WOMEN'S HOCKEY TEAM EARLY FAVORITE FOR THE WHEATIES COVER?
Published February 19, 1998
General Mills officials said that the gold medal- winning U.S. women's hockey team "appears to be the leading candidate to adorn the commemorative post-Olympics Wheaties box," according to Jay Weiner of the Minneapolis STAR- TRIBUNE. Weiner reports, however, that there could be a "hitch" involving Team USA's Jenny Schmidgall, a Univ. of MN recruit who "could lose her eligibility" if featured. NCAA Dir of Member Services Steve Mallonee said that Schmidgall's name nor picture would not be allowed to appear on the cereal box. One option for Wheaties would be to place just a few of the players on the box (STAR TRIBUNE,2/19). NOTES: TNT will replay the third period of the U.S.- Canada gold medal game today, at approximately 5:00pm ET (TNT)....NHL Ice, the official web site of the NHL, announced the online availability of merchandise celebrating the USA Women's gold medal, including locker room T-shirts and hats, replica jerseys, sweatshirts and photos (NHL).
