Hey Badger Fans!
It was another successful weekend for the team, as we swept the Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs for the first time in quite a while for a number of the upperclassmen on our team. It was a great feeling, and the team overcame a lot of adversity over the weekend. The games consisted of a number of power play opportunities for both sides as it was a physical series, but the team executed special teams well and play a consistent 60 minutes both nights to walk away on the weekend with six out of six points. It was a big weekend for the team, and puts us in a great position heading into an off weekend.
Although we do not have games this upcoming weekend, the team is taking no time off, but rather using the extra time to hit it a little harder in order to prepare ourselves as best as possible for the final six regular season games. The team has an off weekend and then we will head to Columbus, Ohio, to take on the Buckeyes, before returning home to play in our final regular season home series against the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
The team is ready for a weekend off and is excited to use the extra time to push a little harder and spend some extra time on skills and other areas of the game that we can fine tune while we have a few days to spend. An exciting moment for everyone came with the announcement of no classes! We were given a "college snow day" because of the cold weather, which isn't something that happens very often, so the team will get to enjoy a morning free of classes. The team will practice throughout the week, before having a few days off on the weekend to rest up and recover. The team is looking forward to what will come after the break, and is ready to go to work this week to get the most out of our extra efforts as possible.
Check back later in the week to hear all about the training sessions and what the Badgers have been up to in the cold weather! Until next time, thanks for reading and On Wisconsin!
