All-Met Watch

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Chalk one more up for the snow. With two local teams playing just one game in recent weeks, some star players have not had much of a chance to shine, prompting changes atop this week's All-Met Watch. KIMA forward Jonathan Arledge has been steady all season despite getting plenty of attention from opposing defenses and rejoins the top unit for the first time since the preseason. Statistics and records are through Sunday.
