Ice hockey is a fairly new high school sport in the state of West Virginia. Six high schools field teams, all of which are located in the northern portion of the state, and all compete in the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League.
Morgantown High School and University High School combine during the regular season to form one team, but for playoffs they are forced to separate into their respective schools.
Competition format Edit
West Virginia has no organized league, and all five teams participate in Western Pennsylvania in the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League. Starting in 2005, a state championship began featuring all of the state's teams. In the first championship was held in 2005, Wheeling Park defeating Wheeling Central Catholic 2-1.
