Middlebury College Hosts Celebration for Men's Hockey Champions

Middlebury College will hold a celebration in honor of its championship men's hockey team on Friday, April 3 at 7 p.m. in Pepin Gymnasium on Route 30. Members of the College team will meet and "talk hockey" with the area's younger hockey players-members of the Middlebury Area Hockey Association, and other hockey fans and friends. The College invites the whole community to join together in a celebration of the Middlebury Panthers' recent record-breaking fourth straight win in the NCAA championships. Team photos will be available and players will be on hand for autographs. The event also will include light refreshments and the team's presentation of the 1998 NCAA Division III championship trophy to John McCardell, the president of Middlebury College. Fans are encouraged to show their team spirit and wear hockey jerseys.

The celebration is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact the Middlebury College public affairs office at 802-443-5198.
