New to this year’s winter sports is the girl’s hockey team. Although the team is only considered a club, the girls are still able to compete against other schools. The team is coached by Lauren Wiggins and Scott Valentine and led by captains Liza Wood (junior), Chandlar Fowler (freshman), and Tori Redding (senior). The squad consists of 16 girls who practice once every week for one hour at either the Ralph Walker rink in New Haven or at the West Haven rink. Katherine Alden, a junior that plays defense, says that “Practices can be really tiring but at the same time, they’re fun. Right now we’re getting down the basics of hockey, like dribbling the puck, passing, and shooting.” Their record so far is 2-2-1 with a recent big win over West Haven with a final score of 4-1
