New Trier Alumni Game: The 2017 New Trier Girls Alumni Game was held on December 23rd at the Wilmette Centennial Ice Rinks. More than 30 alumni participated and the event was fabulous! The group of alumni that came included girls whose high school playing careers spanned from the mid-2000’s to last year. Many of these young women went on to play NCAA Division 1, NCAA Division 3 and ACHA club hockey after high school.
They were joined on the ice by current New Trier Girls Hockey players and many family members and friends watched the game from the stands. It was a fun event that provided the players and their families the opportunity to reconnect with former teammates and meet other players of the great sport they all love.
