North Shore Storm

Head coach: Zach Vieau, sixth season

2021-22 record: 7-19

Conference: Independent

Section: 7A

Key departures: F/D Livia Hoff (9-15—24), now at Concordia-Moorhead

Key returners: Sr. F Hope Ernest (12-10—24), Jr. F Katie Carpenter (4-14—18), Jr. D Lily Benvie (5-12—17)

Newcomer to watch: eighth-grade center Reese Costley

Outlook: “Knock on wood, we should have our most successful season in years,” Vieau said. “We have a large amount of young new talent that will contribute to our team as well as a ton of returning players who have a few years of varsity under their belts along with a strong junior in net.”

Vieau is expecting goalie Harper Powell, forward Hope Ernest, defensemen Lily Benvie and forward Berkley Hoff to be among the area’s better players this season.
