Team of the Decade

first_imgJessie Vetter led an unstoppable Badger defense during their title run.[/media-credit]Domination.Of all the superlative words that could describe the 2006-07 Wisconsin women’s hockey team, only that really encapsulates what the Badgers did en route to their second national title.Consider this: UW only had one loss, tied or broke 18 NCAA records and had two goaltenders with goals against averages under 1.00.Numbers don’t always tell the story, but in this case, the statistics are enough. Wisconsin outscored its opponents by just over three goals per game to lead the nation in scoring margin. They were first in power play and penalty kill percentage. The Badgers gave up an NCAA-best 36 goals in 41 games, never gave up more than three goals in a single game and posted 18 shutouts. Nobody scored more than UW’s 166 goals that season.Led by senior Sara Bauer’s 72 points (24-48-72), the Badgers had four players in the top 10 nationally in total points on the season. All but two players on the team registered at least an assist on the season — even sophomore goaltender Jessie Vetter had two assists.UW’s goaltending tandem of Vetter and senior Christine Dufour helped the Badgers lead the nation in scoring defense at 0.88 goals against per game. UW went 36-1-4 that season, the only blemish being a 0-2 loss to Minnesota-Duluth Nov. 24, 2006. The Badgers started the season 13-0-1, and after their only loss, finished the season on a 26-game unbeaten streak. Highlights included a 10-0 win at Robert Morris and a 2-1 OT win at No. 7 UMD in early February.Wisconsin’s biggest hurdle on its path to the title was its first game of the NCAA Tournament, a triple-OT battle against Harvard at the Kohl Center. Harvard goaltender Brittany Martin almost single-handedly kept the Crimson in the game, making 67 saves — the sixth-highest single-game total in NCAA women’s D-I history.UW’s Jinelle Zaug finally broke the stalemate, scoring after 127:09 minutes of play to send the Badgers to the semifinals after the second-longest women’s college hockey game ever.With the win, UW head coach Mark Johnson would return to Lake Placid, N.Y., where he was a member of the “Miracle on Ice” team 17 years ago. The Badgers would face much less adversity there, cruising to a 4-0 win over St. Lawrence and avenging their only loss with a 4-1 victory over UMD in the title game.The Wisconsin women won three national titles in the 2000s — or half of UW’s total team championships during the decade. While all three seasons were great successes, the second championship stood head and shoulders above the rest. With a second consecutive national title and 18 NCAA records set, the 2006-07 women’s hockey team is easily the team of the decade at UW — if not everywhere else, too.Honorable mentions: 2005-06 men’s hockey, 2008-09 women’s hockey, 2006-07 men’s basketball, 2000 volleyball.UW athletics saw a lot of good years this decade and a few great ones. The 2006 men’s hockey title team did a good job to earn the program’s sixth championship, while the volleyball team’s run to the title game was also great. The UW men’s basketball team earned its first No. 1 AP ranking in 2007, but lost in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.last_img read more

Indigenous experience more than the outback

first_imgTNS – Jo Farquhar Source = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J Domestic travel could go a long way, according to a study which found correcting misconceptions and stereotypes attached to Indigenous travel experiences could boost home grown holidays. According to results from a TNS Domesticate survey, Aussies link holidays surrounding Indigenous experiences to the outback and in turn hard work and prefer to postpone domestic trips for international vacations. TNS Travel and Leisure senior consultant Jo Farquhar said at the Domesticate Press Launch that Indigenous related trips have the potential to boost domestic travel numbers but the industry faces the challenge of shaking preconceived ideas. “When people are asked what they think of Indigenous experiences… they strongly associate it with the outback,” Ms Farquhar said. “When you probe further you start to get people saying that it is about sharing ideas and learning but that strong association with the outback is a challenge.” Ms Farquhar said that the misconception is that people are not aware that Indigenous experiences are not always based around outback experiences unless you are travelling to destinations like the Northern Territory. Research found that people surveyed were unable to name Indigenous tourism experiences in coastal or city areas and limit their searches to the outback. However, Australians aware of inter-city Indigenous attractions deemed them as “contrived and artificial” as well as organised to attract overseas travellers. “There is a perception that these experiences are largely designed for overseas visitors, who are unfamiliar with the culture and wish to see the stereotypes,” Ms Farquhar stated. The TNS Domesticate survey found that while 2010 domestic travel figures were slight increased from 2009, overseas travel continues to be the focus of Aussie holiday makers. The study was performed in November last year and is the fourth to be released by TNS since 2006. See e-Travel Blackboard on Monday for more on the TNS Domesticate survey.last_img read more
