It will be a rebuilding year this year for the Minot High girls hockey team. 19 players are out for first year head coach Weylin Walstrum's team but only 2 of those players return as starters. Add to that fact that the team graduated the state's top scorer in McKayla Sandvold and this year's team will need to turn to some of its younger players to step up.
Weylin Walstrum, Majettes Hockey Coach:Two of our starters are actually back now with the transfer leaving us and graduation we lost three of our top "D" and a lot of our scoring there so yeah we're gonna have, we're gonna have basically Jessie Kongelf who's are leader and captain coming back and then in net we have Sidney Swanson so we're gonna be a young team overall. I think we're gonna be hard working. We're gonna have to learn a lot about the game but hopefully if we're going 100 percent you know those mistakes will be a little easier on us.
Jessie Kongelf, Senior:We have a lot of young girls coming up this year but I'm excited, there's a lot of potential and so we're just gonna have to see what happens.
Alex Harrom, Senior:It'll be interesting to see how things turn out. I think that all the younger girls will really surprise everybody. They've been working their hearts out in practice so it'll be really good.
The Majettes travel to Williston this weekend for jamboree action and open their season next Tuesday hosting Mandan.
