Hey Badger Fans!
Katy Harding here again as the Badgers are off to a great start coming off a weekend sweep against the Lindenwood Lady Lions!
The first goal of the 2014-2015 season came from senior forward Karley Sylvester in her first shift of the game! Goaltender Megan Miller also played her first game as a Badger in Lindenwood, while junior goaltender Jorie Walters earned her first shutout as a Badger during the second game.
Junior defenseman Courtney Burke was able to tell me her thoughts about the series and her thoughts on what she is expecting from the team in Duluth next weekend.
"I think we played really well as a team this weekend even though we were missing a big chunk of our team. Everyone stepped up to the plate, and I'm excited to get back with the whole team on Monday and prepare for Duluth."
Burke also had nothing but nice things to say about Baylee Wellhausen's performance.
"She started the weekend off strong with her vocal performance Friday afternoon before the game," Burke said. "On the ice she was playing very fast and strong. I think she will keep improving over the course of the season and end up being a big asset for our team."
It was a great weekend for all on the team and we are looking forward to this weeks practices and begin preparing for our next series against Minnesota Duluth!
I would also like to thank Sarah Nurse for letting me take over this blog for the week and write to all of you amazing fans! She'll be back this week and will tell us how her trip to Hockey Canada's Fall Festival went!
