When redshirt freshman defenseman Jincy Dunne signed to play for Ohio State women’s hockey in 2015, she had a resume brimming with on-ice accomplishments and was looking ahead to a promising future at OSU.
“It was a little bit nerve-wracking at first, but once I was out there it was just great. It was so nice to be on the ice again,” Dunne said from Madison as the team prepared to face the top-ranked University of Wisconsin Badgers on Friday.
Her name is Jincy Dunne, a 5-foot, 6-inch tall 17-year-old from The Fulton School in St. Albans. Last month, Jincy, the captain of the U.S Women’s National Under-18 Team, scored the gold-medal-winning goal in overtime against Canada.
A senior at The Fulton School in St. Albans, Dunne is not your typical teen. Her rapid on-ice development over the past year has put her on the fast track to the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.
Jincy Dunne scored twice — including the overtime winner — as the United States edged Canada 3-2 on Monday to win the women’s under-18 hockey championship.
Grace Bizal (Minnetonka, Minn./Hopkins High School) scored in regulation and Kaitlin Burt (Lynn, Mass./Boston College) made 16 saves. U.S. captain Jincy Dunne (O’Fallon, Mo./St. Louis Lady Blues 19U) and Abby Roque (Sault Ste. Marie, Mich./Sault Area High School) added shootout goals to seal the victory.
