Roster

Manitoba

In October 2002, The University of Winnipeg iced its third season of women's hockey. We play an average of about 40 games per season including exhibition games against Senior AA women's teams, other university teams and men's teams and we participated in two tournaments.

Jill Mathez has been Head Coach since the team's debut and this year she is joined by assistant coaches Patrick Townley and Anthony D'Angelo as well as Nicole Chappellaz, Erica Wilson and Greg VanLeeuwen as support staff.

We prepared to compete at the provincial championship in hopes of representing the province of Manitoba at the Esso Women's National Championship. The University of Winnipeg is proud of the accomplishments the team has made in the past three years and is excited about the future of women's hockey.
