Olympians visit OLM school


Students in the fifth grade at Our Lady of Mercy School in East Greenwich were treated to a visit from two Olympians on Monday, Feb. 12. Sarah DeCosta Hayes, whose children attend OLM, decided to surprise her twin sons and their classmates by bringing along teammate Lisa Brown-Miller. The pair were members of the 1998 Team USA Women’s Hockey Team that brought home a Gold Medal from Nagano, Japan. They were fresh from a weekend of celebrations at their alma mater, Providence College, where they and several other members of that storied ’98 team were honored, marking 20 years since they captured the Gold. Out of 20 players on the team, seven played for PC.
