The hockey team’s thrilling season came to an end Wednesday (March 6) with a 7-3 loss to Brentwood in the state championship game.
Despite the loss, this season is certainly one to remember. The team -- 23 players from Hendersonville, Station Camp, Beech and Merrol Hyde high schools -- won its first GNASH (Greater Nashville Area Scholastic) Cup and finished second in the state, its best showing ever in the Predators Cup state competition.
“It was 7-3, but Brentwood got two empty-net goals,” said senior Cameron Stevens, who attended the game at the Ford Ice Center in Nashville.
Stevens described the student turnout and atmosphere in the arena as “incredible.”
“Both student sections (Hendersonville’s and Brentwood’s) were in one section, and HHS’ fans filled two-thirds of it,” Stevens estimated.
Even though the outcome wasn’t the one he and the other HHS fans wanted, it was still a historic season.
