New Trier Green beat Providence Catholic Celtics 5-2 for the Illinois High School Hockey Championship on March 18 at the United Center. It was the 13th title in Green history, and 11th for Head Coach Bob Melton. Jack Raith had a historic night, with 4 goals including one just 26 seconds into the game, and 2 TV interviews. Matt Mulhern also scored what ended up being the game winner. Will Douthit and the Green defense held the Celtics to two 1st period goals, one of which was very controversial as it appeared to be knocked in by a Celtics high stick. The entire team played great. The celebration on the ice in front of the New Trier student section will not soon be forgotten.


The win capped an amazing and memorable season, not only winning State but also the SHL Regular Season and SHL Playoffs. Trifecta. The team had all the ingredients of a champion - 2 great goalies and a talented group of defensemen and forwards. It had great leadership, character, and resiliency.  


To the coaches - Thanks for your time, talent and energy. Best of luck to Coach Lenny who is retiring from the Green bench. You will be missed.


To the Seniors - Best of luck as you move on to the next exciting stage in your life, which will hopefully still include playing hockey.  


To the Juniors and Sophomores - Repeat in 2017.
