Q&A MHJ // Boston is a long way from Minnesota. What made you interested in going to B.C.? Grace Bizal // Honestly, everything about it. When I first came here over the summer, I fell in love with the school. The school, academically, is amazing. The coaches are awesome and the girls on the team are so nice and so welcoming. I just loved it and wanted to be away from home for my four years of college. MHJ // Had you previously been on the East Coast a lot or visited Boston? GB // I'd been out here once before with my family. We vis- ited Boston on a family trip. I've stayed in the Midwest and hadn't gone out East too much, but every time I've been out here I absolutely loved it. MHJ // In preseason polls, Minnesota and B.C. were No. 1 and No. 2, respectively. They aren't on your schedule, but what do you think about the possibility of meeting in the postseason? GB // Playing against the WCHA is always good competi- tion. We played Minnesota-Duluth during the opening weekend and they were a great team. Hopefully we'll see Minnesota down the road. MHJ // You probably know a lot of the girls on the Gophers. GB // Yeah, I do. I've played with and grew up with a lot of the girls on the team. They are awe- some girls and good players. A lot of them are my close friends, so it's really cool to see them there. I'm so happy for them.
