Adaptive Floor Hockey making fourth consecutive state appearance

The Owatonna Adaptive Floor Hockey team is on its way to yet another state tournament. The Huskies managed to finish their regular season with of record of 9-3 after taking third place in the 2016 state tournament. This season the Huskies was forced to face adversity with style and chemistry between players. Coach John Scheil explained, “Replacing teammates from the previous year is tough and we did so by having players like Zach Sencer and Sam Gefre step up their game.” The slow start and mix up of players allowed the team to settle in and gear up for the remainder of their season.

The Huskies continued their run into the playoffs where they defeated their northern opponents 9-2. With that victory they moved on to the state tournament. Coach John Scheil said, “My expectations for this state tournament is the same as it was last year. Even though this team has a different style, I believe that we can win any game and place again.” The Owatonna Adaptive Floor Hockey team has made tremendous strides over the past couple years and is continuing to amaze all that watch them. The Huskies had a pep fest commemorating their state send off on Wednesday, March 15. The first state game will be against Maple Grove on Friday, March 17 at 6:30 pm at Bloomington Jefferson High School.
