Former Bronco Player Makes Team Illinois U15 Team!

By P. Lucas/R. Lehman 09/08/2017, 3:45pm CDT

Ryan Lehman, a freshman on the Barrington Broncos Varsity Hockey Team for the 2016-17 season, is very excited about playing with the TI U15 team this season, though he truly is going to miss playing hockey with his Barrington Broncos friends. He learned a lot about himself and about hockey last season with the Broncos. His new TI team is filled with very skilled and very fast skaters. Ryan is trying to fit in and keep up. He is off to a good start. He had a goal and an assist in his first two games in St. Louis over the Labor Day weekend, where his team split two games with the St. Louis Selects team. Ryan is hopeful that playing at this level will give him an opportunity to make a quality junior hockey team in the future. Best of luck Ryan!

Current and alumni Barrington Broncos players teamed up to play against the American Hearing Impaired Hockey Association (AHIHA) Varsity team on Friday, June 16th.  Barrington players included Anthony Pitti, Max Scodius, Alex Minnow, Jack Adams, Max Adams, Daniel Parisi, CJ Parisi, Ben Mazurek and Ryan Jackson.  Alumni included Kyle Krueger, Max Kunzmann, Gary Barbera, Nicholas Morch, Matt Spica, Geno Melone, and Anthony Iacullo. The teams played a spirited game with Barrington prevailing with a 7-6 victory over the AHIHA team after referees waived off an AHIHA goal.

Established in 1973, the American Hearing Impaired Hockey Association instills confidence and self-esteem in deaf and hard of hearingwhile building life skills through the game of hockey. Each summer AHIHA holds a week-long camp open to hearing impaired hockey players and those wishing to learn the game. This year's AHIHA Varsity team included 6 players from the World Deaf Ice Hockey Championship team as well as college and high school players from across the United States.
