Meet Your 2009-10 Wisconsin Badgers

Uwbadgers.com has released the Badger Women's roster and bios for the upcoming season.

A couple of jersey changes this year:
  • Maria Evans will be wearing #3 (formerly #14)
  • Olivia Jakiel will be wearing # 13 (formerly #3)
  • Carla Pentimone will be wearing #14 (formerly #18)
Looks like Pentimone, who transferred from Sacred Heart last year, did obtain a redshirt for last season as speculated. I think the only game she played in last year was the exhibition game v. the US Select Team.

I don't see Mercyhurst transfer Geena Prough on the roster, but WHKY blogger tells me that Prough doesn't officially become a Badger until Fall and so the team won't comment on her 'til then. (Thanks, blogger!)

The roster includes 8 freshman:
G: 30 Becca Ruegsegger
D: 5 Stephanie McKeough, 15 Alev Kelter, 16 Saige Pacholok
F: 10 Derya Kelter, 18 Brianna Decker, 19 Breann Frykas, 21 Lauren Unser

I should also point out that apparently Alev and Derya Kelter's last name is actually Kelter Perusse, and although they go by Kelter, they're listed on the roster as Perusse. Also, Alev goes by her middle name (her bio lists her first name as Leyla).
