LUZERNE COUNTY -- The United States won gold at the 2015 Pan-American games in field hockey.

Members of the team were in Luzerne County on Sunday, holding a clinic for young players.

Seventeen women on the roster hail from the Keystone State, many from Northeast Pennsylvania.

While the young girls had a chance to learn from the best players in the world, the veterans see this as a way to give back.

"It's so great being back here at Wyoming Seminary and back in the Wyoming Valley and training with some local girls," said Kathleen Sharkey, U.S. Women's Field Hockey.

"You know, they're asking all kinds of questions about our college career, our high school career and our experience on the national team. So I think it's great to just expose them to the potential where field hockey can take you," said Kelsey Kolojejchick, U.S. Women's Field Hockey.
