McDowell High School Alumni GO TROJANS!
The year was 1974-75. The McDowell Trojans assembled Northwest Pennsylvania’s first ever high school hockey team as a member of the Lakeshore Hockey League. And at the conclusion of that first season, Erie hosted the first ever Pennsylvania State High School Hockey Championship at JMC Ice Rink. Baldwin was crowned the first scholastic hockey champion in state history after a 4-3 overtime win over Churchill.
McDowell was one of (6) league champions that qualified for the inaugural state championship:
McDowell Trojans (LKSHL)
Baldwin Highlanders (WPIHL)
Churchill Chargers (WPIHL)
Richland Rams (WPIHL)
Bishop Neumann Panthers (ICSHL)
Springfield Cougars (ICSHL)
2018-19 marks the 44h consecutive year of McDowell High School Hockey and is one of the state’s oldest and longest continuous running programs.
