Bantam Tier 1 Triumphs at Denver Tournament

Bantam victory 12_14_14

The Boys Bantam Tier 1 Hockey team had an exciting weekend of hockey in Denver at the Super2K Series, December 12-14. They lost a lead in the third period of their first game to take a challenging defeat, but knew they had to win out in order to play for the championship on Sunday. They certainly rose to the occasion with a gritty win on Friday night in front of alumni in an outstanding outdoor game at the Denver Country Club. Saturday  morning the boys played arguably their best game all year to beat a very good team from British Columbia 7-4 in a much needed total team effort. Saturday night saw a 7-0 win, which was enough to get into the championship game and face-off against the Pursuit of Excellence team again in an opportunity for retribution against the team that beat them in game one. The championship was decided in an overtime shootout with Thomas Lalonde ’18 stopping two of the three shooters he faced and Oliver Wahlstrom ’18 scoring a goal and setting up TJ Walsh ’18 with his opportunity to be the hero and send the team and parents home happy with a championship banner in tow.

“This was a fantastic weekend for the kids, and they certainly earned this championship,” said Coach Mike Carpentier ’00. “They had the opportunity to have former SSM coach and Athletic Director John Sumner on the bench to help guide them and keep them calm in the face of some adversity. The coaching staff is extremely proud of the team. This is the exclamation point that we all wanted going into the Holiday Break.”

Vocal Performance Students Shine in Hansel & Gretel Opera

Hansel and Gretel
This November, two SSM Vocal Performance students participated in the Minnesota Opera’s production of Hansel & Gretel. MacKenzie Clymer ’18 and Lisa Lilyerd ’19 were part of the children’s ensemble and played various roles, including gingerbread children and depression children. Mackenzie wrote this about her experience, “We had people come from New York and Texas to be in this production. It was an absolute privilege working with such professional singers! They used such expression in the roles. I know when people come to watch these productions, they are entranced by the staging. Until you look out from the other end of the stage called the ‘singers view,’ you don’t know what real magic looks like. The walls of the inside of the theatre are caressed by golden paint, that shines and looks like a million stars are right in front of your eyes. It was beautiful and I can never shake the feeling of belonging anywhere else. I hope in the future more people in Vocal Performance can experience what I did every performance. A sense of true beauty and magic, and the sound of hard work coming into something graceful and entrancing.”
