The three seniors on the UND men’s team all received their degrees on Saturday afternoon.
Ben Blood and Mario Lamoureux both finished off their undergraduate degrees. Brad Eidsness earned his master’s in business administration (he earned his undergrad last year).
Pierre-Paul Lamoureux, who has helped out with the team the last two years, also earned his degree.
On the women’s side, two juniors earned their degrees. Jocelyne Lamoureux earned her undergraduate degree, as did goaltender Jorid Dagfinrud. Both players will be back next season for their senior years.
Academics aren’t analyzed too closely by fans, but it’s a huge day for the athletes, who have completed a major step in setting themselves up for life after hockey.
