Player-Parent-Coach Meeting Sets the Tone and Expectations for the Season



4 teammates

A foursome of new team members:  Pepper Joseph (top left then clockwise), Sage McGinley-Smith,  Molly French and Rebekah Rudd.



The beat goes on.  The girls did well in the the two scrimmages and there is excitement  and a very positive buzz about the new team.  Tonight the girls and their parents gathered at the real season opener–  a meeting of parents, players, and coaches that has set the stage for what is expected.  No fake news here. Excellent academics, practice ethics, the code of conduct, and the schedule were all discussed.  The girls are ready to HONOR THE TRADITION.  Practice tomorrow PM and team photos. First game upcoming,  Saturday afternoon.

Scrimmage and Overnight Weekend


It’s a fun way to start the season– 2 scrimmages, a dinner and overnight together.

Here are a few glimpses of the new team– on the ice and gathering for some team bonding after the first scrimmage.  This may look familiar to some alums– this team is already looking like an HHS Marauder family.  Word is that the scrimmage went well and that the newbies were fun to watch and played well.  They are off to a great start!

Good luck at BFA tomorrow, Marauders.  Get some rest!

The Adventure Begins – Scrimmage Tomorrow

Congratulations to all the NEW Marauder Girls Varsity Ice Hockey players who are about to begin their journey with scrimmages and travel this weekend.  There is an overnight to initiate the season and learn about what it means to be part of this team.

Rest up, be ready!  Welcome to the  HHS GVIH family and tradition you have joined! Good luck to all the Marauders in the scrimmages! Let’s go, TEAM!



Congratulations to New Team Members- Welcome to the HHS Girls Ice Hockey Family!

Check out number 23 on the Bowdoin roster! Congrats to alumna JJ Taube, who will be playing on the Bowdoin women’s ice hockey team. Versatile player, she is on the roster as F/D!   JJ  adds a dynamic HHS element among her Upper Valley teammates Julia Surgenor and Meade Avery (both of Hanover Wild lineage).

Great job, JJ! HWPO—Hard work pays off! Have fun and know that your HHS teammates are rooting for you (except for the ones playing on other NESCAC teams) ! TNG!
