Letter: Women's hockey history should stay in place
I took family who were in for the Frozen Four tournament up to Grand Forks to tour the Ralph Engelstad Arena, and during the tour we asked where the pictures of the previous women's hockey teams and players, and especially the gold medal-winning UND alumni like the Lamoureux sisters, could be found in the arena. We were told by the tour guide that everything related to women's hockey had been removed from the arena and the tour guide was not sure where it was.
Are we not proud of the accomplishments of these very talented athletes? As an alumna of the university, this was really upsetting to me, and the rumble in the crowd on the tour implied that I was not the only one with this feeling. The tour guide told us that we were not the first to ask this question, and I would suspect that each time it is asked the feelings are the same in the crowd.
I also wonder how many people know that all pictures and memorabilia from the women's hockey team has been removed.
I'm not sure who is making these decisions but whoever it is, shame on you.
