Ladue Hockey Club finds success on their way to the Wickenheiser Cup
Harper Buxner
Jack Adams (12) gathers the team for a pre-game speech during their game against Priory Dec. 2, 2023. The team is currently preparing for the semi-final match against Rockwood Summit Feb. 23. “I love the energy of our team, especially after our win over Clayton,” Colin Tilley (12) said.

Ladue hockey club shows out for an 18-2 season, their best performance since 2020. The season has been filled with a plentiful amount of triumphs. With a combined total of 97 regular season goals, the season has been nothing short of a success within both the season and the team. Ryan Wood (11) reflects on the regular season and how they bond as a team.

“We’ve really connected and shaped our way from the beginning of the season. We were kind of just trying to get to know each other, but I feel like we all really connected,” Wood said.

Even with the amount of wins, the team is quick to return to the drawing board. Jake Oberman (11), explains the team’s drive for continual improvement.

“After every game our coach always comes in our locker room and points out who did well, win or loss and what we did good in terms of as a team. But then after [the coaches] talk about what we could have worked on and done better,” Oberman said.

With team morale high and the statistics showing their success, the team continues to move towards the Wickenheiser.

“It’s hard to talk about losses when you’ve only had two and the wins speak for themselves,” Oberman said.

Although the season was a success, the end goal is still in sight. With the upcoming semi-final match Ladue’s hard work ethic is still tested by their own coaches.

“Our coach is making sure practice isn’t too light on us, we still have to be pushed because of the tough competition in our seed,” Adams said.
