The Seniors of 2020
Although every player this season has missed their opportunities, the senior class, in many cases, had been looking forward to their last year for many years. As a small recognition of their accomplishments, the Coaches of Section V have helped to put together a list of the more than 320 members of the senior class of 2020.
Independent Teams Seniors
Around thirty seniors were set to play on the three independent teams in 2020.
BATAVIA (4 Seniors)
Batavia was merged with both Attica and Notre Dame in 2019, but was expecting to play as Batavia in 2020. Two senior returned, offensive player, Ben Paserk and defenseman John Petry. Matt Beach and Cody Burns were new the Varsity.
EAST UNITED (No Report)
There were lots of possible seniors on the East United team, which was merged with Eastridge this season, but we were unable to get the team roster information.
PENN YAN (5 Seniors)
As usual, Penn Yan starts with a group of strong seniors and builds their teams with a lot of youngsters. In 2020 the Mustangs were looking for another successful season stating with Colt Smith (41g-18a) and Chase Blumbergs (18g-9a) on the offensive end and Jeff Kinyoun (95 saves 65%) in the goal. Smith was a two-time All-Tournament team honoree.
