Dear Followers of Prep Hockey, It is with great pleasure that I welcome Prep Hockey into its 22nd season. The longevity of the program itself speaks to the overall achievements that have been accomplished on the ice. Over the years, Prep Hockey has competed at the highest level in the Washington-Baltimore region and has had many successes. The excitement of the on-ice experience has become infectious among Prep students and faculty, as anyone attending a Prep-Landon or Prep-Gonzaga game would attest. This spirit of friendly competition is a part of the whole Prep experience, as our hockey program continues to exemplify fair play and hard work on the ice. Of course, Georgetown Prep remains focused on developing our students into men of competence, conscience, courage, and compassion, qualities that translate directly into our athletic program as well. On the playing field, our Prep students learn about being “men for others� through teamwork, discipline, and effort. This experience contributes to the growth of our students both morally and ethically. I enthusiastically look forward to the 2012-2013 season. There are many exciting games ahead, and each game will have its memorable moments. Please join me in supporting and praying for an exciting, fun and successful season of Prep Hockey. Go Hoyas! Rev. Michael Marco, S.J.


GEORGETOWN PREP HOCKEY HISTORY – 1990 TO PRESENT By Dave Chadwick

Introduction Georgetown Prep hockey traces its roots back to 1990, with profound appreciation for the minds and actions of several individuals that can only be appropriately termed as visionaries. These visionaries placed their hopes and dreams for the nascent program into the hands of a number of accomplished leaders that coached, managed, and usheredin Prep hockey at its origin, and then nurtured the program’s growth to prosperity throughout the years. This summary of Prep hockey’s rich and storied history is a snapshot of the whole story. It is by design incomplete, but it is hoped that the history provided herein will help bring back the inspiring memories of those games, practices, rushes up ice, slapshots, thunderous checks, face-offs, game-winning goals, and team camaraderie that is Prep hockey. Prep hockey would like to offer many thanks to the individuals that contributed to this rendering, especially the four outstanding varsity head coaches of the program: Kyran Kennedy, Kevin Charles, Brian Maloney, and Sean O’Leary. In addition, our thanks are extended to numerous former players and assistant coaches that contributed as well, among them: Phil O’Donoghue Sr., Tony Gray, JP Hyland, Rory Hyland, Paul McGonagle, Bill Slater, CJ Kemp, Joey Kemp, and Pat Winter. Last, it would have been impossible to create and sustain a viable hockey program without the continuous support and assistance of Georgetown Prep Athletic Director Dan Paro, and former Georgetown Prep President, Rev. William George, S.J., who remains one of the Prep Hockey’s greatest fans and supporters.

The Prep hockey history below is organized chronologically by coaching tenure. Each coach has made a significant and progressive mark on the Prep hockey program, and successive coaches have built further upon the foundation that they received from their predecessors. Clearly, the players and coaches of today have benefited greatly from those coaches and players that preceded them. The result of these efforts continues to be a highly competitive Prep hockey program that consistently enjoys success on and off the ice. Enjoy the walk down memory lane!

The Early Years (1990-1996) Kyran Kennedy, who was employed at the time in the Prep Development Office, was Prep’s first-ever varsity coach and helped found the Prep hockey Rick Robinson program. In 1989, Prep students John Connell, Joe McCormick, and Steve Redonovic approached School Counselor Rick Robinson and Kyran Kennedy about forming a hockey program. Kyran and Rick set about to lay the groundwork to develop the program, resulting in the first practice taking place on November, 13, 1990 at 6:15 am in the Wheaton Outdoor rink. This marked the beginning of Prep hockey. It was still the early days, and back then parents were permitted to drive students to the rink. One invaluable parent that donated considerable time to performing the shuttle van duty was Bob Dunn, who deserves gratitude

www.gprephockey.org PREP HOCKEY SPIRIT - 4


GEORGETOWN PREP HOCKEY HISTORY – 1990 TO PRESENT for his dedication to Prep hockey during these formative years. (It should be noted here that Rick Robinson continues to contribute—helping out with the VII team) At the time of Prep hockey’s formation, there were only a handful of high school hockey teams in the area, and Prep played each team 2 times per season. In the program’s second year there were 11-12 teams total, comprising a mixture of private and public schools. Prep played these teams, which included Baltimore high school teams: Gilman, Calvert Hall, Centennial, and Mount St. Joseph. Locally, Prep also competed against DeMatha and Good Counsel. In the early years, about 14 players would typically attend team tryouts. Among this hearty lot, only a few players had hockey experience or had developed skating skills. Opposition teams tended to be really strong, or in developmental mode. As an example, one season DeMatha had 3 different teams and Prep had one team. At one point Churchill had some skilled juniors on their team and could dominate. But when Prep would play Good Counsel or Gonzaga, games were generally competitive. Of note is that Prep participated in Gonzaga’s inaugural Purple Puck tournament, and has participated in the Purple Puck tournament every year since. Prep’s initial rival was probably Good Counsel as the games between the two schools were competitive. In addition, Landon didn’t ice a team until the 1992-1993 season and at the time there was no hockey division in the Interstate Athletic Conference (IAC). Games were played at Cabin John and the Wheaton Outdoor rinks. The first Prep jersey was a simple blue mesh design with a grey GP logo and plain

numbers on the back. In the third season, Prep outfitted its players with home and away jerseys and went to a higher quality jersey with a raised crest. The Maryland Scholastic Hockey League (MSHL) began play in the 1989-90 season, with Prep joining the league in its second year. Pete Plamondon, Sr. was a major sponsor to the nascent program, providing seed money to keep the program on the ice. At the time, Georgetown Prep did not consider Prep hockey “varsity”, but rather “club” status. Varsity status came two years later for the 1992-1993 season. Prep did not win a game during the first two years when they were a club program. In Prep’s first season, John Kelly was among the initial players in the program that had previously played organized hockey prior to donning the Prep blue and gray. During the 1992-1993 season, Prep’s first year of varsity status, team Captain Tom Murphy was a strong leader and set the example for the team with his work ethic. During this season the now out-of-print Montgomery Journal ran a major story on Prep hockey, writing about the program and highlighting the Saturday office practices in the lower gym of the old field house. During this third season, Prep won its first-ever hockey game on December 11, 1992, beating Mount St. Joseph’s “white” team 7-5. Also in this third season, Prep played a game in the outdoor rink at College Park, and for the first time on record, actually attracted a large Prep following. In 1993-1994 the Montgomery Scholastic Hockey League (MSHL) was divided into northern and southern conferences as the league expanded. Prep won its second game during this season, finishing with a 1-8 overall MSHL record. This year saw Gonzaga initiate

GEORGETOWN PREP HOCKEY HISTORY – 1990 TO PRESENT the Purple Puck tournament with Prep taking part. In fact, Prep has participated in this tournament every year since, and continues to do so. In 1994-1995 Scott Bergson was selected as MSHL second team southern conference All- Star, becoming the first Prep player to receive such an honor. At this point, the MSHL had expanded yet again, to 27 teams. Prep finished 2-1 at the Purple Puck during this season, and finished 1-9 in the MSHL. Prep formed its first junior varsity team this season, showing that hockey had attracted a following among students in the yard. During the 1995-1996 season, Joe McCormick, a former Captain of the Prep team, returned to help coach the team. Prep won a preseason tournament this season, and finished December of the year with a 4-1 record, marking the best-ever start for the team. Prep hockey finished close to .500 by the end of the season, its best-ever finish and setting the stage for continuing growth and success in the program. Assistant coaches during this timeframe were Bill Donovan, Joe McCormick, and Bill Slater.

The Golden Years (1996-2001) Kevin Charles assumed the head coach responsibilities as Prep hockey continued to evolve. The team practiced at Wheaton Outdoor. Now closed, the Wheaton Outdoor rink was truly that, it was “outside”. It had a roof but no walls. Wind would sail in the sides along with leaves and other particulate matter. Interestingly, Prep hockey practiced at Wheaton on and off until 2008. The outside practice was typically at 6 am during 1995-97, so it is not hard to imagine the freezing cold temperatures that teams endured to play Prep hockey. In fact, with the early morning freezing temperatures, it was quite commonplace for

players to have their jerseys freeze stiff during practice. However, the players were warmed by their dedication and love of the game. By 1998, Prep began practicing at the Rockville rink, which was not only inside, but which also offered practice times in the late afternoon after school (vice at 6 am)! In the late 1990s, the team took an annual trip to play the Lawrenceville School. During one of the trips, the boys watched the famous hockey movie Slap Shot. At the time, none of the boys had ever seen the movie. The bus rolled with laughter all the way back to Prep. Interestingly, in November 2011 the team also viewed Slap Shot on the bus enroute home from the January game trip to Philadelphia and Delaware. Also during this era (circa ‘99-2000) the team had a few practices on the frozen C&O canal at Macarthur and Brickyard in Potomac, wearing full pads and with the goalies in portable lacrosse nets. This was unreal fun for coaches and players alike in the typically mild winter Mid-Atlantic region. Prep has always been known for its school spirit and pride, often demonstrated by the throngs of students who come out to cheer on Prep athletics. During Coach Charles’ first season, the team captain, Al Fleury, was struck by how empty the prep stands were during hockey games. A typical fan contingent only involved dedicated parents of the players. While interscholastic hockey was in its early days, Landon, DeMatha Good Counsel and others almost always had a student section cheering on their hockey teams. Al then wrote an opinion piece for the Prep student paper about how empty the stands were at hockey games and how the hockey team could really use some of the famous Prep pride. At the next game, not only did the Prep boosters and

www.gprephockey.org PREP HOCKEY SPIRIT - 6


GEORGETOWN PREP HOCKEY HISTORY – 1990 TO PRESENT students show up in force with faces painted, but the stands were filled with support; even parents with no sons on the team came out to see the Hoya’s take the ice. One particular memory from this era shared by Patrick Winter was the game against DeMatha during either his junior or senior year (1996-1997 or 1997-1998). Although Prep lost the game by a score of 6-4, the score was even at 3-3 going into the third period. In the previous three seasons, DeMatha’s average margin of victory over Prep was in the neighborhood of 10 goals. In this context, losing 6-4 was a moral victory for Prep. The year is uncertain, but sometime during this era; Scott Smith selected home and away Prep hockey jerseys from the Hockey Stop. In 1995, Prep played in the Thanksgiving tournament at Frederick and made it to the finals at Wheaton Regional tournament. In 1996 Coach Charles had his entire hockey bag and equipment stolen while at a Christmas party on Capitol Hill. The team all chipped in $30 each and Kevin received all new equipment from his players. During the 1998-99 season in a game believed to be against South River, where one of the most unbelievable finishes ever witnessed in Prep hockey took place. The team was down at least one goal with 2 minutes to go, yet managed a hard-charging “miracle” comeback to win by one goal. In between, there were six goals scored between Prep and South River, with Prep netting 4 of these tallies. CJ Kemp scored the exciting game-winner off of a faceoff at center ice with only 8 seconds remaining in the contest. CJ took the faceoff, gathered the puck, skated down, and dramatically stuffed it past the goalie as the horn sounded.

www.gprephockey.org PREP HOCKEY SPIRIT - 7

Also during 1997, one memory shared by Joe Fleury demonstrated the dedication and dangers of Prep hockey. Joe was a very accomplished goalie, having spent 7 years as a goalie on Montgomery County travel teams. But during this period in Prep hockey, players often had to lend a hand where they were needed. Patrick Winter was doing a great job tending the net, and so Joe volunteered to play defense for the Hoyas. During a game against Good Counsel, Joe took a particularly brutal hit, and landed hard on the ice. He skated off and while on the bench told Coach Charles he thought that he may have hurt his wrist. In typical fashion, Coach Charles told Joe to shake it off and that he was needed on the ice. Joe then removed his glove to reveal his wrist bones pushing through the skin at a sickening angle. With one glance, Coach Charles opened the door to the boards stepped on the ice during play and started shouting, “Broken Arm, Broken Arm, Stop Play!!” Coach Charles then walked Joe across the ice and helped get him sent off to the hospital, before returning to coach the rest of the game. During this era, another notable accomplishment illustrating Prep’s growing success on the ice is that the program was moved up from the Tier II MSHL division to the (top) Tier I MSHL division for the 1999-2000 season. Prep did not miss a stop with this move, continuing to grow and thriving in the enhanced competition in the Tier I division. In 2000, Prep achieved a memorable feat by beating number one ranked Churchill with team Captain Scott Lee scoring a natural hat trick during the game. During the same game, Joey Kemp received the ire of the Churchill fans for wearing yellow gloves. Joey Greeves starred in net for Prep in this 5-4 thriller, and

GEORGETOWN PREP HOCKEY HISTORY – 1990 TO PRESENT enjoyed it even more due to his close friend being a Churchill player. John Tobacco was a formidable goalie during his time during this era. In 2000 Prep lost to Archbishop Spalding in the quarter- finals of the Maryland State tournament. Prep had the game tied near the end, but late goals by a strong Spalding team sealed Prep’s fate. In the same year (2000) Prep moved John Pasquarillo to forward from defense after losing to a better Wootton team early in the season. The move worked; late in the season Prep beat Wootton in a thrilling 9-8 contest. Other notable players include Scott Lee (’01) who was Captain of the 2000-2001 team, and one of the era’s finest players, as well as Mike Egan (’99), another skilled player, who in 2010, became the first player ever to win the Scott Smith Memorial Alumni Award. In Coach Charles’ last year (2000), Prep beat Oakton and pummeled Bishop O’Connell in the Purple Puck semi-finals, but was defeated by Gonzaga in finals. The Finalist trophy was presented to Prep by Peter Bondra of the Washington Capitals. Prep was ranked no. 4 in Maryland at the end of the 2000-2001 season. Standout players during this time period included the Hyland brothers: Rory and JP, Brian Boland, Will Booher, Drew Saelens, Alex Roe, Trevor Casey, Zach Fulton (described by teammates and foes alike as one of the hardest hitters ever), CJ Kemp, Phil O’Donoghue, Jr., John Pasquarillo, Joe Greeves in goal, John Tobacco and Pat Winter in goal, Shawn Markely, Justin and Kyle Keller and others too numerous to mention. In fact, CJ Kemp became Prep’s very first Washington Post All-Met selection in 1997-98, and repeated again in the 19981999 season. Assistant coaches during

this timeframe were Chris Skinner, Paul McGonagle, Chris Winter, Tony Gray, and Brian Maloney. A teammate of Justin Keller described him as “possibly the most solid, complete player we had. He played a good amount of forward before moving to D, and he just never made a mistake. If we hadn’t been so young/bad his senior year, he certainly would have received his due in the Washington Post All-Met team (he was selected as honorable mention).” SPOTLIGHT: Rory Highland During his four seasons 1996-1997 through 1999-2000, it is worthy of note that Rory Hyland led the team in scoring as a freshman, sophomore and junior. He was perhaps Prep’s greatest player of the Golden Years era: fast, agile, and highly skilled, he could steal a puck with a poke check better than anyone, and then in a flash, bury the puck into the opponent’s net.

Growth and Prominence Years (2001-2007) Brian Maloney became Prep’s third varsity head coach, taking over from Kevin Charles. 2001-2002 Season: This was the first year that hockey was an official IAC sport, and it marked the first-ever winning season for Prep hockey. At the time, there was no IAC tournament as there is today. Rather, the IAC championship was solely based upon won-lost record vs. other teams. The Landon game took place later in the season and was considered by many to be the de facto “championship”. SPOTLIGHT: AJ Minite

www.gprephockey.org PREP HOCKEY SPIRIT - 8


GEORGETOWN PREP HOCKEY HISTORY – 1990 TO PRESENT AJ transferred in from Bullis, beginning at Prep as a sophomore. From 2001-02 to 200304, he was the starting goalie for his three years as a Hoyer icer. Even with numerous outstanding performances over the years, AJ’s game against Mt. St. Joe’s in the league semifinals (a 4-3 Prep loss) in 2003 was beyond description. Keen observers of this tilt have reported that AJ stood on his head, keeping Prep in the game on his own, making save after impossible save. AJ’s performance is even more impressive considering that Prep was missing two players off of its top line (including star Trevor Casey) and still nearly won the game. This year, Prep defeated Landon during the season by a score of 4-1, beginning the growth and prominence era of Prep hockey, built upon the foundation of the previous years. In the Purple Puck tournament, Prep beat Landon in the first round for the first time in tournament history by a score of 2-1. The night before the championship game, Prep played St. Albans at 10 pm without the ailing Rory Hyland. Prep lost in the tournament final with stars Kyle Keller injured and Rory Hyland playing with a 101 plus degree fever. Prep went down 4-0, but scored its first goal. Then, Phil O’Donoghue Jr. grabbed a Landon pass at the top of the Prep zone and took on Landon brothers Peter and Dave Evans in a 1 on 2 to score a short-handed goal and cutting the score to 4-2. More hard work and determination resulted in Prep narrowing Landon’s lead to only 4-3 with a minute to play. Coach Maloney pulled the Prep netminder, and Prep launched repeated volleys at the Landon goal. One puck bounced straight back off of a Prep shot from the point, falling onto the stick of a lucky Landon skater who scored an empty netter to ice the Landon win. Still, at

www.gprephockey.org PREP HOCKEY SPIRIT - 9

was apparent that the powers had shifted in the rivalry, and many players from this team considered that this was possibly the best game that they had ever played. After the Purple Puck tournament, Prep faced Landon in the game that decided the IAC championship in February at the Rockville rink. This was the first game of record where nearly all of the Prep students and numerous hockey alumni and their parents and families attended. The stands were packed, and deafening, beginning a spectacle that would become common thereafter at all Prep-Landon hockey contests. 2011 Scott Smith Award Recipient for Outstanding Contributions to Prep Hockey Phil O’Donoghue, Sr. recalls it best: “There was a psychological move before the start of the game set the tone. Landon’s team consisted mainly of lacrosse players (indeed their 2002 lacrosse team was Landon’s best ever and top-ranked in the nation), and Landon even wore lacrosse gloves when playing hockey. After the pregame warm-up, Prep pointed out this “equipment violation” to the referees who sent the Landon players to the dressing room to change gloves. Whether this move had any effect or not, Prep completely dominated the game, winning 4-1, giving up only a meaningless goal at the end. At least one frustrated Landon player was ejected from the game. After years of being pounded by Landon, this seminal victory made Prep the undisputed IAC champs and represented Prep’s first IAC hockey championship, ranking among the most important accomplishments in the

The game also marked the first time that the student body embraced Prep hockey as a terrific sport to support.” Spotlight: Nikita Kashirsky Nikita is a native Russian from Moscow, and his coming to Prep was as a result of Nikita’s brother Egor emailing then head Coach Kevin Charles. Upon receipt of the email, Kevin thought it was someone’s attempt at humor, but he soon determined that the request was for real. Nikita’s plan was to develop his hockey skills through the Washington Little Caps, but his brother insisted that Nikita really wanted to attend Prep. Soon thereafter, Prep received video and written testimonials of Nikita’s hockey skill from Russian coaches of the famous Moscow-Dynamo program. The video spoke for itself, and Nikita ultimately came to Prep, playing for Brian Maloney’s teams. Playing in just two seasons with the Hoyas, Nikita’s speed and skill resulted in his scoring an amazing 55 goals along with 30 assists, for an incredible two-year run of 85 total points. Nikita is Prep’s first hockey player to turn professional, joining the ECHL South Carolina Stingrays after attending Norwich University. [Note: As this edition of the hockey program went to print, Nikita was currently listed in hockeydb.com as playing for Moscow Spartak of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL), widely regarded by hockey observers as the world’s second-best professional league.] In the MSHL playoffs Prep lost 6-5 to St. Mary’s in the quarterfinals. Prep finished ranked third in Maryland in 2001-02 behind DeMatha and Mt. St. Joe’s. Phil O’Donoghue, Jr. was selected as second team All-met, and Brian Boland was selected as honorable mention AllMet. Record: 13-5

2002-2003: Prep made it to the Purple Puck final again for the second straight year, this time defeating Gonzaga 4-3 in OT for the first Purple Puck championship in Prep history. Trevor Casey (team captain) scored the gamewinning goal. After beating Landon 3-2 earlier in the season, Prep lost to the Bears in the de facto IAC championship game, 8-2. In the MSHL playoffs, Prep defeated Gonzaga 2-0 in the quarterfinals. In MSHL semi-finals, Prep was defeated by Mount St. Joseph, 4-1. Kyle Keller was the first player to be named first team All-met for the Hoyas. Nikita Kashirsky was named to the second team All-met, and Trevor Casey was given honorable mention. Also on this team were Joey Kemp, Matt Smith, and Jimmy Greeves. Record: 16-4-1 Spotlight: Matt Egan Matt was perhaps the largest-ever Prep player, checking in at about 6 foot 6 inches tall and weighing over 200 pounds. Although he was a large man, Matt was also a terrific skater and a skilled stick-handler. Matt’s size and skill could not be ignored by Prep opponents, as he provided a respected physical presence on the ice along with an impressive scoring capability. 2003-2004: Prep advanced to the Purple Puck semi-finals, losing to Langley 3-2. In the MSHL, Prep was selected as one of 16 teams for the playoffs. In the first game, Prep defeated Bishop O’Connell in an exciting shootout, by a 2-1 score. In the quarterfinals, Prep was defeated 5-3 by Mount St. Joseph’s. Nikita Kashirsky was named first team Allmet, and captain Joey Kemp was given honorable mention. Record: 12-7-2. 2004-2005: This season Prep returned to the Purple Puck semi-finals before losing to

Gonzaga, 4-0. Prep finished second in the IAC, which featured wins over Landon 3-1 and IAC champion Bullis 1-0. The Hoyas then fell in the quarterfinals of the MSHL playoffs to Bullis, 4-2. Senior captain Peter Black made second team All-met, and goalie Jason Maggio earned honorable mention. Record: 11-5-5

2005-2006: The Hoyas skated to Purple Puck finals before losing 3-2 to O’Connell in triple overtime. This season marked the first year that IAC hockey added a tournament. Prep finished second during the regular season, but won the IAC tournament with a 3-2 defeat of the Landon Bears. The Hoyas and the Bears were co-champions for the season. This season also marks the first time that Prep defeated DeMatha, besting the Stags 2-1, at the Laurel Ice Gardens. Phil O’Donoghue, Sr. recalls: “Going into the DeMatha game, Prep was depleted and its best defenseman was suspended. Brian Fitzgerald, Team Captain and an outstanding player, was moved from forward to defense, a position that he had never played at Prep. Prep’s agile and athletic Canadian goaltender Jason Maggio was incredible, standing on his head in blocking shots. The game ended with Jason being shoved into the Prep goal as the DeMatha players

www.gprephockey.org PREP HOCKEY SPIRIT - 11

desperately tried to score. It was an unbelievable and improbable victory.” The Hoyas lost to the Stags, 5-2, in a rematch during the MSHL quarterfinals. Jason Maggio was the first Hoyas’ goalie to be named to the Washington Post’s first team All-met squad. Junior Nick Petersen earned All-Met honorable mention honors. Record: 16-6 2006-2007: Once more, Prep made its way to the Purple Puck Finals, and again the Hoyas were defeated by O’Connell 4-3. Prep also returned to the IAC tournament finals but was defeated by Bullis 3-0. Prep finished second in the IAC and boasted two wins over archrival Landon by 6-1 and 4-1 margins. Nick Petersen was named first team All-Met, and goaltender Corey Walwaski was recognized as All-Met honorable mention. The team was defeated in the MSHL quarterfinals by powerhouse Mount St. Joseph, 6-3. Record: 16-7-1. Assistant coaches during this period: Tim Healy: 2001-2004, Paul McGonagle: 20012007, Edward Henneberry: 2002-2003, Dan Hegarty: 2004-2007, Adam Lusin: 2004-2007 Spotlight: Nick Petersen Nick came to Prep from Canada as a sophomore transfer and immediately began to blaze a three-year trail that resulted in his ultimate selection after his senior season as a Washington Post first team All-Met hockey player. In three seasons with the Hoyas, Nick scored an amazing 88 goals, had 58 assists, and totaled 146 points, averaging nearly 50 points per season. Nick is the second Prep hockey player to turn professional, being drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins in round 4 (number 121 overall) in the 2009 player draft.

The O’Leary Era (2007 – 2012) Sean O’Leary became Prep’s fourth varsity head coach, taking over the reins from Brian Maloney. Sean played NCAA hockey at Assumption, and was a member of the Prep varsity coaching staff prior to becoming head coach. Based on the foundation established over the course of many years, Prep hockey had now become a perennial contender in the IAC, MAPHL, Coach Sean O’Leary and Assistant Coach Nick Bliss and the Purple Puck, and was consistently ranked in the Washington Post’s top ten teams in the metro DC area.

thrilling 3-2 upset over the Cardinals. Corey Walwaski starred in goal for the Hoyas, turning back the opposition barrages over and over again. Talented junior CJ Sweigart didn’t lose a beat, centering the first line with freshmen wingers Justin Butler and Davey Chadwick. Junior John Kemp and Senior Jeb Billings kept the blueline secure for the Hoyas. Sniper Michael Marcus, scrappy winger Martin McNamara and center Henry Albers were key players on the team’s second line, contributing both scoring and strong defensive play. Sophomore wrecking crew Taylor Morgan starred on the blue line, rocking the opposition with ferocious body checks. Although the team was talented, the IAC was very good this year, with Bullis having a remarkably strong team, the best in recent memory. Prep finished the season 12-12-1, losing to Bullis in the IAC semi-finals. However, the big season highlight was defeating Bishop O’Connell 4-1 backed by a strong performance by Lee Banse in goal, and winning the Purple Puck Championship Banner for Prep. In that game as throughout the season, Prep was backstopped by goalie and senior assistant captain Lee Banse. Corey Walwaski was an Honorable Mention All-Met selection, and CJ Sweigart and Justin Butler were All-IAC selections. 2008-2009: The team finished the season

GEORGETOWN PREP HOCKEY HISTORY – 1990 TO PRESENT with an impressive overall record of 14-6-1. The season had its highs and lows as the team vastly improved in many areas of the game. Multiple players stepped up to fill key roles that were vital to the overall success of the team, buoyed by the leadership of senior team Captain John Kemp. Prep hockey was consistently ranked by the Washington Post among the top five teams in the area throughout the season. The team also earned a spot in the MAPHL (Mid-Atlantic Prep Hockey League) playoffs. In his two years as team manager, John Marcus re-defined the team manager role, communicating effectively with the team, seamlessly organizing team activities, motivating players with strong positive encouragement, establishing the first-ever “manager’s book”, and working tirelessly to advocate Prep hockey, both inside and outside of Georgetown Prep. In addition, John led countless on-ice sessions during the pre-season hockey conditioning program in September through October, ensuring that Prep hockey had an experienced and knowledgeable on-ice presence as coach and mentor. John’s example, efforts, and results have forever shaped Prep hockey to come. The end of the season was particularly challenging as every game turned out to be very important for Prep in the overall standings and playoffs. After a big win over Landon at the midway point of the season, all Prep had to do to take home the regular season IAC championship was either to beat or tie Landon in the second league match-up. After a hard fought game against a skilled Landon team, the Hoyas escaped with a 3-3 tie. The following game against St. Stephens & St. Agnes was the last IAC regular season match up. Prep

needed a victory in this game to clinch the number one seed in the playoffs. The team handily beat St. Stephens & St. Agnes 11-1, clinching the number one seed and celebrated the title of “IAC Champions”. The next task for the team was the IAC tournament playoffs. St. Stephens & St. Agnes somehow managed to defeat St. Albans in the play-in game to gain access to the semi-finals versus Prep. The game proved to be another easy win as Prep came out of the game victorious, scoring in double digits yet again. Landon, on the other hand, had a rough time against Bullis in their semi-final game as they had to overcome a three-goal deficit and then win in a shootout. The championship game between Prep and Landon was exhilarating as expected, but Prep never led in the game before losing 5-4. Although Landon had won in the playoffs, Prep remained the IAC champions of the regular season. Prep and Landon were named IAC Co-Champions. After gaining the title of “IAC Co-Champion”, Prep earned a spot in the MAPHL playoffs, comprised of the top private high school teams in the Baltimore-Washington area. The Hoyas were seeded 4th and were paired against Gonzaga in the quarter-finals. Unfortunately, Prep lost in a hard fought game which ended in an overtime period followed by a shootout. The Hoyas had three players achieve all-IAC honors in Justin Butler, Devin Drewyer, and CJ Sweigart. Butler and Sweigart also were named to the all-MAPHL team. All in all, it was a very successful year as the Prep hockey team continued to dominate in the IAC and remained a powerhouse in the Washington D.C. metro area.

Some impressive team highlights that occurred this season included a first-ever victory over Mount St. Joseph, a resounding 5-0 victory over DeMatha, and a 2-2 tie against a strong Canadian team —Garden Valley — at the Purple Puck tournament. Most impressively, Prep skated to a come-from-behind overtime victory over Landon, 4-3, to clinch the IAC championship. This year’s team was anchored by the play of junior left winger Justin Butler, who finished the season with 75 points (39 goals and 36 assists), leading all scorers in the IAC and the MAPHL. Senior Captain Devin Drewyer contributed strong leadership and finished second on the team in scoring with 49 points

(31 goals and 18 assists). Senior Assistant Captain Pat Hall scored a number of key goals, including the thrilling OT game-winner vs. Landon in the IAC playoffs. Sophomore AJ Taylor had a breakout season, finishing fourth overall in scoring. Truculent forwards Geo Roux and Joey Brogan anchored the IAC’s finest penalty killing unit. On the blue line, senior Assistant Captain Taylor “Caveman” Morgan was a wrecking ball, sending opponents reeling in each game played. Davey Chadwick made a switch early in the season from center to defense, and added an offensive flair to the position; finishing as the top scoring defenseman and tied with his brother, Freshman center Kyle Chadwick, for fifth in scoring overall on the team. Junior Scott Melby and Sophomore Michael McDonald firmly established themselves as hard-charging defensemen. Sophomore PJ McNamara was stellar in goal this year, with an 85.8% save percentage. Individual player honors rolled in after the season. Selected to the All-IAC team were: Justin Butler, Davey Chadwick, and Devin Drewyer.

GEORGETOWN PREP HOCKEY HISTORY – 1990 TO PRESENT Justin Butler as first-team All Met, and Devin Drewyer as second team All-Met. Honorable mention All-Met honors were bestowed upon Pat Hall, PJ McNamara, Taylor Morgan, and AJ Taylor. In the first round of the IAC playoffs, Prep put 46 shots on net, with 22 of them coming in the last stanza. Even so, Prep found itself trailing 2-0 with 1:48 left in the game. 4 seconds later, senior Pat Hall finally got Prep on the board, cutting the St. Albans lead to 2-1, with only 1:44 left in the contest. Only 20 seconds later, Pat Hall scored again to tie the game at 2-2. After the ensuing face-off, Taylor Morgan gained control of the puck in the St. Albans end, faked a shot, and passed to AJ Taylor, who hit the red light for the game-winning goal with .8 seconds remaining, catapulting the Hoyas into the IAC championship game vs. the arch-rival Landon Bears.

AJ Taylor

In the IAC championship game on Landon’s home rink, the arch-rival Bears jumped out to a 3-0 lead. In the third period with less than a minute into the play, Taylor Morgan scored on a rebound from Joe Brogan’s shot to close the Landon lead to 3-1. Just over a minute later,

www.gprephockey.org PREP HOCKEY SPIRIT - 15

Senior Captain Devin Drewyer flew down the right wing and unleashed a laser-like shot that closed the Landon lead to 3-2. Less than 30 seconds later, junior defenseman Davey Chadwick shot the puck on goal, producing a juicy rebound that was pounced upon by sophomore AJ Taylor, who buried the puck, tying the score at 3-3. In the ensuing suddendeath overtime period, Devin Drewyer shot on goal, producing a rebound to Pat Hall, who scored with 1:45 remaining to win the game and the IAC playoffs for Prep. In the subsequent MAPHL playoffs, Prep handily beat over-matched Spalding by a 9-2 score to advance to the semi-finals against the perennially strong Gonzaga Eagles. Gonzaga opened the scoring, but goals seven seconds apart by Justin Butler and Pat Hall gave Prep its first lead of the game, at 2-1. Gonzaga tied the game, but a goal by Devin Drewyer gave Prep its last lead of the game at 3-2. Gonzaga would score the next three goals to take a 5-3 lead. Late in the third period, Coach O’Leary pulled relief goalie Bruce Racine, and loaded the ice with a sixth attacker. The strategy paid off, as Taylor Morgan scored with 2:36 left in the period to close the score to 5-4. Without a goalie, but with the sixth attacker, Prep sent volley after volley of shots at the Gonzaga net. At one point, Pat Hall had apparently scored the tying goal with the opportunity to force the game into overtime, but the referee ruled that he had blown the whistle, and the apparent goal was disallowed. Time ran out on the Hoyas, but the team left it all on the ice, outshooting Gonzaga in the game, and in fact outshooting every team against which they played the entire season.

To put into perspective Justin’s point totals, consider that his average season output of 67 points per season trumps Justin Butler even that of our two professionals, Kashirsky and Petersen -- an amazing feat for a “home grown” Rockville native. In addition to these scoring accomplishments, Justin’s superhuman feats on the ice resulted in numerous post-season awards. The Washington Post honored Justin by bestowing upon him All Met status for his last 3 years of play. The IAC selected him on the all-IAC team for 4 straight years. He was selected as first team All-Gazette for all 4 years, first team all-MAPHL his last three years, and he was selected his senior year as the All-MAPHL player of the year, bestowed upon the finest hockey player in the Washington and Baltimore areas. To top it off, Justin’s magical, Gretzy-like career has resulted in his becoming Prep Hockey’s all time leading scorer and equally incredibly, breaking the all-time points total for private school hockey players in the tri-state (MD-VADC) area.

2010-2011: The defending IAC co-champions had something to prove this season, as they found themselves in an IAC that may have been the strongest-ever across the board. Landon had geared-up with a very strong roster of Tier I players, Bullis was capable of upsetting anyone, St. Albans was greatly improved, and St. Stephens had re-tooled. To undertake the challenge, Coach O’Leary looked to gain maximum benefit of his five talented seniors: Justin Butler, Joey Brogan, team Captain Davey Chadwick, Scott Melby, and Geo Roux. Early on, Davey Chadwick was again shifted from forward to defense for the majority of the season, anchoring perhaps the strongest blueline ever seen at Prep. Offensive firepower was provided by star forward Justin Butler (42G-38A-80 pts), who had another stellar season, and by sophomore Kyle Chadwick (28G-12A-40 pts). Two-way forwards Geo Roux, Joey Brogan, and Scott Melby kept the opposition in check while freeing up the offensive lanes for Prep. Michael McDonald, Lazar Zamurovic and Matt Billings patrolled the blueline. The team finished with an overall record of 16-6, finished as IAC finalists, MAPHL semi-finalists, and Purple Puck finalists. Prep hockey finished third overall in both The Washington Post and MAPHL rankings. Justin Butler earned first team all-MAPHL, first team All-Met, and first team All-Gazette honors, as well as his fourth straight All-IAC selection, and was selected as the All-MAPHL player of the year. Goalie PJ McNamara had an outstanding season, earning All Met honorable mention and AllGazette Honorable mention. Davey Chadwick was selected All-Met Honorable mention, First team All-Gazette, and All-IAC for his efforts. His younger brother Kyle Chadwick was named All-IAC and All-Gazette.

GEORGETOWN PREP HOCKEY HISTORY – 1990 TO PRESENT

The Current Era (2012 – Present) Paul Fritz became Prep’s fifth varsity head coach in August 2012, following the five-year coaching tenure of Sean O’Leary. A Maryland native, Paul played high school hockey locally at Archbishop Spalding before transferring to the Canterbury School, a private, Catholic preparatory school in New Milford Connecticut, where he played on the varsity hockey team. During his senior year at Canterbury, he was offered multiple Division 1 NCAA hockey scholarships, however, he sustained an injury that prevented him from playing college hockey. Ultimately, he found his passion as a hockey coach and mentor at Team Maryland and Navy Youth hockey programs, prior to becoming Prep’s Varsity Head Coach. Nick Bliss continues in his 6th season with Prep hockey and first season alongside Paul Fritz in the current era. Nick, a proud Bishop O’Connell graduate and founding member of O’Connell hockey, is also “home grown”, starring in youth travel hockey for the TriCity Eagles and played a year of NCAA D-III lacrosse at Salve Regina in Newport, RI. The next time you are at Laurel Ice Gardens, take a walk into the feature rink and look at the board with all of the former Tri-City Eagle stars. You will find Nick’s name there! Nick resides in McLean, VA and works for New York Life Insurance Company. Mike Mousseau begins his 2nd season as a Prep hockey varsity Assistant Coach. Mike or “Moose” as he is known, is the lone Canadian in the hockey program. Mike hails from Ottawa, Ontario and works at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) in a neuroscience research lab. He is studying the biochemistry of brain

injury and is currently applying to medical school. Mike played prep school hockey at Wyoming Seminary College Preparatory School in Kingston, PA; and graduated from St. Lawrence University, where he managed the club hockey program. 2011-2012: After graduation in 2011, Prep Hockey incurred the loss of five talented seniors that had dramatically set the direction for the team. At that point, Prep was viewed by many local hockey prognosticators as not having much of a chance in the race to the top of the IAC and the MAPHL. The thinking at the time was that Landon was unbeatable; Archbishop Spalding nearly PJ McNamara unbeatable, and that Gonzaga and DeMatha would once again rule the “best of the rest.” Undaunted, Coach O’Leary, a goalie himself, designed the team in the traditional manner, built from the goaltender out. The key ingredients to Coach O’Leary’s strategy were his three skilled seniors: Team Assistant Captain goalie PJ McNamara, who anchored the team with the greatest season of his heralded career; Team Captain Mike McDonald, who anchored the blue line in stunning fashion, and Team Assistant Captain AJ Taylor, who was a physical and scoring force and finished second on the team in scoring (24G-18A-42 Pts). The prognosticators looked accurate after the team’s first 10 games; as Prep sported a 7-3 record having lost to Spalding, and then twice to Gonzaga. The second loss to Gonzaga was on Friday, December 30, 2011. However, Prep then reeled off nine straight victories carrying

During the 9game win streak, Prep defeated both DeMatha and archrival Landon and won both the IAC and MAPHL regular season championships. Junior center Kyle Chadwick led the team in scoring (26G-19A-45 Pts), junior defenseman Michael Roche maintained his ever-steady defensive presence, playing nearly mistakefree throughout the season and perhaps being the team’s hardest worker. Junior Jeff Plamondon Mike McDonald had the best playing season of his career, capably stepping up to keep opposing forwards off the board. Super sophomores center Cole Taylor (7G-7A-14 pts) and winger Ryan Howe (10G-5A-15 pts) had career seasons offensively, and played outstanding two-way hockey, killed penalties, and effectively worked the team’s power play. Ryan Howe’s season including scoring a spectacular penalty shot goal during the Purple Puck tournament. Sophomore Brendan Peel was given an opportunity in the second half of the season and he took advantage of it, contributing in a two-way fashion to Prep’s strong finish. In fact, Brendan unselfishly passed to Kyle Chadwick at the end of a game, giving up an easy empty-netter as Kyle was in better position to score. Sophomore blueliner Matt Billings did his best imitation of Taylor Morgan’s “Caveman”, contributing brutal hits and impressive chirping to Prep’s opponents throughout the season, yet also rushed the puck up ice a la Bobby Orr. Although ultimately falling in the playoffs, the post-season awards rolled in. Coach O’Leary

SCOTT SMITH ALUMNI GAME as described by Scott’s son Matt Smith (Prep ’03) Since 2003, the year my father passed, the Georgetown Prep alumni hockey game has been played in his honor. Kevin Charles, my former coach and good friend of my father’s, presented my family with the idea of naming the game and an award after my father. Each year, following the game the Scott Smith Memorial Award is presented to a person or family who puts their heart and soul into the Georgetown Prep hockey program. My father always loved hockey, and he grew up playing at the Chevy Chase Club. Dad attended Landon from third grade until sophomore year, when he begged his parents to let him transfer to Georgetown Prep. His parents relented, and he couldn’t have been happier. He loved the sense of community that Prep provided, and while he didn’t come from a religious family, he cherished the prayers that were offered on one knee before sporting events. Dad graduated from Prep in 1975, and in 1999, my freshmen year, he found himself back in the Prep community. He was always very involved in my games, as well as in my younger brother’s games at the youth level. He was active at all levels -- coaching, running the scoreboard, or just driving to the middle of nowhere at 5 a.m. on a weekend morning for our games. It was inevitable that he would become involved with the Prep ice hockey program. During my four years at Prep, my father was a fixture at the hockey games, as he was constantly working behind the scenes to make sure that the season ran smoothly. At the time, Prep hockey had only one team and had never had a winning season. Dad made it his dream to make the Prep hockey program a force in the Washington, DC area. It didn’t take long. My

sophomore year (the 2000-2001 season) we had Prep hockey’s first-ever winning season, and my junior year we won the first-ever IAC hockey championship. Since my time there, the Prep hockey program has continued to grow and has transformed into the powerhouse hockey program that my father envisioned it to be. The annual alumni game was my father’s little side project. He began organizing this game around 2000, collecting emails and hunting down past players. He organized a game over Thanksgiving break, knowing that the college students would be home and that the alumni would gladly take on the current Prep team. I believe it was also an excuse for him to lace the skates up again and show me, and my teammates, how it’s done. What started off as a small game of pickup in 2000, has become a hallowed tradition in the Prep hockey community. Each year, the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving, former Prep hockey players file into Cabin John ice rink for a game with the current team. And every year as I am reunited with old friends, and introduced to new, I can’t help but think of my father looking down, smiling, at this great tradition he helped start and viewing the flourishing Prep hockey program that he envisioned.

SCOTT SMITH ALUMNI GAME

HENRY ALBERS – Varsity Hockey Captain,

All alumni players are encouraged to participate in the Scott Smith Alumni Game. The participants have a great time competing and renewing friendships. Pete Plamondon (’77) is usually the “elder statesman” on the ice. Players typically include John Kemp (’09), Dan Gallagher (’08), Michael Marcus (’09), Joey Kemp (’05), Kevin (‘05), Brendan (’07), Martin (’09) McNamara, Pat Hall (’10), Devin Drewyer (’10), and Justin Butler (’11). During the post game dinner, the Scott Smith Memorial Award is presented annually to a program participant that has assisted the hockey team and provided leadership through example. Past winners have included Fr. William George, S.J., Bob Kemp, and Phil O’Donoghue.

Henry’s years playing on the Prep hockey team were defined by hard work, leading by example, centering a strong twoway line, and most importantly, being selected Varsity team Captain, proudly wearing the “C” during his senior season. Henry’s leadership style evoked a strong and positive response from his team, which played in the most competitive-ever IAC and MAPHL in Prep’s history. Henry’s fondest hockey memory is leading his team to an upset victory in the Purple Puck Championship game over a favored Bishop O’Connell team during his senior year.

The Hoyas hockey team starts the 2012 – 2013 campaign as IAC and MAPHL regular season champions, and finished last season ranked in the top 5 overall in the metro area by the Washington Post. Seniors Kyle Chadwick, Michael Roche, Jeff Plamondon, and Steven Ward will lead the team into battle against tough local competition including Gonzaga, Landon, Calvert Hall, and DeMatha; and an array of highly ranked opponents such as St. Joseph’s Prep (Philadelphia), Loyola Academy (Chicago), and Malvern Prep (Philadelphia).

Of his impressive qualities, Henry’s “never quit” attitude best exemplifies his life to date. As chronicled in the Prep hockey history: Perhaps one of the most memorable outings for Prep hockey during Henry’s senior year was an away game vs. Baltimore power Calvert Hall at the Mt. Pleasant arena. Trailing 2-1 with only half a period to go in the contest, Henry Albers single-handedly rallied his team, telling them that the Hoyas were not going to lose the game. Then, in Mark Messier fashion, Henry helped fulfill his rallying cry by drilling the game-tying goal that reversed the momentum of a game that became a thrilling upset in a 3-2 comeback victory over the powerful Cardinals.

HOCKEY TEAM SERVICE

SHOES FOR EL SALVADOR Prep Hockey Service – Athletic Shoes for El Salvador Prep students are generally blessed with all that they have. However, our players also know that there are many who have not. Beginning with the 2010-2011 season, Prep Hockey players collected slightly used but serviceable athletic shoes and cleats to support a wonderful service project pioneered by former teammate, IV Rosica ‘12. IV, and his younger brother Clay (Mater Dei ’12, and St. Anselms ’16) traveled together on December 18th to El Salvador to distribute these shoes. For IV, this was his third mission trip to El Salvador, and for Clay, his first. IV and Clay, based out of a local Jesuit mission near Zaragoza, distributed the shoes collected by the team to the children of the village as part of the mission to spread the Catholic faith. This year, Senior Team Captain Kyle Chadwick ‘13 and Junior Cole Taylor ‘14 led the Prep shoe drive. It is fair to say that this third year of the service drive was Prep’s most successful ever, netting approximately 400-500 pairs of shoes, contributing to an overall total of roughly 600 pairs! Thanks to all at Prep hockey and to the Prep community that have contributed to this service project for the 2012-2013 Season.

JANUARY HOCKEY TRIP TO PHILADELPHIA The Varsity hockey team took their second road trip to Philadelphia in January 2012. The team motor coach departed as it did the year before on Friday afternoon and all were treated to a box lunch graciously provided by the Plamondon family. In the early evening, the bus arrived at the hotel in the Philadelphia outskirts, and the team rested for the evening game against Saint Joseph’s Prep, the high school alma mater of Prep Admissions Dean, Brian Gilbert. At the game, Prep jumped out to an early lead and maintained it to win the game, 5-1 against a St. Joe’s Prep team that the Hoyas had defeated only by a 2-1 score at the Purple Puck tournament in December of 2011. On Saturday morning the team arose and breakfasted at the hotel prior to setting out for the day’s trek to Dave & Busters, in the Philadelphia suburbs. After a spending a few hours there, to include lunch, the team bussed to play Salesianum of Delaware. In this game, it was Prep from the outset as the Hoyas started big and finished strongly, besting the opponents by a 7-1 margin, completing a second straight 2-0 sweep of the two games on the road. This season, the varsity team will once again venture to Philadelphia in January to play Philadelphia area power, Malvern Prep.
