All three Scouts teams made it to the championship game of the September 2022 Kings Kup. Varsity & JV Blue brought home the championship win. Varsity defeated Libertyville and JV Blue beat Prep in OT! JV Gold took home 2nd place after an 8 round shootout! All three teams were there together until the very end supporting one another.
Scouts Hockey was accepted into the Scholastic Hockey League (SHL), the premier high school league in the state in May, 2022.
