Over the Columbus Day weekend, the NGHL hosted four distinct competitive events that catered to hockey players of all ages and skill levels and welcomed teams – 1300+ players – from 21 states – California to Massachusetts, Ontario (not a state!) to Florida.
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.
Congratulations to these division winners:
Fall Classic Futures East and West: For our up-and-coming stars, the Fall Classic Futures events are the perfect opportunity to shine. With an East – Buffalo – and West – Omaha – division, young players had a chance to compete at their level and gain valuable experience. These events foster a sense of camaraderie and growth among our youngest players.
