Coach Plunkett's 900th Win

On Saturday, February 3, 2013, the Bulldogs beat the Arctic Foxes 6-3 to give Coach Plunkett his 900th victory of his Bulldog career.  This is Coach Plunkett's 27th season coaching the Bulldogs.  He has logged eight PIHL state championships, the first coming in 1986-87 in Class AA.  Two years later, the Bulldogs won their first Class AA title.  Then in 1991-92, the team won the first of five straight titles.

The last state championship came in 2002-03, which also marked the only year the team won its own Invitational.  The Bulldogs made it to the finals two other times before the 2002-03 season, losing both times.  The Bulldogs won 3-2 in double overtime against St. Ignatius, which has the most Bulldog Invitational titles.
