Mark has created a plan of action for getting you guys pumped up & what he needs YOU to do is know ALL the names of the players on YOUR team.
So JV make sure you know the names of your fellow JV players and the same goes for you Varsity players.

Junior Varsity: 1 Senior, 2 Juniors, 3 Sophomores and 10 Freshmen


Players at Lake Zurich HS and Mundelein HS earn Varsity letters and are included in their high schools' yearbooks. We hope to develop a similar relationship with Wauconda HS too.

Great News for LZM Hockey. We Are Adding a W to Our Team Name!

 

On July 23rd we received word from AHAI's High School Committee that they approved our 2015-2016 Combined Request. In addition to the existing Lake Zurich-Mundelein combination we asked AHAI for approval to add our neighbor, Wauconda HS, to our organization.

LZMW will now have both a JV and a Varsity team starting this 2015-2016 season!  Our Varsity team will once again play in the North Central Conference Varsity Division and our JV team will play in the North Central Conference's Junior Varsity Division. There will be Seeding Rounds in both divisions and then a tiered Regular Season based on team strength.
We should all be excited about this news. It has long been our objective to grow to be an organization large enough to field a Varsity and a JV team. Welcome to our new Wauconda HS players and families! You will soon see that even though the players attend three different high schools; on the ice we are one team!

The Lake Zurich-Mundelein HS hockey team beat St. Patrick yesterday afternoon, 6-4 in the deciding Game 3 of its best-of-three championship series for the IHSHL North Central Platinum Division title. The team had opened with an exciting Game 1 victory on February 11th, 6-5 in OT, then dropped a nail-biting Game 2 on Sunday the 15th, 8-6, and closed out the series with a see-saw, Game 3 win yesterday. 


 

 

 

 

Metro North Central Platinum 2013-2014 Championship Runners-Up - LZM Junior Varsity


Things did not turn out as we hoped in our championship game on Sunday March 2nd. The LZM team lost its game with St. Patrick's Varsity and finished the season as the Runner-Up in the Metro North Central Conference - Platinum Division.


What a great season we had though. A dramatic reversal from last year's results. In conference the team's record was 17-9-7, and overall our team's record was 18-11-7.


We will miss the strong play of our lone Senior, our captain, Sam Morgan; but we are optimistic about what the future holds for our club.
