Crimson Tide starting defenseman Kaleigh Snook comes from a long line of EHS hockey alumni, and though she’s the only female on the list, she’s just one of the guys when on the ice.
“I first started at about 2-3 years old and evolved from there,” said EHS junior Kaleigh Snook on where this playing hockey thing all started for her.
Her father, Chris Snook, is a class of 86’ alumni who played hockey for the Tide. His brother, John Snook, a class of 77’ alumni, was a former hockey all-star at EHS. Kaleigh’s two brothers, Ryan (17’) and Nick (19’) also played defenseman for the Tide. So It’s safe to say Kaleigh’s had ice running in her veins since she was born.
“Hockey has been in the family,” said Chris Snook, who coached all three of his children during the developmental youth league years and is proud that hockey has become synonymous with Snook in Everett.
