With the New Year behind us, your Rams are back in the Fort preparing for the tough semester ahead. Although the preparation is not always enjoyable, the women are still having some fun. On January 14, the ladies will be going to Nederland, Colorado, to put on a skills clinic and scrimmage the local men’s team (Click here for more information). Monday, January 16th, the women will play their rivals, University of Colorado. This game will take place at EPIC at 3:45pm. The team will then be on their way to Michigan, where they will face Grand Valley University (8-6) on January 20th and 21st, then Davenport University (5-12) on January 22nd. These teams are both ranked above the Rams at 7 and 14, respectively. This competition will be fierce. Hopefully the Rams will be able to step up their game and create an upset, similar as to what happened last year when the team traveled to Michigan and defeated Adrian College.
This semester also brings the return of Senior Hannah Samlowski from her semester at sea. Samlowski will be wearing 15 and the team is excited for her strong defensive presence. Although the team will be gaining one defenseman, they have another traveling to Prague for a semester abroad. The team wishes the best for Maria King and she will be truly missed on and off the ice.
