“It’s exciting, and it’s nerve-racking, and it’s all of the above,” she said.

Katelyn Duggan said she was surprised by the number of friends who turned out.

“To see 50, 60 people show up on a Thursday afternoon — it’s pretty amazing to see all these people who love and support my sister. It’s pretty emotionally overwhelming, actually,” Duggan said.

Duggan said her sister went through a lot just to be able to play for the team, including suffering a concussion in 2011 that sidelined her for a time.

“She didn’t know if she was ever going to play again,” Duggan said. “And to come so far from where she was, she is incredible. ... Win or lose, silver or gold, it doesn’t matter. She’s coming home with an Olympic medal.”
