Hockey season comes to an end

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.
