant boy's water polo coach at Mundelein High from 2013-2014 and has served as the head girl's water polo coach at MHS since the fall of 2014.
Denny received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology with a minor in Environmental Science and Policy from Hartwick in the spring of 2013.
Connecticut College head men's and women's water polo coach Matt Anderson welcomes the addition of Denny for what promises to be another exciting season of water polo in the Whaling City.
"I'm excited to have Alice join Camel Water Polo," Coach Anderson said. "She brings good high school experience coaching both the men and women, and has a good knowledge of the game, having had a chance to play for one of the most innovative coaches in water polo-Alan Huckins at Hartwick. She will hit the ground running at the Junior Olympics in Northern California next week and I look forward to her joining Connecticut College."
The Connecticut College men's water polo team will open the 2016 regular season Friday, September 9 with an 8:30 p.m. match against the Wagner College Seahawks in Princeton, N.J.
