UMD Claims 4th NCAA Women’s Crown

UMD wins 4-0 over Wisconsin to claim its fourth women’s NCAA title in sports eight-year history.

Here is a portion of Shannon Miller’s opening statement from the postgame press conference.

You have to feel fortunate when you get into the final game because there are so many great teams across the country. I would like to say this, UNH is probably the best team we played this year, and we got so lucky to get through that game it was unbelievable. In the 20 years I’ve been coaching I’ve never ever left the rink and felt, wow, big time luck. So we survived that game, and today, I felt we pulled together the perfect hockey game.
