At the end of a half-season that was more than satisfactory, the NAIT Ooks absorbed a 5-2 defeat from the Red Deer Queens and Ooks head coach Deanna Martin made it clear that changes are headed their way.
Only a few hours after her first-place team bounced back from a shutout loss to defeat the MacEwan Griffins 3-1, NAIT Ooks head coach Deanna Martin referred to a pair of her favourite teaching subjects: character and pride.
Three welcome warmup sessions during a layoff in Alberta college competition have served the NAIT Ooks well as they prepare for scheduled games this weekend against the MacEwan Griffins.
The Ooks women's hockey team defeated the Red Deer College Queens 5-4 in the team's lone game this past weekend. The team will next see action Nov. 25 &26 vs. MacEwan.
The NAIT Ooks women's hockey team host the Red Deer College Queens this Saturday at NAIT Arena at 6pm on Women's Hockey Day.
Deanna Iwanicka (Coach)
