With a 1-0 win over Maryland, the Wisconsin Badgers became the 2015 regular season Big Ten Conference Champions for the first time since 1996, with contributions from FC Wisconsin Eclipse alums all over the field. Senior midfielder McKenna Meuer had the assist that secured the championship and leads the team in goals this season, junior defender Holly Heckendorf has started nearly every game of the season, and freshmen Steph Fabry and Chloe Knudtson have played contributing roles of the bench. Congratulations to coaches Paula Wilkins, Tim Rosenfeld, and Kristen Weiss - and congratulations to our 4 great alums!
