Emily Heckendorf, a 2011 Merrill Graduate and Bluejay Hockey Team Captain, has been honored by the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association. Emily has earned the honor of First Team All-Conference after a stellar senior season at Concordia University in Mequon, WI where she led her team in points and set the new standard for most goals in a single season. Emily is the third all-time leading scorer at CUW with 72 points. She cut her hockey teeth in the MYHA and resisted the urge to play with the girls of the Central Wisconsin Storm Program. After Playing with the Bluejays and the Team Wisconsin before and after program she began her career at CUW in the fall of 2011. Emily also played on the CUW Lacrosse Team. She could often be seen in the summers here in Merrill working with Eric Filipiak at the Parisi Speed School. Congratulations to Emily on an outstanding Collegiate Career! She is yet another example of the outstanding opportunities that are available to our youth through our program and the sport of hockey.
Congratulations to the Squirt A team for earning a seat in the 2015 State Touranment. The team did it with style by shutting out both of their opponents. On Saturday they beat North Lakeland at home by the score of 9-0 and on Sunday they defeated Price Ice 7-0 in Park Falls. The Bantams earned an automatic berth as the 2015 State Tournament host. It is fitting that this group of Bantams will host as they have been the top 4A team at this birth year for the past several years. Please see the links for the touranment brackets on the Team page. Good luck to both teams! We know you will represent us well. The Peewees fell just short of their birth, avenging an earlier loss, by beating Price Ice 10-2 in Merrill. They were defeated on Sunday in the Regional Final by a very strong Medford team that has had their number all year long. The Peewees should hold their heads high as they have improved much over the course of the year and are playing at a very high level. Better luck next year. We are proud of your efforts as well!
