Hockey victorious, takes championship

The men’s hockey team played last weekend in the Michigan Collegiate Hockey Conference Championships (UCHC), battling Grand Valley State University on Friday and University of Michigan on Saturday. The team went into the championship with a record full of strong wins at 16-1-1, with one conference loss against Grand Valley in January. The team didn’t let their previous loss stop them from crushing Grand Valley in a 7-2 win on Friday, advancing them to the championship game on Saturday.

They faced off against Michigan, whom they had also lost to twice in October in non-conference play. The Flying Dutchmen played hard for another win at 5-3 for the conference title! The team relied on their depth of talent to take the wins. Points were spread evenly across the players. They had a similar performance the night before, with two players scoring two points each. The others were spread across the team. Earlier in the season the team took the MCHC West Division title when they shut out Western Michigan University 12-0. With an impressive season record of 26-3-1, the team now moves to play in the American Collegiate Hockey Association regional tournament this weekend at the Suburban East Lansing Ice Arena. Wish them luck!
