I need your Varsity and/or JV Team Photo!!!


Gaining popularity, youth hockey in Sioux City required that the eligible age was again lowered to include Mite aged players (5-7).
Eight 5 year olds tip-toed on the ice that season and two of them, Duane Erickson (Metros Class of '87) and Brian Reynolds (Metros
Class of '87) became the first SYHA Players to go completely through the SYHA program.

The Metros participate for the first time in the annual Des Moines Invitational Tournament on January 18th & 19. Waterloo would
join the tournament as the third Iowa team as well as Albert lea & South St. Paul from Minnesota. They would make it to the final
game but lose to the hosts in a 7-6 barn-burner.

State Tournament is March 8th-11th in Des Moines, IA

consecutive wins at the state tournament, the Jr. Musketeers would get a chance at redemption against the (Waterloo) Columbus
Sailors in the championship game.

This Jr. Musketeers team was loaded with future USHL'ers; Dave & Clayton Wiffen, Brian & Brent Hartman, Mike Bennett, Paul
Kambach, Pat Pinney & Dan Reynolds. They were the only team in the league that might be able to beat the powerful Sailors,
unfortunately they fell short in their second bid at a championship.

Musketeer logo was removed and the jerseys worn sans any logo.

The Metros would finish the regular season with a 7-11 record and a sixth place finish. Clayton Wiffen again would lead the Metros in
scoring again this season with 32 points.

With a roster packed with future USHL'ers; Dan Reynolds, Pat Pinney, Clayton Wiffen, Mike Bennett, Brian Hartman & Paul Kambach,
the Metros entered tournament play as one of the favorites. Unfortunately, a questionable goal in the second round de-railed their hopes
at a first State Championship and they would have to settle for third place.

This would be the last season of Jr. Musketeer name. It would be changed the next season to reflect the overall make-up the team's
player base.

The Metros would return to the state tournament with a considerably smaller and less experienced line-up. However, strong goaltending
 and a speedy offence made up for lack of physicality and the team held their own throughout the tournament. Unfortunately, a second
round loss would send them home again with a third place finish
.

Note:
Name change to Sioux City Metro. This was done to help hockey players gain creditability as true high school athletes and to
have hockey accepted as an official  high school sport. Just like today,  players are not limited to the Sioux City boarders and represent
the surrounding metro area.

A policy change at the Auditorium regarding local event tenants caused SYHA to explore new avenues for ice time. In the Summer
of '81 an  inflatable Bubble was purchased and would be the new hone of SYHA hockey events. It was relocated from Jackson,
Tennessee to Sioux City where it was constructed and completed before the start of the new season.

This SYHA hockey season would start at the Bubble. An air filled dome that was always 20 degrees colder than outside, it was the only
indoor building that often carried a wind-chill factor!!!  This would be the home of SYHA & the Metros for only one season. A storm
the following summer would destroy the bubble.

After a third place showing at the State Tournament last season, the Metros return with only three seniors and finish the season with a
dismal 2-14 record.

games gone the other way. Despite the losing season, the Metros would place five honorable mention players on the All-State team.

Another trip to the Championship game and another second place finish. On paper, this team should have won!!! However, they
would return with almost the identical team the following season with different results.


The 90's would begin a run of Sioux City's dominance in the IHSH & MHSHL hockey leagues.

Starting in 88 & 90 with Championship runner-up trophies. The Metros return in both 1991 & 1992 with Championship wins. After a
Runner-up finish in 93, they again would win Champion status in 94. The Metro would go on to win two more championships in 98
& 99  and close-out the decade with a runner-up finish in 2000. They would again win the Championship in 2003.

The 1990's made for a Sioux City Championship streak that is by far tops in the IHSHL & MHSHL leagues. During those ten season the
Metros captured 2 Regular Season Championships & appeared in the State Championship game 8 times, winning the title five times.

The Metros slip a bit this season and finish fourth in the west with a 14-10 record. Daniel Davies would lead the scoring with
42 points while five other Metros scored 25 plus points. They would place three players in the All-Star Game and four on the All-State
Team and three in the Chicago Showcase.

By the time the championship game rolled around there wasn't a person in the house that didn't think the Metros wouldn't win their third
championship. They were so sure they placed commemorative three-peat patches on their jerseys BEFORE the game. Des Moines
Valley/Dowling didn't like the idea and beat the Metros 3-1. Note to self: Don't count chickens before they hatch

Also notable is the transition of coaches, Dave Davies would step down this season. Assistant Coach and another former Musketeer
Jimmy Peck would take the reins. His similar coaching philosophy would insure the continued dominance of Metros hockey.

The Metros finish the season with a disappointing 15-11 season and a third place finish in the west division. However, they still
would have seven players with All-Star selections, the most of any team in the league. They would muster a third place finish at
the State Tournament. Matt Andrews leads the team in regular season scoring with 24 points. They place seven players in the All-Star
Game, six on the All-State team and four in the Chicago Showcase.

At the time, this middle of the pack finish during the regular season & a third place showing at State is just that...however
as the big picture develops, it is a Sioux City program hearting up to begin the second part in what would become a
twelve season IHSHL High School dynasty

Sioux City Metros Jr. Varsity

The Junior Varsity would win the regular season championship this season, setting the table for two unprecedented championship
weekends next March in Sioux City and St. Joe

The JV team tops the league with a 20-2-4 record and records the JV's first League championship. They place five scorers (Matt
Tonjum, Dusty Browning, Brant Mozak, Dustin White and Robbie Lessard) among the top ten league scorers.

JV State Tournament held February 26th-March 1st in St. Joe, MS

SYHA would start off the season in their own building. The 2.5 million dollar IBP Ice Center opened for youth and high school
practices. The new facility featured a NHL sized playing surface, four locker-rooms, coaches & referee rooms, pro shop and a
concession and large lobby area. The new building allowed SYHA to again begin to promote the program. For a number of years
no new players were allowed to join due to the limited practice and game times.

 

Did You Know...the orange seats currently in the IBP Ice Center were from the Auditorium.  Originally, the removable seats, "C" section,
These were the seats that folded in-out in front of the Balcony section.

The Metros would finish the season second place in the west and tied for fourth in the 12 team league. Offence was the theme as the
Metros poured in 163 goals in just 20 regular season games. For the second time, Kyle Worner would lead the Metros in scoring while nine
other players would tally 20 plus points. Kyle Worner is a top ten league scorer as is Jake Hinderman as top ten league goaltender.

The Metros would continue their winning way and capture another IHSHL Championship, their fifth in nine seasons.
The Metros would start out the tournament with a convincing 6-1 win over the Waterloo Warriors.  Like the JV team the week before,
they found themselves paired up with the top seeded Des Moines Capitols. However, the Metros would come from behind to win in 
an exciting 7-6 victory. The championship game took extra periods but the Metros defeated the Kansas City Jr. Blades 3-2
Kyle Worner scored two Metro goals and added an assist to Trent Mozak's game winner in the second overtime.

In their second chance in the same decade, the Metros have a chance at a State Championship Three-pete, however they would

With only two returning seniors, the Metros did still better their total wins and ended the season with an 11-14-2-1 record. They would grab the
seventh seed in the League tournament but bow out with losses to the DM and Mason City.

Leading scorer Skyler Beller would receive All-Star designation and be selected to play for Team Midwest in the America's Hockey Showcase
Tournament in Pittsburgh, PA. Metros second leading scorer Tanner Frerichs would also be honored as a MHSHL Team
West leading forward.  Beller and Frerichs both place among the top five scorers in the league with 44 regular season points.


The Metros JV squad finishes the season with a 14-14 record and a trip the League tournament. A first round win over favorite Dubuque made for
the start of a hopeful weekend, but losses to Kansas City and Des Moines left the Metros with a 6th place finish.

The Metros start the season with a win over the Oak Leafs and a very close contest the next week with the league leading and eventually
undefeated Des Moines Capitols, however, the Metros have a tough time maintaining the momentum and finished the season
with a 14-12-1-1- record, a third place finish in the west and a 6th place finish overall.

That sixth place finish does qualify them for the League Tournament where the Metros defeat Dubuque in the first round but fall to the eventual
champions Kansas City. In the Consolation game they would defeat a heavily favored Des Moines Oak Leafs in a shoot-out for Sioux City's
first showing in the League tournament in fourteen years. Skyler Beller scores a goal and and James Page two more in regulation and
Connor Sands shoot-out goal wins it for the Metros.  

Skyler Beller joins former Metros players Brian Hartman (74-78) Clayton Wiffen (78-81) and Kevin Lohry (02-05) as the only
four Jr. Musketeers/Metro players to lead the team in scoring for three consecutive seasons. (Brian Hartman did it four times)
