Hockey Senior Issue

Hockey town, Michigan. West Bloomfield High School continues this love of hockey into the school with its varsity hockey team. The four seniors of the WBHS varsity team are going to be missed. They have made an impact on the team during their four years of playing.  From becoming captains to being lead scorers throughout the season these seniors are a huge part of the team. They have helped teach and coach the younger players and so their legacy at WBHS will continue through these young players.

This season was a tough one playing against very difficult adversaries. Though WBHS was far from dominating the leader board they didn’t fall drastically behind. They kept pace with the others and played their best all throughout the season. All of the seniors are in the top five leaders in points and goals for the team. All seniors with impressive amounts of SOG its clear they dominate puck possession. The seniors have shown their great improvement and growth  they have achieved over their time at WBHS.

With games close at St. Marys Ice Arena many of WBHS students frequented the games. As much as the fans came to love going to games the seniors have grown close with each other and with their team. This sport became a huge part of their life that has made their high school experience. A few hard core injuries were a result of years of rough play for WBHS. Defensive center Ian Mcdonald actually had a part of his ear cut off by a puck during a game. Captain Drew Warnecke commented on the large job of being a student and an athlete. “I honestly didn’t learn how to do that until my junior year really. It was really hard at first. But its just putting priorities first. You’re a student athlete and you gotta make sure you get all your work done then you gotta make a quick transition.” A fast paced game leads to a fast paced life involving school and a sport. Being captains and leaders of the team WBHS Lakers hockey team will be changed with their moving on to larger rinks.
