Women’s Hockey: Badgers reclaim No. 1 national ranking after Country Classic victory

After three weeks sitting at the No. 2 spot in the national rankings, the University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team (16-1-1, 8-1-1 WCHA) is back on top of the collegiate women’s hockey world.

The team’s return to prominence follows their victory at the Country Classic at the Ford Ice Center in Nashville, Tennessee. The Badgers faced off against Harvard (5-4-0, 5-0-0 ECAC) Friday and No. 8 Boston College (11-4-2, 10-3-1 WHEA) on Saturday, winning the games 5-1 and 5-3.

In their bout Friday, the Badgers outshot the Crimson 57–15, with two goals coming off of senior Presley Norby’s stick along with Daryl Watts, Brette Pettet and Alexis Mauermann all finding the back of the net.
