The New Prague adapted floor hockey team is looking to follow up on a strong season with another state tournament appearance in 2019.

The squad finished last year with a 12-1-1 record, with their only loss coming in the first round of the state tournament. They went on to win consolation honors.

Shelly Kriha is back for another season as head coach, and she is assisted by Jeremy Kalal and Steve Kriha. Support staff Diane Johnson and Connie Jensen help with the team, along with student managers Brookelyn Skluzacek, Brandon Zeilinger and Eva Johnson.

“We have 21 athletes out for floor hockey this year,” said Kriha. Team members come from New Prague, Tri- City United, Belle Plaine and Jordan schools.

This year’s team includes five new players. “We hope to quickly get new players in positions and ready to play at a high level. We hope to finish as always in the top of our conference and advance to the State Tournament after winning a home playoff game.”
