About a month after winning the Amateur Hockey Association of Illinois state title, Fenwick junior Ellie Kaiser is already back to her winning ways. The Friars' All-State forward played on the Chicago Mission which won its second straight 16U national title in April.

During the high school regular season, Kaiser scored 42 goals to go with 15 assists as Fenwick (24-1-5) claimed its first state championship in program history.

"Winning state feels amazing. There's nothing like it," Kaiser said after the Friars' 3-2 win over New Trier in the state final on March 26. "Our fans and the Blackhawks made it an unbelievable experience that I don't think any of us will forget. It is truly one for the books."

After high school, Kaiser will play Division I hockey at Rensselaer Polytechnic  Institute in Troy, New York.
