Wisconsin-Milwaukee picked for 11th year in a row

[HORIZON WOMEN] For the 11th straight season, Wisconsin-Milwaukee  was picked first in the Horizon League preseason women's coaches' poll. The Panthers have won the last 10 league regular season championships -- each year they have topped the poll.

Milwaukee returns eight starters from last season when it became the first school to post an 8-0 league record.

Horizon League Player of the Year Sarah Hagen heads the lists of returners after another standout season in 2009. She tied her own school and league-record with 24 goals to lead the nation. Entering her junior season, the Appleton, Wis., native has 48 goals and is just nine back of Lisa Krzykowski's school and league record of 57 career goals.
