PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
The Providence College women's ice hockey players hosted the first annual Road Hockey Rumble, Sunday, September 12, at the college's Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex. The street hockey tournament was the idea of junior defenseman Christie Jensen, and raised money for Children's Charities of Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
The Road Hockey Rumble featured teams consisting of Providence College students, faculty and staff. Each team was captained by members of the Friar women's ice hockey team. The winning squad was captained by junior goaltender Genevieve Lacasse (Scarborough, Ont.), graduate assistant Erin Normore and former Friar defenseman Brittany Simpson `09.
The event was inspired by the Friar Field Hockey Friendzy, an annual fundraiser organized by the Providence College Field Hockey program. The Friendzy is a field hockey tournament also designed to raise money for worthy causes and share its sport with the College community.
"I think it's important for the students to see athletes giving back," said Jensen before the event. "The better they get to know us, the more they'll support us when our season begins."
The Friars women's ice hockey team opens the season with an exhibition game against McGill University September 24, at Schneider Arena. Face-off is at 7 PM. For ticket information, call (401) 865-GOPC, or visit the ticket office in Alumni Hall.
