Congratulations to both St Rita High School and Lincolnway who will be representing Illinois at the USAH High School Nationals in St Louis. This National event will be held at the Hardees Ice Plex in Chesterfield MO beginning on Thursday March 19th and concluding on Monday March 23rd with the crowing of Pure team Champion and a Combined team Champion. Our Pure team representative will be St Rita where all players attend the same high school and Lincolnway will be our Combined team challenger where players come from more than one high school.
This is the sixth year of this event and while Illinois has not been able to participate all the tournaments due to timing conflicts, it has been extremely successful when we have been able to complete. New Trier High School has been twice crowned a National Champion and Providence High School has been a runner up. Thirty two teams are representing their state in either the Pure Division or the Combined Division with teams coming from New York to California. Let’s wish both St Rita and Lincolnway good luck in representing Illinois High School hockey at this National event.
Below is the schedule for the Girls Central District Tryout, Fond du Lac, WI. April 17-19, 2015. Mark your schedules accordingly. Teams will be posted on April 1 and will be emailed to all registered players also. This year we are pushing 350 players with a waiting list, so requests to be placed on a certain team will not be honored. All players are expected to be at the entire tryout Looking forward to seeing all at the tryout. Questions/concerns, email here.
