Outstanding Service Award
Project Award
2003-2004


Sharyl Beaudin, Matt Beckman, Lynne Erickson, Paula LeBlanc, Rick Menz and Bob Nygaard
Department of Intercollegiate Athletics


The NCAA Women's Frozen Four Ice Hockey tournament hosted by UMD in Spring 2003, was the first NCAA Championship event in Duluth since 1982. The nominees worked tirelessly for over a year, forming and heading committees of hundreds of volunteers they recruited to put on an event that was acknowledged by the NCAA as being world class. All their efforts were driven by their dedication to the department, and to the student athletes, the event, and the university.

The event set a record attendance of almost 10,000 for Women's College Hockey and showcased UMD to the entire nation. As a matter of fact, it was so well run that the NCAA asked us to consider hosting it again i n 2005, stating that UMD had set the bar for a National College Women's Hockey.

I am proud to present Sharyl, Matt, Lynn, Paula, Rick and Bob with this Project Award.
