Had a hell of a time trying to find more info on Women's Hockey, did find this article from the GAZETTE
https://www.niagara-gazette.com/sports/ ... 95d18.html

It is sad that the Women's Hockey Program is ignored save for the Banners well hidden on the wall of the Dwyer Arena. It looks like the history of Women's Hockey brief existence is condemned to fade away in the memories of those who participated and the in the fans memories, much like the Football program. For the life of me, I cannot understand why Niagara does not have an actual Athletic and Alumni Hall of Fame on Campus. I still remember the exhibits we had in the Gallagher Center prior to the renovation of the lobby.

Market the HOF as well as the Castellani Museum in the tourist brochures and maybe a couple visitors from the Power Vista or those riding the Tourist Shuttle which stops on Campus pop in for a visit. Could it hurt ??

I thought the athletic hall of fame was put on a computer in the lobby of Gallagher or was that just for club football? The Alumni of Distinction Award recipients are honored on a wall in the Academic Center lobby. I was on the informal nomination committee at one time for that award but I haven't heard much about it lately.

I didn't realize the NU HOF was removed from the lobby of the GC. The HOF should be on display somewhere on campus.

The Women's Hockey team advanced to the Frozen 4 in 2002 which was a TREMENDOUS ACHIEVEMENT. For the life of me, I cannot understand why this banner is hidden away in Dwyer Arena.

Hall of Fame put on a computer?, the women’s program had an NCAA trophy, national team memorabilia, and banners none of which are displayed for people to see. No idea when the trophy went.

Was the team ever inducted into the HOF as a group? Nothing would surprise me. Joe Mc Carthy is in the National Baseball Hall of Fame but not the NU Sports Hall of Fame because he didn’t graduate. Lou Gehrig and Jackie Robinson didn’t graduate their alma maters but they were the first inductees into the Columbia and UCLA Sports Hall of Fame respectfully.

No, we’ve never been inducted in the hall of fame as a group like our male counterparts who once made the elite eight.

Maybe a logical question to address with Simon. Lots of down time these days.

It's a year late, but we should have the Bonnies-NU game in KeyBank honoring Murphy and Lanier, and their teams of 50 years ago...it would be a sellout.

I think the only way that game sells out would be with a time machine.
