Woman-spiration Wednesday: Paige Selenski- Featured on the cover of the 2014-2015 Longstreth FH catalog. Paige is a Shavertown, Pa. native and forward on the U.S. National Team. Since joining the National team in 2009, Paige has participated in the 2012 Olympic Games and helped the team to a gold medal in the 2011 Pan American games. She led an outstanding career at University of Virginia, being named 2012 Virginia Female Collegiate Athlete of the Year, ACC Player of the Year and ACC Offensive Player of the Year. She was also a four-time Longstreth/NFHCA Division 1 All-American. Her speed and strong stick skills are what make her such a vital assest to the U.S. team. The pink and teal Gryphon Tour, otherwise known as the Paige Selenski signature stick was designed by Paige and will be available at Longstreth later this season. Paige is very excited about the stick as the two colors she chose represent and support breast cancer and ovarian cancer in memory of her aunt and mom. On her Instagram page, Paige (@paigeselenski) posted on 4/21/14, “Both women have been two of the most influential and inspirational people in my life. They made me a better person and taught me all of life’s hardest lessons… but most importantly, they taught me to fight and be strong in every aspect of life.. even when you don’t always win in the end.”
