The Lancers are coming off of a frustrating injury-riddled season that saw them finish 13-17. A home victory over Northwestern, who was ranked #2 in the country at the time, was the highlight of the season. Road wins over Dakota State University and Briar Cliff University helped show the mental toughness and physical ability of the squad. Having only one player (Allison De Kam) healthy enough to play in every half and having eight different players start games made it difficult for the Lancers to find consistency and rhythm from game to game. Allison De Kam and Kelli Curtis will be lost from this squad.
The positive part of such a fluid changing lineup was that many returners saw a lot of minutes that helped them become better players. The program is returning eight players with starting experience that includes four previous All-GPAC honorees. Senior April Winne, who redshirted last year with a torn ACL, was a 2012-13 All-GPAC 1st Team Selection, juniors Raquel Sutera (2nd Team) and Cassidy Gebhart (Honorable Mention) and sophomore Logan Wagner (Honorable Mention) were all honored for the performances last season. The addition of five newcomers (four freshman and one junior transfer) will add depth and talent to the squad.
