A former successful Massachusetts boys' high school (Dedham H.S.), Dooley compiled a career mark of 162-115-1 behind the Harvard bench.

Meghan Fardelmann played a lead role in helping the Eagles to their first Women's Beanpot titles in 2006 and 2007. A four-year Beanpot participant in the BC Class of 2009, Fardelmann played on the first winning squad in 2006 scoring the GWG in the opening round and setting up the GW in the final and then earned Beanpot MVP honors in 2007 when she had five points overall and three goals in the championship game.

She was the Beanpot MVP as a junior in 1996 and was a co-captain on the Huskies' 1997 champs. Wagner, who had Beanpot stats of 7-6-13 in nine Beanpot games, scored both the GTG and GWG in NU's 4-3 OT win over BC in the 1996 final.

The women's Beanpot Hall of Fame was established in 2008, during the tournament's 30th anniversary.
