You say Edina has players that might star on other A teams, Factually they have 2nd and 3rd liners that would star on most AA teams. Every year, Edina CUTS players that would start (and maybe star) on other HS teams. It's a real shame, as lots of girls play all the way through the system (on the to...

D3

Wish people could find a place to report those girls continuing their hockey careers at D3 schools. Thousands of fans watch those games in MN & WI every year - 6 D1 programs in those states vs. 19 D3 teams. If you know of young women continuing at a MN or WI D3 school post 'em here! No, it's not D1 ...

Look, I'm just trying to figure out which MIAC schools improved themselves with their incoming MN HS players. Still would love to hear some names if anyone's aware. As to your assertion that D3 kids have better chances at employment, depends on the student, the major, and the school. Anyone who's pa...

Yep, know all about it. But it's not very good at adding MN players and I figure people here would be able to fill in the MN kids at the MN schools

DIII Commits?

I know this board tends to get all pumped up on D1 (rightly so) but lots of young ladies continue their careers in one of many D3 schools both in-state and out.

Now that declaration day has come, does anyone have any news on those girls choosing that route?

I feel terrible. My kid is playing college hockey and I didn't get to spend the $775. But hey, Winny still gets my money because the kid skates in OS' college skate.

To say there's not enough interest is missing the point. If this is truly a celebration of hockey in Minnesota, you don't ignore the very large percentage of girls and young women playing hockey. You just don't. If you didn't want to interrupt the section playoffs, just grab a D3 college game, ther...

What happened at BSM? We always heard the denials about their recruiting when those D1 players all gathered there, but I'm now inclined to believe them. They haven't had any significant additions in years. Did they even put anyone into college this year? BSM only had two seniors, both were top of t...

This won't go over well, but here goes. I know that 90% of the people on this Type-A discussion board think D1 is the Holy Grail, the best end result. Not for everyone it isn't. Outside of the Ivy League schools, I wouldn't want my daughter playing D1 hockey (not that she was good enough to anyway)...

Graduating Senior Looking For Summer Team/Tournaments

We weren't sure that our daughter would be playing in college, mostly because the places she was looking at didn't have Women's hockey. Long story short, she's excited to keep playing next year in the MIAC, but dad didn't sign her up for anything this summer. She can play either forward or defense, ...

I wish schools could move more easily from AA to A. BSM was down this year, and I personally would've preferred playing in A, but you can't just go up & down just because you're so young. Heck if we would've played 6A, we could've made another tournament. Blake was as good as anyone we played this y...

Re: HM gifts a game to Maple Grove

BSM isn't much of a challenge this year. Look, I know we're not as good this year - very very young... But no need to be catty. We did manage to hold Mighty Mighty EP to a close 3-2 loss the year, and were actually leading MG until the last minute and got a tie. We really haven't been out of many g...
