Nichols College Men’s Ice Hockey had not only a successful season on the ice but in academics as well. The men’s ice hockey team saw 14 student-athletes named to the 2014-15 Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Northeast Academic All-Conference Team. For a student-athlete to be named to the ALL-Conference team, he or she has to earn a 3.0 GPA or higher for the semester.
The men’s ice hockey team had an amazing season this year. Going to the games became one of my favorite things to do from November to March. The excitement from the crowds was a good enough reason to attend. In addition, the fact that the team was back-to-back ECAC champions increased the level of excitement for the championship game and is something to be remembered. It was incredible to watch the entire team celebrate on the ice, and see some of the guys that I have been friends with for four years so happy.
The women’s ice hockey team also had a successful season with the majority of the team being placed on the Academic All-Conference Team. Eleven players on the Nichols College Women’s Ice Hockey team received the distinction, which was an increase from last year’s eight players. The hockey program here at Nichols has been excelling during these past two years, and as a student it has been a pleasure to watch these two teams succeed.
