Buffalo Grove trustees this week recognized the accomplishments of Megan Bozek, the Stevenson High School graduate who on New Year's Day was named to the 2014 Women's Olympic Hockey team that will compete in next month's Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Bozek, a Buffalo Grove native and former Daily Herald Standout who played her college hockey at the University of Minnesota, will play defense for the team, one of the favorites for gold at this year's Olympics. The Sochi Games formally open Feb. 7, and the U.S. women's hockey team plays its next game Feb. 8 against Finland.
