Nine Friars Named to USA Hockey Women's National Team
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Seven former Providence College women's hockey players and two current Friars were named to the 1997-98 USA Hockey Women's National Team on August 27. The nine athletes are part of a 25-player roster which will be cut to 20 in December and serve as the 1998 U.S. Women's Olympic Hockey Team. With nine athletes making the team, Providence College has more players on the roster than any other college in the nation (New Hampshire is second with five).
Three of the former Friars named to the team, Cammi Granato ('93, Downers Grove, Ill.), Lisa Brown-Miller ('88, Union Lake, Mich.) and Kelly O'Leary ('90, Auburn, Mass.), hold the distinct honor of being the only women in the country to have appeared on every national team since its inception in 1990.
The other PC players that earned a spot on the U.S. National Team are Chris Bailey ('94, Marietta, N.Y.), Laurie Baker ('99, Concord, Mass.), Alana Blahoski ('96, St. Paul, Minn.), Sara DeCosta ('00, Warwick, R.I.), Vicki Movsessian ('94, Lexington, Mass.) and Stephanie O'Sullivan ('95, Dorchester, Mass.).
The team was selected from a group of 54 players who participated in the Women's National Festival on August 21-26 in Lake Placid, N.Y.
