Logitech Ice Hosts First Ever Interscholastic High School Hockey Game
/ San Jose Sharks
On Saturday, March 10, 2007, Logitech Ice at San Jose is proud to host the first ever interscholastic hockey game in Northern California as the Bellarmine Bells take on the Valley Christian Warriors in a Sharks/HP High School Hockey League game at 7:30pm. Admission to the game is free, although fans are encouraged to bring a canned food donation for 2nd Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara County.
The Sharks/HP High School Hockey League, now in its seventh season, is comprised of nine teams competing in two divisions. Most teams in the league are comprised of local hockey players from different high schools who are grouped together based on their geographic location. However, as interest in the league has grown over the years, both Valley Christian and Bellarmine have succeeded in recruiting enough players from their respective schools to field teams comprised entirely of their own constituencies.
“Since day one, the goal of the Sharks/HP High School Hockey League has been to increase the participation in ice hockey in each local high school in the area,” stated Robert Savoie, Director of Hockey at Logitech Ice. “Bellarmine and Valley Christian are the first to ‘ice’ teams consisting entirely of their own student bodies, and we hope that these teams will serve as models for other schools to follow.”
This game also marks the beginning of an annual competition between the two schools for a perpetual trophy to be established this year to commemorate the ongoing athletic rivalry between the two campuses. The winner of the season series will get their names on the trophy, which will reside at Logitech Ice at San Jose.
