Contact the Whitecaps
Last season the Minnesota Whitecaps played three NCAA Division I teams – University of Minnesota, University of North Dakota, and St. Cloud State – going 3-2 in a total of five college games. In the upcoming 2016-2017 season, that number of games will double to ten, as the Whitecaps have two-game series scheduled with the University of Minnesota, University of Minnesota-Duluth, Bemidji State University, Lindenwood University, and Syracuse University.
“As an independent team, scheduling can be a bit of a challenge,” said Laura Halldorson, who works with the Whitecaps. “Fortunately, there has been increased interest amongst the colleges in playing the Whitecaps, and we are thankful for the opportunities to play these universities. It didn’t work out to schedule any games against the NWHL or CWHL this season, so these NCAA games are very important to our players."
The team will also play Shattuck-St. Mary’s School a couple of times again, and hopes to add a few more games or scrimmages in the second half of the season.
