Women play hockey, too

I enjoyed Gordon Brunskill’s recent article regarding Penn State hockey and its effect on the youth hockey in the area. However, there is one glaring omission.

Are you aware that women also play hockey? That there is a Penn State women’s ice hockey team? That the youth teams also have girls eager to play and grow in the sport?

I understand that the focus was on the men’s team, and there’s nothing wrong with that. However, it would have only taken a sentence or two to acknowledge the other half of the population. USA Hockey had well more than 75,000 girls and women registered in the 2016-17 season.
