New Record Holders in North Carolina and Kentucky
George Kalos Sets Record
Hough (N.C.) senior George Kalos set the North Carolina record for career face-off wins in addition to setting a new season mark.
For the season, Kalos won 375 at an 88 percent clip. His 375 wins broke the previously reported record of 303 by Adam Shea (Page) in 2018.
His season total put him at 997 career wins (82.7 win percentage), breaking the previous record held by Graham Schwartz (Middle Creek).
Kalos and Schwartz are the only two players in state history reported to have won at least 900 career faceoffs.
Kalos’ faceoff total places him among the top players of all time at his position. Only nine players have been reported to have won at least 1,000 face-offs. Kalos’ total places him at No. 10 at the time of this writing.
The all-time leader for face-off wins is former Penn Charter (Pa.) star Gavin Tygh who won 1,297 faceoffs in his career.
Kentucky’s New Leader
Spencer Pruden, a senior at Lexington Christian (Ky.), set a new state record for career saves. Pruden set the record with 697 saves, breaking the previously reported record of 683 set by Garrett Feriell (Louisville Male) from 2016 to 2018.
The record-setting game happened on May 13 against South Warren (Ky.). Pruden posted 21 saves in a 7-5 loss to push him past Feriell’s record. The game was Pruden’s third game of at least 20 saves this season.
The senior has 211 saves this season. In each of his three full seasons, the senior has posted at least 200 saves. During the shortened 2020 season he posted 25 saves in the team’s only game - a 7-6 win over Scott County (Ky.).
Vikings Coach’s Final Game
Hoggard (N.C.) Head Coach Steve Treman coached his final game for the Vikings with a 15-8 loss to Cardinal Gibbons (N.C.) on May 12 in the NCHSAA Class 4A quarterfinals. Treman has been Hoggard’s coach since 2007 and led the team to 231 victories.
The Vikings won at least 10 games in all but two seasons during Treman’s tenure. The team went 9-8 in 2013 and went 3-0 during the COVID-shortened 2020 season.
Treman was 231-53 at Hoggard and is among the state’s all-time win leaders.
