As Director of the Girls Hockey program and Girls Prep Head Coach, Gordie Stafford is in his 19th year at Shattuck-St. Mary’s. He had this reflection on the day and his players’ accomplishments. “This day marks another step on these young athletes’ journey toward their dreams. All of our students work so hard, but not all are recognized in this way, so with it also comes the responsibility to keep persevering and being leaders for those who come after them.”
