Salisbury has become accustomed to winning prep school championships. The Crimson Knights have won seven Elite 8 titles since 2006.
This year’s championship team was different and had to battle a lot more adversity en route to being the team to skate off the ice with a trophy in the final game of the prep school hockey season.
Salisbury started off 5-4, sending shock waves across the prep school hockey landscape. The team was limping into the Christmas break after a tough loss to Kimball Union in the consolation game of the Flood-Marr Tournament.
“In some ways it helped that we had a slow start. We came back from the break committed to taking it one game at a time. We had that mindset,” said longtime head coach Andrew Will.
