Athlete Preview: Jocelyne And Monique Lamoureux

Well we missed a day in our athlete profiles, which is why we’re going to double it up and pick a pair of teenagers on the US Women’s Ice Hockey team, the Lamoureux Twins.

Jocelyne and Monique Lamoureux grew up in a hockey obsessed house. Their father played at the University of North Dakota, and then professionally. Their older brother JP  played at UND as well, and their brother Mario is yet another Sioux. But when it came time for the Twins to pick their college, they went to the University of Minnesota.

In their Freshman seasons, both twins made a mark in the WCHA. Jocelyne was first team all conference, and ranked 11th nationally in points per game with 1.62. She was 2nd on the team in points, goals and assists, and 3rd in the conference in all those categories. It doesn’t get much better unless…..

Your name is Monique. Monique was a 2nd team All-American, top 10 finalist for the Kazmaier award (National POY), and the WCHA scoring champion with 61 points in conference play. Monique had 39 goals, and 75 points in just 40 team games. She was 4th in the country in goals per game.

After their Freshman year the Grand Forks, ND natives transferred home to play at the University of North Dakota. They will have to sit out a year per NCAA rules, but that’s just OK with them, as they have some business to attend to. Like winning a gold medal.
