I think Tonka has been quite content to be ranked #1 at season's end, no matter what mid-season rankings looked like. They've had a target on their back for 3+ straight years. A bit odd that BSM started the year ranked #1, since it's normally an automatic rollover until the #1 team loses, but I don...

Tiger "A" hockey is a meaningless league of small meaningless schools with meaningless fans that is not recognized by "Big Shot AA" dudes like you!!!

Keep that nose in the air!!

Re: Warroad not going to State 2013-14??

Apparently Warroad may not make it to the State Tournament next season, unless they can defeat the Park Rapids Panthers, I guess we'll find out how Park Rapids stacks up to Warroad tonight. Park Rapids @ Warroad 7:00 What is next on the Warroad "to do list" after defeating Park Rapids to get back t...

Politics, emotions, and opinions aside, this is a dang good hockey team. They have speed and size. They were well prepared and well coached last night at Hopkins. Momentum shifted back and forth in what was a very close game. I would say from what I saw last night they might be the team to beat in ...

NOT Bill Murray. Bet you a hockey puck! sheesh... learn to do research. 8 second on google http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hfYJsQAhl0 AWESOME! I like Bill's slightly different version in the movie Stripes when they are having a chat session with the Sargent. It gets quoted on KFAN once in a while.

I never questioned starting an 8th grader. But based on the only roster I've seen (posted on this thread, above) just saw there were two older who it would seem had more varsity experience. Of course that does not equal better. If every parent of the girls on the AA roster would please respond to t...

Is AA starting an untested 8th grade goalie when they list 2 upperclasswomen in the position?
(Disclaimer-I don't know any of these goalies)
8th grader is only current registered goalie on MSHSL Roster.
As a matter of fact 7 of the 18 player roster to date are "untested" 8th graders..

Getting off topic a tad.....The issue at hand is how does a girl enrolled at Hastings on Saturday play with that Varsity team, then is at AA on Monday......I doubt she would leave her varsity starting position to play JV at AA. If she meets the criteria for the MSHSL transfer requirements she will ...

Nobody has an issue with the school or the kids who attend it. The issue is this school competing in the MSHSL. If you went off and competed with the prep schools out east and in Canada nobody would notice, let alone complain. You have no problem with school or girls yet you label them "UnderAchiev...

What happened to the killer teams White Bear Lake and Stillwater used to field? They've fallen off the map. Good to see Irondale give some love after their epic upset of Mounds View in sections last year. I can't imagine Mounds View will want to see them in sections again. Tonka is still #1 in my b...

Reading threads like this and those of a similar vein allow me to sleep better at night knowing that the politics at our school are relatively minor in comparison. Either that, or I'm further out of the loop than I thought! This is really not about politics but more about lack of knowledge. It is i...

Does it matter whether it was JV or V? Yes, if she played for Hastings on Saturday, and then changed schools and started playing for AA this week, she could play on the AA JV team (If they have one, I have no idea). If she is going to play "Varsity" at AA this season, then she would need to abide b...

My greatest hope is that Underachiever Academy recruits enough national and international talent that all of the MN girls whose parents have chosen for them to play there find themselves...

Re: Co-op changes/additions (2013-14)

One correction - Great River (a St Paul Charter School) is NOT co-oping with AA. The coop between GR and AA was dissolved although I don't know what that means for the TCA/AA part of it. GR and TCA last year were co-oped with the St Paul Blades. I'm reading into this but I'd bet there was an unders...

Northern Educate/Achiever Academy buys Vadnais Complex

If NE financing is secured and deal closes in 45 days look for NE enrollment to boom next year with a real home rink and a long term commitment by NE.
