Outdoor hockey event
unique for Bulldogs

by SHARON JENUWINEThe Romeo varsity hockey team will be playing in its first ever outdoor hockey game on Saturday, Jan. 26, against the Dakota Cougars at 5:45 p.m. at Clark Park in Detroit.
The Bulldogs have had a strong season. With their record currently at 9-2, they hope to continue the momentum as they face one of their biggest challenges of the season — the undefeated Cougars.
The Bulldogs have a busy week as they prepare for the outdoor game after just finishing another big event when they hosted the Charity Cancer game this past weekend.
Assistant Coach John Sloane is looking forward to the outdoor game but doesn't feel pressured by Dakota's record.
"I'm not worried about what they do, but what we do," he said. "It's fun to be ranked higher, but I don't pay attention and buy into all the hype."
The Bulldog captains see this as a huge opportunity, as senior Cam Gillem, junior Hunter Jenuwine, senior Kyle Nedbal, and senior Adam Soboleski discussed the upcoming game while shooting a public service announcement commercial for the hockey team. All four captains have been playing hockey for at least 11 years and see this as one of the biggest games for themselves and their teammates.
"This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play outdoors," said Soboleski. "There aren't many chances to do this, so we're going to take advantage of it while we are here," Gillem said. "It's a once-in-a-lifetime game and it's against one of Romeo's biggest rivals."
The Bulldogs know they have a tough competitor in Dakota, but see an opportunity to show their team strengths.
"It really gives us a chance to show how good we are, how talented we are against undefeated Dakota, who is number one in the MAC," said Nedbal.
Jenuwine agreed, and added, "This will be some good advertising for Romeo hockey, too. A lot of people know about it and hopefully will be going to the game."
The Bulldogs want their fans to come out to the game and the Romeo High School Athletic Department is encouraging spectators by providing transportation for the game at a cost of $8 per person including the game entrance fee.
