Robert Morris University female student is top hockey player

Female hockey players may not be common; however, Ramey Weaver sits second in the nation in scoring, assists, and points. USA Hockey magazine reports that the Robert Morris University-Chicago student is on the nation's second best team.

Weaver qualified for the women's U.S. National University Team (Team USA), where she competed at the Winter World University Games in Erzurum, Turkey. Weaver is joined by fellow Robert Morris students Becky Katz and Rachel Black.

"The only time I've ever been overseas was for an [American Collegiate Hockey Association] select team," Weaver told the news source. "We flew to Switzerland and played games in France against the French national team."

Before qualifying for the competition, Weaver scored the game-winning goal and had an assist in Team USA's victory over Great Britain, according to the media outlet.

"When I get to [play] hockey at this level I get really focused and I want to do really well," she told the news provider.

In her spare time, Weaver gives private hockey lessons and fishes.

According to Hockey Canada, the first female hockey game was in 1892.
