Westwood High School girls varsity hockey put together another solid campaign in 2019-2020. The Wolverines finished the regular season 14-5-3, good enough to earn the No. 9 seed in the Division II state tournament. After a 3-2 victory over Algonquin-Hudson in the first round, the Wolverines had their season come to an end in the quarterfinals, falling 6-1 to No. 1 overall seed Wellesley.
Despite the tough end to the year for the Wolverines, there is much reason for optimism in regards to the future of the program. Freshman phenom defenseman Sophia Levering bursted onto the scene for Westwood, scoring 15 goals and adding 19 assists to help lead Westwood to the TVL title. Levering’s impressive freshman season earned her TVL co-MVP honors, as well as All-Scholastic honors. Levering recently attended USA Hockey’s National Development Camp and will provide Westwood with a dominant two-way presence on the blue line for years to come.
Along with Levering, two other Wolverines were recognized for their hard work this season: junior forward Hannah Blomquist and senior defenseman Emma Conway took home TVL All-Star honors.
