TAHS students enjoy girls' hockey program

Cassandra Carlson has been playing hockey at Marshall under a pairing agreement since she was an eighth grader. The Tracy Area High School junior views it as a great experience.

"I didn't like basketball and I was looking around for some type of competition," she observed. "I have had many good experiences and have met a lot of great people. Our hockey team is a pretty tightly knit group".

Kara Wichmann, a TAHS student from Balaton, has also taken advantage of the pairing agreement to play on the Marshall hockey team this season.

Cassandra plays a forward position on the team and is one of the leading scorers for the season.
