Fardelmann makes the cut
Meghan Fardelmann knew she would face the toughest competition of her life when she tried out for the United States Women's Under-22 Select Team at the USA Hockey Women's National Festival.
The Lansing native didn't just make the team, however. She also was the top point scorer during the tryout when she tallied two goals and three assists for five points.
Fardelmann, a junior-to-be at Boston College, is one of five Eagles on the 22-player roster. Wisconsin, the 2007 NCAA Division 1 national champion, also had five players on the roster.
By earning a roster spot, Fardelmann joined her teammates in a three-game series against Canada on Thursday, Friday and Sunday at Herb Brooks Arena in Lake Placid, N.Y.
Canada swept the series with victories of 3-1 and 3-2 in the first two games before claiming a 4-3 overtime decision in the final contest. Fardelmann did not score in any of the games, but she was in the starting lineup for the third game.
