Mia Biotti '16 (back row, center) was selected to the U18 USA Women's Hockey Team for their three-game series against Canada in Lake Placid, NY. The U18 US vs Canada series has been held annually since 2007 and features top athletes from all across the country. It was quite a journey for Mia and her teammates, who began the selection process in Minnesota early in the summer and were named to the final team just a week before the series. Despite dropping two of the three games against their Northern rivals, Biotti and her teammates played well and proudly represented their country.
