2008-2009 Season Begins!

We recently had some technical difficulties posting to the website, but are back in business now just as the season begins.

After a successful clinic with local youth, we began practice on the NESCAC-mandated November 1. After just six practices, we had our first game. On Saturday, November 8 at Fairfield, Bates Hockey began the season with a 13-5 victory at the Wonderland of Ice. Megan Arnold made her debut in net and Kathleen Boyland, Eve Boonseng, Caitlin Demko, Anne Mueller, and Rachel Laaf all contributed with goals. Special congratulations to Kara Sullivan, Rachel Kaplan, and Tess Glancey, who scored their first career goals.

On Sunday, Bates defeated Wheaton College in a friendly exhibition game. Next weekend, Bates makes the trek to Columbia University for a Saturday night game, followed by a game at Smith on Sunday evening.

GREAT JOB LADIES! I cannot wait to see you play! Keep up the good work and know I am rooting for you from the Great White North!

P.S. I will be around this weekend and would love to see any of you before you head out for Columbia!
