Ice Hockey Comes To Holy Cross

by Eric Meany

When Emily Bauer wrote on her application to the Academy of the Holy Cross that she wanted to start an ice hockey team at the all-girls Catholic high school, she could hardly have known how soon her wish would come true.

Bauer, now a sophomore, first played alongside freshman Emily Kennedy with the Montgomery Youth Hockey Association, and this past summer their fathers pitched the idea of starting a team at Holy Cross to athletic director Jenna Ries.

Ries gave the men the go-ahead, and with very little time to get organized, they have put together a 14-member developmental squad that will play a schedule of games against girls teams from Holton-Arms, Bryn Mawr, St. Timothy’s and Archbishop Spalding through February. If all goes well this season, ice hockey will become a full-fledged varsity sport at Holy Cross for the 2012-2013 school year.
