At the winter break, the Oswego State women's ice hockey team has already experienced success at a level that had not been reached since the program was resurrected in 2006-07. The Lakers and Head Coach Diane Dillon enter 2011 with an overall record of 6-4-3, while carrying with them a five-game winning streak after posting a sweep against Division I Sacred Heart by the scores of 7-0 and 5-2.
The wins marked the first victories for Oswego State against a Division I program, as Sacred Heart held a 4-0 record versus the Lakers by a combined score of 22-7. In addition to this feat, those contests also gave Oswego State the longest winning streak in program history at five games, with previous best streak being three games.
When the Lakers skated to their sixth win on Dec. 11, they reached that win total more than a month earlier than the previous fastest date of Jan. 20, 2007. It also marks the first time that the program has had a winning record headed into the second half of the season.
How has this been accomplished? Coach Dillon has received increased scoring from veterans such as Kelly Collins '12 (6 goals, 2 assists), and an influx of offense from newcomers such as Mackenzie Lee '12 (8 goals, 4 assists) and Megan Howe '14 (4 goals, 6 assists). The squad has also benefited from solid goaltending by Emi Williams '11, who has recorded a strong .949 save percentage and a 1.53 goals-against average.
The strong first half of the season should provide Oswego State with the confidence needed to make a push for the team's second-ever Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference West postseason appearance.
The season continues Jan. 14 in Pennsylvania versus Neumann University. Home games against Chatham Jan. 22 and 23, Buffalo State Feb. 4 and 5 and Castleton State College Feb. 22 are brought to you via webstream in part by the Oswego Alumni Association.
All women's and men's home basketball and hockey games are available on the Web all season long. Check your favorite team's schedule for dates and times.
