Danny Brescia of MHHS holds the High School Hockey State Championship Cup last Sunday in Sun Valley. Brandon Reyes, also from MHHS made the trip up to support his friend.
Mountain Home High School Sophomore Danny Brescia helped his Canyon County Coyotes hockey team to a State Championship this past weekend. The Coyotes are a competitive ice hockey club made up of high school athletes from Canyon County, Idaho and the surrounding areas. Most of the players come from high schools with no hockey teams or are home schooled students. The Coyotes play from September through March at Idaho Ice World in Boise. The 2012 Idaho Amateur Hockey Association High School tournament was held in Sun Valley last Thursday through Sunday at the Sun Valley Resort ice rink. The 14 team tournament was the largest in State history. The Coyotes beat the Sun Valley Suns in the championship game 4-2, taking their first ever State title after finishing second last season. Brescia is the only Varsity player from Mountain Home. Will Oppedyk, also from Mountain Home, plays on the Junior Varsity team.
