McKENZIE — The Bethel Hockey squads kicks off their seasons in Missouri on October 25th. Big shoes have to be filled as both teams took home conference championships beating out Lindenwood for the first time ever in their programs history last year. Bethel’s second team took home the national championship title which was held for eight straight years by the Lions.
A combined mark of 80-20-4 by Coach Ryne Potts marks a resurgence in the hockey program during his tenure. Going into his third season he will focus on repeating set goals he put in place and accomplishing another national title for Bethel.
“Bringing back key players from our run last year is definitely a great starting point to work with,” said Potts. He added, “Top players in the league such as Kadin Ricciardi, Jack Mali, Nathan Sommerville, Jimmy Teed, and Noah Vanderbeck definitely gives me a safety belt to then add players around them to improve the team from top to bottom.
Though we will start the season with injuries, I am confident we will still make an impact with the additions we made this summer. I am always excited for the first weekend to see where the team stands and what things we can improve on to make a championship run.”
