Phillips commits to Marian University

Waywayseecappo Wolverines 2019/20 MVP, Conrad Phillips has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey for Marian University in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.

Phillips has played three seasons with the Wolverines, including having an impressive 10 game stint during the 2020/21 shortened season putting up 8 goals and 11 points. It was also his second season as an Alternate Captain .

Phillips now a graduating player, has decided on the Marian Sabres in the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association. He will be joining a few former Wolverine players such as Anthony Bilka, Ty Enns and Brady Pupp who have suited up for the Sabres this season.

“(Bilka) said he liked Marian University, so it made an easy decision for me to join the club for next season,” said Phillips.

As a veteran in the MJHL, Phillips says spending the past three seasons as a Wolverine and playing in the league has prepared him for the opportunity to take the next step.

“I kept on improving each season and I realized that I could be a key player for my team,” said Phillips. “I think the development in this league really set me up well the future.”

Wolverines Head Coach Taylor Harnett says Marian University will be adding a quality individual.

“I have had the pleasure of knowing Conrad and his family for five years. He has been a true ambassador for the Waywayseecappo Wolverines,” says Harnett.

“He has been an exceptional teammate and he came to the rink every day with a great work ethic, and always gave us his best. The Wolverines are extremely excited for Conrad.”

Phillips says he can’t wait to go play hockey and attend school in the United States and is ready for where it will take him.

“I’m pretty excited to be taking Sports Management for my program, it’s something I’ve been looking forward to for a while” said Phillips. “It’s a new chapter in my life, and I’m ready for it.”

The Wolverines would like to congratulate Conrad Phillips on this great accomplishment, and thank him for everything he has done for the organization.
