The Gustavus Adolphus women’s hockey team participated in the 2011 NCAA Division III women’s hockey tournament March 18-19 in Rochester, New York.
It marked second consecutive year the Gusties qualified for the national semifinals.
Gustavus defeated UW-River Falls 4-1 in the NCAA quarterfinals to advance to New York.
In the national semifinals, the Gusties lost a heartbreaker to Norwich University by the score of 5-4. The Cadets won the national championship a day later. In the third place game, Middlebury defeated Gustavus 5-0.
Despite the two losses, the Gusties had a great season, winning the MIAC regular season title and the MIAC playoff championship. Gustavus finished the year with a 22-5-3 record.
I serve as the goalie/assistant coach of Gustavus, a role I have held for the past 10 years.
