Saint Mary’s senior Delaney Wolf wins Hockey Humanitarian Award

Saint Mary’s women’s hockey is making history. Senior captain Delaney Wolf has won the 2021 Hockey Humanitarian Award, which recognizes athletes who are leaders both on and off the ice.

Wolf is a two-time finalist and first Saint Mary’s winner for this award, which considers athletes from every level of college hockey.

Wolf”s teammates have unanimously voted her captain the last several years, she has a 4.0 GPA while double majoring in biochemistry and Spanish, and not even the pandemic could stop her from finding ways to volunteer, whether at a humane society or by virtually tutoring youth.

“I know my coaches and everyone were pretty excited,” Wolf said. “It’s good for us to put out there that we’re student-athletes who do everything in the community also, and I know I’m not the only one.”

“We do volunteering with our team and we give a minimum requirement of two hours a month, and she’s doing 30-plus hours,” head coach Sarah Murray said of Wolf. “We’re not telling her to do that; she’s doing it because she wants to.

“She means a lot to this program–just the character that she brings.”
