Women's Hockey

Wisconsin moved to 10-0-0 for only second time in program history after a win against Bemidji State.

Tremendous through ten: Wisconsin moves to 10-0 after Bemidji State victory

In its only home series of the month, the Wisconsin Badgers continued its winning ways. The women’s hockey team extended its winning streak, and it is now 10-0-0 after a convincing 5-1 victory against the Bemidji State Beavers (1-6-1). It is the second time in team history that the Badgers have started off with ten straight wins, with the 2015-16’ team being the last to do it. Bemidji State’s record is slightly misleading.

No. 2 Badgers look to sophomores to keep home streak alive

Following a home sweep of Lindenwood last weekend, the No. 2 University of Wisconsin’s Women’s Hockey team (2-0-0) will look to continue a dominant home stand this weekend against Mercyhurst University (0-0-0). The Badgers defeated Lindenwood 3-1 on Friday and 4-0 on Saturday behind a goal and assist per game from sophomore forward Presley Norby.

Transfers help power Badgers to sweep of Lindenwood

The second-ranked Badgers (2-0) eased by Lindenwood (0-2) 4-0 Saturday behind strong performances from two players with equally improbable, yet diametrically different, paths to Madison. On a team full of freshmen, it was perhaps no surprise that forward Claudia Kepler scored her first goal as a Badger.


Wisconsin looks to open season on positive note against Lindenwood

Following an 8-0 rout of the South Korean National Team last Saturday in its lone exhibition game, the No. 2 University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team hosts Lindenwood University this weekend in a two-game series to open its regular season.. This will be the seventh straight season in which the Badgers face the Lady Lions, UW holds the all-time series lead 11-0. In its last exhibition contest, Wisconsin dominated from start to finish, outshooting South Korea 60-5.

Wisconsin celebrates its win over Boston College in the national semi-final, which sent them to the national title, a contest which they dropped to Clarkson. 

Despite postseason losses, Wisconsin seniors left lasting legacy

With 125 wins, two WCHA regular season championships, three conference tournament titles and four straight Frozen Four appearances, Wisconsin's senior class has had a career that most collegiate players can only dream of. Yet for as much as they've won, those six players—Sarah Nurse, Sydney McKibbon, Mikayla Johnson, Mellissa Channell, Jenny Ryan and Ann-Renée Desbiens—have always been defined as much by their failures as by their successes. While they won the WCHA, they couldn't beat Minnesota in Minneapolis.

Back-to-back-to-back-to-back: Wisconsin Badgers advance to fourth-straight Frozen Four

Playing in its first-ever NCAA tournament game, Robert Morris took the ice against No. 1 Wisconsin and for the first 13 minutes managed to play toe-to-toe with the top-ranked team in the country. Then junior forward Annie Pankowski forced a turnover, senior forward Sarah Nurse scored, and the Badgers (22-2-4 WCHA, 32-2-4 overall) proceeded to dominate the next 27 minutes of play en route to a 7-0 win over the Colonials (15-3-2 CHA, 24-5-6 overall) in the quarterfinal game.
