Girls hockey comes to Taunton High through Hockomock Stars co-op

FOXBORO — Heading into the 2022-23 season, the MOA Warriors were facing a dilemma.

The girls hockey co-op between Hockomock League members Mansfield, Oliver Ames and Foxboro graduated 16 of its players over the past two seasons and to make matters worse, they had no incoming freshmen from any of the three schools.

Coincidentally, there also happened to be a growing appetite for girls hockey at several other Hockomock schools that didn’t have teams, including Taunton.

“There’s been some interest from girls playing ice hockey for the past couple of years and the opportunity came about when it was discussed at a league meeting about different schools putting together (a co-op) and who was interested,” Taunton athletic director Mark Ottavianelli said. “We knew we had a couple of girls who were interested that were ice hockey student athletes and we were interested in pursuing a team with other members of the Hockomock League.”
