The Hawks got outplayed and pummeled. Period.


Congrats to Alexandria. Very well played team effort.

Jeffy,

Regardless of the content posting those financials and proprietary minutes goes way beyond the level of appropriate. And because it was a topic to be discussed in minutes doesn't make it fact. You are way over the line there.

"in the minutes from a year or two ago"...You don't think there have been disgruntled parents who come into meetings frustrated because their player didn't make a top team?... and the reason was so and so moved in and was "recruited"? I am sure that likely happened (no idea) and if so, where do you ...

Let's see philosophical Eveleth's or North Shore's of the world even break into the top 20 in A even before you can have that discussion.

Thanks Kniven. People in the program seem happy too (none of us have any say in the HS decision making process however). That being said, I expect, (and support) an opt up after next year. Just my guess. I would add that when it happens it's not due to pressure from the outside. It would be a decis...

keep in mind...most the schools that "opt" up are very near AA size. Heck even Mahtomedi is within 50 kids of having to opt up. We are barely half AA size. And yes, that is even WITH open enrollment. Your Pee Wee AA team is ranked #1, Bantam AA is top 10 & you’re trying to STILL RATIONALIZE playing...

Is there any truth to Duluth Marshall building dorms on campus. All their usual recruits going to Hermantown an East. I personally think they don’t have much future without dorms. They could then recruit hockey players from across the country. And everybody knows that Hermantown hockey attracts tal...

Ely varsity is not exactly a superstar mark on the resume. May or may not make it big. Give the kiddo time to develop. 7AA nor 7A is not going to get excited until he proves himself. He will have plenty of time. Thats how Htown is.... seniors lead, jrs follow, soph sit down and shut up ...and fresh...

Plenty of very talented varsity ready 9th graders have been kept in bantams over the years. I too would be very surprised if PA changed that tradition. Bantams play twice the number of games it is arguably better for development.

With this elite player from Ely apparently going to H town ; my question to the experts is this: considering the schedule Ely played last year are all of you expecting him to jump onto the high school team and play well with their schedule?? There is a HUGE difference in the caliber of teams the tw...

IF this rumor is true...it will be interesting to see if the new coach insist he stay in Bantams as has been past practice with Plante. Big jump from the competition he saw playing in Ely HS or not.

Re: Hermantown arena

Is/are there plans for a new arena in Hermantown within the next 5-10 years ? Would the boys ever combine with Proctor like the girls? The girls in A so the boys could stay in A. Just curious...... They're in a tough spot as far as a new Arena. For all of the advantages open-enrollment brings to th...

Kniven, am I reading something between the lines with your post? Might you become a Hawks fan of sorts and could this be the move to get Hermantown to play big boy hockey? Would be awesome to see Esse stay in 7AA. It would be a shock if Pat Andrews isn't the new coach in Hermantown. Not sure what's...
