The Minnesota Duluth women's hockey team will be honored by President George W. Bush on June 24 at the White House in Washington, D.C.

The NCAA Division I champions will be part of a 2:30 p.m. CDT ceremony on the South Lawn.

Previous UMD championship teams were honored by President Bush in 2001, 2002 and 2003.

Last season, UMD beat New Hampshire 3-2 and Wisconsin 4-0 to capture the NCAA title at the Women's Frozen Four on March 20 and 22 at the DECC.

The Bulldogs set a school record at 34 wins, with Western Collegiate Hockey Association regular-season and playoff titles.

UMD Chancellor Kathryn A. Martin will make the trip with the team.
