Varsity Girls' in the Watkins Tournament Championship Game

Congratulations to our Varsity Girls' team on their placement in the Championship Game of the Edward G. Watkins '56 Girls' Invitational Hockey Tournament!

In what was a testament to both teams’ character, desire, and work ethic in the offseason, this was the exact matchup that took place last year in the tournament, battling for 7th and 8th place. What an improvement Cushing has seen already this year! 

Despite an offensive onslaught after falling behind 1-0, we were unable to score and the game remained in Deerfield’s favor. Though we were disappointed in the final result of the tournament, our Varsity Girls' should be proud that in each game they continued to play their hardest, regardless of the scoreboard.
