Yale to hold celebration of NCAA hockey title at Ingalls Rink on Monday

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Yale will celebrate the school's first NCAA hockey championship with a rally at Ingalls Rink.

Monday's rally is set for 5 p.m.

The Bulldogs beat the three top seeds in this year's tournament to claim the title, including in-state rival Quinnipiac in Saturday's championship game.

The Elis beat the Bobcats 4-0 for the title, their first win in four games against Quinnipiac this season.

Yale has been playing hockey since 1896, but had reached the national semifinals just once before, in 1952.

The NCAA title is the first for the school in any sport since the swim team won one in 1953.

Quote of the Day
