Wild times at Meadowview
It might not have been the Xcel Energy Center, and Niklas Backstrom might not have been in the net, but there was still plenty of excitement at Meadowview Elementary School's annual floor hockey tournament March 11.
The tournament capped off several days of skills training in phy ed teacher Joe McCarthy's classes. Students in grades 1-5 learned all of the basics of hockey -- in a scaled-down version, with no checking, of course -- over the past couple of weeks. Students in grades 1-2 just learned about the skills and played a little during class. The older kids in grades 3-5, participated in a floor hockey tournament.
