Talent

There was no shortage of talent on the Dinos' lineup this year. They were anchored by Canadian national team goalie Taryn Swiatek, who was a Canada West First-Team All-Star. The Dinos boasted several other standouts, including the elusive defenseman Renae Hunter and the marvelous midfielder Jessica Horning, both of whom also received CW recognition.

Effort

The Dinos displayed excellent effort with continuous improvement all season. Unfortunately they climaxed a few games too soon.

Talent

Despite losing 12 veteran players from last year's roster, those that remained stepped up and the rookies pulled their own weight. Adam (A-Mac) MacDonald moved from the front lines to support the team at the back and got himself named a Canada West First-Team All-Star. Carlos (Hot Karl) Cruz was named to the Second-Team and pulled in a solid number of goals.

Effort

You can never leave one of their games early; they can pull off miracles in the final minutes.
