2000-2001 season:  At the end of regular season play, WHAC finished in the top four teams in the WHAM C2 division, earning themselves a berth in the post                                         season tournament.  At this tournament WHAC finished 3-1, good enough for first place in the C2 division.

2001-2002 season:  After a strong finish in the 2000-2001 season WHAC decided to play in the more competitive C1 division.

WHAC originated in 1996 when a woman player on the men's team decided it was time for a women's team to be started.

During the 1996-1997 season WHAC posted a 0-13 record, with the closest losses coming against archrivals St. Thomas/St. Catherine, and cross-town rival St. Olaf. Captains Deb Cussen '98 and Kate Trafton '99 led scoring with 4 and 3 goals, respectively, and goalies Melanie Dorson '98 and Hannah Koenker '00 gained experience, finishing with a .662% and .702% save average, respectively. As the team is overflowing with young talent, WHAC is poised to be very competitive in the seasons to follow.
