Not long after helping the University of Minnesota women’s hockey team wrap up the national championship, Lee Stecklein packed her bags for a trip to Sweden. It wasn’t a celebratory vacation, but rather another hockey-related excursion.
March was a pretty successful month for former members of the Roseville Area High School girls hockey team. As was chronicled in last week’s Review, two former Raiders played in and won the NCAA Division I women’s hockey Frozen Four.
With a pair of basketball teams that advanced at least as far as the section final, it’s not surprising that Roseville Area High School had some members of those teams amass some nice post-season honors.
For most of the sophomores on the University of Minnesota women’s hockey team, the national championship they won on Sunday was their first. They suffered through a loss in the national final a year ago in their first season as Golden Gophers.
