We're goin' to the show!

As many of you know, this year I jumped back into hockey coaching after being out of it for one year. I became an assistant coach in our high school program, and I had a blast! I was responsible for our JV team, and I am also the goaltending guru for the varsity. Our JV team compiled a record of 20-4-1, and last week our varsity earned a birth in the state hockey tournament, which is known in Minnesota as "the big show." We did it with a 7-0 victory over Crookston, a 2-1 double-overtime thriller with Thief River Falls, and a 2-0 nail-biter over East Grand Forks. Our section tournament was held in Thief River Falls, which is about 100 miles from here, so I've been busy.

Tomorrow, I'm headed with the team for St. Paul, and I'll be gone for a week. I plan on bringing my laptop with, but along with the other coaches, I'll be responsible for twenty-plus teenagers twenty-four hours a day for about six days. So if I'm slow responding to comments, I hope you'll understand. But I do plan on trying to keep up on this. You're not getting rid of me that easily!

Duluth Marshall 3 Warroad 1. We outshot the Hilltoppers by a margin of nearly two to one, but that ain't what counts. There's no joy in Mudville. Tomorrow, the Warriors take on St. Cloud Cathedral for third place.

Warriors 2 St. Cloud Cathedral 1 in overtime. Warroad takes 3rd place in Class A. It was a great season, and I'm really glad I made the decision to get back into it.
