Despite securing their second straight sweep, shutting down Harvard over the weekend, the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) women’s hockey team still sits at number seven in the latest rankings.

The Bulldogs allowed zero goals over the weekend shutting out the Crimson 4-0 Friday and 9-0 Saturday.

Graduate forward Gabbie Hughes got a piece of six of those 13 goals, tallying five assists and one goal, becoming the ninth player in program history to reach 75 career goals on Saturday. That performance earned her Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) Forward of the Week honors.

Despite splitting with-then number 14 Western Michigan, winning 5-4 Friday and falling 5-3 Saturday, the UMD men remain unranked. They did receive 12 votes for the top 20 list.

Both Bulldog teams are off this weekend and return home for conference series December 2-3. The women will host Ohio State and the men Colorado College.
