It's been a month and a half since Atholton won its first Maryland Student Hockey League title.
And while ice hockey is not recognized as a sanctioned varsity sport by the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association, Howard County's ice hockey players are just as talented and hard working as all of the other winter athletes.
With that in mind, here are the Howard County Ice Hockey All-Stars. We've already run our basketball, wrestling and indoor track all-county stories, so it's time for the young men and women of ice hockey to get their recognition.
