Last night was “Senior Night” at Starr Rink and the final home hockey game of the regular season. Though there will be more games before the team is officially done for the season, every year at the last home game Colgate recognizes the graduating seniors.
On Senior Night, the senior athletes and team managers bring their families out on the ice to roaring crowds of fans and friends. For a small liberal arts university, Colgate has an immensely talented group of Division I athletes, and the hockey team is perhaps one of the strongest examples of the caliber of these students. Countless alums have gone on to NHL careers, and even more have gone into other sectors, using the skills they learned at Colgate to find success on and off the ice. But beyond that, there’s a spirit behind Colgate hockey that transforms the lives of athletes and fans alike. There’s nothing quite like walking into the rink on a snowy day, cheering for ‘Gate with your friends, and spending a weekend watching Division I hockey in Central New York.
