Nick Pryor Wrap Up

For those of you that have been following for the past couple of weeks, 2009 Wisconsin recruit Nick Pryor has been checking in with us from Russia while he and Team USA compete in the U-18 World Championships. Team USA won the Bronze Medal beating Sweden in the Third Place game. This will be Nicks last post from Russia.

Well, we ended up with a bronze medal by beating Sweden 6-3, and got our payback on them from earlier in the tournament when they came from behind to beat us. It was a pretty good experience to win a medal, obviously it wasn't a gold medal but it was going to leave this place with a medal after everything that we went through since we have been here. For the guys that have spent 2 years together in Ann Arbor, it was a pretty emotional day yesterday and that is one day that none of us will ever forget. Now we got one day of sight seeing and touring the city before we head back for the states tomorrow morning, very very early. That two o'clock wake up is going to come fast. Thanks for reading all of this and I hope I helped you out as much as I could. GO USA
