For a second straight week we head to the ice and recognize an outstanding performance from area girls hockey. Sartell/Sauk Rapids Senior forward Nikki Partch is this week's Metro Sports Commission Player of the Week. Partch scored a goal and notched an assist as she helped the Storm 'N Sabres to a 3-0 win over the rival St. Cloud Ice Breakers.
The two point performance gives Partch three goals and three assits on the season. Last season, as a Junior, Partch scored just two goals and recorded six assists. But her final high school season on the ice is off to a quick start. Partch is already second on the team in points and is tied for third in goals. That early season effort has helped the Storm 'N Sabres to the top of the early season standings in the Central Lakes Conference.
Congratulations Nikki Partch on being the All Star Trophy and Awards Player of the Week!
