Boys Ice Hockey

Nothing screams winter like skates on ice. After a successful 2016-17 season, the Norwalk McMahon Boys Ice Hockey team returns for another winter on the ice. Last season, the team did not do as well as they had hoped. “We had a new coach and we were still getting used to his coaching style, but I think this season will definitely be better,” claimed Brien McMahon captain Remy Gibson (’18). Though the team had a losing record of 5-14-1, they still made it to States. “Our goals for the season are to make it to States again and end with a winning record,” claimed Norwalk captain Kevin Remson (’18).

A lot of work and preparation has gone into this season. “We have been doing pre-season training since the summer,” stated Remson, “We had workouts three times a week throughout the fall, including running and weights. Overall, I think we’ve really prepared ourselves for a good season.”

The team made their return to the ice in mid-November for their first practices. With all the preparation that has gone into this season, the four captains, Remson, Gibson, Brian Denke (’18) and Dylan Persons (’18)  are very enthusiastic for the upcoming season. “A lot of our starting defense graduated last year, but that just means that our other players need to step up and work hard, which I’m pretty confident that they can do,” Gibson explained.

As a co-op team with Brien McMahon, they do occasionally see some challenges. “Obviously we are rivals in almost every other sport, which we tease each other about sometimes,” said Gibson, “But, overall we are a family and we work really well together.” Whether you are a Bear or a Senator, come out and support the boys ice hockey team. Their first game takes place on December 27 at 8 PM at the Sono Ice House.
