Non-Wildcats on the Ice

40% of the Westminster hockey team does not go to school at Westminster. There were not enough players at Westminster to have a hockey team this season. Midstates, the organization that oversees Missouri high school hockey, allows kids from schools that do not have hockey teams or schools that have too many players for their team to join a pool. School’s with teams that need more players can pick people out of the pool so that they can have a large enough team.

“They contribute a lot to our team and if we didn’t have them we wouldn’t have a team this season” Quote from Logan about pool players


These players make up a major part of the team, and without them, there wouldn’t even be a team. These eight players are also all underclassmen and due to the rules about pool players they will continue to play for Westminster for the rest of their high school careers. For the next two of three seasons these players will be the core of the team as they gain experience and knowledge of the game.
