Four years later, Christine Bestland still looks on in awe as Meghan Agosta-Marciano works her magic.
The former Mercyhurst University hockey star’s knack for making everything on and off the ice appear easy never gets old for Bestland, her former Lakers teammate.
That’s because Bestland, now the Lakers’ senior captain who has played alongside Agosta at Canadian National Team camps, has witnessed the secret to the three-time Olympian and two-time gold-medal winner’s success. “She has talent that came easy to her,” Bestland said. “But you know behind the scenes she’s working hard.”

straight Olympic gold medal in Sochi, Russia, always has been arguably the most gifted athlete in the sport every step of the way – a phenom, as Lakers head coach Michael Sisti said. She was “a better skater than most of the other players, if not all the other players,” he said. “What separates her from almost any female player in the world is her first three strides. She obviously has great skills, great hands, a good mind for the game. But I think those three steps enable her to get to pucks and possess the puck so much more than everyone else.”
Then add in the skill, work ethic and desire to take her game to the highest level, which has Agosta on the path to being the most decorated player in women’s hockey history.

“That was her goal – to be regarded as one of the best,” Sisti said of Agosta-Marciano, who holds several NCAA career records, including the most goals (157) and points (300). She’s the only player in the NCAA era to top the 300-point mark. She also has a most valuable player award in the Olympics, earned at the 2010 Games in Vancouver after scoring a record nine goals in the tournament. Agosta, a native of Leamington, Ontario, has earned 13 medals – eight of them gold – in international events – over the past decade.
Agosta turns 27 on Wednesday, the day Canada meets the rival United States in a key preliminary-round game in Sochi, Russia. So Sisti figures she could play in another two or three Olympics in the future. “That would be just amazing to see,” he said. “It’s been great for us just watching her grow, mature and get better every year.”
Bestland, 21, a native of Brunkild, Manitoba, played alongside Agosta at a national team camp in Calgary this past summer. “She’s improved even more,” Bestland said.
Perhaps the best is yet to come from Agosta. “With everything she’s accomplished,” Sisti said, “she certainly has earned the right to be considered one of (the best) players.”

Mercyhurst women’s hockey coach Michael Sisti has signed three players – defenseman Callie Paddock and forwards Brooke Hartwick and Kirsten Miller – to national letters of intent.

ITHACA, N.Y. – Mercyhurst women’s hockey coach Michael Sisti spent only a few moments in the dressing room before overtime.
He knew his Lakers played well for the first 60 minutes against Cornell, the nation’s second-ranked team. He simply reminded them of that.
“I wanted them to play fearless and confident and let it all hang out,” Sisti said. “I don’t know what they said after I left.”
The team’s message was simple – stay focused and positive. “We knew why we were working hard,” said freshman forward Jenna Dingeldein, who scored her 15th goal of the season 4 minutes, 49 seconds into the extra period Saturday at Lynah Rink to seal a 4-3 win in the NCAA Division I quarterfinals and earn a spot in next weekend’s Frozen Four at the University of Minnesota’s Ridder Arena in Minneapolis.
Mercyhurst (29-6-1) will face third-seeded Boston University (27-5-3), a 5-3 quarterfinal winner against Clarkson Saturday, in Friday’s semifinals at either 6 or 9 p.m. The Lakers, which avenged a 4-0 loss to Cornell Jan. 29 in Ithaca, will play in the national semifinals for the third time in the program’s history and for the first time since losing 3-2 in overtime to Cornell at Ridder Arena in 2010.

The Mercyhurst University women’s hockey team are College Hockey America tournament champions again.
The Lakers exploded for four goals in the third period of a 4-1 title-game win against Syracuse in front of 1,127 fans Saturday at Mercyhurst Ice Center. But will the program’s 10th conference championship in the past 11 years serve as the last positive moment of the Lakers’ season?
Mercyhurst (28-6-1) learns its NCAA Division I Tournament fate today at 6 p.m. during a webcast on NCAA.com. Lakers coach Michael Sisti said “it would be a crime if we are left out. I think 100 percent we should be in the tournament, and we shouldn’t be the eighth seed either.”
The Lakers hope for one of five at-large spots into the eight-team field, since CHA won’t earn an automatic bid until the 2014-15 season. The other three spots belong to the champions of ECAC Hockey, Hockey East Association and Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
“Anything can happen,” said senior goaltender Stephanie Ciampa, who earned tournament MVP honors after stopping 45-of-47 shots in the top-seeded Lakers’ two wins, including 19-of-20 against the second-seeded Orange (20-15-1). “I think we’re in good enough shape.”
