This semester has flown by....

Hello blog world!

Frankie Hart here for his last blog of the school year. This semester has flown by, feels like no too long ago I was excited for the season to start. We have made a lot of progress in the last couple months, the team has put in motion a plan that will ensure we are ready to go next August. I am looking forward to the upcoming season. Being my senior year there is no better time then to win and achieve something great. 

I want to wish all the graduating seniors the best of luck in their upcoming year, whether they are playing hockey or stepping into the work force I know each and every one of these fellas will do great things. I will miss these guys and hope they come back and visit at some point!

Well I have an exam Friday, several projects and papers due next week so I should get back to it. Hope everyone has a great finals week.

Take care,

Last week of classes before finals so everyone's stress levels are at an all-time high...

Hello all,
Marcus Ortiz junior forward for your Fredonia Blue Devils Men's Ice Hockey team here with another edition of the Fredonia hockey blog. As the semester is winding down you can find most of the guys buried deep in the library or "the jungle" as you could call it. We are in our last week of classes before finals so everyone's stress levels are at an all-time high around here as we wind things down. 
 
On another note the NHL playoffs are officially in high gear which means we are a team divided all over the map, and while some sit high and mighty, other sit sore and disappointed (like Freemo and his Red Wings, or "dead wings"). All joking aside its nice to get away from school each night and meet up with some of the boys to watch the night's games although I'm sure I am not a pleasant person to be around when the Stars games are on. But as I was saying it's nice to get away from the stresses of school in the evening and meet up with the boys to watch the playoffs. 
 
Can't wait to get back for a nice, hot summer in Dallas next week!! See you all next season!!!!

I can't believe were on our last week of classes.....

Hey everyone Shawn Geary back on the blog here hope everyone had a fun weekend! I can't believe were on our last week of classes the year went by so fast I feel like I just got here yesterday! Finals are never a good time but Im looking forward to getting them done and enjoying my summer. The only bad part about the year being over is knowing the seniors won't be returning next year and man will they all be greatly missed. I know that they will be back to visit many times over the years but compared to seeing them everyday it will be an adjustment. Turkey season is in for the next month so me and a couple guys from the team have been getting out trying to tag a few but I unfortunately had to miss this mornings hunt due to the 24 hr bug I hope no one else gets sick this close to finals! Good luck to everyone the rest of the year! I hope y'all have a great summer and see you next year!

A good weekend....

Hey everyone,

Hunter Long checking in for another blog. Well this school year is windng down, and it seems that there is so much to do without enough time in the day to get it done. Busy and long weekend as we just completed Fred Fest. It was a little wet on Friday but Saturday was a beautiful day. During this celebration, the number of people you meet is crazy. I mean, it's a small enough school and people know of or have seen you, but when you bounce around from street to street everyone is so nice to each other and welcoming its nice to see here at this school. I must say the town police did an awesome job this weekend because there are many things that go on and they only stepped in when they had too. 

Longer,

Over and Out

HAPPY SATURDAY!!

HAPPY SATURDAY!!
 
Hello everyone this is Mackenzie McAvoy tuning into todays blog. Just want to start out and say the weather is finally starting to come along as its around 60 degrees here today. Unfortunately its cloudy today, however the sun does come out once in awhile.
 
Since we only have about two weeks left all the boys gathered together today, spend sometime with each other and watched hockey and had some burgers and dogs on the BBQ. So its nice that we were able to all get together today and hangout as a team.
 
This up coming week we have our annual senior banquet where we have a dinner, and say goodbye to them for a last time as a team, and also we get a nice homemade meal which never disapoints every year.
Since this is my last blog of the year I want to thank all the seniors for making my 3 years here so far, some of the best years of my life, and memories that i will never forget and always carry along with me and friendships that will last a lifetime.
 
Until next year,

My first year at Fredonia was one I’ll never forget and made 29 new brothers along the way....

Hello everyone, Rich DeMarco back on the blog for the last time of this school year. With only a week left of classes and then finals, I’ll be spending all my free time in a cubicle at the library. My first year at Fredonia was one I’ll never forget and made 29 new brothers along the way. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of guys to begin my college hockey career with. Living on my own for the first time was also an experience but I definitely have missed home cooked meals. As much as I can’t wait to go home, I’m also excited for the end of next August to come and begin our first step of many to reach the goals we have laid out as a team. Before I go I also wanted to take this time to congratulate Mike Kozlowski, better known as Koz, on his retirement and say thank you for everything you have done not only for the hockey team but all athletics, it’s truly appreciated. That’s it for my time on the blog; hope everyone has a safe and fun summer.

Thank you Koz....you have no idea how much we will miss you!

For over 30 years Mike Kozlowski has been a big part of the Fredonia Athletic Department.  Koz as he is known to everybody, is the heart and soul of Dods and Steele Hall.

His official title lists him as 'Launderer', but for those who knows him, Koz is the guy who makes sure everyone's games go off on time, are organized with event management, and that the officials are taken care of.  Additionally, he takes care of every teams equipment, orders, and inventories all the gear.  If I were to list each and every thing that Koz does, it would take pages.

I really think that we will not know the full scope of everything Koz does until he is gone and it is time for something to get done.  We will look at each other and wonder who was going to take care of that and then it will hit us....."Koz always took care of that".

Koz is retiring in July and we will truly miss him.  He is Fredonia Athletics and we wish him well in his retirement and the next stage of his life.  Thanks for everything Koz!
