Congratulations to 19UAAA Defenseman, Makayla Javier, on her commitment to Mercyhurst University for the 2022-23 season.
The Mercyhurst Lakers play in the College Hockey America (CHA) Conference, alongside Penn State, Syracuse, Lindenwood, and RIT. Mercyhurst is located in Erie, Pennsylvania and has only two Division I teams on campus: Women's Ice Hockey & Men's Ice Hockey.
Javier is in her 4th season with the Jr. Flyers and was voted as an Alternate Captain by her teammates last season. She is an imposing presence in all 3 zones and can make an impact in any situation.
Congrats, MJ! Mercyhurst Class of 2026.

What a heartbreaking end to the season as the 14 Tier I girls fell to the Minnesota Green Giants 3-2 in overtime. After falling behind 1-0, Nina Rossi scored a power play goal in the 2nd period on a Lauren Gallagher rebound. Lily Straub also assisted on the tying goal.
The teams entered the 3rd period tied when Nicola Forth gave the Junior Flyers a 2-1 lead assisted by Camryn Grimly.
Minnesota was able to tie the game with under 3 seconds left in regulation and their goalie pulled, and eventually won the game in overtime .
Super high level games and a great season for the Junior Flyers Girls
