I should have done this a long time ago, but better late than never, right? On April 12, Team USA defeated Team Canada 4-3 to win the 2008 IIHF World Women's Championship. Badgers Meghan Duggan, Hilary Knight, Erika Lawler, Jessie Vetter, Molly Engstrom, and Kerry Weiland took home the Gold. Badgers Meaghan Mikkelson and Carla MacLeod took home the Silver. Congratulations, ladies!
