Hockey Season Update


As the boys and girls hockey seasons reach their midpoints, they are both working towards a strong finish. With half of the season done, the teams are looking at where they can improve to finish the season out successfully.

The boys Varsity team has played 11 games, with a record of 6-4-1. Captains Kellen O’Rourke and Riley Lackner stated that they have “had a pretty successful season so far”. While they had a strong start, there are things that they are looking to improve, but they also have many strengths that they can use. O’Rourke and Lackner said that their strengths include their “ability to move the puck and play as a team” and that their team “is very dedicated and driven to getting better”.

Heading into the second half of the season, O’Rourke and Lackner are hoping to “continue to win the big away games”, as the “team will mostly be playing on the road” for the remainder of the season. O’Rourke is “expecting to see much more physicality and grit” from the team, hopefully leading to a successful close to the season.

The girls Varsity team, which is a combination of Roseville and Mahtomedi girls, is also off to a strong start. They are 17 games into their season with a record of 9-8. Junior Olivia Martin believes that the team “had a slow start to the season” but “are continuing to grow every day”. After losing three senior defensemen last year, the team is working to fill the gap they left in order to strengthen the team.

As the girls make their way towards the end of the season, Martin says that “everyone must be focused and working hard at practice” in order to be ready for sections. With the work that the team puts in, Martin states that they “will have a fun and successful second half of the season”.

To finish, the girls Junior Varsity team is hoping for a successful remainder of their season. Freshman Cate Sagor said that the team has “been playing well together” but that it has also “been really fun to get to know new girls” as they build a strong team throughout the season. While the team excels in their support for each other and ability to adapt to changes, Sagor is hoping to see a few improvements. Some of the improvements Sagor listed include more offensive play and better control during power plays. With half of the season done, Sagor says that she thinks the team has “more wins ahead of [them]”.
