The Oswego State’s Women’s Ice Hockey team has been long overlooked by many. Even with their success in past years, they often find themselves overshadowed by the men’s team. Along with their obvious effort to improve the team, they also improve the community with their projects such as the Big Sister-Little Sister program, volunteering, and participation in community fundraisers.

The team has been on a big winning streak since their second game. They have won 5 games out of the 6 they have played this season. Their first game was against Plattsburgh, when they lost 1-7, but they came back the next day, beating them 3-2. On December 2nd they blew Canton away with a score of 10-0, and the following day they blew them away again with a final score of 6-1. The same night of their second game against Canton the team held a toy drive for the United Way.

During men’s hockey games, the women’s team participates in the “Chuck-a-Puck” where you pay $1 for a squishy green puck, and after the second period you are instructed to throw them onto the ice. After all the pucks are on the ice, it is determined who came closest to the center of the Laker emblem and the winning puck’s number is announced for a reward. Once they choose the puck, the women’s team skates out to clean it all up..

For many years the women’s team has been conducting a Big Sister Little Sister program, where each Lady Laker receives a young 10U player as her little sister. These young players get to be stick girls for the team before each game, sit on the bench for introductions and for the national anthem, and wear their big sisters’ jerseys during the game. “The big sister little sister program was great because it gave me an older “sister” to look up to and cheer for at her hockey games. Since I don’t have any sisters, it was fun having one at hockey. I think that doing that program helped me be a leader for some of the younger girls in the program. I had a lot of fun doing it each year,” said Julia Roman, current member of the Girls Varsity Hockey team.
