High Expectations at STU

Daily Gleaner Article
The St. Francis Xavier X-Women, as host team, are guaranteed one of two Atlantic University Sport spots at the CIS women's hockey nationals next March.

Peter Murphy wants his St. Thomas Tommies to grab the other AUS berth.

Tired of finishing middle-of-the-pack in the Atlantic conference - now down to seven teams with the off-season clubbing of the University of New Brunswick Varsity Reds - Murphy feels the Tommies are ready to take a step or two up.

"We don't play to lose," he said. "We think we can get into that top three and move on. Getting to nationals is our goal. The girls have it in their mind that that's where they want to be (March 19-22)."
