The 2011 NCAA Division III Women’s Ice Hockey National Champion Norwich University Cadets will be featured on national television Saturday April 30.

The Cadets’ memorable run to their first national championship in just the program’s fourth season was one of the stories chosen to feature in CBS Sports’ annual NCAA Championships Winter Highlights show which will air tomorrow on your local CBS affiliate at 2 p.m. EST.

NU (25-4-1) upset top-ranked Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) 5-2 on March 19 in Rochester, N.Y. to claim the first women’s team championship in school history.

The Cadets came full circle after reaching the national championship game last year and falling 7-2 to defending national champion Amherst.

The 2 1/2 minute segment will feature semifinal and championship game footage as well as player and coach interviews from the championship weekend.
