Celebration held for National Championship Blugold hockey team


Eau Claire (WQOW) - The Blugolds had plenty to celebrate, as their national championship-winning hockey team returned home to a celebration at Hobbs ice center this afternoon.

The Blugolds defeated Oswego State 5-3 in the national title game Saturday night in Lake Placid, New York. It's the program's first-ever national championship. The team says they're glad they could return home Sunday to share the experience with the fans who supported them all season.

"It's been spectacular. To come home on a Sunday afternoon and see the fans and everyone else out here rooting for us, it's just icing on the cake. It's just making more memories for us to cherish," says UW-Eau Claire Senior goalie Brandon Stephenson.
