On April 12, 2004, Thanks to everyone who contributed and participated to make this years alumni tournament an overwhelming success. (please see attached photo) Not only did we have a great time at Winterport and the post game party, we raised just over $3800 thru the proceeds from a raffle and the game. With those funds we will be able to officially create the “Archbishop Wood Alumni Ice Hockey” scholarship fund that will be given out annually to a student at Wood who is a member of the current ice hockey program. Congratulations to Rick Gallagher ’88 for being named MVP of this years tournament for the undefeated Green Alumni team comprised of former players from 1984 thru 1989. At the dinner former players Charlie Keener ’75, John Scavilla ’76 and Ray Reinl Jr. ’76 presented a special plaque to the founder of the Ice Hockey program at Wood, Mr. Raymond B. Reinl. The team also recognized Charlie Keener ’75 with the “Senior Participant Award”, Frank Reago ’81 with the “Spirit and Contribution Award” and Charlie Geib ’82 with the “Most Offensive Equipment” award.
Thanks again to everyone for making this event such a huge success and we look forward to having more former players join us next year. Even if you don’t play anymore please consider stopping by the rink or joining us the post game dinner. Any suggestions for next years games are welcome and appreciated. Please spread the word to ALL former players and remember that everyone is welcome. If someone has not been contacted it is because we don’t know how to reach them.
