|Pines girls can be proud of effort against Storm|
Letter to the Editor:
On Saturday, March 1, I attended the Sectional finals game in girls hockey between the Central Wisconsin Storm team and our Northland Pines Eagles.
In my opinion, I thought our girls skated hard all game and played good enough to have won against almost any team. It was unfortunate to see their season end with a 2-0 loss at home after posting a 13-0-1 regular season conference record, but there is no need to hang their heads.The girls, the coaching staff and all who are involved with this team can be as proud of their accomplishments for this season as we are of them as their fans. Whenever our hockey programs go up against these bigger schools, it’s always special when I see us play well. It without a doubt says something about our community and our love for the great game of hockey.
It’s beyond me how four schools the size of Wausau West, Wausau East, D.C. Everest and Mosinee need to combine forces to form one team. How can the WIAA justify that? To qualify for the State Tournament seven consecutive years, as the Storm has, says something to me and something should be looked at somewhere.
I know what the scoreboard read after the final horn, but I don’t think there were any losers on the ice that day. Congratulations to the Northland Pines boys and girls hockey teams for a job well done.
