Roddar's Career Statistics
Off the Field with Julia Roddar
Why did you choose the University of Wisconsin?: It seems to me that it is a good school, team and coaches.
What does it mean to be a Badger?: My family have friends that lives in Green Bay and Chilton, Wis. The whole family has been students at UW, and all of them have enjoyed it and really pushed me to choose to be a Badger. My dad is friends with Pete Johnson (Badger Bob's son), the hockey coach. So for me it is a lot of history and I am the only one in my family that got the opportunity to be a Badger, and I am very proud of that!
