The Lincoln Junior Stars hockey team was invited to represent Nebraska at the National High School Hockey Tournament in Dallas, Texas March 24-27. Included on the team roster was center Lucas Epperson of Minden.
Epperson began skating when he was three years old and developed an affection for hockey while regularly attending Tri-City Storm hockey games with his parents, Matthew and Chris, from a young age. He played with the Tri-City Jr. Storm through his freshman year and summer hockey with the Nebraska Trailblazers for three years. For the last three seasons, he has played for the Lincoln Junior Stars.
“I like the physical contact of the sport and I also like the fact that you have to be creative when you’re playing hockey. You make new plays every game and you don’t make the same plays too much,” Lucas said.
