Every year the University of Minnesota host the Roy Griak Invitational at the Les Bolstad Golf Course in Falcon Heights, Minn. This year I shot the DIII races for the College of St. Scholastica. This year’s event was on the morning of September 29, 2012.

Last night I had the privilege of shooting Div. I women’s hockey for USCHO.com. I was lucky enough to capture images from the historic University of North Dakota win over the University of Minnesota — the first in the program’s history — and be one of only two still photographers at the game.

I would like to thank Ryan Coleman for the assignment and letting me use his lens, Melissa Wade for the use of my photo (below) on USCHO.com and Gopher women’s hockey SID Michelle Traen for the assistance with my questions and stats and for approving the access.

Slavin, playing her first game of the season, scored the game-winning goal 32 seconds into the third period, breaking a 3-3 tie. The win is the first for North Dakota over the University of Minnesota in 29 chances after the UND program began in 2002. (Photo by Caleb Williams/d3photography.com)
