Walpole

Hey Walpole,
Have the tears stopped yet? You do realize you are 1-3-0 against the last 4 good teams you faced, right?

Thank you for reaching out to "Walpole" and the entire town regarding our feelings. Believe it or not, we are doing well and not shedding a tear. We may have a few fellow towns people who ran the marathon that might still be a bit soar, are you referring to them in your reference to being 1-3-0 against 4 good teams? I assume you mean the Kenyans, English, Spanish and Ethiopians? I think our native Walpolians will be just fine. I hope this message finds you well and away from a rink.

-duh

Re: Walpole

What's with the hard on regarding Walpole high school hockey? They are kids/ young men, they aren't playing T1EHL or Junior hockey paying 8-10k to play per year.

I think they are quite aware they won't get recruited for a Division 1 school out of Public or Catholic hockey. It's a group of kids who probably went to school together their whole lives and had a great run.

Why can't you people just accept not everyone is chasing Division 1 hockey. Some guys just want to play and have fun with their friends and in their town. To even make it to the Super 8 as a public school should be impressive enough.

What will really be funny is when the money you spent on prep or catholic education sends your son to the same exact college as the Walpole kids who paid $0. But hey you got to post facebook pictures of your son wearing the jersey so all your middle aged friends know you're the best parent ever and that your son is ELITE.

It's hockey, play and have fun. These kids had a great run. Let them be proud of themselves. I'm pretty sure if your son's team went on the tear Walpole did you would be boasting as well.

My son said the same thing about them. Says a couple were unbelievably arrogant when they destroyed my son's team. There were a lot of happy high school hockey players in the area when they lost.

Hee, hee, hee...how's your spring going Walpole?

Re: Walpole

Pretty good! Thanks for asking!

Re: Walpole

So how's the team looking for next year boys? Top D leaving for private, 2 top forwards leaving for club.....a few underclassmen coming in opting for full season club vs. high school....all because of crappy coaching....good luck...

Re: Walpole

Yikes.. that doesn't sound good. Is the coach that bad there? He must have done something right last season?

Also, What happened with the goalie from last season? He had a great season/playoffs. Hope he's still playing somewhere.

Most likely it has nothing to do with coaching. It's happening at all of the local high schools as the full season teams need kids and they are coming from somewhere. C.C. and D-I hockey is rapidly falling apart even in the last 2-3 years.

H.S. coaches need to get serious about moving kids along after H.S. playing days are over. Even if that means as sophomores or juniors let alone after they give the school 4 years. Why don't they get it?

Re: Walpole

talk to walpole parents. coach does literally nothing right. had one of talent due to a few kids returning from club teams they either got cut from or got tired of the travel.

no offensive or defensive system. totally wings it. they hung in their in the tourney but were completely outplayed in every game, even the one they won.

normally parents complain about everything. in walpole, they have a reason. terrible, terrible coach. rumor has it others leaving as well unless RD is replace. AE seems to be the backup, but he's just a blowhard. sells himself as a skills instructor and ex-junior coach. was a door opener.

going from hero to zero in one year defines the state of the program.
