“They should make a movie,” U.S. women’s hockey forward Hilary Knight ’12 (number 21, middle) said, summing up her team’s 3–2 win in a shootout over archrival Canada to win gold at the PyeongChang Olympics in February. Knight was one of four Badgers on the U.S. squad, which included Brianna Decker x’13, Meghan Duggan ’11 (right), and Alex Rigsby ’15. Team Canada had five Badgers: Emily Clark x’18, Ann-Renée Desbiens ’17, Meaghan Mikkelson ’07, Sarah Nurse x’17, and Blayre Turnbull x’15. “We had all the drama,” Knight said. “It’s sort of a storybook ending to an incredible series of accomplishments.”
