Let's Play Hockey magazine has released the 10 semifinalists for the 2020 Let's Play Hockey Minnesota high school girls hockey Senior Goalie of the Year. Faribault Falcons senior Mikayla Bohner is among those chosen.
Bohner is among the top goalies in each statistical category for goalies. She has 16 of Faribault's 18 victories in net, ranks 6th in the state in save percentage .937 and is 10th in goals against average 1.60.
