Congratulations to Dana Sensenig, a former student of mine, who will be taking part in the Olympics in Beijing this August.
This past Sunday, Dana, along with her now-Olympic-bound U.S.A. field hockey team, won the pre-Olympic international field hockey tournament in Kazan, Russia.
The U.S. went 5-0 in the tournament and never trailed in any game, while routing three of their five opponents in shutout victories. The U.S. outscored their opponents by a total of 27-4.
A recent graduate of Old Dominion University (VA), Dana will be spending the next few weeks with her folks here in Lancaster County before heading to the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California for a month of intense training. She will then head to Germany and Holland for a few test games, and then on to China in early August.
Congratulations on a job well done, Dana! Your eight years of intense training, sacrifice and dedication will serve you and your teammates well this summer as you proudly represent America in Beijing!
