Spartans, Past and Present, Gather for 2017 Club Ice Hockey Alumni Game

The St. Thomas Aquinas College Club Hockey team welcomed back players and coaches from the program's past with their annual Alumni Game at Sport-O-Rama on Friday night.

Spartan Hockey athletes representing the current 2017-18 squad and some of those who donned the maroon and gold for STAC from 2001 through 2016 hit the ice for a little friendly competition and bragging rights. Fans, parents, family and college staff members joined the teams in celebrating the program's history.

In the end, the alumni squad bested their friends from the current Spartan team, 5-4.
