The No. 1 seed in the 2019 High School Varsity Girls tournament, Fenwick, punched their ticket to the United Center for the 2019 High School State Championships with a 3-1 win over Latin School at The Edge in Bensenville on Thursday night. The Friars will be looking for their first Illinois state title in school history when they take the ice at the UC on March 22.

Tweet from @fenwickfriars: Kudos to the students who came to Bensenville last night to support #FenwickFriars Girls' Hockey, which defeated Latin 3-1 to advance the State Final in two weeks: on Friday, March 22. Opponent is New Trier; puck drop at 4:00 p.m. at the United Center! GO FRIARS!! #dayoff?


The Blackhawks will host the 2019 Illinois State High School Hockey Championships, presented by Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana Chevy Dealers, at the United Center on Friday, March 22. Fans can purchase tickets here to watch Fenwick battle New Trier in the first game of the tournament at 4:30 p.m. 

Tweet from @FenwickHockey: Congrats to the Girls Hockey Team for advancing to the State Finals with a 3-1 win over Latin! Girls High School State Championship @ the United Center @3/22 @ 4:30 pm vs. New Trier.

Head Coach Mason Strom and nine seniors have helped the Friars reach the United Center for just the second time in school history. After being knocked out of the state tournament by 2018 runner-ups Glenbrook South the last two seasons, the Friars rocked Glenbrook 11-1 in the quarterfinals this month before edging Latin School on Thursday. 

Fenwick already has a win over defending state champs New Trier this season, who they will face on March 22 with a championship on the line.
