Hausinger named WIAC Player of the Year; Cahill honored too
Christian Hausinger of Anchorage set up others on the University of Wisconsin-River Falls hockey team all season, so it was fitting that the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference made the top individual award all about him.
Hausinger was named player of the year and headlined the all-conference team after leading the the NCAA D3 league in assists and points – as a defenseman, no less.
The 6-foot-1 junior blueliner was undoubtedly the best two-way player in the league, yet his offensive game really stood out.
Hausinger, of Dimond High fame, bagged 10 goals and 26 assists for 36 points in 29 games.
He had three different 5-game points streaks. Four times he recorded three points in a game. And twice he netted a hat trick.
River Falls teammate Cayden Cahill of Anchorage was named all-conference honorable mention.
The 5-foot-10 junior forward finished second on his team with 12 goals. He added seven assists to garner 19 points in 29 games.
Cahill, of South High fame, twice scored a goal in four straight games. Once in November and again in January.
River Falls posted an 8-3-1 record when Cahill scored.
