The Field House Chronicles: Rhodes to Glory

Women’s soccer is underway, and volleyball scrimmages.

Wisconsin Athletic Department Communications

Welcome to The Field House Chronicles, where we look at the goings on of the wide world of Badger sports. We almost called it “The Field House / Kohl / LaBahn / Goodman / Porter / McClimon / Nielson / URidge Chronicles,” but it maxes out the Chorus character limit. Take a look as we highlight the happenings of UW sports that are not football or men’s basketball.

No. 16 women’s soccer starts off the season 1-1

Women’s soccer kicked off the season with a 1-0 road win over UCF on August 22. The Badgers’ loan goal came in the 64th minute as standout Dani Rhodes poked in a rebound from Cammie Murtha.

Badger goalie Jordyn Bloomer earned the shutout which included stuffing a penalty kick in the closing minutes.

Bloomer did her best in the Badgers’ second game of the season against No. 1 Florida State, keeping the defending champs scoreless through regulation. However, FSU broke through in OT, giving the Seminoles a 1-0 win.

The Badgers take on Marquette in Madison this coming Thursday.

No. 5 Volleyball Cardinal vs White Scrimmage

My colleague Matt Rock is going to be our tour guide for volleyball this season, and we won’t shy away from an update or two here as well. Volleyball season is right around the corner, and the team... well... tied itself two sets to two on Saturday.

The fifth ranked Badgers have an excellent roster, and I’m excited to see Dana Rettke and Sydney Hilley return to the Field House.

#CawlidgeHawkey is ‘round the corner!

Men’s hockey started practice last week! Granato has a lot of talent on his roster, but he hasn’t been quite able to make it click yet. It’s going to be a pivotal year for Granato’s tenure.

Also, women’s hockey officially announced its 2019 recruiting class signees, and it’s an incredible bunch. It’s highlighted by:

  • former Patty Kazmaier award winner Daryl Watts, who transferred from Boston College,
  • Grace Shirley, who will play along side sister Sophie Shirley,
  • and Dara Greig, an up-and-comer for Team Canada.

It will soon be a great day for hockey, friends. Very soon.
