College Hockey:
2004 Women’s FF Still Looking for Venue

— The 2004 Women’s Frozen Four could be played in Providence, R.I.

The tournament had been scheduled for the New Haven Coliseum, but the coliseum closed on Aug. 31 because of economic problems.

The New Haven Register reported this week that Yale and the ECAC, the Frozen Four hosts, have recommended the tournament be played at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence.

The newspaper said the NCAA women’s ice hockey committee would consider the recommendation this week. If approved, it would be sent to the NCAA championship cabinet.

Wayne Dean, a senior associate athletic director at Yale, told the Journal that arenas in Hartford and Bridgeport, both in Connecticut, showed “mild” interest in hosting the tournament.
