Lincoln-Way Central graduate and New Lenox native Jazmin Malinowski has played hockey nearly her entire life, and she grew up imagining herself one day playing for Team USA.

“I used to always dream about playing for an Olympic team,” Malinowski said. “I grew up watching [Sandburg graduate and Olympic hockey player] Kendall Coyne [Schofield] and playing with her,” Malinowski said. “Then watching what she was able to accomplish, I was like, ‘Whoa, I want to do that.’ I made it a goal to work my hardest and get there.”
