Congratulations to the 2016 CCWHA D2 Champions: Northern Michigan University!
After losing in a heart-breaking shootout in the D2 Championship game last year, the NMU Wildcats came to Flint ready to play. They started the weekend off with a win over Notre Dame 7-0, then went on to beat Aquinas 7-3 and finished up pool play with a win over Michigan State 6-1 and earning them the top seed in the Championship game. Freshman Allison Carlson scored a hat-trick in Sunday’s Championship game, which would ultimately end in a 5-1 win for the Wildcats, and would also earn Carlson the MVP trophy. Northern’s win will earn them an automatic bid to Nationals next month in Kalamazoo, MI. Congratulations Wildcats and GOOD LUCK!! Coaches votes for All-Tournament teams are being gathered and will be announced in the next 2-3 days.
Tournament MVP: Freshman, Allison Carlson (NMU)
