Step up efforts for women’s hockey

Letter to the Editor | Sunday, September 16, 2007

I recently saw the announcement that Notre Dame will be investing in a new hockey facility. This is a great move for the University and the CCHA. In order to build a hockey culture, I believe it is critical to have a competitive women’s program as well. Most of the recent NCAA men’s championship teams have women’s programs, often great ones!What is Notre Dame’s plan for women’s division I hockey? Just look outside: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Harvard, St. Cloud State and Ohio State have programs. Plus, we might as well beat the Wolverines to it.
