It's Every Day
Playing in every game at the 2005 World Championships including the final game, Hagerman helped Team USA to its first World Championship gold medal. This win has allowed Team USA to build confidence and drive going into the 2006 Olympics. "It was a great experience to be there, to be part of the team that won the first-ever world championship for the USA," she said to Deerfield News. "It's just great to be on that stage, to handle the pressure and the noise and everything. It's that whole atmosphere that you can't duplicate, but when you're there, you can feel it. It's been (a matter of) having more and more confidence in myself every day - knowing that I belong, playing my game, trying to remember what got me here."

On her experience being on Team USA: "I wouldn't trade this for anything else," she said to Deerfield News. "The last four, five months have gone by (so fast) - it feels like it's been two days. The places we've gone, the people we've met, (being on) the "Today" show. It's been an unbelievable ride."
