The Pacelli hockey team has won 10 of their last 13 games. Large part to that success is senior Luke Yenter, and he is our Newsline 9 Athlete of the Week.

Senior Luke Yenter holds the schools all time career scoring record with 86 goals and 80 assists. "It feels really amazing cause the person that broke the record he's a really good hockey player and i just can't even imagine being that good so it was kind of a shock when i realized wait i have a chance."

Yenter developed a passion for hockey after watching his older brother and sister play. "I just wanted to be just like them and then my brother would go down with me in the basement and we'd go play in the drive way, he's really helped me."

On Tuesday Pacelli lost to Wausau East, but even through the tough loses, Yenter lays it all out on the ice every game.

"Just the desire to win I guess, it makes it easy when you want to win."
