Again, although we gave it our all, we came up short, losing in a shootout against Queens University. Obviously not the start we would have liked. We ended up playing our rivals, the Manitoba Bisons for 5th place and as a team we decided we did not want to end our season on a loss. So we took this game very seriously and ended up winning 5-2.
As a 5th year student-athlete, it is hard to come to terms with the fact that our team couldn’t achieve a spot in the top 3, but we came to realize that this year we had the closest team ever. We all respected one another and there was no drama all year, which is somewhat unheard of in a female sport. So although we weren’t successful on the ice, we were successful off the ice and created some amazing friendships. I am fortunate enough to finish my career off with something such as this.
