Tracy Johnson begins her fourth season as the women's ice hockey head coach in 2016-17 after taking over the program just before the start of its second season in 2013-14.
The 2015-16 season was one for the record books, as the Mustangs posted a 23-3-1 record, good for the nation's third-highest winning percentage (.870). Competing in a conference, Colonial Hockey, for the first time, Stevenson won the league's regular season crown with a 13-0-1 mark, then topped Endicott 2-1 in double overtime to win the league's tournament title. Stevenson had the league's Player of the Year in sophomore Chelsea Blackburn.
In 2014-15, the Mustangs doubled their win total from the previous year, finishing with a program best 16 and its first winning season. Stevenson, who won seven of its final nine games, won the 2015 Codfish Bowl, posted its first-ever win over a ranked opponent and went 3-0-1 against Division I Sacred Heart. The team set the record for goals and assists in a game and had a single player record two hat tricks.
In her first season, Johnson led the Mustangs to a 8-16-1 record, including posting back-to-back wins over SUNY Canton on opening weekend. Stevenson also posted a 4-1 victory over Division I Sacred Heart.

The Lord Jeffs advanced to the NESCAC championship for the sixth consecutive year and were one of only eight teams selected to participate in the 2012 NCAA Division III Women's Ice Hockey Championship.
Prior to Amherst, Johnson spent one year as an assistant coach at Arlington Catholic High School in Massachussetts in 2010-11 while also also working at the USA Hockey Girls 14, Girls 16 and Girls 17 Development Camps.
A 2010 graduate of Boston College, Johnson was a former standout defenseman for the Eagles, serving as a captain as senior season and assistant captain as a junior. She finished her career with a plus-19 rating along with two goals and 11 assists in 125 games. She helped guide Boston College to a pair of appearances in the NCAA Division I Women's Ice Hockey Championship, highlighted by a spot in the 2007 Women's Frozen Four.
