Prep hockey could repeat as state champs
Despite winning its state record 14th Division 1 championship in 2010-11, the Fairfield Prep boys ice hockey team could be better in 2011-12.
The Jesuits return 16 letterwinners, including their top-defender and an all-state forward from a club that finished 21-3, and dominated St. Joseph in the state final a year.
"We expect to be deep and experienced," coach Matt Sather said.
Prep did lose its top-scorer, Bryan Puffer and his linemate David Griffin to graduation. But AJ Unker, who had 30 points a year ago and was an all-state forward, will anchor the top line along with David White and his 28 assists from a season ago. White led the club with 36 points and along with Evan Antisdale and Unker will
spearhead a talented scoring unit.

"They're a fast and physical defensive unit," Sather said.
