Goalie Carson Murison was drafted to the Jr. Brahmas where he will play along side fellow teammate, Kellen Ireland. In fact, Kellen and Carson are roommates in North Richland Hills, Texas.
After a record turnout, our tryouts are complete and we have fielded 7 teams for the Fall/Winter season:
Congrats to GSE and Tri-Valley alumni, Alexander Stoley, for committing to Concordia College in Minnesota! In addition to getting a great education, Alex will be playing NCAA-D3 hockey. After GSE, Alex went to the BCHL Prince George Spruce Kings with help of Prince George scout and GSE 18U coach, Michael Holmes. Last year, Alex played for the NAHL Jr. Brahmas where they won the 2017 NAHL Championship (pictured here). Congrats, Alex, and have fun!
Kellen Ireland is moving on to bigger pastures - namely, North Richland Hills, Texas to play with the Jr. Brahmas. It has not been determined whether he will play on their NAHL or NA3HL team. Congrats and good luck, Kellen!
Our own Donovan Garcia has been offered a spot on the Islanders Elite team with the USPHL! Islanders are located in North Andover, Mass. Congrats and good luck, Dono!
Deven Boldway has been invited to the WHL's Portland Winterhawks main camp. Good luck, Deven!
Our 18U AA Team made it all the way to the semi-finals at Nationals in Lansing, Michigan. That is the farthest GSE has advanced at Nationals. Congrats to the team, Head Coach Mike Holmes, Assistant Coaches Vinny Heumann and Chip Cormier.
Our 18U team won the State Championship, while our 14U North team was a finalist. The 18s travel to Lansing Michigan in a couple of weeks for Nationals.
We have three teams headed to the State Finals in Escondido on March 17th: 12U South, 14U North, and 18U.
At the end of the regular season, here is where our teams stand:
