Letter: Local Olympians such an Inspiration

To the editor,

Congratulations! We could not be more proud of the 2018 U.S. women's hockey team.

Jocelyne, Monique and Gigi, your accomplishments on and off the ice have brought pride and honor to our neighboring states and to our country.

We are especially proud of our Grand Forks natives. Jocelyne and Monique, your commitment to the sport of women's hockey at all levels is exceptional. We were pleased in your recognition of Pete Elander for his impact on the outstanding skills that were part of your training at University of North Dakota. Your loyalty and support of the women's hockey program at UND is/was outstanding.

You will always be an inspiration to many, especially to young girls and women who strive to attain their dreams. Our very best wishes for a continuing fantastic future.

We are so proud.

Rodney and Joyce Medalen
