Nana picked up the game while in high school and came on strong in her first collegiate season. With competitve ice hockey in her athletic background, the Wolverines hope that Nana continues to develop as a stalwart defender. Nana has extremely fast feet and is a great strategist -- always analyzing situations and asking questions about how best to handle things. Nana learned a lot freshman year and continues to improve as a defender. Look for Nana to hassle attackers with her crazy tyrades in Japanese and her pesky faceguarding.
This year Kikuchi will look to improve her stick skills as she works towards a starting position. Nana is in the Ross School of Business majoring in Financial Mathematics and is also active in the Alpha Delta Pi Sorority.
