Badgers Celebrate National Champions

Wisconsin Athletics hosted an NCAA champion fan event on Monday at the Kohl Center honoring the Badger women’s hockey team as well as members of the track and swimming teams.

The women's hockey team won its fifth NCAA title on Sunday thanks to a 2-0 win over rival Minnesota in Hamden, Connecticut. Goaltender Kristen Campbell was named the Frozen Four Most Outstanding Performer after not allowing a goal during the NCAA tournament. Annie Pankowski scored three goals during the Frozen Four while fellow co-captain Sophia Shaver scored the game-winning goal in Sunday's championship game.

In addition, UW honored three individual NCAA champions on Monday night: Beata Nelson, who won three individual NCAA titles this past weekend and was named the NCAA Swimmer of the Championships, Morgan McDonald, who won the 3000 and 5000 meters earlier this month at the 2019 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships, and Alicia Monson, the women's indoor track 5000 meters champion.
