Fall Classic: The Fall Classic in Syracuse, a staple in our Red Division calendar, showcased the highest level of competition in girls’ hockey, bringing together talented teams from across the northeast. The games were intense, and the players demonstrated exceptional skill and determination. A Michigan by Lily Winckler, Winchendon 16U lit up social media.
Columbus Day Showcase: Our third year in Pittsburgh, athletes at this event demonstrate their readiness, dedication, and teamwork. With players from multiple states, teams brought their unique style and approach to the game. The first Michigan of the weekend came from Coeur D’Alene 16U player Jessica Bobiles.
