Port Huron High School had the first female goalie to play on a boys’ team in Michigan. In 1980 Vicki Zeller suited up to start for the Big Reds. She would lead the way for others. In 1987 Barb Eady also skated on the boy’s team, as well as in 1999 Heather Maxwell. By 2005 Port Huron had the first female hockey team combined with Port Huron Northern. It was the Rebels. Today we have the Lady Icehawks. Numbers have dwindled over the years as more players have opted for travel teams over school teams. This has created the need for a positions on school boys’ team at Port Huron High School. Ally Fetterly and Victoria Loxton handled the goaltending duties for the Port Huron boy’s hockey team in 2014. Fetterly played her freshman season on the Port Huron High and Port Huron Northern unified girl’s team. But beginning last year as a sophomore, she chose the road less traveled and began to suit up for the boy’s squad. “I think it’s been more challenging,” Fetterly said. “It is a lot harder and the speed of the game was a lot quicker. I always have to be on my game. “Playing for the girls wasn’t as challenging. I figured switching to the boys would be a lot better than me and help me get ready for college. Fetterly has often played well while the Big Reds have struggled and has been the best player on the team.
