JCU Men’s Hockey wins 1st CHMA Conference Title
The JCU men’s hockey team has accomplished the feat of winning their conference title. CHMA is an American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) Division I club ice hockey conference. The team participated in the ACHA national tournament in Bensenville, Illinois. JCU entered the tournament as the #20 seed and faced off against Liberty University on Friday, March 1st, losing 7-1.
The program has been focused on serving those off the ice this winter as well, partnering with the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and The Lerner School of Autism by working with autistic students and raising awareness through raffles and donations.
The annual GUTS! late night program held on November 17, presented by the Recreation and Intramurals Department, challenges students to complete a series of daunting tasks in order to win the ultimate prize of the Aggro-Crag and coveted Intramural t-shirt. This year, 20 teams (an increase of four teams in 2011) of four participants each (two males and two females) participated. Students in the competition made their way through mental, physical, and team-building activities throughout the entire RecPlex. The Recreation and intramural student supervisors and student employees assisted in making this night a success by organizing materials, planning events, and training staff.
Club Sports Give Back
In December, with the Club Sport Council executive board leading the way, several members of club sports participated in a canned food and blanket drive to support Cleveland Catholic Charities’ Migration and Refugee Services and the JCU Labre program. Over 300 canned goods were donated and approximately 30 blankets were made, collected, and donated to the cause. Club Sports is also currently planning a Spring community service event.
