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 character limit. Take a look as we highlight the happenings of UW sports that are not football or men’s basketball.

No. 1 women’s hockey

Lot’s of preseason news here as the defending champs are gearing up for the season opener at Lindenwood on September 27th.

First, the Badgers were officially ranked first in the preseason USCHO poll after winning the national championship in spring. WCHA foes Minnesota, Ohio State, and Duluth all joined UW in the top 10.

Next, the Badgers announced their captains for the year. Mekenzie Steffen will captain the team, while Abby Roque, Alexis Mauermann, and Kristen Campbell will serve as assistant captains.

Let’s keep ‘er movin’.

Wisconsin also announced that it will hold another rendition of “Fill the Bowl” by hosting Ohio State at the Kohl Center for the season finale on February 16.

Single game tickets are on sale now for 13 home games. Starting next month, fans can purchase tickets for “Fill the Bowl.” In the words of a certain UW administrator, get your tickets now because, before long, you probably won’t be able to.

No. 9 volleyball

Make sure you check out this week’s iteration of The Sett for all your volleyball needs! The Badgers improved to 4-2 after a pair of sweeps at the Clemson Invitational.

No. 22 women’s soccer

The Badgers (4-2-1) kept the game tied for the first 50 minutes against No. 5 UCLA at Wallis Annenberg Stadium, but the Bruin’s Kennedy Faulknor snuck one past Wisconsin’s goalie Jordyn Bloomer.

Wisconsin’s two losses have each been 1-0 defeats on the road against top-10 teams.

Men’s soccer

Wisconsin (2-4) is on a two-game losing streak after a pair of 1-0 losses at Butler and versus Portland.

While the results have not been there so far for the Badgers, goalie Dean Cowdroy made a spectacular save. More of this, please!
