AU embraces first hockey season

Hockey Club

This winter season, AU launched its first year of co-ed club hockey. The AU hockey team, which practices at Fox Valley Ice Arena in Geneva, was started in part because of interest shown by players of the AU lacrosse team. Many of the athletes that joined the AU lacrosse team, which will be competing in its third season in the spring 2013 season, were former hockey players and expressed interest in bringing a hockey program to AU.
