Coach Jackson thanks students

Letter to the Editor | Thursday, March 5, 2009

Dear Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s and Holy Cross College Students:

Throughout this hockey season, one of our team’s greatest inspirations has been the enthusiasm of their fellow students in section six. Because of your vocal support, the Joyce Center has become a tough venue for opposing teams to enter, and you have given us a great home ice advantage all season. Now that our regular season has ended, we need your continued support as we enter tournament time. Our team has earned a first-round bye in the CCHA tournament, but we will host the second round at the Joyce Center March 13-15. If your spring break plans allow it, I encourage you to come to the games and to prove once again that we have one of the best student sections in all of college hockey. In addition, 250 tickets for Sunday’s (if necessary) game will be issued in the Dooley Room of LaFortune from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. today. The remainder of the tickets will be given out at 6 p.m. on March 15 on a first come, first serve basis. Thank you for your support all season, and we hope to see you at the Joyce Center for the CCHA Tournament.

Go Irish!

Jeff Jackson
