Editorial: Don't drop puck on girls hockey
The Worthington High School girls hockey program could become a thing of the past by the upcoming 2013-2014 season, but it doesn't necessarily have to be that way. District 518 Superintendent John Landgaard explained during the June 18 school board meeting that the girls varsity...
