Education notebook: Spokane Chiefs hockey players from Ferris named WHL academic achievers

The Western Hockey League has Ferris High School students Connor Gabruch and Cordel Larson as the Spokane Chiefs’ academic achievers for November and December.

Gabruch studies current world affairs, English, anatomy and physiology at a numerical grade of 95 percent, which is usually equivalent to a 4.0 grade-point average. He has maintained his high grades in his debut season with the Chiefs. He has played at least 29 games.

Larson studies English, anatomy and physiology as well, averaging a 91 percent numerical grade, which is usually equivalent to a 3.7 grade-point average. He played four games for the Chiefs during the 2017-18 season before opening the 2018-19 season, playing 36 games in which he posted seven points.

Each month from November through February, the WHL selects a student from each team who demonstrates ambition to reach his academic potential while balancing WHL commitments.
