Blugold women dominate Superior to advance to WIAC hockey tourney finals

Feb. 25—It was a weekend for the record books for the Blugold women's hockey team, whose next stop is River Falls and a shot at all the marbles.

By virtue of their Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) semifinal round weekend sweep of the University of Wisconsin-Superior, the Blugolds live to see another day and advance to the conference tournament finals. UWEC completed its rout of the Yellowjackets with a 4-1 win Saturday afternoon at the Hobbs Ice Arena.
