Women's hockey: Badgers sweep Warriors with shutout win

The top-ranked Wisconsin women's hockey team (17-2-1) defeated Wayne State (6-11-3) 3-0 Saturday afternoon at the City Sports Center Arena in Detroit. Redshirt freshman goalie Jessie Vetter earned her first career shutout in just her second college start and stopped 11 shots on goal.

Sophomore forward Jinelle Zaugg, who notched a hat trick Friday, junior forward Heidi Kletzien and senior forward Grace Hutchins all scored for Wisconsin. Senior forward Sharon Cole added a team-high two assists, while freshmen forwards Erika Lawler and Tia Hanson and rookie defenseman Angie Keseley also contributed assists.

Wayne State sophomore goalie Valery Turcotte finished with 33 saves and gave up three goals in her 10th loss of the season.

Wrestling: Badgers finish 2-1 at Lonestar Duals

The Wisconsin wrestling team fell to the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga 19-18 but came back to defeat Brown 36-3 and North Carolina 21-15 at the Lonestar Duals in Dallas Saturday.

Junior Tyler Turner (149), sophomore Craig Henning (157) and redshirt freshman Dallas Herbst (197) defeated all of their respective opponents to finish undefeated.

UT-Chattanooga won the first three matches of its dual with Wisconsin to take a 9-0 lead but Turner defeated Aaron Martin 3-2 and Henning defeated Jake Yost 7-4. UW picked up pins from senior Kelly Flaherty (174) and Herbst to take an 18-16 lead but Moc Israel Silva took down senior Lee Kraemer (197) 8-2 to give UT-Chattanooga the victory.

Turner, Herbst and Flaherty each pinned their opponents as the Badgers easily defeated Brown. Turner, Henning, Herbst and senior Tom Clum (133) all earned wins in Wisconsin's 21-15 victory over North Carolina.

"The loss to UT-Chattanooga was very disappointing, we just came out flat" said assistant coach Cory Wallman. "We were able to turn things around and win the next two duals, but we need to keep improving for the Big Ten season."
