Season Outlook/Notes:

(98-99: 25 gls, 25 assists)

D Jr. 5-7

(98-99: 13 gls, 13 assists)

After posting a 6-5-1 record in their first year as a club team in '98-99, the Cobbers enter '99-00 as a varsity sport in the MIAC. Second year coach Deb Lien has ten players back  from last year's team, led by last year's No. 1 and No. 3 scorers, Sandra Johansson (W, So., 5-9, Jonstorp, Sweden,  25 gls, 25 assists) and Jeni Nigg (W, Jr., 5-7, Moorhead, 13 gls, 13 assists.)

Last year's season as a club team was clearly a building year. Head coach Lien said, “I was very pleased with the improvement throughout our entire season in 1998-1999. It was a learning experience for both the players and myself based on the wide range of abilities and knowledge of the game."

“With the strengths of our returning players, plus the addition of key freshman, we hope to be in contention for the conference title,”  says Lien.

More from Lien:

“I think that our greatest improvement over last year could be in the nets.  Vying for the starting goalie position will be Jill Leonetti from Spokane, WA and Shyla Wilson from Grand Rapids, MN.  All three goalies are very good.  They are aggressive and play their angles very well. I am looking for a great deal of competitiveness from those two for the starting position.

"Our strength up front will be keyed by Sandra Johansson, our leading scorer from a year ago.  She is the type of player who can dominate a game.”

Returning players Anna Grafstrom, Roseau, MN and Lindsay Hanson, Fargo, ND will provide leadership as well.  Freshman players Katie Jacques, Tempe, AZ, Annie Knierim, Bozeman, MT, and Kristi Stahl, Bismarck, ND are expected to add strength up front.

"One of our strengths during the 1999-2000 season will be our defenders," says Lien. "We have 5 returning players at that position.  I would expect Jeni Nigg and Shelly Buchholz to be our defensive leaders on the ice.  Both players are smart and can control the puck very well."

The Cobbers open their season at Hamline Nov. 6-7 and then return home for games with Iowa State Nov. 13 at 7:00 and the 14th at 1:00.
