Fans packed the seats for our adapted hockey team's first home game of the 2022-23 season! Spuds head coach Heidi Fisher said the sport helps connect the athletes with each other and their surroundings. “You see friendships building and peers supporting each other with their games,” Fisher said. “It gives them something to have and gives them meaning. They’re more connected to the school through the sport aspect. It’s just really neat.” https://www.inforum.com/sports/prep/community-behind-floor-hockey-team
