During the Granato Cup Championship, the NGHL honored high school seniors with a rose 🌹 ceremony.
Part of our mission is to promote the advancement of elite players to the collegiate level. Some of the seniors acknowledged on February 17th will go on to play D1 or D3 hockey, others will play club or intramural hockey. These are all exciting and valuable experiences that will add tremendously to their post-secondary education.
We also strive to foster opportunities for women to pursue a career in hockey with the goal of ultimately becoming leaders within the league and member organizations. We sincerely hope that these seniors will use their youth and college hockey experience to improve youth hockey programs in their community, showing the next generational girls how they can succeed in the sport. Players, there will always be a pair of young eyes ready to look up to you and they will marvel at your skills and experience. Support and nurture them.
Congratulations, girls. You should be so proud of what you’ve accomplished in school and in hockey. We look forward to watching you in the years to come. Honored were student-athletes from:
St Louis Lady Blues
NY Islanders Elite
Ironbound Elite 19U
St. Louis Lady Cyclones
