Woodbury Blazing Stars Featured in Hockey Day Minnesota

By Erin Laurents

I want to share this great video of the Woodbury Blazing Stars. The team was featured during ‎Hockey Day Minnesota 2014 when we invited the East Ridge Girls High School Hockey Team ‎to come and scrimmage our poly hockey teams. Fox Sports North was kind enough to film the ‎event as well as interview some of our athletes. Everyone had a fantastic time! Our athletes ‎enjoyed the opportunity to compete against East Ridge and to share their love of hockey with ‎them. Something that may not have been possible if not for Special Olympics! We are looking ‎forward to a rematch next year!‎‎

About Erin Laurents: I am the Head Coach of the Blazing Stars Special Olympics Team, which is located in ‎Woodbury, Minnesota. I have been with them for three years now and coach poly hockey, ‎softball, and basketball. I also play as a Unified Partner in Flag Football with them as well as ‎mentor two athletes who participate in the Athlete Leadership Programs.
