In response to the threat of Covid 19, the Governor has closed all schools in the state until further notice and AHAI has cancelled the State Tournament. This means the 2019/2020 hockey season is over. This is not how we thought our season would end but we fully support the Governor and AHAI's decisions and wish everyone good health throughout this trying time.
A fun night was had by all at the AHAI Girl's High School All-State game, held on February 10th. Congratulations to the following NTGH players who participated, shown below with Coach Lenny Munson:

The New Trier Girls Hockey team is proud to announce that defenseman Amy Griffin (#17) has committed to play NCAA Division III field hockey at Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont.
“I started playing travel field hockey for Windy City Field Hockey when I was 12. Since then, I have participated with them for the indoor and outdoor seasons. I took part in USA Field Hockey’s futures program as a U14 and U16. Mark Morgan and Katie Beach have both been incredible coaches and have supported me throughout my process. I had thought that I wanted a big school in a city, and I actually only visited Middlebury as an option without ever thinking I’d end up there. However, from the first time I played on their field, I fell in with the team and the campus. I can’t wait for to head to Vermont in the fall!”
