The Continentals (14-6-2 overall) are eighth in Monday's USCHO.com poll and ninth in the D3hockey.com poll. Hamilton was receiving votes in both polls last week but swept a two-game weekend series against NESCAC rival Amherst College for the first time since 2002-03. Amherst was ranked ninth by USCHO.com last week. The Continentals have set a program record with 14 wins this season.
Hamilton has won six of its last seven games and is tied with Middlebury College for first place in the conference standings. The Continentals travel to Connecticut College for the last two games of the regular season on Friday, Feb. 17, and Saturday, Feb. 18. The Camels are in third place in the standings and are receiving votes in both polls.
Hamilton is tied for third in NCAA Division III in scoring defense with 1.18 goals allowed per game and the Continentals are fourth in penalty kill at 92.8 percent. Hamilton has allowed just five power-play goals all season. The Continentals are led by NESCAC player of the week Katie Parkman '17 (9 goals, 12 assists this season) and goaltender Sam Walther '18 (1.20 GAA, .953 save pct.), who is among the division's leaders in goals against average, save percentage and shutouts.
