After a long winter offseason, Wisconsin used a warm weekend to travel down to Chicago and win the 2016 Whiskey 10s Tournament.
Shaking off the winter rust, the team earned four large victories in the social tournament against Chicago-area college and social teams.
Wisconsin defeated the University of Illinois-Chicago (UIC) 57-0 to open the tournament play. Additional wins against an Alumni Side of UIC and Illinois State sent Wisconsin to the tournament final to knock down the UIC Alumni side a second time for the championship.
Thanks to the milder weather, it was a fun day to warm up the boots and prepare for spring playoffs. Wisconsin backs captain Jenn Johnson applauded the team and shared that it “felt good to run around and tackle.”
