The 5-foot-9 Duggan, who helped Team USA to a silver medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, helped her Boston Blades win the Canadian Women’s Hockey League title earlier this season, has a resume that includes four IIHF World Championships and three NCAA national titles at the University of Wisconsin. In 91 games wearing the Team USA colors over the last seven years, Duggan has recorded 35 goals and 24 assists for 59 points.

Now four years older and wiser, Duggan has a chance to finish what she set out to do in 2010: take home a gold medal.

Hamilton-Wenham girls cross country wins Division 2 All-State crown: The Generals ran away with its first state championship banner since 2008 this fall after four of their runners places in the top 30 of a field of 180 runners. The Generals earned 56 team points to grab the state crown; their closest foes were Cape Ann League rival Manchester Essex (115 points)

Sophomore Jeanine Zheng was seventh overall in 17:18. Freshman Olivia Horgan was 16th overall in 18:00, followed by senior Emily Horgan (27th, 18:15) and freshman Amanda Burnett (30th, 18:25). Sophomore Megan Stone ran 18:33 to wrap up the championship for Steve Sawyer’s Generals. It was the fourth All-State crown for Hamilton-Wenham (joining 1999, 200 and 2008), which has also won eight of the last nine divisional titles.

Bishop Fenwick football takes home Super Bowl trophy, caps off undefeated season: The Crusaders completed a perfect season by topping Northbridge, 28-0, in the Division 5 Super Bowl at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro. Fenwick completed a perfect 13-0 season, claiming the program’s third Super Bowl championship (the others came in 1999 and 2000).

These Crusaders will go down as the best team in school history. Senior quarterback and Salem News Player of the Year Nick Bona shined in his many roles on the field, while powerhouse running back Rufus Rushins, a junior, scored three touchdowns and rushed 158 yards in the victory. Fenwick finished the season with a school record 510 points scored.
