Better late than never w/ this news, but the Mark Johnson coached United States Women's team have successfully defended their World Championship crown beating Canada 4-1 for the championship. W/ their continued success in the tourney, Team USA takes over the World's #1 ranking as well.

Meghan Duggan had a goal in the victory and Jessie Vetter made 39 saves to backstop another successful venture for Team USA.

Congrats to Mark Johnson and all the former and current Badgers (pictured) for another job well done and for representing the Red, White & Blue proudly!

60 might have more on this when she returns from hypernation. Personally, I'm looking forward to watching Women's hockey during the Olympics next Winter. I'm also pretty excited for the Team USA/Wisconsin warm up game in January 2010 at the Kohl Center. As much as I love Spring and Summer, I won't be unhappy when Hockey Season starts up again for the Badger Men and Women.
