Olympic Bound Tommie Attends MPL Nations Cup

From the Official STU Womens' Site:

Lucrece (Lukie) Nussbaum, a 22 year-old Women’s Hockey Tommie, battled hard for her homeland when she joined the Swiss National team at the MPL Nations Cup (formerly known as the Air Canada Cup) held in Ravensburg, Germany.

After three games, Nussbaum finished 2nd in scoring for Defense in the tournament and 7th overall in scoring. Remarkably, she also led her team in scoring from the defense position. She is happy with the team’s results at the tournament noting that while they didn’t finish as high in the standings as they would have wished, the coaches had the opportunity to try new line combinations for the upcoming World Champioships in Finland.

During her 2007-2008 season with the Tommies, Lukie took home the Top Defensive Player award and also assisted the Swiss National team in a monumental way. Nussbaum’s strong skills helped the Swiss team qualify for the 2010 Olympics to be held in Vancouver. Spectators need not worry, in the interim the top performer will continue to make the Tommies proud with her strong work ethic and dedication to the team.
