New Richmond hockey players honored for academic work
The New Richmond Youth Hockey Association each year honors academic excellence through its annual SKATE (Skaters Keep Achieving Through Education) program.
This year's SKATE banquet, which was held in conjunction with the end of the year association banquet, was held on March 29 at the New Richmond High School Commons.
This is the sixth year the SKATE program has been held in New Richmond to promote the importance of student work in the classroom.
This year there were 92 participants who qualified for the honor, another impressive year in the classroom for NRYHA hockey players. To be recognized, students needed to maintain a minimum of a 3.0 grade point average.
The program each year gives special recognition to students with grade point averages of 4.0 or higher. This year's group included: Chris Lubow, Catcher Langeness, Lauren Gruber, Madisyn Fiebiger and Alexandra Johnson.
The highest grade point average among the boys in the program was Catcher Langeness and the highest grade point average among the girls was Lauren Gruber.
