Sophomore forward Christina Mancuso played in every game as a freshman and has continued the streak into this season. The Toronto native has built her reputation as a hard-working grinder on the ice, but has a more gentle side away from the rink, majoring in middle childhood education. Or maybe she’ll use her toughness to keep her students in line.

I am … Canadian!

I have … a sunshiny personality.

I will … beat Bob in basketball one day.

I owe my family everything!
