Men’s, women’s hockey bring 4 titles to Madison

first_imgThe men\’s hockey team celebrates their 2006 NCAA National Championship.[/media-credit]Change and success were the themes for Wisconsin’s hockey programs this decade. Both the men’s and women’s teams introduced new head coaches for the 2002-03 seasons, and the teams won a combined four national titles.The 2000s saw the Wisconsin hockey family gain a new member, as the women’s program began with the 1999-2000 season and quickly became the school’s most successful team.The legacy Badger Bob Johnson started in the ’60s with the men’s team was continued after his son Mark took over behind the women’s bench. The UW women won national titles in 2006, 2007 and 2009, and lost in the championship game in 2008. Wisconsin’s four consecutive appearances in the national title game are an NCAA record.Since 2000, the women have lost just 57 games, and Johnson is the winningest active Division I coach by winning percentage (.815). Johnson’s teams are 210-39-22-3, with three WCHA regular season and playoff titles each.Johnson saw arguably two of the greatest women’s hockey players ever go through Wisconsin in Sara Bauer and Jessie Vetter. Bauer scored the 10th-most career points in D-I history, netting 72 (24-48-72) during the 2006-07 season. Vetter owns almost every NCAA goaltending mark, ranking first in save percentage (.941), wins (91) and shutouts (39). She finished her collegiate career second to only fellow Badger Christine Dufour in goals against average (1.19 to 1.09).Wisconsin’s all-time points leader, Mike Eaves, took over the men’s team from Jeff Seuer and wasted little time in replicating his predecessor’s success. Eaves is 154-116-36 as the team’s head coach with one national title and four NCAA appearances.The men’s program saw its share of quality players in the 2000s as well. Goaltender Bernd Bruckler was named a First-Team All-American in 2004 — UW’s first goaltender to make the first team since 1980. In Dany Heatley and Kyle Turris, the Badgers had their highest-drafted players ever, Heatley going second overall and Turris third. Defenseman Jamie McBain was the 2009 WCHA Player of the Year, and forward Joe Pavelski followed up a successful UW career by playing for the San Jose Sharks.A banner year for both programs, Wisconsin became the first school to win national titles in both men’s and women’s hockey in 2006. The women went 36-4-1, defeating rival Minnesota 3-0 in the title game. The men posted their seventh 30-win season, beating Boston College at the Bradley Center 2-1 en route to a 30-10-3 record.With the dominance of the women’s team and continued success of the men, Wisconsin established itself as one of — if not — the premiere hockey school of the 2000s. Who can argue with four combined NCAA championships in five appearances?last_img read more

COUNTY COUNCIL REITERATES SHORTCOMINGS IF HOUSEHOLD CHARGE IS NOT PAID

Posted on by

first_imgDonegal County Council has admitted there are likely to be serious implications for services over the coming months if the Local Government Fund allocation remains reduced as recently advised by a Circular from the Department of the Environment, Community & Local Government.Director of Finance with the Council, Mr. Garry Martin, indicated that the Circular clearly clarified the link between Household Charge Payment performance in each county and the level of Local Government Fund that each county could ultimately expect to receive.“Ultimately the Council does not want to find itself in a position where consideration is required to having to reduce various expenditure headings. “However, it is clear that unless there is a material increase in the overall level of payment in Co. Donegal that this may very well manifest itself in the coming months.“An increase in the payment of the Household Charge in Donegal to an acceptable level will, based upon Department indications, ensure that the level of reduction in the Local Government Fund is minimised.“At present the reduction is a figure in excess of €4m. Clearly such a reduction in our expenditure capacity would have substantially detrimental effects on the services that we provide. However, we are attempting to manage this on an interim basis with a view to assessing how effective our appeals for an increase in the payment of the Household Charge will be.“This matter will be reviewed in September and we will be in a better position at that point in time then to assess what the likely prospect of mitigation is in relation to the reductions in expenditure.” Referring again to the almost 50% of persons liable to pay who have paid in Donegal, the Director of Finance thanked them for their continued positive engagement with the Council and thanked them for their payment of the Household Charge over the past number of months.“I would appeal again to those who have not yet paid the charge to do so at the earliest possible opportunity, given that the charge is clearly one that is linked to our capacity to provide the planned services for the year.“Furthermore, from the perspective of the person that owes the charge, each month sees unnecessary additional charges and interest accruing,” he said.The charge if paid during August and including interest and penalties to date amounts to €115 and can be paid at any Council Office throughout the County or if more convenient, through www.householdcharge.ie. COUNTY COUNCIL REITERATES SHORTCOMINGS IF HOUSEHOLD CHARGE IS NOT PAID was last modified: August 3rd, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal County CouncilHOUSEHOLD CHARGElast_img read more
