Congratulations to both St. Rita High School and Lincoln-Way. They will be representing Illinois at the 2015 Toyota/USA Hockey High School Varsity National Championship in St Louis, Missouri. This National event will be held at the Hardee’s Ice Plex in Chesterfield, Missouri Thursday, March 19 through Monday, March 23 with the crowning of a Pure Division Champion and a Combined Division Champion. Illinois’ Pure Division representative will be St. Rita where all players attend the same high school and Lincoln-Way will be our Combined Division challenger where players come from more than one high school.
2015 marks the sixth year of this event, and while Illinois has not been able to participate in all the National Championships due to timing conflicts, we have been extremely successful when able to compete. New Trier High School has twice been crowned a National Champion – 2010 and 2011 and Providence High School was Runner-Up in 2014.
Thirty-two teams are representing their state in either the Pure Division or the Combined Division with teams coming from New York to California.
