Maryville UNIVERSITY Saints
Founded in 1872, Maryville University is a comprehensive and nationally ranked private institution with an enrollment of more than 9,200 students. Maryville offers more than 90 degrees at the undergraduate, master's, and doctoral levels to students from 50 states and 55 countries.
"The addition of the second club men's hockey team as well as a women's team shows the long-term growth potential of the sport at the collegiate level," Director of Athletics and Recreation Lonnie Folks said. "As more and more players enjoy the sport at the youth and high school levels, Maryville wants to offer these same players the opportunity to continue to compete while earning a quality college education."
The Saints men's club hockey team completed its first season of competition in 2018-19 with a 12-17 record. Next season, the Saints Hockey Program will move into the Maryville University Hockey Center in Chesterfield, Mo. The facility serves as the home competition and practice facility for all three Saints club hockey teams.
