Women’s soccer players and hockey players in general are set to be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
They include All-Star All-Stars Abby Wambach and Laura Harvey, who won gold medals at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang and the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Canberra, Australia.
Wambacht, who played for the U.S. women’s national team, and Harvey, a Canadian who was the most decorated American player in women’s hockey history, were inducted in 2017.
They are joined by the likes of Abby Wyshynski, Kristin Scott and Amy Rodriguez.
They also include three current Olympians, former Olympians Abby Klimchuk and Laura Ferraro and current Olympian Amy Rodriguez, who has a history with the team and helped build it.
Wyschynski was inducted during the 2018 All-American Games in Las Vegas.
The Hall of Famer’s father, John Wyshit, was the first woman to win a gold medal at the Olympics, beating the U:S.
team in Beijing in 1976.
In 2020, the Hall of Famers will be honored in front of a panel of members from around the country.
Wombats head of hockey operations Dave Bierhoff, who was with the U, said the induction will be the most diverse inductees in the history of the organization.
Wieshynski and Wambacha will be joined by former Olympic champion Laura Ferrara, who had a career that included playing for the United States at the Winter Olympics and the Commonwealth Games, and former Olympian Rodriguez, a former captain of the U-18 team that won gold in Vancouver.
Rodriguez played for Wieshl, the U’s captain, and the U women have two Olympic medals to her name.
The women will be presented with bronze and silver medals for their efforts at the 2016 and 2018 Olympics.
The Women’s Ice Hockey Hall Of Fame was created in 2012 and consists of more than 600 members.
The event is open to anyone who would like to be considered.
