While hockey is not a UIL sport, Lake Highlands has students who play for the Richardson Rampage, the club team for all of the RISD schools and John Paul II. The Rampage plays in the ATT Metro High School Hockey League. Playing in the Varsity Silver league, the Rampage is currently 11-8-1 in the East Division.

LH senior and team captain David Gwinn (pictured) said the team is about three-fourths through the season and looking to move up as the playoffs approach.

"The way that the hockey playoffs work differently than any other sport is the teams are re-seeded after every round," Gwinn said. "If we can move up from the middle of the pack to a higher seed for the playoffs, it can really help us."

Gwinn, who is a defenseman, isn’t the only player from Lake Highlands contributing to the team. Senior forward Michael Wren, junior forward Brad Moisan, junior goalie J.P. Billingsley and sophomore forward Patrick Ford are all in the starting rotation for the Rampage.

"We probably are second in the number of players we put on the team, right behind Berkner," Gwinn said.

The availability of ice time, plus the way the players are spread out geographically, makes for an interesting practice schedule.

"We have Monday practices from 10 to 12 at night, which isn’t the most fun time to practice, but we do it anyways," Gwinn said. "We also practice every other Wednesday and, when we don’t have a game, Saturdays."

The Rampage’s next game is Sunday against Plano Sr. Silver at 7:45 p.m. at the Farmers Branch Dr Pepper StarCenter.
