Thanks for helping pave the way Judy! My 2 daughters love playing hockey! I hope they are still playing when they are your age!

Never played hockey growing up - or even knew how to skate. Started playing in WHAM nine years ago, and absolutely love it!! Thanks to you and everyone who have supported girls/women in sports.

To Judy and the other pioneers in the area of women's sports - thank you! I'm grateful every time I see high school girls playing hockey. They wouldn't dream of not being able to play; thank you for bashing those doors in!

Great article/profile! Thank you Judy. Without people like you blazing the trails, I never would have been "allowed" to play varsity basketball and softball and my dear sis would not have played college hockey. Kudos!

Thanks, Judy. I remember you from high school, and remember you were a good athlete. I have spent hundreds of hours watching my daughter play basketball, and she was even the first-ever female wrestler on her high school team. I wish you parents could have had that joy when you were younger.
