Varsity Ice Hockey
I have been coaching ice hockey for over 30 years, eight of those years here at GA, and the one thing that separates coaching at GA from all the rest are the student-athletes at GA."

Although the winter sports are finished, it is time to recognize the student-athletes who performed at a high level during the season.
Germantown Academy's ice hockey team found themselves in familiar territory on Thursday. The team had navigated the regular season and earned a spot in the Independence Hockey League for the third consecutive year. Unlike the previous two years, the Patriots were able to come out on top, defeating The Pennington School, 6-1.
If Germantown Academy wants to win the Inter-Ac League Title, Andrew Miao '18 will be a large part of it. Miao's eight goals rank fourth on the team, but his game does not end there.
Based off of their last matchup with the Episcopal Academy, Germantown Academy Head Coach John Fields knew that Tuesday's contest against the Churchmen would be a physical one. Instead of responding to EA's hits with some of their own, the Patriots pummeled the back of the net en route to a 4-0 victory.
It has been a rough week for Germantown Academy's ice hockey team, but by looking at their record, you would not be able to tell. The Patriots played three games this week --and won all three -- capped off by the 5-3 win against Academy of the New Church on Jan. 25.
