As the sun sets on the winningest Wisconsin women's hockey season in school history, Head Coach Mark Johnson announced five new members of the incoming 2004-'05 team June 9. Three freshmen and two transfer students will join a squad that finished fifth in the nation and 25-6-3 overall, just shy of a 2004 Frozen Four tournament invite.
The freshmen include local goaltender Jessie Vetter from Cottage Grove, Wis., and defenders Emily Morris (Potsdam, N.Y.) and Mikka Nordby (Watford City, N.D.) Vetter and Nordby both participated in the USA Hockey Girls Select Festivals in Lake Placid, N.Y. during their high school careers.
Sophomore forward Vicki Davis comes to Wisconsin from the University of New Hampshire where she played in 34 of the Wildcats' 36 games her freshman year, notching seven goals and 10 assists.
Cyndy Kenyon, a junior forward, transfers to UW from Northeastern University. The former Husky led her team in scoring during her sophomore campaign with 11 goals and 13 assists.
All five join freshman forward Jinelle Zaugg, from Eagle River, Wis., had announced her UW intentions November 2003.
