The Anoka hockey Team had a Tairly successful season
under The fine coaching of Mr. Alley. AlThough They are
sTill relaTively unexperienced and had To compeTe in a
Tough league, They gave an excellenT display of Their
abiliTy and made consTanT improvemenT during The season.
A number of games ThaT were losT in The lasT few minuTes

vious experience. A new "pee-wee" hockey program has
been sTarTed in The Junior High and should have a marked
influence on nexT year's Team.
ThroughouT The season The boys played To The besT of
Their abiliTy and showed The high sTandards of sporTsman-
ship TradiTional in Anoka. They ended The year by shuTTing
ouT ST. Paul Park by 3-O.
