After a slow start, the Bemidji State women’s hockey team has found its stride.

And a couple Alaskans have helped make it possible.

Senior forward Bailey Wright of Anchorage and freshman forward Clair DeGeorge each delivered their first three-game points streaks to lead the bounce back.

Bemidji State has busted off a recent 3-2-1 stretch since snapping a seven-game losing streak and stand 5-9-1 overall this season.

Wright earned assists in three straight games for the first time in her four-year career, stretching 100 games.

This season has been an offensive explosion for Wright, who in September scored her first goal in a full calendar year against Syracuse.

She has compiled 7-13-20 career totals, which includes three goals and two assists in 30 games as a freshman at Minnesota Duluth.

Meanwhile, DeGeorge looks like she’ll be an offensive force for many years to come.

The rookie has made an immediate impact for Bemidji State, as she leads the team with eight assists and is tied for the team lead with 11 points.

She too enjoyed her first three-game points streak with a goal and three helpers. Her goal over the weekend against Ohio State was her third on the season.

DeGeorge leads the team with .73 points per game and has tallied 3-8-11 totals in 15 games.
