Making the trip to Tampa was Union’s pep band. The Alumni Council, Student Forum and the President’s Office all chipped in to help seven students get to Tampa. Athletics provided them with game tickets. The band - Jake LaRocca ‘12, Vaishali Parkash ‘14, Jeremy Smith ‘14, Arianna Groveman ‘12, Philip Kretschmer ‘15, Katie Jordan ‘12 and Andrew Persson ‘12 - were set to perform the National Anthem. An hour before the game, they were camped out in front of the Fan Fest stage singing along with the music blaring from the speakers: Adele’s smash hit “Someone like you.” Perfect.
Chairman of the Board of Trustees Mark Walsh led Union fans in a cheer at a pregame pep rally at the center stage at Fan Fest. Borrowing a line from Coach Rick Bennett, Walsh asked the crowd over and over, “Why not Union?” Union’s mascot, Dutch, also fired up the crowd.
Gabriella Levine ‘14 and Tess Koman ‘13, co-editors of the Concordiensis, are blogging about Union’s appearance in the Frozen Four for The New York Times. The paper is using student correspondents from each school to post items. “Tess and I are thrilled to be presented with this opportunity,” said Levine. “It was made possible by the success of our hockey team and the high academic merit of our school.”
Wall of fame…Hanging from the Tampa Bay Times Forum is a five-story banner touting the Frozen Four, including an action shot of forward Jeremy Welsh.
"It was pretty neat to see," Welsh told the Tampa Bay Times. "We were driving in, and I looked up to check it out. And the guys got on me about looking up at it. I said, ‘You know what, guys? It’s not every day I see myself on the side of a building.’"
