Girard native Jen Schoullis and Mercyhurst alumnus Kelley Steadman will join 39 other players attending the United States Women’s National Team camp June 16-23 at the Olympic Center in Lake Placid, N.Y. The camp will determine the players that will train together and play in various events in preparation for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games, which will be held Feb. 7-23 in Sochi, Russia. That roster will be announced June 24.
The final 21-player Olympic team will be unveiled in late December. Schoullis, 24, and Steadman, 22, led the Boston Blades to the Canadian Women’s Hockey League championship this past March before winning gold with the U.S. at the IIHF Women’s World Championship in Ottawa, Ontario, last month.

Girard native Jen Schoullis scored the first two goals and Mercyhurst alumnus Kelley Steadman scored the last three to lead the Boston Blades to a 5-2 win over the Montreal Stars in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League title game last weekend at Centennial Community Centre in Markham, Ontario.
Steadman’s power-play goal with 8 minutes, 51 seconds left in the second period snapped a 2-2 tie against the two-time defending Clarkson Cup champion Stars. Then she completed her first hat trick in the CWHL and the first in the Blades’ tournament history. Former Laker Meghan Agosta-Marciano scored Montreal’s first goal of the game. She led the league in the regular season with 46 points.
Schoullis, who won a national title at the University of Minnesota a season ago, and Steadman now hope to represent the United States at the IIHF Women’s World Championship, which begins Tuesday and runs through April 9 in Ottawa, Ontario. Agosta-Marciano joins former Laker Bailey Bram on Team Canada’s roster.
