Gov. Mark Dayton has declared Tuesday, March 20, "Gopher Women's Hockey National Champions Day" after the team won the NC-double-AA Division 1 Championship.
The Gophers beat top-ranked Wisconsin Badgers, 4-2, Sunday to win their first national title since 2005. It's the third national championship in the history of the women's program.
MPR News spoke with University of Minnesota's Women's Hockey Coach Brad Frost just after he and the team returned to campus.
Frost said there was much on his mind as the Gophers faced-off against the defending champion.
