Re: The Gentry Academy Thread

Who plays hockey at Hill-Murray "for the education"? Who plays basketball at Hopkins "for the education"? Who transfers to IMG Academy in Florida to play football "for the education"? Obviously, many college admissions offices like the U of Minnesota and Wisconsin are fine with these situations, whi...

Re: The Gentry Academy Thread

A little outdated...I did a some research a couple weeks ago. On February 8th - 106 of the team's 153 points were from Minnesota kids. 6 out of the top 7 scorers are from MN. Many of the kids that appear to be from out of state have family connections to Minnesota. Gentry is what you can kids are a...

Re: The Gentry Academy Thread

The one thing Gentry does have going for it is that there isn't much competition from privates on the east side...yes I realize it's a charter school but lets be real...it's essentially an alternative to Hill and CDH for kids who want to play hockey. The west side of the metro is saturated with priv...

Re: The Gentry Academy Thread

State of Hawkey/Fatcat Some of your comments are outdated . And others relate to their AAA teams, not Mshsl teams I think Gentry has been a Mshsl high school now for 3 years or so , so they know the rules and penalties .( Haven’t they also now converted from private to public charter? Someone could...

Re: The Gentry Academy Thread

Gentry was created for one reason and one reason only...a place for two boys to home school and play tier 1 hockey. Anyone who claims its for academics is either lying or extremely dense.

Stewart could be a NTDP guy next year so enjoy him while you can.
As a sophomore?

I'll admit that I was skeptical with him but in his short time at BSM he has made me a believer.
Yes. NTDP is based on birth year not grade.
Oh yeah, slipped my mind.

Re: AA Rankings for 2/7/21

They weren't in the top 15 last week, so you recall incorrectly. :wink: Thanks. Season so short we may not get a real good PS2 version. My hunch is there is a big advantage in rankings for those teams that play a weaker schedule. I doubt Lakeville South would have the same record if they played the...

Not True!
I agree with this, any part of it that is true is dated by about 15 months.
I did a poor job of listening when my source was explaining it to me :)

My goodness 6AA is a meatgrinder. Add in Holy Angels, which isn't an easy out for an opposing team come playoff time. I'm going to predict whoever takes 6AA this season takes the state tourney....a team residing in 6AA has taken in 6 times since 2010...yeesh.

I am curious to see how Zach Hayes performs this year. He had a >90% save percentage while at Hopkins. Now he moves over to EP, where they have a solid top 4 D crew and 2 full returning forward lines \ I think Hayes is going to have a huge season, he put up good numbers backstopping subpar teams......

Yet 99.9% recovery.
Elevated tests, High PCR= more covid cases.
Testing since 10/1 has increased by 23% +/-....while confirmed cases are up 38% +/- over that same time frame. More testing doesn't necessarily mean more cases.
