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!”
Effectively immediately by Presidential Directive, USA Hockey has increased the penalty for making a Racial/Derogatory Slur from a Game Misconduct to a Match Penalty. Click on the link below for details.

Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation was founded in 1992 in memory of eight-year-old Barret “Bear” Krupa who died after a five and a half year battle with Wilms Tumor, a pediatric cancer. The mission of Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation is to eliminate pediatric cancer and to provide hope and support to those who are touched by it. The funds collected by the New Trier hockey players will go to Bear Necessities’ Bear Hugs Program which supports cancer patients (ages 0-19) as well as their immediate families as they face the many challenges that accompany the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric cancer. A Bear Hug is a customized experience that brightens the life of a child going through cancer and helps him or her feel like a kid.
A Drop in the Bucket Makes a Bear Hug Come True
