The boys varsity hockey team’s playlist contains songs like “Money in the Grave” by Drake and Rick Ross and “Ice Cream Truck” by Montana of 300.

The boys’ varsity hockey team took home the Warrior Turkey Tournament this past weekend. To start the tournament, the Spartans defeated Somerset 6-1 with ninth-grader Ian Johnson getting his first win as a goalie. The team would then take down the hosts Sibley, winning 9-4 to take home the championship. With this, the Spartans improved to 3-1 on the season.  

Since the beginning of the year, the team has used a playlist that solely contains rap music from the likes of Lil Wayne and Kanye West. Senior captain Will Rathmanner was tasked with creating this playlist. “I wanted to make a playlist that could pump us up before each game and I think that the team likes it,” he said. “Without a doubt, my favorite song on it is ‘Follow God’ by Kanye West.” 

Junior defenseman Michael Bagnoli said, “The playlist really gets the boys going, my favorite song is ‘I Like Girls’ by PnB Rock and Lil Skies.”

The Spartans’ next game is at home this Tuesday when they take on Northfield (1-1).

A full version of the playlist is available to stream on Spotify.
