Intensity is high for girls ice hockey


After four years of the same matchup, on Saturday, Mar. 9, the girl’s ice hockey team took a 1-0 victory over the University of Liggett at USA Hockey Arena. The tough fight the whole game resulted in the breaking of Liggett’s three-year championship streak and taking the State Championship title thanks to a goal in the third period by Maeve Hix ’24 and an outstanding shutout performance from goalkeeper Evelyn Smith ’25.

The victory was a huge milestone for the team after several years of close games ending in losses. The team has acquired many dedicated supporters through their successful and suspenseful season who are equally as thrilled with their victory and invested in the games, such as Principal Moussa Hamka.

“It’s intense,” Hamka said. “The rivalry with Liggett is charged and it’s a nailbiter. (It’s) 0-0 (right now) and we’re all on the edge of our seats.”

After two years of hard work with her team, Charlotte Harr ’26 said she is ecstatic to have finally secured the spot as state champions.

“It feels so relieving to finally beat Liggett,” Harr said. “It’s so nice to have the weight lifted off our shoulders to not lose when we play them.”

The intense fight between the rivals throughout the game is one that the players will remember their whole lives, and Harr said it will change the girl’s ice hockey team’s comradery forever.

“I think this win will affect the team chemistry in the best way, I think we will all save this memory and still be talking about it in the future,” said Harr. “Our bonds will grow and we will still always have the memory of winning the state championship.”
