U.S. Senator Al Franken (D-Minn.) congratulated the University of Minnesota Golden Gopher women’s hockey team on winning its third NCAA Championship in team history, and first since 2005. On Sunday, the team beat defending champion and top-ranked University of Wisconsin Badgers 4 to 2.
“Minnesota is the state of hockey, and I’m very pleased that the trophy is coming back home,” Sen. Franken said. “Most of all, I’m proud of the dedication and effort put forth by these tremendous student athletes. As a Gopher fan, I congratulate the players, coaches, and the school on a much-deserved and well-earned victory.”
