Eau Claire (WQOW) -- The UW-Eau Claire men's hockey team continues to climb in the Division III national rankings.
The Blugolds are up to number three in the D3Hockey.com poll, while they're ranked fourth by the USCHO.
UWEC is still unbeaten after a good weekend at defending national champ St. Norbert. The Blugolds beat the Green Knights, Friday, with the two teams skating to a tie Saturday night.
UW-Eau Claire head coach Matt Loen says while being ranked is nice, the 7-0-1 Blugolds have longer term goals.
"The rankings don't mean much to us now," says Loen, "more or less it promotes our program. But we're happy with the way we started. We had six road games and we were 5-0-1 in those road games. I'm really happy with where our team is at."
UWEC will host Concordia (WI) this weekend. Saturday's game begins at 7:00 P.M., with the puck dropping at 2:00 P.M., Sunday.
