Wisconsin Badger Weekend Review


We at Badger of Honor will do our best to keep you updated on the full activity of all Wisconsin Badger spots.

Basketball and football can dominate the headlines and coverage.  But there is a great number of Badger teams and athletes that warrant attention.  Below is a quick recap of other Badger sports competing over Easter weekend April 14-16, 2017

Wisconsin volleyball dominated UW-Green Bay dispatching the Phoenix in Madison in straight sets (25-13, 25-22, 25-16).

Wisconsin softball took 2/3 games @ West Lafayette against Purdue softball.  Waukee, IA native and Badger freshman P Kaitlyn Menz improved to 18-5 on the season posting wins on Friday and Saturday.

Wisconsin #12 men’s rowing competed at the Stanford Invitational.  The Badgers were swept 3-0 by #1 California and #2 Washington, but responded nicely sweeping #20 Oregon State later in the competition.

Wisconsin men’s rowing also competed against Minnesota/MSOE in Madison on Lake Mendota. The Badgers swept all 10 races for a perfect day on the friendly water.  Meanwhile, the Wisconsin women’s rowing team held a Saturday scrimmage of its own.

Wisconsin men’s golf tied for 6th at the Boilermaker Invitational paced by freshman Nick Robinson’s 3rd overall finish.

Wisconsin women’s tennis lost its final home match of the season against the visiting Purdue Boilermakers.  The Badgers fell 5-2 claiming wins at #1 and #4 singles but losing in 3 sets at #3 and #5 singles.  Wisconsin also lost 6-1 to Indiana in a match that was closer than the final scoreline indicates.

Wisconsin men’s tennis beat Penn State 7-0 which was its first men’s tennis triumph over PSU since 2012 according to the UW Athletic Department news release.  Wisconsin men’s tennis lost 6-1 to #2 THE Ohio State dropping two singles matches deep into the third set.

Wisconsin men’s soccer closed out the spring season with a 2-2 draw in Indianapolis against Big East power Butler.  The Badgers battled back twice from a goal down to finish honors even on the road.

Softball and volleyball with solid weekend performances while a mixed review from rowing and soccer.  Hopefully men’s and women’s tennis can channel its inner Big Sean and bounce back from some tough Ls to close out conference play next weekend.

On Wisconsin.  Forward in her name.
