AC's Messuri to play at Hobart

In 2012 and '13, Megan Messuri backstopped Arlington Catholic to the Division 1 girls' state hockey final, winning the state title in 2012. Next year, the goaltender will join Hobart and William Smith Colleges first-year women's hockey program, her father tells ESPN Boston.

Messuri was between the pipes for the Cougars win as a sophomore and also helped them to finals appearance against league rival St. Mary's of Lynn as a junior. Last year, Messuri played at the Northwood School in Lake Placid, N.Y.

"This is a great opportunity to lead a college team into it's inaugural year in the NCAA," Messuri wrote in an email. "While I fully expect my team to experience a learning curve, my aspiration is to impact my team to ensure we make a title run."
