Bison hockey returns with experience


Tara Holmgren, a junior at Maple Lake, is a center on the Bison hockey junior varsity team this season.

 

The Bison girls hockey team returns to the ice with a lot of experience and a lot of expectation.
Maple Lake junior Tara Holmgren is a center for the Bison’s junior varsity team and is playing well, according to Head Varsity Coach Ray Dahlof. Bison hockey is made up of players from Buffalo, Delano, Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted and Maple Lake.
The Bison lost only two players to graduation last year, including Maple Lake defender Paige Blizil. Blizil and fellow graduate Lindsay Roethke of Buffalo, who was also the leading scorer for the Bison, were instrumental in helping last year’s team to a 14-13-1 finish and a Mississippi 8 Conference championship.
