Badger Hockey sweeps UW Athletes of the Year Awards


Congratulations to defenseman Jamie McBain and goaltender Jessie Vetter on being named UW Athletes of the Year! This is the first time that hockey players have captured both the male and female awards in the same year. McBain is the 3rd Badger Men's Hockey player to win the award (previously won by goaltender Marc Behrend in '83 and forward Gary Shuchuk in '90), and Vetter is the 2nd Badger Women's Hockey player to win the award (previously won by Sara Bauer in '06 and 'o7).
