2/13 Shyla Wilson Named MIAC Player of the Week.
For the second straight week a member of the Concordia women's hockey team has been awarded the MIAC player of the Week honor. Last week forward Katie Jacques (So., Tempe, AZ) was honored, and this week goaltender Shyla Wilson (So., Cohasset, MN, Grand Rapids, HS) was named the league's outstanding player. 

Wilson stopped 76 of the 79 shots she faced in Concordia's weekend split with league-leading St. Mary's. On Friday night she stopped 38 shots, and kept the Cobbers close until midway through the third period. On Saturday she recorded her first shutout of the season by stopping all 38 shots she faced. It was only the third time St. Mary's has been shut out this season, and the win broke the Cardinals nine game win streak. The victory marks the second straight weekend Concordia has beaten a nationally ranked team. Last weekend the Cobbers swept UW-Superior, who was ranked seventh at the time.

10/29 2000-2001 Hockey Preview
The 2000-2001 season will be the second year as a varsity program for the Concordia College women's hockey team, and coach Deb Lien is hoping to build up from where the team left off last season. The Cobbers finished their first year with a respectable 9-15 record and came up with big wins against conference rival St. Ben's and non-conference foe UW-River Falls. 

This years team will have a strong backbone with returning All-MIAC Honorable Mention goalie Shyla Wilson (So., Cohasset, MN). Wilson stopped a titanic 750 shots in 20 games last season. She led the MIAC in saves and was second in the league in save percentage. The Cobbers also are hoping that a year of seasoning will help their offensive production as they return their top six scorers from a year ago. Leading the offensive charge will be Sandra Johansson (Jr., Jonstorp, Sweden) , Annie Knierim (So., Glasgow, MT) and Katie Jacques (So., Tempe, AZ). The big question mark will be on the blue line where the shifting of Johansson should strengthen the corps. Hope Aune (Sr., Brainerd, MN) and newcomer Anna Birgenheier (Sheridan, WY) will be counted on to add depth to the defense. The offense will feature Knierim and Jacques along with Lindsay Kurtis (Fr., Phoenix, AZ).

Concordia will be helped by the MIAC schedule which finds them playing four of the first six conference games at home, including the opening series against St. Ben's. The non conference schedule is  highlighted by an away series against the University of Manitoba and a home series against UW-Superior.

If the Cobbers can find the right mix of defense and offense, then the transition from first to second year will be a smooth one and the team can look towards climbing the ladder towards the MIAC playoffs.
