2018-19 Roster News

September 19, 2018 — Below is the USA Hockey Roster for the Bloomington Blades league team for the 2018-19 season. This roster reflects all players that will be eligible to play for the “Blue” team throughout the course of the season. Being on this list does not mean that you will be eligible for the state tournament as the roster must be reduced to 21 total by December 31 and players must meet the minimum criteria of 50% league games and 6 crossovers. Not all of the players on this list will dress for blue team games. This will remain a fluid roster for some time as players prove themselves on and off the ice and in the classroom. The roster was developed through thorough evaluation by coaching staff and impartial observers over the weekend. I will discuss this in more detail on Friday at the team event but this should serve as a motivator for many players to either gain or MAINTAIN a spot on the 21 player roster in December.

I applaud the efforts of our Board to maintain the number of players we have in our program. Players not on the final roster will have every opportunity to develop over the course of the season as I coach all players, not just the blue team. The groundwork laid this year will benefit the program for years to come.

Blades Win State Academic Honors

February 23, 2018 — For the first time in program history, the Bloomington Blades have won the Henry G. Schallert Team Academic Award from the Indiana State High School Hockey Association.

Given annually since 2003 to the team with the highest cumulative grade point average, the Henry G. Schallert Team Academic Award is named in honor of the father of Nate Schallert, one of the ISHSHA’s longest serving volunteers. The senior Mr. Schallert was an educator his entire life.

The team collectively achieved a 3.51 GPA, with two-thirds of the team earning a 3.6 or higher. Special recognition goes to Sophomore Ian Knox who leads the team with a GPA of 4.19, and Senior Sam Burris who will graduate with a GPA above 4.0.

The Blades will receive recognition in the official program of the state tournament. A plaque will be given to the captains before our second game of the tournament, 10:30am Saturday, March 3 on the Charles W. “Lefty” Smith Jr. rink at the University of Notre Dame.
