Commentary: The women’s hockey program at UND died because few were supporting it
“Bring back women’s hockey,” writes former Grand Forks Herald publisher Mike Jacobs in a column this week.
As you readers will remember the women’s hockey program at the University of North Dakota was axed by President Mark Kennedy, a decision which created no small amount of controversy. North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp even jumped into the debate ahead of what she knew would be a hotly contested election year.
You gotta love politicians. Ever the opportunists.
Anyway, the controversy was renewed when some alums of that program, the Lamoreux twins, won gold at the Olympic games in South Korea,which prompted the call from Jacobs.
