The two-time defending National Champion Wisconsin Women's Hockey team has opened their season, picking up right where they left off.
They began the season ranked as the pre-season #1 for the third straight year. They received all 19 first place votes.
I absolutely didn't realize that they had started yet, so I'm way behind the times on getting the kickoff information to you.
Senior Emily Morris recorded a goal and three assists as the No. 1 Wisconsin women’s hockey team extended its unbeaten streak to 28 games with an 11-0 victory over Union College Saturday night at Messa Rink.
The Badgers return to Madison to play host to Robert Morris Oct. 5-6 at the Kohl Center. Faceoff for both games is set for 7:07 p.m. Prior to Friday’s game, fans are invited to join the Badgers as they unveil their 2007 NCAA championship banner.
Saturday’s game will be the final portion of Wisconsin Hockey Night at the Rink, which also includes the first official men’s hockey practice of the season. Following practice, attendees can interact with the team during a casual, buffet-style dinner in the Nicholas Johnson Pavilion. At 6 p.m., Brian Posick, the “Voice of Badger Hockey”, will emcee a hockey season preview program featuring women’s head coach Mark Johnson, and men’s head coach Mike Eaves.
Also, Sara Bauer, who finished her career with UW last season, has been named one of 30 semifinalists for the NCAA Woman of the Year Award. Good luck Sara!
