Alumni, Friends and Family,

2015-16 academic year is completed

Last week we finished final exams. Congratulations to our 3 seniors Brock Horwath, Brett Hochstaetter and Nick Veling on earning their undergraduate degrees. It wasn’t always easy, but they are now graduates of the UW-Madison! Brett can now focus on his July wedding. TJ Ruschell earned his undergraduate degree and will be starting his graduate program during his senior year of eligibility. We have everyone academically eligible next year. That may seem a minor thing, but anytime you have any group of over 30 college students and they all get the job done, it is something to recognize. We were led by Andrew Crone earning a perfect 4.0. We also had 75% of our freshman finish the year with a 3.0 or better!

Junior World Team Trials

This past weekend we had 4 Badgers qualified to compete in the Junior Team Trials. Ryan Christensen and Hunter Ritter both placed in the top 6 at 84kg and Cole Martin earned a top 6 place at 65kg. This was a tough competition as there were a few NCAA All-Americans competing (2 NCAA finalists), with none of them making the team. Coach Hull is scheduled to help with this Team as they compete at the World Championships in France in September.

Medbery Training

Connor Medbery spent this week in Ohio training with USA Olympians Kyle Snyder and Tervel Dlagnev. Connor has certainly taken advantage of his Olympic redshirt year and will be ready to challenge for a National Title this coming season.

Go Badgers!

Coach Davis
