St. Thomas has done well recruiting, so expectations will rise next year, the third in D-1.

Abby Garvin (Benilde-St. Margeret’s), Maddy Helmsetter (Holy Family Catholic), Lane DeVries (Chisago Lakes), Cara Sajevic (Gentry Academy), Rylee Bartz (Warroad), Keara Parker (RINK Hockey Academy), Madison Brown (Andover), Ellah Hause (Hill Murray), and Ella Boerger (Andover) are all either incoming next season or soon thereafter.

Boerger was just named Ms. Hockey Minnesota on Sunday.
