After a long four month winter season, the Holton Ice Hockey team wishes there was more time! After all the hard work in practice and competition, the squad has another successful season under their belt. They capped off the year with a MAGHL regular season title and Championship, Capitals Cup Girl’s Championship, and won their two WIHLMA Championship games to jump from 7th place to a 5th place finish in that highly competitive league. The 2013-2014 award winners were announced at Holton’s winter season banquet on Tuesday, March 4. The team had Co-MVP’s this year, senior Co-Captains Greer Korengold (1st team forward ALL-WIHLMA) and Blair Greenwald (2nd team defenseman ALL-WIHLMA). Goalie Lana Levin was the first recipient of Holton Hockey’s 7th Player Award given out to the player her teammates felt went above and beyond and contributed to the success of the team, but may not have received the recognition she deserved. The Coach’s Award was given out to Sophomore Olivia Thomas, an amazingly athletic rookie, not only to the squad, but to the game of hockey. Catherine Meyer also received recognition this season with an honorable mention ALL-WIHLMA selection. Thanks to the determined and energetic group of girls for their efforts throughout the winter and to the parents who volunteered to bring food, to run the clock, to sit in the penalty boxes, and for the many hats that a hockey parent wears during the season. Head Coach Kim Mathias and assistants Aaron Bill and Nick Galasso wish the seniors Greer Korengold, Blair Greenwald, and Assistant Captain Claire Huther the best of luck wherever they land next year and beyond!

The program begins in middle school with a development based schedule full of practices and a few local games. The Varsity team plays a competitive schedule in two leagues, the Mid-Atlantic Girls Hockey League (MAGHL) in the D.C./Baltimore area and the Women’s Interscholastic Hockey League of the Mid-Atlantic (WIHLMA) playing a variety of school’s from Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.
