 The Maine Principals Association Interscholastic Management Committee approved a request from Houlton and Hodgdon to add Southern Aroostook and Katahdin students to the cooperative hockey team. 

    The request was made by SAHS and Katahdin Principal Jon Porter. The Houlton and Hodgdon School Boards approved the coop team and sent it to the MPA who accepted the request today. Porter made the inquiry because a student at Southern Aroostook had been playing in the Southern Aroostook Minor Hockey Association in Elementary and MIddlle School and wanted to play varsity hockey. Houlton Athletic Director Bruce Nason said Houlton and Hodgdon have run a cooperative team for over a decade. The team will continue to compete in Class B.
