Jessica Connelly

Class of 2003

Jessica has taken the beginning years of the CVU girl's ice hockey team to the state championship and title within 2 years. She worked hard as an assistant captain, and as starting goaltender to obtain a career acheivement of 1000+ saves. Even though there were some rough games, Jessica never bad talked herself or the team. She was always there to help the other team mates get back up and keep trying, and she was such a good friend. The most memorable time I remember Jessica was the championship game against Northfield high school. With only a few minutes left in the game, Jessica was trying her best to keep her shutout, as well as CVU's one goal lead. She was plowed into by a girl from the opposing team, and had the wind knocked out of her real bad. It seemed to take forever to for her to get back up, and when she did it was obvious she was hurting. But she never let it get to her. She said to the coaches "I'm going to finish what I started" and kept on playing. CVU beat Northfield for the State Champions title 1-0, the only shutout she had for the whole season. When the newscrew wanted to interview her, tears came out of her eyes and it was obvious she was in shock. She said her few words to the crew, then told them she had to get back and celebrate with the team. She always put her team first. It was the most wonderful thing to see her carry that flag one of the fans made around the ice. After the game, she even got the game puck and the MVP award for the whole state tournament. Jessica told me after that she was going to remember that game for the rest of her life. I think anyone who watched her play in high school and that final game will always remember that.
