Despite the record, there were seven Eagles players selected to the annual Southwest Michigan High School Hockey League skills competition.

Senior Colin Mehren was the only Gull Lake student selected for this honor.

Other Eagles players selected include Jimmy Wressel from Paw Paw, Carter Maxi from Parchment, Steve Lockwood from Paw Paw, Zach Pernie from Gobles, Zach Blackwell from Kalamazoo Christian, and Houston Born from Plainwell.

The All-Star game was hosted Monday, January 22. Mehren managed to score twice in the shootout, giving his team the win.

The Eagles will face Portage Northern on Wednesday.
