Each Illinois West team nominates their own All Stars who are then rostered to play in the Varsity All Star Game. The goalies are selected by the league. Goalies are chosen based on performance, year, games played and more. Coaches from the previous regular season’s Varsity winner and runner-up will coach the two teams. The 2020 Varsity All Star Game coaches are Coach Dombro from Waubonsie and Coach Mrofcza from Maine. A top skater from each team will be chosen by the opposing team’s coach and a single goalie from both teams will be chosen by the league as Stars of the Game.
Congratulations to the following players for being named to the 2019-2020 Varsity All Star rosters!
*Goalies will be announced in January*
Wheaton West Donates over $3000 in Presents to Ronald McDonald House of Winfield
Wheaton West Hockey Club partnered with the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) of Winfield again in 2019. The players presented the RMH with over $3,000 in presents from donations they received from family, friends, and neighbors. RMH officials stated that Wheaton West has donated over $6,000 in gifts over the past two years.
The gifts that the players bought will be available to families who use the RMH while their loved ones are being treated for brain cancer through Central DuPage Hospital. Donations for the RMH are accepted throughout the year. Families can also use the impressive kitchen to prepare dinners or desserts for families using the rooms at the RMH.
Illinois West is proud of the Wheaton West players as they brightened the holidays for many families that are going through difficult times in their lives.
