The men’s and women’s hockey and women’s basketball teams all had to put in overtime this season. And that’s a good thing. All three Cardinal squads earned invitations to the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Playoffs after successful regular seasons. Both men’s and women’s hockey coaches, Bill Moore and Terry Mannor, were named MIAC Coach of the Year in their sports.

The Cardinal men’s hockey team finished second in the regular-season standings and earned the No. 2 seed in the conference playoffs before bowing out in the title game. The women’s basketball team finished fourth in conference and won its first-round tournament game before falling in the semifinals. And the women’s hockey team also finished fourth in conference before falling short in the MIAC tournament quarterfinals.
