Danielle_StrohmierDanielle Strohmier of Chicago made her first USA team this past summer. Along with fellow Lady Corbra’s teammate Eileen Meslar. The two headed to Zug, Switzerland for the 2015 World Ball Hockey Championship. The Chicago Lady Cobra’s are a women’s team from Chicago that now travel to several tournaments on the east coast. From the team website “Many of us were first introduced to dek hockey as children when we played in a coed league in a southwest suburb of Chicago. There, we learned how to hold a hockey stick, take a slapshot, and compete. We discovered the unique challenges and rewards of being a female athlete in a predominantly male sport. Many of us were the only girls on our teams, and we often heard the phrase, “Don’t let a girl beat you to the ball!” But that didn’t stop us; it just empowered us to play harder. “

Danielle’s interview is the 3rd of a series of articles being done on women’s ball hockey.  From the artricle, “While 2015 has represented a landmark year for Strohmier, including her inaugural season with Team USA, it has also been one composed of personal and competitive growth. Reflecting on such an eventful time with great pride, she does so incorporating maturity, displaying a willingness to learn and the desire to reach for even greater potential”
