She went 3-1-2 in six Beanpot starts and stopped 61 of 66 shots en route to the 2019 title. Schroeder is BU’s all-time leader in career goals-against average and save percentage. Schroeder plays for New York in the PWHL, where she recently made history with a 29-save shutout in the team's inaugural game. Host Erica L. Ayala spoke to PWHL New York goaltender Corinne Schroeder before the induction ceremony on January 23, 2024.Postscript: Sadly, Schroeder was unable to attend the event.

This episode was initially recorded on Twitter Spaces on June 12, 2023 TRIGGER WARNING:  racism, homophobia, mental/emotional abuse, eating disorders, body shaming, gaslighting, sexual harassment, hazing. The Boston Globe & The Athletic articles reported allegations of mistreatment and misconduct toward players by Harvard Women's Hockey Coach Katey Stone and claims of hazing within the program. The university hired the law firm Jenner & Block to conduct the review in March. A school spokesperson confirmed the investigation was complete, per The Athletic, on June 6th. Founding 4 Pod Discussion PointsWhere do you draw the line when it comes to players’ experiences? AR: What one player might laugh off as harmless fun, another player could get extremely affected by, and both experiences are valid and should be seen as such. How do you toe that line? What are the nuances of a discussion like that, and when should enough be enough?How indicative is this of a larger problem in women’s hockey?  ★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★
