Milton’s boys’ and girls’ varsity hockey teams both placed in the weekend’s holiday tournament. The boys’ team placed third in the 46th Annual Flood-Marr Tournament with an undefeated weekend, outscoring Andover, Hotchkiss and Nobles. Defenseman Pat McNally (I) and forward Dan Merenich (I) earned spots on the 2010 all-tournament team.
The Flood-Marr tournament began in 1965 and is named after long-time Milton coach Dick Marr and former Nobles coach Richard Flood. The three-day tournament, featuring the best teams in prep school hockey, draws a crowd, not only of family and friends, but also of college scouts looking for recruits. Milton has won the title five times since the tournament’s inception.
The girls’ team took third place this weekend in the 12th Annual Westminster Invitational Tournament, hosted by the Westminster School in Simsbury, Connecticut. The girls competed against top-ranked New England teams such as Governor’s Academy, Kimball Union and Northfield Mount Hermon.
