Varsity Ice Hockey


OVERVIEW

The varsity ice hockey team had a great season this year. We competed in 16 games and finished with a 10-4-2 record, placing 4th in the MAGHL league and 1st in the WIHLMA Miran Division. Led by three captains, the girls quickly bonded as a group and welcomed ten freshmen to the team. We are graduating seven seniors who collectively scored over half of the goals scored this season. However, at 26 skaters and 2 goalies, this was one of the biggest teams in Holton’s hockey history and bodes well for the future of the sport at Holton.


On the ice, the girls often broke up in skill groups to work on their stickhandling, shooting, and different offensive and defensive strategies through small games and drills. We were able to go over to First Line Training Center to continue working on our skills on synthetic ice, which forces the girls to hone in on the basics of skating and puck work. Playing on synthetic ice can be very challenging and it definitely paid off as we transitioned back to regular ice practices. As our understanding of positions deepened and our skill levels increased, we were able to find more success in our games, finishing the season with our first ever WIHLMA Miran Division Championship title. The coaches are proud of how hard the girls worked this season and are excited to see what Holton Hockey will accomplish next winter!
