18u AA 2021 TAHA State Champions

What a great season for Rookie North Stars Head Coach Terry Ruskowski.  We jokingly say "rookie" in his first season with the club, but the players on the 18u AA quickly learned from this Hockey Veteran Coach and Player.

A overall ranking of  6th in the Nation 18u Tier 2, 39 wins & 9 loses for the season is quite a feat & the job is not done yet.   The 18u AA season continues as they prepare for a trip to Wisconsin and a shot at a National Title.

Please cheer on our North Stars!
