March 14, 2002 Stingers women's hockey team settles for fifth in Regina



The Stingers women’s hockey team finished in fifth place at the CIS national championship recently at the University of Regina.

The team lost its first two games of the tournament 5-2 to the top-ranked University of Alberta Pandas and 2-1 to the University of Toronto Varsity Blues, last year’s CIS champions.

The two losses put the Stingers in the fifth-place game, where they dumped the St. Francis Xavier University X-Women 8-4.

Rookie forward Dominique Rancour was the only Stinger named to the CIS national championship all-star team.

Suzanne Kaye and Marie-Claude Allard were named to the CIS women’s hockey All-Canadian team. This is the first time that both players have been named to the list.
