The path to an Olympic medal is still looking extremely difficult for the United States women's field hockey team.
Just more than nine months ago, Maryland alum Keli Smith-Puzo was pregnant with her second son. On Monday, she became one of seven players with area ties to be named to the U.S. Olympic field hockey squad.
A teammate once said Centreville High School grad Claire Laubach's drag flick brought tears to the eyes of the best field hockey goalies in the world. It's a weapon that has allowed the U.S. women's national team to become a legitimate contender for an Olympic medal in 2012 after placing eighth in 2008.
"Maybe a bit lucky toward the end of the game," Bodimeade said. "But we got three points."
"We're looking forward to being back in the tournament," U.S. coach Lee Bodimeade said.
