End Of Season Celebration and 2019-2020 Captains Announced!

Last night the Marauders celebrated the season at Pierce’s Inn with family and friends. Coach Dodds spoke about the team’s accomplishments and recognized each and every player for their individual contributions to the program both on and off the ice. Awards and presents were shared, and the night concluded with a slideshow of season highlights.

At the end, this year’s captains announced the new captains for the 2019-2020 season. Congratulations to Meredith Morhun (#2, left) and Chrissy Chow (#3, right)!

There is no doubt that these two are up to the task of honoring the tradition of HHS Girls Hockey and will help lead the way next year!

Rise and Grind! Marauders are off….

An early morning start, but the Marauders are ready!

‘Twas The Night Before The Championship

 

‘Twas the night before the Championship,
The team had a talk,
About what it would take,
To defeat the Exeter Blue Hawks

Coach Dodds said to the girls…

The Blue Hawks are strong
They have earned state acclaim
So it will take all that we have
To win our last game

Time to ‘Rise and Grind’,
the way we’ve done the whole year
Tomorrow will be a test
We need to kick-it into gear

We’ve had 19 league battles
With five tough ones out of state,
We stayed undefeated in NH
It’s an important team trait.

And the road to the finals
Was a particularly tough feat
Through #4 Berlin and #1 Oyster River
Both were tough to defeat

So WE must play strong team D,
And backcheck like crazy,
Work hard every shift,
And never be lazy

Use “Amherst” to attack,
The half-wall seam,
Get the puck to the points,
And drive to the net for a screen.

But most important of all,
Play with passion and skill,
Make every shift count,
Exert your strong will.

So Coach Dodds called a break,
To tell them “The Story.”

“The Story”- A Marauder tradition story about a prior championship game

Be focused and smart,
And never give up,
If you want victory tomorrow,
And a Championship Cup.

Rise and Grind Is the theme this year,
It will be our guide for the game,
And give us the strength
As we honor our name.

This family is ready,
To be at our best,
To add to the legacy,
With its own mark of success.

Now BOLAND, now YEGIAN, now SPERRY and MORHUN!

On LINDSAY! On DONALDSON! and second sister MORHUN

Now FLYNN , LEE, JOSEPH and TYSINGER so able

To the ‘ship CHOW, STONE, RUDD, and last but not least….KABLE!

After Coach Dodd’s story,
And the last drills were done,
The seniors exclaimed,
“It’s time for some fun!”

Aiden went first,
And with a wide grin,
Full of goalie gear
Slid half the way in

Rosey followed suit
And charged at the tunnel
This Colby Mule can move
And slid through the funnel

Claire gave it a go
Built up her speed
Pushed through the tunnel
A great effort indeed

Maggie skated the whole rink
And went down a bit quick
But she made it through
With her extra speed kick

Clara next turned the corner
And charged at her mates
Making an arch with their arms
Barely missing them with her skates

Emma was determined
And calculated her pace
To overcome the friction
And slide through with grace

Bryn was last
to celebrate our season’s story
This new Athena slid right through
and claimed Marauder glory!

Finally the team’s hallowed stick banging cheer,
Rhythm mounting and steady,
Onward! To the ‘Ship Marauders
YES YOU ARE READY!
