Girls Hockey - The Division 1 girls co-op ice hockey team is represented by three Big Blue sophomores, Sydney Cresta, forward, Caroline Kinne, defense and Sarah Ryan, goalie. The team kicked off the season with a home opener loss to Masco. Cresta scored the only goal for the co-op and drew 4 penalties. Kinne was strong on the penalty kill all evening, then ironically took a roughing penalty defending Ryan during a scrum in front of the net. night the team took another loss this time against Winthrop. Cresta and Kinne worked hard on the penalty kill and power play, both girls again logging heavy minutes in the game. Ryan had 26 saves to keep the game close.
