I was fortunate to be able to spend the second half of the 2016-2017 season with the Providence College Women’s Hockey program. From the locker room, to the weight room, to the practice ice, and finally during game time, I learned much from them about friendship and camaraderie among teammates. With small crowds and little chance of a pro career, these women are a great example of players working hard for love of the game. The team did an amazing job this year and is poised for even more success next year.

Here’s to winter surfing!
The first real snowfall in VT got me excited to snowboard soon. Here are a couple pictures of Shaun White from the Vancouver Olympics to get you in the mood.
