Lamoureux twins headed for North Dakota
GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- Twins Jocelyne and Monique Lamoureux are making plans to play for the University of North Dakota after dominant freshman women's hockey seasons in Minnesota.
The twins were granted a release from their scholarships at Minnesota on Tuesday. Jocelyn signed a letter of intent Wednesday to attend UND. Monique is expected to sign hers early next week.
The twins, who are Grand Forks natives, ranked third and fourth nationally in scoring as rookies.
Monique said Coach Brian Idalski has turned the UND program around and she and her sister hope to be part of it.
The twins are candidates for the 2010 U.S. Olympic team. If they make the Olympic team, they likely will take online classes full-time so they will be eligible to play for the Sioux in 2010-11.
