The team also finished the season fourth in the MIAC, the highest finish ever for a Concordia women's hockey team.

She scored all her points with the game in the balance, as she netted the Cobbers' first and third goals, and assisted on the second. For the weekend Jacques was a +7 and had 13 shots on goal.
11/6 Cobbers Ranked Ninth in the Nation.

2001-02 Women's Hockey Preview.
Caplan will be hoping to improve on last season's sixth-place finish in the MIAC. The team finished with a 9-9 record in conference, which is a seven game improvement from their 2-11-1 mark in 1999-00. Last season's dramatic rise to the top of the MIAC also included series splits with three of the four MIAC playoff teams. With the heart of their roster back in 2001-02 the Cobbers are looking to make a run at the four-team conference playoff, a goal they fell just shy of last season.
In the net Concordia returns All-MIAC goalie Shyla Wilson (Jr., Cohasset, Minn.). Wilson led the league in saves and save percentage last season and kept the Cobbers close in the majority of their games. Wilson's season-ending goals against average of 3.05 is a misleading statistic as she never allowed more than four goals in a game after the opening weekend series to St. Ben's, and was instrumental in Concordia's victories over playoff participants St. Thomas, St. Kate's and St. Mary's.
