The ice hockey clubs at George Mason High School and Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School begin their seasons Friday November 2 with simultaneous contests at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington. The GMHS team will take on Washington-Lee in a scrimmage beginning at 6:40pm, while the MEH team will open league play against the Arlington Admirals in 6:50pm game.
Each team will play in the Northern Virginia Scholastic Hockey League (NVSHL), the sanctioning body for club ice hockey in Northern Virginia. This is the third year for GMHS hockey and the second year for the MEH team.
George Mason will again partner with West Potomac High School this year to form a joint team in NVSHL. GMHS returns five juniors who founded the team two years ago – Adam Fendley, Hunter Olson, Connor Rhodes, Jack Stricker and Andrew Williamson. Two other juniors, Matt Lowrey and Ian Griffin, have joined the team since its founding. Moving up this year from the MEH team are freshmen Sam Allan, Marsden Davis, Ben Kravinsky, and Tyler Taylor. GMHS grads Dan Watkins and Matt Williamson are assistant coaches, and GMHS senior Taylor Arney, a former player, serves as Team Manager.
The Mary Ellen Henderson club has a core of players from MEH and adds other players from Fairfax County schools. Leading the team are MEH players Tom Ferrick, Ryan Henderson, Alex Kryazhev, Jack MacKinnon, Henry Middlebrook, Alec Reusch, and Ethan Rosenberger.
