College Hockey:
Bemidji State Set to Make Its Case For WCHA Admission

Bemidji State makes its pitch to the WCHA on Monday, and it’s bringing along a large group.

According to a story in the Bemidji Pioneer, the school is sending eight people to Marco Island, Fla., for an hourlong presentation.

They are:

• Jon Quistgaard, school president;

• Bill Maki, vice president for finance and administration;

• Rob Bollinger, executive director of the BSU Foundation;

• R.H. “Bob” Peters, former coach and CHA commissioner;

• Doug Leif, business professor and faculty representative;

• Tom Serratore, coach;

• Rick Goeb, athletic director;

• Steve Parker, senior project manger for Leo A Daly, designer of the under-construction Bemidji Regional Event Center.

The WCHA is not bound to vote on the Beavers’ application for admission at Monday’s meeting. If league members do vote, eight of the 10 schools would have to vote in favor for Bemidji State to be admitted.

The league has scheduled a media teleconference with commissioner Bruce McLeod for Tuesday.
