Illinois’ Bozek, Coyne & Schaus Go for Gold in Sochi, Russia!

At the conclusion of the second period of the Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs on New Year’s Day, the 21 members that will make up the women’s squad representing the United States at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, walked through the tunnel and carefully circumnavigated the frosty football field and leaped onto a stage at the Big House in front of the largest crowd ever assembled to watch a hockey game. Among the 21 women rostered to the Olympic team are three Illinois natives. Megan Bozek, a Stevenson High School graduate from Buffalo Grove, Kendall Coyne, a Sandburg High School graduate from Palos Heights and Molly Schaus, a former Naperville resident who attended Benet Academy her freshman year.
