    I agree great article. I never knew MUN had a womens hockey team. To tom snow. The reason why MUn dont have both mens and womens hockey teams is simple...the $$$. Unlike basketball and soccer, hockey would have to take 20 players plus coaches and all the equipment. Its cost alot more to have a team from NL go to the mainland in hockey than it does for either basketball or soccer. I agree that MUn would have a great team with all the newfoundlanders playing major junior and then going to other AUS schools to continue their education and hockey.

    Excellent article, and very timely with their upcoming games. Hopefully the article will encourage hockey fans to get out and support the good work of Hazen Scarth and his staff and of course the players. Unfortunately many of Newfoundlands brightest female hockey players leave our province to attend Universities with full fledged hockey programs. These student athletes are often the cream of the crop both academically and athletically but must leave if they wish to pursue high level hockey combined with their academics. It would be good for the Province to stem the tide of out migration of these talented student athletes. We already lose many of our brightest who must leave to find work. It puzzles me why MUN doesn't have both male and female hockey teams who would compete in AUS competition. It is a well respected school in other AUS sports such as basketball and soccer, great sports to be sure, but why not participate in Hockey?
