Head Coach Mark Cook Quote
“We knew we had a quality team and we had to overcome some of those demons in front of the goal, so to speak and we always said the nonconference schedule prepares us for the Summit League and we learn lessons from those (early) loses.”
After beginning conference play 1-1-2, the Bison won three of their last four games to place fourth in the Summit League and qualified for the League tournament for the sixth consecutive year.
Three-year starting goalkeeper Sierra Bonham was named the 2014 Summit League Goalkeeper of the Year after leading the league with an 82.7 percent save percentage and was second with .94 goals against per game. She also received her third All-Summit League selection and her first first-team honors.
The Future Is Now
The 2013 Summit League Freshman of the Year continued her climb as one of the most elite goal scorers in the conference by scoring 9 goals and tallying 19 points in 2014. Lauren Miller was voted to her second consecutive All-Summit League first team in her second season as a Bison.
Chew on This
The Bison have qualified for six consecutive Summit League tournaments, which is the longest active streak in the conference. Only the top four teams in the conference qualify for the four-team playoff. The Bison won their only conference title in 2010 and lost to Texas A&M in the first round of the NCAA tournament in penalty kicks.
