Re: Early Departures 2019-2020

Heard a rumor Clafton is not returning for Rapids. Any truth to it?

Re: 2019-20 Schedules

Heard Greenway's schedule will be brutal again. Haven't seen it yet but supposedly Minnetonka is on it and they'll play Hermantown twice. Last year's 12-13 record might be hard to reach this coming year. Any incoming transfers like last year to help keep up with Hermantown? No transfers at this poi...

Re: 7A - Thoughts

A news article on the combining of Virginia and Eveleth-Gilbert left me a a little confused. The article identified this a collaboration leading to a consolidation. This makes it sound as if consolidation is not going to happen and each school district continues to operate for the time being. So a c...

Re: 7A - Thoughts

The Greenway and Rapids school boards had a joint meeting this month. Discussion centered around identifying how the districts could collaborate on academics. It was clearly stated this was not for combining the school districts. At least for now.

Re: 7A - Thoughts

This will put tremendous pressure on the remaining high schools in the area (MIB, Mesabi East, Cherry, Northeast Range, Ely, North Woods, Chisholm) to keep their students and not lose them to open enrollment. This new school could really make it tough on the remaining small schools to maintain finan...

Re: 7A - Thoughts

IRMN, I agree with everything you say except for the role of education. Your equation should read quality education= quality students = quality athletics. How many players on the hockey team will play beyond high school? Extra-curriculars are very important but should not be the most important. All ...

Re: 7A - Thoughts

Don’t see this new school ever going AA. These are the weakest Rapids teams in years that they beat. Also Rapids has the history of being competitive most every year at AA. Both VMIB and Greenway will be underdogs to Rapids this year. This new team would rarely even get home ice in the first round. ...

Re: 7A - Thoughts

That makes them the largest Class A school in the Section. This will certainly make them a contender for the #2 seed every year. The downside is that you cut in half the number of kids that will be playing high school hockey. I also wonder how this will affect the youth hockey programs at each commu...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

What would be an interesting statistic is what percentage of a team’s roster is on free and reduced lunch. I know for Greenway’s full roster there is only one player (bench player) who might be on free/reduced lunch. This f/r lunch figure has a significant impact on the pool of kids that will/can go...

Re: Class A 2019-2020

Greenway will be taking a step back next year as they lose two key players, Lawson of course but Lanz is equally important. He has a very high hockey IQ and started the transition from defense to offense the majority of time. Miller is going to have to step up and carry the puck out of the zone sign...

That clinches it. If the High School League was against it, it was a good move to go to two classes.

The one class tournament would suck and it would have the same 8 teams every year. It would improve nothing.
Totally agree. It would kill interest in hockey for newer programs and small schools. That ship has set sail a long time ago.
