A week after winning her second consecutive National Championship at Wisconsin, Bismarck’s own Britta Curl is continuing her streak of good fortune with another milestone, being named to the 2021 U.S. Women’s National Hockey team to compete in the 2021 International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) Women’s World Championship.

This is not Curl’s first time representing the Red, White, and Blue, as she’s played for the Under-18 and Under-22 teams and was even listed to play in last year’s IIHF Women’s World Championship, (until it was canceled by the IIHF due to the coronavirus).

You can follow Curl and the rest of the team when they compete in Nova Scotia May 6-16. Afterward, Curl will be returning to the University of Wisconsin for her senior season next winter and attempting to win her third National Championship.
