Thanks to Super Storm Sandy the St. Cloud State women’s hockey team members were beneficiaries of an extended stay in Providence, R.I.
The Huskies played Providence College in a non-conference series and were scheduled to leave Oct. 29.
As the team loaded the bus for Boston’s Logan Airport, they learned it had been closed and all flights cancelled.
The teams spent the next two nights at the hotel riding out what head coach Jeff Giesen described as “a never ending thunderstorm.” The team passed the time playing cards, studying and even trying their skills as amateur weather reporters and posting the videos to YouTube.
The team returned to St. Cloud to a media frenzy in time to prepare for its home opener against The Ohio State University.
