The Baldwinsville Bees Varsity Ice Hockey team for 2009-2010 celebrated their senior teammates last Friday night with the annual Senior Night festivities. Seniors will graduate from high school this June and move on to colleges, trade schools, military or start their working careers. It was a large group of twelve seniors who skated out through a tunnel of hockey sticks held high by the underclassmen players.
Most had smiles on their faces, some were a bit apprehensive and all got a welcoming hug from their parents. The players had a rose for their parents to thank them for all the support in allowing them to play the game of ice hockey. Many starting when they were only 4 or 5 years old.
The game didn’t go the way Baldwinsville wanted. Ithaca took a 3 to 1 lead into the third period. Baldwinsville fought back and tied the game late. Using a borrowed Nikon D700 digital SLR camera and my Nikon 70-200 VR f/2.8 lens, I captured the moment:
Now, that’s Hockey! 🙂
