A few days in the past, Michelle Vittese assumed the duties of teaching the Temple College discipline hockey program.
It’s a transfer necessitated by the resignation of Susan Ciufo-Bennett, however for me, Vittese’s rent is a wistful one. That’s as a result of if issues had been completely different, Vittese would nonetheless be an elite discipline hockey athlete within the high-performance pool. Had she continued her profession after 2018, I feel she and some of the veterans from the Rio 2016 staff may have made an unlimited distinction in Olympic qualifying staff towards an India staff which received its approach into the Ultimate 4 for the Tokyo Olympics.
Vittese has performed with distinction in her high-performance profession, first profitable gold within the U-14 division of the Nationwide Futures Match, then enjoying on a number of extremely profitable U.S. groups. She was on groups that received two consecutive Pan American Video games gold medals and helped convey the US its first main trophy within the 94-year historical past of worldwide play.
I feel that is the beginning of one thing nice in Philadelphia.
