Ice Hockey - Boys Varsity (Prep Team)
Wyoming Seminary's hockey program is an associate member of the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC). The team is also a member of the Mid-Atlantic Hockey League (MAHL), along with Lawrenceville, Hill School, Princeton Day School, Hun School of Princeton, La Salle College High School, and Portledge School. Sem claimed the MAHL Championship in both 2014 and 2018. The program is dedicated to developing student-athletes to their full potential, on the ice and in the classroom. Designed around the academic calendar, Sem’s hockey schedule exposes our student-athletes to the best competition while maintaining the academic integrity of the school.
