First and foremost, we had three amazing young women graduate. Captain, and president, Forward, Sarina Perret, is graduating with an honors degree in Health and Exercise Science-Sports Medicine.

Forward, Alicia Ziff will be graduating with a double major in International Studies and Political Science, with a minor in French. Next year, Alicia will be moving to France to teach English. Then in the future, she wants to move to New Zealand but eventually reside in Washington D.C. with a career. Goalie, Mackenzie Roberts, will be graduating with a double major in Psychology and Human Development and Family Studies. She has been accepted into the Master of Education graduate program, focusing on Early Childhood Education, here at CSU and will be returning for her final year with the team.
As a student run organization, we give much appreciation to our board of officers, these girls do all of the work behind the scenes so that there is a team. For the past two years we have been thankful for Sarina Perret as our president. We now have elected Alex Reda to fill those shoes, we have full faith in her abilities to do so! Since our Vice President has moved up, we elected Kristen Perry as VP. She will work closely with Alex to help everything run smoothly. Additionally, Katie Hurley has been elected Treasurer. Megan Johnston received the position of Peer Development and Community Education officer, and Stephanie Talone will be our new Travel and Safety officer. These young girls are very capable and confident individuals, we are excited for their contribution to the team.
Since our inaugural season, our Faculty Advisor, Peter Jacobs, has collected cowbells for the team. Each season, every player has signed a new cowbell, it's become a tradition we look forward to each year. This season Peter came up with a new addition to our team tradition. From here forth one player will be awarded the cowbell as our MVP. With all her work on and off the ice, we awarded our Captain, Sarina Perret, the MVP for the 2017-18 season!
