This longtime Saints hockey follower salutes the Clarkson women on their national championship. That said, let me add that I am positively thrilled!
Had it been eligible, the awesome Minnesota team that Clarkson faced might well have medaled at the recent Sochi Olympics and cast a long shadow at the Frozen Four. Yet the Knights never blinked and were full value in their win.
What further proof could be needed to show that the 11-year-old womens program at Clarkson has come to full fruition under co-coaches Shannon and Matt Desrosiers?
Well done, Clarkson women! Well done, north country college hockey!
