We know about the struggles of the Union College women's hockey program. We know the team went winless last season and that those struggles caused the resignation of head coach Claudia Asano-Barcomb.

But today, we got a chance to hear about the hopeful rebirth of the program from the new man in charge - head coach Josh Sciba.

Sciba comes to Union by way of Colgate University and we spoke with him about how he plans to rebuild the Dutchmen program. We talked about recruiting, about how you attack recruiting at a school like Union, expectations in the short and long term and about what he's most looking forward to about living in the Capital Region.

I also asked him about the rivalry with RPI and if the success of the men's program on campus helps the women's program in recruiting.

LISTEN HERE to new Union women's hockey coach Josh Sciba:
