  • Varsity Hockey Undefeated

    February 11  Congratulations to the RCS coed varsity hockey team for an impressive 8-0 finish this winter!

    “It was one of those magical seasons where everything just happened to fall into place,” Hockey Coach Lou Tocco said. “The majority of our players have been playing ice hockey for a long time and many are currently playing on travel teams. Players new to the game quickly acclimated. We had excellent goaltending, strong defense, and an extremely creative offense. Team cohesion was natural and players were motivated to assist their teammates in experiencing the joy of scoring goals. This can be attributed to ninth grader Bryce O’Brien leading by example. The unselfish act of looking to pass first and shoot second became contagious and the result was a team that can only be described as The Play-Making Team. Congratulations, team!”
