While the team's historic season ended short of the Hine Cup, three student-athletes were named the 2023 All-Star Gnash High School Varsity Team — Jordin Palmeri '23, Ryan Barrett '24, and Nick Venable '24.

The High School combined hockey team with Brentwood Academy and Nashville Christian School ended its season on Monday, February 27 with a 1-3 loss to Centennial High School in the final game of the Hine Cup.
With a standing-room only crowd at Ford Ice, the atmosphere was electric. Jordin Palmeri '23 held off 25 shots with the help of his defensemen Benton Laird '23 and Nick Venable '24. Edward Crane '23, Ryan Barrett '24, and Aidan Ozgener '27 were excellent on offense.
The team's playoff run was impressive as these student-athletes fought their way to the Hine Cup final after suffering another earlier loss to Centennial. While the final score was not what the team had hoped for, this season was one of the best in USN hockey history. Way to go Tigers!
Congratulations go to Jordin, Ryan, and Nick who were named to the 2023 All-Star Gnash High School Varsity Team.
Following Thanksgiving Break, all exterior doors will remain locked when school is in session — as per state law (Tennessee Code § 49-6-817). All families, vendors, and other guests must ring the doorbell at the 19th Avenue entrance and present an ID to enter USN. We also will welcome Sgt. Anthony Jones and Cpl. Robert Gibson as School Resource Officers patrolling the Edgehill Campus and the River Campus.
The Artclectic 2023 chairs recruited talented committee volunteers, selected participating artists, solicited sponsors, planned parties, and ensured that there was something for everyone at our annual art show. The result: in its 27-year history, only two shows resulted in more sales than Artclectic 2023.
