Former Junior Warriors Making Impact on College Scene
The collegiate season may be young, but that has not kept several Valley Junior Warrior alumni from making headlines.

Former Warrior forward Ryan Leary (Marblehead, MA) was named the New England Small College Athletic Conference Player of the Week (NESCAC) after setting a school single-game scoring record in his team’s recent win over Skidmore. Leary did what many would assume to be the impossible as he registered an incredible six goals, including a natural hat trick in a 3:28 span in the opening period, in his team’s 10-5 victory over its NESCAC rival. The six goals broke the Bowdoin record of five, formerly held by Dick Donovan and Steve Ilkos.

That six-goal outburst allowed Leary to become the first Polar Bear to earn NESCAC Player of the Week honors this year. It also helped his team to continue its four-game win streak and jump to 12th place in the latest USCHO.com national rankings.

Meanwhile, Joe Hill (Newburyport, MA) and Jason Stahl (Londonderry, NH) continue to lead the way for the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. The duo has posted 11 and nine points, respectively, to lead the Corsairs in scoring. Hill’s average of 2.50 points per game currently leads the ECAC Northeast.

The team is also anchored by another Valley Junior Warriors alumnus – Jeff Green (Medway, MA). The junior netminder has played in all six games thus far in the season and boasts a 1.54 goals against average. Just one year ago, Green was honored as one of 15 semifinalists for the Joe Concannon Award, given annually to New England’s best American-born NCAA Division II/III men's college hockey player.

On the University of Massachusetts Lowell campus, former Valley Junior Warriors star and current junior forward Mark Roebothan (St. John’s, Nfld.) leads the River Hawks in scoring with eight goals and 10 points on the season. This past weekend, Roebothan scored a goal in each game against New Hampshire to make the league’s Honor Roll for the second straight week. Freshman teammate Todd Bartleson (Pepperell, MA) is also finding his legs as one of the River Hawks’ blueliners.

The ninth-ranked and undefeated Babson Beavers owe some of their early success to sophomore forward Chris Sabo (Wellesley, MA). The former Junior Warrior player has played in all seven games for the 4-0-0 Beavers.
