Badger Bonanza on the US Women's National Team Roster

Eight Badgers have been selected for the 23 player roster for Team USA that will compete in the upcoming Quest Tour in preparation for the 2010 Olympics. Those players include:

G Jessie Vetter
D Molly Engstrom
D Kerry Weiland
F Meghan Duggan
F Angie Keseley
F Hilary Knight
F Erika Lawler
F Jinelle Zaugg-Siergiej

Zaugg and Keseley are surprises to me, but Mark Johnson is the coach so why not go w/ what you know, especially when both players are worthy of a spot. Lawler/Keseley/Knight was the best line in Women's NCAA last season; not many games went by where a goal didn't involve that line in some combo, so maybe Coach Johnson sees that continuing on the Olympic stage.

We'll pass along more info as it becomes available.
