10/29 2000-2001 Hockey Preview
The 2000-2001 season will be the second year
as a varsity program for the Concordia College women's hockey team, and
Deb Lien is hoping to build up from where
the team left off last season. The Cobbers finished their first year with
a respectable 9-15 record and came up with big wins against conference
rival St. Ben's and non-conference foe UW-River Falls.
This years team will have a strong backbone with
returning All-MIAC Honorable Mention goalie Shyla
Wilson (So., Cohasset, MN). Wilson stopped a titanic 750 shots in 20
games last season. She led the MIAC in saves and was second in the league
in save percentage. The Cobbers also are hoping that a year of seasoning
will help their offensive production as they return their top six scorers
from a year ago. Leading the offensive charge will be Sandra
Johansson (Jr., Jonstorp, Sweden) , Annie
Knierim (So., Glasgow, MT) and Katie
Jacques (So., Tempe, AZ). The big question mark will be on the blue
line where the shifting of Johansson should strengthen the corps. Hope
Aune (Sr., Brainerd, MN) and newcomer Anna
Birgenheier (Sheridan, WY) will be counted on to add depth to the defense.
The offense will feature Knierim and Jacques along with Lindsay
Kurtis (Fr., Phoenix, AZ).
Concordia will be helped by the MIAC schedule
which finds them playing four of the first six conference games at home,
including the opening series against St. Ben's. The non conference schedule
is highlighted by an away series against the University of Manitoba
and a home series against UW-Superior.
If the Cobbers can find the right mix of defense
and offense, then the transition from first to second year will be a smooth
one and the team can look towards climbing the ladder towards the MIAC
