Weiland won a silver medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics as a member of the U.S. women’s hockey team, capping an excellent career with the national team that also included four medals at the World Championships — gold in 2008 and 2009 and silver in 2004 and 2007. A defenseman from Palmer, Weiland enjoyed a trailblazing college career as a member of Wisconsin’s inaugural women’s team.
