With a 5-0 win over No. 3 Mercyhurst in the national championship game last Sunday, the University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team captured its third national title in four years. During that four-year stretch, which also included 2007-08’s second place finish, the Badgers have been a model of consistency. Led by head coach Mark Johnson, whose service to Badger hockey is arguably unprecedented, Wisconsin has proved itself peerless.After a successful regular season that saw the Badgers dropped no lower than No. 2 in the nation, Wisconsin silenced all doubters in postseason play as they went 4-0 against top-five opponents Minnesota, Minnesota-Duluth and Mercyhurst down the stretch to win the national title in Boston.The Badgers finished the season 33-2-5, and on the heels of a crucial 12 game unbeaten streak. After winning the WCHA playoffs in Minneapolis on March 8th, Wisconsin came to Boston riding a wave of confidence. After dismantling Dartmouth 7-0 in the first round, the Badgers had a date with archrivals Minnesota-Duluth for the sixth time this year in the semifinals.After a grueling 3-1 win over the Bulldogs, Wisconsin was expecting a border-battle showdown with their other archrival from the “Land of Ten Thousand Lakes” — the Gophers. However, No. 3 Mercyhurst had other plans as they shocked Minnesota to earn a spot in the national championship against Johnson and the Badgers. However, the Cinderella slipper didn’t quite fit for hometown Mercyhurst as goaltender Jessie Vetter’s 37 saves and goals from five different Badgers guided Wisconsin to a 5-0 win over the hometown team, and a fitting culmination to a great season.Using a calculated offensive attack, with scoring potential on each line, the Badgers used their incredible depth to wear down opponents, and in the rare case a game came down to the wire, Wisconsin fans could rest assured that Vetter, the national player of the year, would help the Badgers emerge victorious.2009-10 will present a unique challenge to the women’s hockey team, as they will be without their head coach, Johnson, their backbone Vetter, and their emotional leader, senior forward Erika Lawler. Also departing are versatile forward Angie Keseley, power-play whiz Alycia Matthews and role players Kayla Hagen and Rachel Bible.Johnson will head to Blaine, MN, to prepare for his upcoming stint as the head coach for Team USA for the 2010 Olympics. Vetter and Lawler will likely follow Johnson to Minnesota, as both have had storied international careers and are considered locks to don the red, white and blue next winter in Vancouver.An encore to this year’s success will undoubtedly be a challenge for Wisconsin, but despite the colossal losses of Johnson, Vetter and Lawler, the Badgers bring back a nucleus that is flush with ability and experience.Leading the way will be forwards Hilary Knight, Meghan Duggan and Brooke Ammerman. Duggan, a highly skilled and passionate junior will likely fill the leadership void left by Lawler while Knight and Ammerman simply need to continue the steady offensive production they exhibited this year. Badger enthusiasts can expect an ample offensive spillover with these three gunners.Add in the solid two-way play of returners Jasmine Giles, Mallory DeLuce and Kyla Sanders and the top-two lines appear ready for another productive season. Sophomore Kelly Nash is another player to watch, as her skill-set and playmaking ability appear a good fit to replace Lawler as a puck-distributing pivot.Wisconsin’s defensive core returns a talented top pairing of freshman Brittany Haverstock, a swift Canadian, and junior Malee Windmeier, whose unwavering play not only helped barricade Vetter, but also earned the Minnesota native a spot on the NCAA-All-Tournament Team. Also returning are veteran sophomores Olivia Jakiel and Anne Dronen.Vetter’s departure marks a new era in Wisconsin women’s hockey, and brings about an aura of uncertainty between the pipes that Badger fans haven’t experienced since Vetter’s strong play during their march to the national championship her freshman year. Junior stopper Alannah McCready and freshman Nikki Kaasa will be in the spotlight from the get-go as hockey fans watch to see if Vetter’s departure spells doom for Wisconsin’s hopes of a second straight national championship.Wisconsin’s returning players will be aided by one of the nation’s top recruiting classes. The 2010 Wisconsin women’s hockey recruiting class is headlined by goaltender Becca Reugsegger who should challenge McCready and Kaasa for the starting goaltender position.With all the changes the Badger’s are to endure, the 2010 team will surely have a new identity, and with their recent championship only intensifying the pressure to succeed, expectations will be curtailed to a certain extent, but a serious regression is highly unlikely. Many will expect the losses of Johnson, Lawler and Vetter to cripple the Badgers, but even with those losses, the Badgers will have, at the very least, a senior class with the invaluable experience of playing in four national championships.

The USC women’s basketball team started its season with a 93-66 home win in an exhibition game against Biola University Tuesday night.“We still got a long way to go, but this was a pretty good first step we took,” USC coach Michael Cooper said.Senior center Kari LaPlante led the Women of Troy with 20 points. Overall, five USC players scored in double digits — freshman forward Cassie Harberts (14), freshman guard Len’Nique Brown (11), sophomore forward Christina Marinacci (17) and redshirt junior Jacki Gemelos (12).LaPlante made back-to-back baskets and junior guard Ashley Corral hit a three-pointer to put the Eagles, members of the Golden State Athletic Conference in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, in a 20-9 hole within the game’s first seven minutes. Biola fought back to tie the game at 24 before the Women of Troy pulled away once again, this time for good.“We just needed to buckle down and focus,” LaPlante, who had seven rebounds and four steals to go along with her 20 points, said. “We took their first punch and ran with it.”Corral buried another three-pointer with 6:25 left in the half to extend the lead to 30-26. Right before the halftime buzzer, the Women of Troy worked a textbook pick-and-roll as Brown found LaPlante rolling off the pick and fed her down the lane for a layup to make the score 44-33.The Eagles never cut the lead below double digits for the rest of the game.“We have to be a defensive-minded team,” Cooper said. “When we played defense like we did the first few minutes of the game, we were up 20-9. Then all of a sudden we just got away from that and started going strictly on our offense. We just can’t afford to do that.”The Trojans’ defense forced the Eagles into committing 25 turnovers, and seven different players had steals for the team. The Women of Troy capitalized on those mistakes, turning those Eagles turnovers into 27 USC points.Another strength for the Women of Troy was their domination of the paint throughout the game. They outscored the Eagles 46-20 in the paint and outrebounded them, 41-26.“We’ve been working a lot with rebounding because that’s something we’ve had trouble with in the past,” LaPlante said.LaPlante’s seven rebounds led the team, but all five starters were productive on the boards as each recorded at least four rebounds.Corral picked up where she left off last season, leading the Women of Troy with nine assists. Gemelos dished a few passes off herself, finishing with four assists.The Women of Troy face off against No. 22 Gonzaga on Friday at the Galen Center to mark the official beginning of the regular season. Cooper thinks his team is up to the challenge, as long as it focuses on one particular aspect of its game.“We have to play tough defense for 40 minutes. … When we do that, we’re a pretty good team,” Cooper said.
