Ice, Ice Baby!

  • All right stop. Collaborate and listen. To say that the Southview Ice Hockey team’s 2016-17 season ended on a sour note is a bit of an understatement. They were shellacked by eventual state runner-up and perennial high school hockey powerhouse St. Francis de Sales, 16-0. In fact, it was so bad that the zamboni only had to clean one half of the rink between periods…not really. The Cougars finished the season 2-9 in the league and 5-14-2 overall. However, in the words of Bob Dylan, “The times they are a changin’.”  After Sunday’s 3-2 victory over Maumee High School, the Cougars’ record stands at 7-2-1 in league play and 13-4-2 overall. The team was also crowned Champions of the Lake High School Winter Classic at Ottawa Park Ice Rink in January. Senior Sammy Vassar credits the turnaround on team chemistry and an overall positive attitude among his teammates. With two league contests remaining and currently sitting in second place, the Cougars have a legitimate shot to go from worst to first.
