WQAQ Sports names Bud Fisher Athlete of the Week
HAMDEN — The WQAQ Sports Department has named Men’s Ice Hockey sophomore goaltender Bud Fisher as its Athlete of the Week for the week ending on March 21, 2007. This is the second time this semester Fisher has won this award (January 31, 2007).
Fisher backstopped the Bobcats past Cornell in the ECACHL Quarterfinals thanks to 23 saves in a game 1 shutout, and 19 saves on 21 shots in game 2. Then, this past weekend, Fisher shut out St. Lawrence by stopping all 23 shots he faced in the ECACHL Semifinals. In the ECACHL Championship Game, Fisher was splendid for 2 periods before Clarkson got 3 goals past the netminder in the 3rd to win the ECACHL Championship.
For his efforts this weekend, Fisher was named to the ECACHL All-Tournament Team. In six playoff games this season, Fisher let in only nine goals.
The Bobcats end their season at 21-14-5, the 8th time in 9 seasons the Bobcats finish above the 20 win plateau. The winning season is also their 11th consecutive.
