On January 5th, 2019, the varsity hockey team had their senior night against Holt. The team lost 4-0. This year’s seniors are Brett Wells, Drake Johnston, Jordan Clark, Sam Kenton, and Daniel Heinrich who is a pool player from Christian High School. Heinrich and Kenton have had a lot of great memories playing hockey, especially on FHN.

“My most memorable experience was gold cup my sophomore year. It was the first big hockey game I played in, and the stands being packed was really cool,” Kenton said. “I loved playing with kids I got to go to school with, it really created a friend group for me.”

 A lot of this year’s seniors have been playing hockey for a long time but don’t plan on playing after high school and will miss it very much.

“I’m really gonna miss playing hockey because it’s been a big part of my life.” Heinrich said

According to head coach Ryan Gannon, the seniors have really shined this season as leaders and have really grown throughout the years. Their coaches and teammates have really enjoyed them this season along with previous seasons.

“The seniors have done great, they’re great leaders on the team on and off the ice, and they really give it their all,” Gannon said. “I’m really proud of them for sticking with our program, it’s not easy to play the game of hockey, there’s injuries that happen from time to time and these guys just keep fighting through back and keep putting as much effort as they can.”
