NAMiss Massachusetts makes Boston Bruins Ice Girls Team

BOSTON — It's not as if Rachel Welch needed another activity added to her already overflowing plate.

It already read something like this: sophomore at Merrimack College majoring in psychology. Holder of a full-time job. Currently the National American Miss Massachusetts Teen 2011. 

In other words, there was little time in her life for anything else. But this was an opportunity she just couldn't pass up. "I absolutely love it," said Welch, a 2010 Bishop Fenwick graduate, on being one of the newest Boston Bruins Ice Girls. "It's a completely new experience for me, and the thrill of going to all the home games and interacting with the fans is incredible."

The 19-year-old Welch, a former Bishop Fenwick football and hockey cheerleader, was one of 900 applicants who tried out for the Ice Girls in early September, and one of only five that was ultimately picked to join the team.
