Flood-Marr Trophy Returns to Milton After 40 Years
Defeating Kimball Union Academy 3–1, Milton’s boys’ hockey team won the 57th annual Flood-Marr Tournament in December.
The tournament is named for Dick “Lefty” Marr and his college roommate, longtime friend, and rival hockey coach Dick Flood. Lefty Marr was a member of the Milton faculty from 1957 to 1980. The three-day competition for boys’ teams includes Milton, Nobles, Hotchkiss, Andover, Westminster, Deerfield, Kimball Union, and Salisbury.
Girls’ varsity hockey made an impressive showing the same weekend in the 41st Harrington Invitational tournament, getting to the championship round for the first time ever. The girls faced off against Nobles, Lawrence, St. Paul’s, St. Mark’s, BB&N, Westminster, and Williston-Northampton. They ultimately lost to Williston-Northampton, placing second.
