Hockey Champ Brings Cup To Westport

Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals won the Stanley Cup.

Big deal.

Rebecca Russo and the Metropolitan Riveters captured the Isobel Cup.

And Westport’s got Rebecca Russo.

Yesterday, the National Women’s Hockey League champion brought her prize to her alma mater: Saugatuck Elementary School.

She held the cup while posing for photos with students — and former teachers like Peter van Euler and Amy Howland.

Then she headed off to Bedford Middle School.

No word on whether the Riveters are headed to the White House too.
