Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter and the Islip Town Board honored the East Islip Chiefs Hockey Team at the May Town Board Meeting for their history-making season.
Last year, the Chiefs Hockey Team made club history when they won Gold at the prestigious CAN/AM Championship in Lake Placid. This year, they made club history by securing a place competing at the 2023 Chipotle-USA Hockey High School National Championships in Plymouth, Minnesota.
Under the leadership of Head Coach James Sutton and Assistant Coaches Nicholas Campo, Joe D’Addario, Rob Bentrewicz, and Eric Miklich; the Chiefs competed in the Division II USA Bracket of the Tournament, prior to being eliminated in the final preliminary game against Prep Hockey.
“To have come so far and made club history speaks to the team’s talent, dedication and discipline, and our entire community is proud to see Islip’s own reach this level of excellence in the hockey arena,” said Supervisor Carpenter.
Congratulations to all the players and coaches!
