The Red Division Championships were held in Denver, CO over the weekend of February 4-6, 2022. Games were held at the Family Sports Center and the South Suburban Sports Complex - a new 206,000 square-foot sports complex that opened in February 2021 with one of the best views!
Our Members-only event hosted 21 teams in the 14U, 16U, and 19U divisions. We saw some amazing hockey with some nail-biting finishes.
Congratulations to the 2021-22 Champions!
As we planned the schedule we found we had a few ice slots available - perfect for a Skills Competition! The event standouts were 14U Natalie Andelova (Florida Alliance) who had the fastest lap at 16.66 seconds, and she hit all 4 targets in 16.39 for the most accurate shot across all 3 age groups, and 14U Makayla Mrzywka (Syracuse Valley Eagles) who was the fastest across all 3 divisions on the obstacle course, with a time of 22.81 seconds. Thanks to everyone who participated!
HONORING OUR SENIORS
At the end of each season, the NGHL honors our 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 today will go on to play D1 or D3 hockey, others will play ACHA or intramural hockey. These are all exciting and valuable experiences that will add tremendously to these athletes' post-secondary education.
Good luck in all your endeavors, seniors; we hope that you use the great lessons that hockey has taught you through the years.
Honored student-athletes were from:
- Philadelphia Little Flyers
- Carolina Jr Hurricanes
- Team Illinois
- Florida Alliance
- Team Colorado
- Boston Shamrocks
- Ironbound Premier
