Like a freshly cracked book, the 12th regular season of DVCHC women's hockey opened on October 5th, 2013.
Since that time, 134 days have turned as pages. 84 games have served as thrilling chapters; chronicling breakaways, denied attempts, 1st shifts in a college uniform.
UPENN went 10-0-0. Navy 10-2-0. 10 teams finished at or above .500. Many struggled to fill rosters. Raise funds. Imagine their next season without the seniors.
Rowan, Towson & the Phoenix took their historic 1st steps as a team, scored historic 1st goals, became an important part of the family.
19 rinks played a part in the epic, hosting games across 5 states & Washington, DC. The league held its first outdoor game. 716 goals were scored, 3,928 saves recorded and 5x as many shots were blocked.
236 athletes are listed in its index; each with a story, a bruise, a first.
Kaila Frazier scored 52 points in 11 games. Christy Pastucha and Jacqueline Denning had 35 goals. Leanne Niemi averaged 62 saves per game. Abby Shaw topped nearly all of D2's player stats & 5 different goalies had more than 1 shutout.
Today, there are 3 pages left. One final chapter to be written. This weekend, Harrington DE hosts the 2014 Frozen Fair; the epic conclusion of a season and the final chance for its many characters to give it all they've got.
Find out how the story ends!
We can't wait!
