In a matchup that many consider the biggest rivalry in women’s hockey, Team USA was able to beat Canada 3-2 in a shootout to capture the gold!

This ended Canada’s four gold medal streak and gave Team USA their first gold in women’s hockey since 1998.

Rockville native and Wootton graduate, Haley Skarupa, had one shot on goal in the game, but has played a major role in helping bring back U.S. women’s hockey to glory.

Congratulations to Haley and Team USA!
