History[edit]

Highlights[edit]

The Bemidji State University intercollegiate women's ice hockey program began competition in the 1998-1999 season. The first head coach was Ruthann Cantile.

at Bemidji State University On February 27, 2010, Bemidji State ended its 14 game playoff losing streak in a 2-1 victory over St. Cloud State.[1] The next day, the Beavers defeated St. Cloud State in Game 3, and advanced to the WCHA Final Face-Off for the first time in school history. Zuzana Tomcikova had 27 saves and the win was the Beavers 12th win of the season. It ties the school record for most wins in a season (accomplished in 2001-02).[2] The Beavers advanced to play the Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs in the WCHA semi-finals but were eliminated.

On October 16, 2010, Alana McElhinney made a career-high 56 saves. In the game, Bemidji State had its first-ever win over a No. 1-ranked team as they defeated the Mercyhurst Lakers by a 5-3 mark.[3] In addition, this was the second women's game ever played at the new Bemidji Regional Event Center.

October 29–30, 2010: Erin Cody had the biggest weekend of her collegiate career. She was involved in all seven of the Bemidji State's goals, as the Beavers swept St. Cloud State. Cody had five goals and two assists, and was a factor in both game-winning goals. Cody earned the First Star of the Game honors in both games. In the first game, Cody scored a natural hat trick (a power-play, shorthanded, and even-strength goal). All three goals were scored in the first period and set a Beavers record for most goals scored by a single player in one period. In the second game, Cody had two goals and two assists.[4]

On January 28, 2012, the Badgers hosted a record crowd of 12,402 at the Kohl Center as Wisconsin swept the Bemidji State Beavers. Alex Rigby made 28 saves to obtain her sixth shutout of the campaign. Her rival between the pipes, Bemidji State goaltender Zuzana Tomcikova made 32 saves.[5]

The Beavers made history on March 7, 2015 as they defeated the Minnesota Golden Gophers by a 1-0 tally in the semifinals of the WCHA Final Face-Off. The game winning goal was scored by Stephanie Anderson in the third period.[6] Beavers goaltender Brittni Mowat made 37 saves, registering her seventh shutout of the season, a new program record. In addition, it marked the first time that the Beavers advanced to the championship game of the WCHA Final Face-Off.
