Hockey set for new season

Fall 2012 : Liberty University Club Sports

Liberty University’s men’s Division I hockey team gears up for a challenging lineup this season, with a 34-game schedule featuring matchups with six teams who qualified for the 2012 national championships, including home meetings with the reigning national champions (Delaware) and last year’s runner-up (Oakland).

“We have a lot of quality opponents,” said Head Coach Kirk Handy. “We have a very strong schedule and there won’t be an easy night for us. It’s going to prepare us to go throughout the year and have every game mean something.”

The Flames finished the 2011-12 season with a 23-9-3 record and ranked 10th in the American Collegiate Hockey Association final rankings. The Flames made it to the second round of the national tournament.
