The University of Minnesota women's hockey team added another historic day to their memory banks on Monday as they spent the day visiting local state officials at the Minnesota State Capitol and having a social hour at Governor Mark Dayton's mansion. Governor Dayton also proclaimed April 15, 2013 "Gopher Women's Hockey National Championship Day".
The Golden Gophers began the day by heading to a State Senate session, where they were given a standing ovation by local Senators.
The team then bused back to Ridder Arena, where Governor Dayton proclaimed April 15, 2013 "Gopher Women's Hockey National Championship Day" in the state of Minnesota, in a special press event at Ridder Arena.
After a brief lunch break, the Maroon & Gold headed back to the Capitol to be honored during the House of Representatives session. Head coach Brad Frost and team captains Megan Bozek and Bethany Brausen were allowed on the legislative floor while the team sat in the balcony. The House also gave the team a big welcome with a standing ovation.
The team capped off the day with a trip to Governor Dayton's mansion for a social hour with the Governor himself and various local officials.
