Deluce, Prévost win championship at Prospects Super Series

I'm a little late on this, as the Prospects Super Series took place June 5-7, but honestly until today I had no idea what this event was, and it wasn't posted on the uscho fan forum until a few days ago. (Thanks to those who posted on the uscho thread.)

The Prospects site isn't the most the straightfoward site for those who aren't familiar with the Prospects events, but from what I can tell there were two tournaments -- the Showcase Camp and the Super Series -- with the former being younger players and the latter being older players from DI, DIII, CIS, CWHL, etc. If I can count (and sometimes I can't), 9 teams competed in the Super Series.

Badgers Mallory Deluce and Carolyne Prévost played for the Summer Storm. The Prospects site doesn't have scores for the round-robin play (schedule only as far as I can tell), but the Summer Storm defeated Total1 6-0 in the quarterfinals, defeated the Blue Streak 12-0 in the semifinals, and defeated the Slashers 3-2 in the championship game.

Here are the rosters for the 2 teams in the championship game. As you can see, the Summer Storm was almost entirely comprised of DI players, whereas the Slashers was comprised of more players from DIII and other leagues.
