I think private schools could participate in the MSHSL tournament as of 1975. I assume when this happened the privates were done but I dont know if they played for a while after or not. <br><br>There were a lot of great players who played in that tournament and for those schools. There were also a number of very good teams.<br><br>But, I think every one agrees that until slappy graduated, there was no way they'd let those crazy Catholics in. <p></p><i></i>

I am sure of that.<br><br>I was just trying to remember some of those teams and then went looking for info onthe internet and came up empty.<br><br>I know Duluth Cathedral had some very good teams and players.<br><br>And Crookston, I believe, had a team. Never very good as I remember. And then the city teams. <p></p><i></i>

Cathedral had some great teams which were written about in depth but obviously Elliott70 missed the boat on those as they fell off the end sooner or later over the years on this board, and I'm not about to spend all that time and energy on the subject only to see it deleted because of a few jerks as seems to be the case around here far too often for my taste!<br><br>Crookston Cathedral defeated the Sioux and was the only<br>high school hockey team in Mnnnesota to do so period!<br><br>Other than that, this place doesn't deserve to know any more about those teams anyway !<br><br>What happened to the Morinville thread?<br><br>I spent some good time defending the guy there and I come back to the board anf POOF it was gone ! <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :rolleyes --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... s/eyes.gif ALT=":rolleyes"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br><br>Later! <p></p><i></i>

Pvt. Schools

Post by Kodiak » Wed Mar 09, 2005 11:10 pm

All I know is that SPA and Hill were the big powerhouses back in the day. I think Hill left for the MSHSL in 75 (maybe 73 or 74), starting a mass exodous (Cretin, St. Thomas, Breck, Blake, etc...). SPA was the last one to join (76-77? Maybe?). I think they competed on a national level for that last year. I'll check this out a little later, because it's interesting and I'd like to know how it all worked when the Private schools were separated from the Public. <p></p><i></i>

SS-<br> When you played back in the day did the private schools get very big crowds since they were such good teams? I know Crookstein had a private school how could they manage to have a H.S and a Private and still compete in sports i mean they aren't very big and i can't imagine that in those years (50's,60's,70's) that kids were driving that far to just go to school and i also don't think many parents would let there kids stay with other families just for a sport would they? <p></p><i></i>

What was his nickname?<br><br>ss-<br> How could they even field two catholic teams did people come from all over or was it just the fact that every kid in the town played hockey? Could the private schools contend with the public schools or would it be a blow out eithier way?what caused it to change "Public playing Private??" Slappy if you post all of the information i can just make a file on my computer and keep it save on a disk so when anyone asks it won't be deleted if you would like or you could do that so you won't have to go through all the work again.<br>also why would the players just play privates schools and not go to a public school when at that time the MN state public tourny was that much better or publized shall i say.<br><br>p.s-is videoscout really not comming back or is it like 2yrs ago when he said he wasn't and next season he slowly showed back up <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :D --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... /happy.gif ALT=":D"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> ? <p></p><i></i>
