Votes Upcoming To Decide On Merging High School Hockey Programs

Will the Lake Placid and Saranac Lake boys’ high school hockey teams become one. The discussion is being prompted by lower numbers of students trying out for teams. The girls hockey tems merged two years ago and now the same move for the boys squads could be finalized by the start of next month. The Adirondack Daily Enterprise reports the Saranac Lake Board of Education has a resolution to approve combining the boys hockey teams on the agenda for its June 19 meeting, but it could be pushed back to July 3 depending on community output, according to district Superintendent Diane Fox. Lake Placid school officials plan to have a discussion of the merger on June 18 and then vote on it July 2.
