Farmington High School senior, Abby Bollig, has been playing hockey for 13 years. Bollig started playing hockey as a forward when she was 4, but at age 11 switched to playing as a goalie. She is now 17, playing for the Farmington Girls Hockey team. As a kid she looked up to Henrik Lundqvist who plays for the New York Rangers and Noora Räty who played for the Minnesota Gophers. Bollig said, “What I loved about them so much was how they never gave up when they had tough games and always preserved.” Bollig has gotten awarded MVP at the Farmington Holiday Classic Tournament and she made the All-Tournament team with Farmington teammate Ellie Moser. Bollig is planning to continue her hockey career at Augsburg University. When asked why she wanted to play college hockey and her plans for the future Bollig said, “It’s always been a huge goal of mine to play college hockey and I feel like I have accomplished a huge goal, but the next step is setting a bigger goal to hopefully win a national championship at Augsburg University. Many people have asked me why I chose Augsburg and I said because I felt right there like it was my home. I loved how everything was around me, the team was great, and so much more. I am planning on studying to become a kindergarten teacher. I am excited for the future and what’s ahead of me but I couldn’t do it without my family, friends, teammates, and coaches along my side.”
