Hinsdale Central Alums Rally To Beat Undergrads
In Game Enjoyed By All
It was a hard fought battle with the Alumni turning the tide on the undergrads with a giant 3rd period. Alumni goaltender, Byron Tsokolas, set the momentum, turning back repeat salvos by the under grads and secret weapon Coach Tselios to keep the game alive for the alumni.
Off the ice, there was plenty of support, with families and players reuniting with managers, coaches and parents to celebrate bonds fostered over years of shared wins and losses. For parents of recent graduates, it was a chance to reflect on the kinship built through years of support. For others, like graduate Byron Tsokolas, it was a chance to show younger brother Athan that he could still skate with the best of them. Others highlighted the memories of league victories and qualifying wins in the State Championship Tournament.
Some grads are now playing at the college level. Others are playing Junior hockey. Asked about the takeaways from their high school hockey years, some cited friendships, others improved discipline, others the benefits of fitness they hoped to maintain. Tyler Lovelace(‘15), who plays rec. league hockey at Notre Dame, highlighted the friendships and how his hockey experience helps in team activities like engineering class projects where you need to quickly learn to work with the strengths and weaknesses in your team to excel with theassignments.
Congrats to the alumni on their victory and thank you to all the team managers present and past who have helped to support the program and the players. It was great to see how well you are remembered and appreciated.
Every year, around Christmas Break, the club hosts an Alumni game for all HCHC alumni. Starting 2014, we send out an ALL CLUB email to everyone associated with HCHC on NGIN. If you weren't on the team when we had this website, please create an NGIN account associated with the club if you want to receive these emails. For instructions to do this, click here. (You can also do this if you are a more recent grad and want to make sure you get the email instead of your parents.)
Starting each fall, dates and details on the Alumni Game will be posted on the Home Page of this website.
If you have any pictures you'd like to share of your time playing with the club, send us those too!
