Spartan Boys Hockey practices in the Drake Arena every day after school in preparation for a busy season.

“We have 25 games a year. During January it becomes two or three games a week but it starts out slower, like one day a week,” sophomore Will Rathmanner said.

The boys season started Nov. 18.

Practice is about building endurance as the season grows more intense: “Our practices change throughout the week because our practices will be lighter if we have a game the next day. It all depends on what the schedule for the week is like,” sophomore Jake Hosszu said.

“Usually Friday practices are really hard,” sophomore Thomas Bagnoli added.

But with hard work comes some fun and games, and the team offsets their difficult practices with a healthy dose of team bonding.

“Before our weekend games we usually have a team dinner at someone’s house,” Hosszu said.
