Men’s Hockey Reunion

Men's hockey alumni gather in Erie, Pa. in Aug 2010. Thanks to Scott Burfoot '92 for the photo.

Earlier this month alumni from the men’s hockey program returned to Erie for a weekend of fun including an alumni game and a golf outing to benefit the hockey program. The event, organized with the help of the Director of Athletic Development John Melody, was held August 13-15 in Erie. The gathering kicked off with a reception at Boston’s on Peach Street Friday night, and the returnees took to the ice for a 9 a.m. alumni game on Saturday. Several hours later they were on the golf course, and finished the weekend with dinner and entertainment at Presque Isle Downs & Casino.

Rumor has it that one attendee remained true to his Mercyhurst roots and placed a wager on a horse named  “Religious Education” – a bet which made a pretty penny when the 13-to-1 horse won the race. Stay tuned to this blog for coverage of additional athletic reunion events scheduled for throughout the coming academic year.
