ORLANDO – Harvard was one of four institutions to receive the U.S. Olympic Achievement Award Tuesday at the Learfield Sports Directors' Cup Awards Luncheon at the NACDA National Convention in Orlando.

The U.S. Olympic Achievement Award is given to institutions whose current student-athletes and/or coaches won medals at the 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Katey Stone, the Landry Family Head Coach for Harvard Women's Ice Hockey, as well as student-athletes, Lyndsey Fry '15, Michelle Picard '16 and Josephine Pucci '15 were all members of the 2014 Olympic team that won silver at the 2014 Games in Sochi, Russia in women's ice hockey.

In leading the U.S. to silver, Stone became the first female to lead a U.S. national hockey team to a medal on the ice.

Also earning the U.S. Olympic Achievement Award Tuesday were Boston College (Alex Carpenter), Northeastern (Kendall Coyne) and Minnesota (Amanda Kessel, Lee Stecklein), all in ice hockey.
