ASCIS Opens New Indoor Shooting Range for Prep Hockey
In order to enhance training for our prep hockey teams, ASCIS has opened a new indoor shooting range. The facility provides a dedicated space for players to practice their shots in a convenient location. Hockey players can select where they would like to shoot the puck from, and can aim for specific targets to score on the goaltender. This will allow the athletes to improve their sharpshooting, which will help them score more goals on the ice. The opening of this shooting range reflects ASCIS’s dedication to developing its sports programs.
Santiago Shines At U20 World Championship
In a thrilling match at the Ice Hockey U20 World Championship in Sofia, Bulgaria, Santiago emerged as the stand-out player, earning the player of the game title. Facing off against Kyrgyzstan, Santiago showcased exceptional skill, determination, and sportsmanship, and contributed significantly to his team's success. Santiago boasted the 2nd best save percentage out of any goaltender in the entire tournament, with an impressive 89.44%. He also held the record for the most saves in this year's tournament, with an incredible total of 161 saves made. Great work, Santiago!
