McElheney Stands Guard In The Northview Net

by Coach Elliott on February 24, 2006

When Bobby McElheney graduates from Northview he would like to serve his Country in the United States Marine Corp. For now he will have to be satisfied standing guard against enemy fire in the Northview goal. On pace for one of the finest seasons in Northview history, McElheney leads his Cats into the state playoffs seeking their first final four berth since the 1989-90 State runner-up team.
As with a lot of High School athletes, Bobby followed in the footsteps of his older siblings. Pat Brighton and his stepbrother Blane Schmich patrolled the Northview blue line from 1998 through the 2001 season. In donning the Northview black and gold McElheney has done what his brothers had been unable to do by winning a league championship. Now he would like to continue that by making a trip to the final four. Bobby currently has an amazing record of 15 wins 0 losses and 2 ties and earned first team all-league honors for his play.

With a minimum of 1 game left and a maximum of 5 for a possible state title, the Wildcats will hand over the rest of their season to one of the finest goalies in Northview history. To go along with his current season, he has amassed some of the best statistics in Northview history. His 50.5 wins currently rank 3rd all-time behind class of 1982’s Rocky Muzynski’s 62 and goaltending partner Craig Trego’s older brother Todd’s 52.5 class of 1997. He is also the all-time leader in shutouts for Northview with 14, and his 89.36 save percentage and 2.57 goals against average rank 2nd all-time. But as with the rest of the seniors he would gladly give up all of those personal accomplishments for a trip to the state final four.
His play on the ice has been rivaled only by his performance in the classroom and extracurricular activities. He has been very involved with the Young Life group and has become the spiritual leader of the team. His positive attitudes for his team, teammates and school have caused him to be held in high regard with all of those lucky enough to know him. Good luck in the future and with the rest of your senior year! A person of your character is bound to do special things.
