" first week back at school "

This week starts the first week back at school after a much needed spring break. 9 guys on the team and headed to Florida together to enjoy the warm weather and beaches that differ so much from the Fredonia weather. It was a week of leisure, fun, and more importantly a great bonding experience between the teammates. It made me realize how lucky we all are to be a part of a team where the friendships are so strong. I'm very excited to be with this group of Guys for another two years !!

The Roadie

The destination was set. The car was loaded. The task was daunting. But the boys. The boys were ready.
McAvoy, Morgan, Ross, and Freeman were road warriors on that fateful day.

The last week of school seemed to drag on forever, but as soon as we were done, we hit the road. Seventeen tedious hours from Fred-town to Panama City Beach, Florida, and we were determined to do it all in one leg. The first six hours passed effortlessly; filled with conversation, music and laughter. But as soon as the clock hit midnight, our first sign of trouble hit: food shortage. We had eaten all the snacks and were 22 miles from the next exit. Those miles crawled by, but soon the stockpile was replenished with Pringles and Kit-Kats, and the mood was back to celebratory. 

Problem 2 showed its ugly face at near 4 A.M. Ross had to use the lavatory, and we stopped for gas not but one hour ago. It was a tough decision that was not made without much deliberation, but we decided we had to cut a man loose. Ross broke the only rule: Not a single second of fun is to be wasted.

The third and final problem arose at a crucial part in the trip, the drive through Alabama. It was a torrential downpour outside and the drivers side windshield wiper flew clear off of its moorings! I was in the drivers seat, and the decision was made. The final three hours of the trip would be driven with my head outside the window. No. Fun. Wasted. 

Alas, we arrived at the pale blue water and the soft pillowy sand of Panama City Beach, where dreams are made, hearts are mended, and friendships strengthened. 

The boys made it and had an absolute blast. We caught a little sun, and had a lot of fun.

Today, is the last day before break!

Good morning Fredonia hockey fans!

Brandon Spognardi here checking in for yet another blog. Today, is the last day before break! I'm really excited to get back for a little time off from school and relax with the family. Just have to get by one more day of classes and then I'm on route to Philadelphia. 

School is a lot different without hockey. It's only been two weeks since the season ended and I'm already anxious for next year's season!

That's all I have for today! Till next time!

The boys have are headed south to Florida for a week....

Hey Devil fans! 

Todd Schauss here checking in before break; Spring break is right around the corner and speaking for the majority us students, we cannot wait! The boys have are headed south to Florida for a week for some much needed beach time and relaxation. A few of us are planning on bringing the golf clubs as well. It will be nice to get out early in the morning to head out for a round of 9 holes to get the day started. With break only a few days away, everyone has been cramming and putting most of their time into their studies for some last minute exams and assignments. One week from now we will be sitting on the beach catching some rays!

That's all i have for you today,

The countdown to spring break is down to 5....

Hello everyone, freshman forward Jacob Haynes here for another blog post. The countdown to spring break is down to 5 and I cannot wait. Even though I'm not going somewhere where it will be sunny and in the 80's, it'll still be good to have a break. It is weird having so much free time now that the season is over with so much free time. But this time next year we won't have this problem as we will be gearing up for NCAA Tournament. Until next time,

Hard getting used to the off season....

Hello Hockey fans,
Well the worst part of the year has been going on for a couple weeks now. These last few weeks have been strange because you don't see the boys every day. Usually you won't see every one throughout the week. The days drag on along with the weeks. Knowing this feeling I think its safe to say the boys will still want to be playing come next year at this time.

Nothing short of a SUNYAC Championship next year!

After a great first year of college hockey, I couldn't have asked for anything more. The memories made with the guys through the wins and losses will never be forgotten, and neither will the faces of the seniors who will be leaving us for better things to come. The off season is in full swing and its time to get back into the gym and train for next season. The goal for next year: Nothing short of a SUNYAC Championship.  - Tommy

Missing that 72 degree weather from last weekend......

Good afternoon Fredonia. Jon Carlson back on the blog. Missing that 72 degree weather from last weekend. Myself and team captain Hunter Long got out golfing last week, however that was a tease as the cold front has come back. Another week of classes until spring break. Looking forward to be able to relax for a week and not have to worry about classes. As always enjoy the rest of your day and stay warm.

The post season depression is in full effect....

Hey everyone! Freshman, Thomas Dunn here for another blog. The post season depression is in full effect, as there isn’t much going on here in Fredonia without hockey. As of now my days consist of just going to class and then heading to the gym. I’m excited to head home for Spring Break in about a week and a half; it’ll definitely be nice to see all my friends and family again. Hopefully some nice weather is headed our way up here.

Till next time,
