Returning from their third straight state championship and an invite to the national tournament, the Jesuit Dallas Varsity Hockey team has started their season.

Jesuit Hockey has started their season 1-6, a poor start to the season, but they also started their season last year 0-4, and they ended up winning state.

The hockey team is led by new coach Nick Hinkley and captains: C- Alec Ralhfs ’22, C- Jack Sweda ’22, A-  Charlie Cohen ’22, and A- Kyle Hogan ’23.

Frisco (West)

Trying to start off their season strong, Jesuit attempted to make big plays on the ice. Junior goalie Drew Zang saved 27/29 shots. Kyle Hogan gave the Rangers their first knock in the scoring column with a goal with an assist from Charlie Cohen in the third period. However, the Rangers only had 11 shot attempts while Frisco had 29. The goal from Hogan was the only one of the game for Jesuit and the Rangers lost 2-1.

Trying to bounce back from their loss, Jesuit got started strong in the first period with a goal from Danny Myung ’25, however, Keller responded with five goals. Drew Zang saved 25 more shots, adding to make his total 51 in two games. This was not enough though as Jesuit lost 7-1.

Trying to bounce back from the loss, the Rangers got back onto the ice. Alec Ralhfs started the game with his third goal of the season, however, the Rangers were shut out in the next two periods. Andrew Zang had a great performance between the pipes, saving 31 shots. Despite his best efforts, he let in two goals and Jesuit lost 2-1.

Frisco (West)

Hoping not to get hindered off track, the Rangers were really looking for a win. They scored early in the first period but this was soon answered by two goals from Frisco. Jesuit tied it up in the second but was shut out for the rest of the game and Frisco scored four more goals.

Aside from being a team full of great athletes, the hockey team is also full of great chefs with a party spirit. Jesuit hockey has been active on campus this fall, participating in the pre-game tailgate competition before the pink out football game on October 8 against MacArthur and the Alumni Tailgate Competition held during homecoming weekend.

The hockey team won the pre-game tailgate, beating the baseball and water polo teams, and winning the hockey team and cash prize. The hockey station was full of decorations, spirited players, competitive games, and great food. Jesuit Hockey has already vowed to defend the title of “Tailgate Champion” again next year.

Along with the pre-game tailgate, they also participated in the alumni competition on the Saturday of homecoming weekend. They won the “People’s Choice” award and also placed second in the brisket competition.
