Will Pine City-Rush City Hockey Combine With Mora-Hinckley Finlayson Hockey?
High School Hockey season has wrapped up but hockey talk is still peculating in a few local area school districts.
On Thursday, during the Pioneer Report with Mike Gainor we discussed developments at the recent Pine City School Board meeting that could result in the merge of the Pine City / Rush City Dragons boys hockey team into one squad with the current Mora / Hicnkley-Finlayson Mustangs.
Yes, right now talks are underway that could result in a larger co-op between boys hockey teams at all four schools.
Our Jesse Logan visited with Mora-Hinckley Finlayson boys coach Charlie Whitbred on Thursday, he said there were good reasons to strongly consider the change. Whitbred said if the four schools ended up in a co-op, they would have to move up to class AA, but that didn’t seem like much of an issue. He said he’s basically waiting to hear what decisions are made indivually by both Pine City and Rush City, but Whitbred said the change could be in effect as quickly as next season, but nothing is for sure yet.
