Nantucket Hockey

Hockey is in full swing at Nantucket High School! (open:continue reading and ) Click here for the 2016/17 schedule.

Hockey on the island started as a midget team program in 2003 with the efforts of the Hockey Boosters led by Jean Norton. In 2005 the team started to compete at the JV level.

Due to the fundraising efforts of Christine Hermansdorfer, Cindy Bopp, Muffin Kurash and many others, the first full Varsity schedule began in 2011.

In the Varsity’s first year, with their first head coach, Jack Moran, the team made it to the playoffs and had three home playoff games as a high seed in the South Sectional Brackets. They lost in the semifinals in a very close game.

Since then the team has made the playoffs three more times and they lost each game in the first round.

They have a strong returning group of Seniors with playoff experience and their goal is to win the Mayflower League and finish their season on the ice at the Boston Garden in March!

GOOD LUCK TO THEM THIS SEASON!
