Albany Native Leads Plattsburgh to Third Straight Title (AUDIO)
Plattsburgh State women's ice hockey just captured its third consecutive national championship, thanks in part to the play of Albany native Melissa Sheeran.
Sheeran, the sophomore Schaghticoke native, led the Cardinals this scoring this season with 55 points. This came one season after scoring the game-winner in the national championship game as a freshman.
Sheeran joined us today to talk about the experience of winning her second straight title. She also talked about how she was able to have such a successful season individually.
Furthermore, with all the controversy surrounding the UConn women's basketball team's dominance, I asked Sheeran her take on her own teams dominance.
We also talked about the increased competition at the Division III level, how she ended up at Plattsburgh and if it was a hard decision to leave the Capital Region behind as a ninth-grader to attend the Millbrook School.
I also asked her what she looks forward to most about coming back home in the offseasons.
