Season Outlook/Notes:
Season Outlook/Notes
 Varsity womens hockey. Kevin Gorg likes the sound of it. Gorg is the  head coach of the inaugural varsity team at St. Thomas.

Gorg, a former all-MIAC goalie, hopes to bring some elements of his playing  experience in the Toms nationally regarded mens program  to the womens program.

 But first, hes just trying to teach the basics, put players in the right spots, and prepare them for the competition that lies ahead.

 "We obviously have a young team, and one I think will only get better, Gorg said. "Its a very hard-working group. Were trying to keep things light in practice. I think the players are especially glad they dont have the 5:30 a.m. practices the club team were stuck taking with so little ice time available before."

 A look at the player bios reveals some interesting facts -- there are standout golfers and soccer players; a karate black belt; even an entry in the Miss Minnesota pagaent. Like most womens college teams, the Toms don't have a wealth of experienced players, but Gorg said thats part of the fun the 1998-99 season will offer. "We dont have a lot of experienced players right now," Gorg said. "Were just dealing with
the fundamentals of the game -- making good passes, improving our skating and making better shots. The attitude has been great."

 Sophomore Michelle Campbell, a co-captain, played several seasons with the Minnesota Thoroughbreds are will be one of the top players. The other captain is Amy Frey, the lone senior. Junior Lisa Schlatter,
a varsity golfer for UST, and soph Jodi Stepaniak, a womens soccer standout for the Toms, bring some excellent athletic ability. Schlatter and Stepaniak are among eight players who played on the St. Thomas-St. Catherine club team last season, joining Frey; sophomores Tina Simonson and Melissa Easton; and juniors Kate Leas, Sarah Midler and Libby Winzeler.

 UST has 19 players out this year and plays a 25-game schedule. Gorg expects to add at least 10 players each year. "Our goal in the future is to have 40-50 players come out and eventually have a junior-varsity team," Gorg said. "We want to be like the St. Thomas men -- a dominant MIAC program and one of the
nations best Division III programs."
