Marquette goalie Jarboe picks Wentworth

Marquette Rangers goaltender Mike Jarboe has committed to play his college hockey next season in Boston at Division III Wentworth Institute of Technology, a member of the East Coast Athletic Conference Northeast Division.

The Grosse Pointe native came to Marquette from Wichita Falls at the trade deadline in February. He played in four games for Marquette and compiled a total record of 10-13-5 on the season between the Rangers and the Wildcats.

“This is the end of a long road for Mike,” said Rangers head coach Kenny Miller, who also coached Jarboe while the two were in Alpena in 2006-07. “Here’s a guy who had paid his dues and is ready to go on to the next level and contribute to their program. Everyone in our organization is happy for Mike and his family and we’re confident he’ll represent us and the league very well.”

Jarboe made his rounds the NAHL before ending his junior career in Marquette. He had previous stops in Bozeman, St. Louis, Alpena and Wichita Falls and becomes the sixth Rangers player from this year's roster to make a college commitment.
