Arrowhead boys hockey coach Carl Valimont has been singing the praises of his top two defensemen, senior Elijah Tormala and junior Dylan Cox, all season long.

Since the incredible AHS season started back in the November, Valimont, a standout for the Milwaukee Admirals for years, has said that in his judgement, Tormala and Cox are the top two defensemen on the same team in the state.

It's difficult to argue with.

Led by Tormala and Cox, the Warhawks have not only put together one of the best records (21-2-1) in the state but also one of the best in school history. The only team with fewer losses ever at Arrowhead came in 2002-03 when the Warhawks won a school record 20 games in a row and finished the year at 20-1-1. Arrowhead has given up just 1.5 goals per game while scoring 145.
