NAMiss Massachusetts makes Boston Bruins Ice Girls Team

It's not uncommon for people to think that pageants are for "girly girls." It's not uncommon for "tomboys" to think that pageants aren't something for them. But......this goes to show that NAM re-efines pageantry, and is truly is for TODAY's girl..."girly girl," "tomboy," or none of the above!

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."
