Congratulations Gina D’Amaro, Director of Athletics, named to the United States Women's Street Hockey Team

June 6, 2011 General, Bulldogs Athletics, Bethpage, Patchogue 0 Comments

Our very own Director of Athletics here at Briarcliffe College was named to the United States Women's Street Hockey Team! She was born a natural athlete; playing sports with her siblings all day and all night.

D’Amaro took up street hockey after high school. Long Island is a growing hotbed for National Hockey League players, and street hockey is no different among younger athletes.

She's taken her love for the sport and turned it into an international success. D’Amaro was the captain of the 2009 U.S. Women’s National Street hockey team and has once again been named to the roster in 2011. The team will compete for the world championship in Slovakia starting June 19.

“I will always remember after each game at the world championships when they play the national anthem for the winning team,” she said. “That is what this is about. Winning the game to hear your national anthem played brings chills to anyone’s spine. That is the highest honor.”
