T-Birds preparing for turnaround season


By Jim denHollander



The Baraboo/Portage Thunderbirds varsity hockey team took the first strides on what coaches and players hope will be a turnaround season at Lake Delton Ice Arena last week.

Some of the 2020-21 Baraboo/Portage T-Birds hopefuls get some instructions before a drill during their Captain’s practice at Lake Delton Ice Arena on Wednesday night.

The team is running regular ‘Captain’s Practices’ at Lake Delton on Wednesday and Thursday nights with several members from a younger squad a season ago, looking to take the next step.

The team graduated six seniors last season, but among the returners this season is Campbell Koseor who led the team in scoring as a junior with 33 points (17g, 16a) in 23 games. Among the 17 goals were five on powerplay and five of his goals were game winners – an awesome stat considering the team won just 11 games.

Koseor is currently balancing a tough schedule, preparing for Baraboo’s first football game on Friday while fitting in the early hockey workouts and while the term ‘Captain’s Practice may imply a light, shinny-based workout. Koseor and his mates were engaged in a fast-paced session on Wednesday after which he took a few minutes to chat with Saukhockey.info.

The T-Birds, like RWD, the Badger Lightning and soon (at their own rink) the Sauk Prairie Eagles are all taking to the ice early to gear up for their respective varsity seasons.
