The Brookfield Stars co-op hockey team has absorbed the Waukesha Catholic Memorial team to create a three-school co-op, the schools have announced.
Catholic Memorial’s head coach, Steve Chapin, will coach the new team, according to a press release. A former Brookfield Stars head coach, Matt Shapiro, will be his assistant.
The team will play its games at the Ponds of Brookfield but practice in the mornings at Eble Ice Arena. According to the release, the schools were unable to reach agreement with the Ponds on a practice time that would best fit the program.
Catholic Memorial had been in a co-op with Pius XI. The team finished 3-19-0 last year, according to WisSports.net, dropping its first game in the WIAA regional.
