Plattsburgh senior Jenny Kistner:  “Coach preached that we wanted to be in the national championship, but similar to last year, we wanted to end the season on a win and go out on a positive note for Teal (Gove). So it was good to end with a win.”


Plattsburgh coach Kevin Houle:  “I think they carried the play for a great deal of the game. I thought we had some good opportunities and finished.”


Gustavus Adolphus captain Lindsey Hjelm:  “I’m really proud of the effort that the girls put out. I mean, all three periods, I don’t think that you could ask much more from your teammates, and I guess you just really have to relish in that.”

The Cardinals raise the third-place trophy at Wessman Arena in Superior, Wisconsin.
