The Haydenettes have traveled the world. They have been to France, Sweden, Finland, Italy, Switzerland, Canada, Czech Republic, Croatia, and Hungary.
“The best part is we can all calm each others’ nerves,” said Kelly Ottaviano, 19, a Haydenette and communications major at Merrimack College. “We’ve already skated together for five years.’’
Haydenette Jenna Longo, an accounting major at Bentley University, said their passion is off the charts.
“We wake up thinking of it and go to bed dreaming about it,” Longo said. “A lot of my friends are Division 1 hockey players and their jaws just drop to the ground when they see us skate, they are so impressed with the athleticism and precision.”
But more important is their team motto.
“Perform beautifully in life.”
