Nearly the entire roster of players took a break from Warrior play to try out for their high school teams... and all of those who were eligible made the varsity squad.
This latest accomplishment comes on the heels of the team’s victory at the U-14 Tier 1 State Championship last month and a quarterfinal appearance at the 2011 Bauer International Invitational. After the players compete for the high school teams, they will come together in March to prepare for what will be their second trip to the USA Hockey Nationals in the last three years. “From day one our goal has been trying
