Former Badger women's soccer player Genevieve Richard has traveled the world, but says she has experienced success in large part because of her time at UW.

The shot saved round the world: Richard thrives abroad thanks to UW experiences

LONDON — Geneviève Richard has just exited the water on a beach in France, and the wind is gusting audibly over the phone. She’s slightly out of breath, but happy, even though her team, Olympique de Marseille Féminin, lost its match just a day before. Even with her club toiling in last place of France’s top female soccer division, Richard has plenty to smile about these days: A professional career seemed out of reach not long ago. “I was doing all of my prerequisites for [a] pharmacy [degree], and I didn’t think about [soccer],” she said. But while Richard, a Quebec native, expected to depart Wisconsin with a degree, she may not have expected it would lead to and prepare her for a professional soccer career.

Wisconsin looks to extend its Big Ten Tournament run with a win over Maryland this Sunday. 

Wisconsin looks to extend Big Ten Tournament run in matchup against Maryland

In one of their last practices before the Wisconsin Badgers men’s soccer team (4-3-1 Big Ten, 8-4-4 overall) travels to College Park to take on the Maryland Terrapins (5-1-2, 10-4-3) in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament, it seemed fitting that it was cold and pouring rain. Last time the Terps and Badgers faced off, the Terps won a sloppy 5-4 thriller in Madison to give the Badgers their only home loss of the season.

Wisconsin falls in high scoring contest to Duke

The Wisconsin Badgers men’s soccer team (1-1 Big Ten, 3-2-2 overall) couldn’t quite beat the Duke Blue Devils (1-1 ACC, 5-1-1) in a roller coaster of a game that featured seven goals and two red cards that finished 4-3. The Badgers had great success in the early stages, and made good use of their early possession to get the first two goals.

The Badgers struck first in the fourth minute.
