Ice hockey Top 10: Battle-tested O’Connell turns its attention to Northern Virginia
Washington Post, Feb. 21, 2018


Bishop O'Connell competes in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC) and the Mid-Atlantic Prep Hockey League (MAPHL), one of the highest levels of hockey competition for high school-age players in the Mid Atlantic. This upcoming season the Knights will skate three team's for the first time in school history with a Varsity, Varsity 2 and an all-freshmen teams. Knights hockey players have developed a reputation as being a hard working team that plays with passion and good sportsmanship.

This past season the varsity team participated in the USA Hockey High School Nationals in Cleveland, Ohio, advancing to the quarterfinals before losing to the national champions Santa Margarita Catholic HS. 

The Knights skate at the Medstar Capitals Iceplex, the official practice facility for the Washington Capitals located less than four miles from campus. The close proximity allows for over 35 practices immediately after classes on Tuesdays at 3:30 p.m. and Friday’s at 4:00 p.m. Practices are designed to help players improve their individual skills as well as becoming better team players. One goal of the program is to prepare the student-athletes for their futures in hockey and in life.
