The Pennsylvania High School Hockey Championships began in 1975 as a vision of several people who understood the hard work and achievement of the student athletes in Pennsylvania. Whether it was Jim Cox’s overtime winner for Baldwin or Downingtown East’s five-overtime classic, the championship continues to keep fans and followers alike on the edges of their seats. Many great teams, such as eight-time champions Meadville and seven-time champions Bayard Rustin, have reached this championship. Notable alumni include Germantown Academy’s Mike Richter and Pine Richland’s Brandon Saad, both Stanley Cup champions. The development of high school hockey in Pennsylvania begins in grade school and continues through middle school and junior varsity. It is a community effort with the support of many. Today, teams from 150 high schools compete in the championship.
