Friday, 23 September 2011 00:00The Great Neck Wolverines High School Hockey Team, sponsored by Great Neck PAL, took the ice for the first time as a team this past Monday. They held their first practice of the 2011-2012 season. This year’s edition of the Wolverines has a good mix of all ages. The team is made up of three high school seniors, five juniors, seven sophomores and two high school freshmen. The team has a young nucleus that has the opportunity to improve and become a powerhouse over the next few seasons.
It is the job of the coaches to make sure the team is taught the skills necessary to compete and it is the job of the players to give maximum effort every time they take the ice. The Wolverines will be practicing at Parkwood every Monday until early November when the game schedule will begin.
