Congratulations to the MBS girls ice hockey team and Head Coach Bruce Driver for being named the Team of the Year and the Coach of the Year by NJ.com.
The Morristown-Beard School girls ice hockey team made history on Thursday night, March 5th at the Prudential Center in Newark, capturing the inaugural Girls Ice Hockey State Championship with a 3-0 win over Summit. In addition to capturing the inaugural New Jersey Girls Ice Hockey State Championship, the Crimson won their fourth consecutive Prep Championship this season.
MBS (18-8-1) finished the year with a perfect 14-0 record against in-state opponents. In those games, the Crimson allowed only 12 goals. This year's MBS girls ice hockey team had multiple All-State selections including Anna Bajak (First Team), Leah Stecker (First Team), Kaitlin Skorzewski (Second Team), and Sasha Berniker (Second Team).
Head Coach Bruce Driver, a 15-year NHL star with the Devils and Rangers, reached a personal milestone of 300 career wins at Morristown-Beard School, and his success came with a team comprised of young, talented players. Six key roster spots this year were occupied by underclassmen. Driver has served as head coach since the team played its inaugural season 20 years ago.
