The Varsity team traveled to Canton, New York for the final contests of September to face off against Nichols in St. Lawrence University’s Appleton Arena. The boys went 2-0 and swept their prep school foe. The Huskies were victorious in the first game in overtime and won the second contest 4-2.  

The team started off the weekend with a tour of SLU from Northwood’s Alumni Will Arquiett ‘19. He has been playing at SLU for a couple of years now after graduating from Northwood. He took the team through the facilities and showed them what the school had to offer. At the end of the tour, they made their way into the varsity men’s hockey team’s locker room. The squad was all impressed to see the facilities for players at that level. It was inspiring for all of them, and a great shared moment for the team.

“Playing at Appleton Arena was a lot of fun,” said postgrad Bailey Bartholemew. “The rink had a great atmosphere, and I really liked the whole wooden arena. The ice was fast and nice to play on” added Bartholemew. “The rink matches the vibe of the whole campus, a rich old place that was still very clean and nice,” he added. 

Hayden Newman ‘24 also enjoyed playing at a collegiate facility. “I think that playing at the SLU arena was an enlightening experience. Getting to step onto the ice and play an actual game was really cool to me because one day I’d like to play at a high level just like what’s held on that rink.” 

The entire team was grateful to share such an enlightening and inspirational experience. What a great weekend for the boys. Something they will remember forever.
