Two Women’s Hockey Players Invited To Team U.S.A. Development Camp
Two goalies will be leaving Pegula Ice Arena this week to participate in the U.S.A. Hockey Women’s National Team Goalie Development Camp. Hannah Ehresmann and Celine Whitlinger are the first two invitees to the camp in Penn State’s program history. Penn State Athletics sat down with the two goalies to discuss their expectations of the camp:
The nation’s top-18 goalies were invited to the camp. Both Ehresmann and Whitlinger have attended U.S.A. Hockey camps before, but not as Nittany Lions. They will also be the only two teammates at the camp, which will run from May 21 to May 24.
Whitlinger started 25 of the team’s 37 games, and tallied a 13-11-1 record to go along with an impressive .933 save percentage and a .217 goals-against average. Ehresmann had a 4-5-3 record, a .927 save percentage, and a 2.35 goals-against average.
The men’s hockey team is making waves for its massive year-to-year improvements, but now the women are getting in on the action too. Congratulations, ladies!
