With more than 30 alumni, staff, faculty, and friends taking the ice on the new outdoor rink and dozens more cheering them on from the sidelines (along with faculty, friends, the Bobcat, and a few pooches), the Winni Classic returned to Brewster January 7. The event was sponsored by Wolfeboro's Lake Winni Team Realtors.
By all accounts, it was a great time, especially for the victorious White Team, led by former hockey coach TJ Palmer. The final score? 5-4. (The Blue Team played valiantly, but White got the win in the end!). Everyone enjoyed refreshments at the post-game reception in the Grayson Student Center in the Rogers Building. “I couldn't imagine a better day for this kind of event,” Director of Integrated Outreach Kris Light said. “The sun was shining, the ice was in great shape, and everyone seemed so happy to be back on campus and playing a game they love. Smiles everywhere you looked.” Mr. Light also noted that the exceptional work of our Facilities Team (especially Kyle Williams) made the game possible.
