Colleen Coyne '89 was a standout athlete at Tabor Academy from the moment she stepped on campus. She was a three-sport varsity athlete in soccer, hockey and lacrosse. Throughout her Tabor sports career, Colleen took pride in being an intense competitor, loyal teammate and inclusive leader. These traits helped Colleen earn the respect of her teammates and lead all three teams as captain during her senior year. During her final hockey season, the Seawolves secured an undefeated regular season (19-0) only to fall to Northfield Mount Herman during Tabor's playoff run.

Following Tabor, Colleen attended the University of New Hampshire where she focused on hockey. In all four seasons as a Wildcat, she and her teammates appeared in the ECAC Championship Game, capturing two of the four titles. Following her final season as a player, Colleen served as an Assistant Coach for the Wildcats.

After college, Colleen spent seven years as a member of the Women's United States Select, National and Olympic Hockey teams. She competed in several international competitions, earning silver medals at three World Championship tournaments in 1992, 1994 and 1997. A career highlight was as a member of the 1998 Women's Olympic Hockey Team when, in Nagano, Japan, Team USA finally bested their arch rival, Team Canada, to capture gold for the USA, and the first Olympic gold medal for women's ice hockey.
