History of the Tournament

The first tournament took place January 2-4, 1949. It replaced the Northwood School Tournament held for several years at Lake Placid, NY before the Second World War. The first participants were: Andover, Choate, Exeter, Lawrenceville, Hill, Nichols, Northwood, and Peddie. Nichols defeated Exeter 3-2 in the championship game. The tournament was started by the Friends of Princeton Hockey and Lawrenceville graduate Carl Erdman '1915 was the leader. "Carl really got the tournament started," said Larry Tiihonen, who was the Lawrenceville Director of Athletics from 1934 to 1966.
Through House and Harkness, Lawrenceville challenges a diverse community of promising young people to lead lives of learning, integrity, and high purpose.  Our mission is to inspire the best in each to seek the best for all.
