UPDATE: Athletic Director Michael Denise says:
"We would like to congratulate the Boys Ice Hockey Program for being considered as a top team for the Division 1A “Super 8” Ice Hockey Tournament.
"Unfortunately, the team was not selected to participate in the 1A Tournament, therefore they boys will be a top seed in the Division 1 South Sectional Tournament. Seedings, contest dates, sites and starting times will be determined by tomorrow."
