Ice dreams: A night with the ONU club hockey team

Feb 11, 2018 - Comments: 0

It’s 9:30 p.m. on a Tuesday night in late January as a silver Ram 1500 pickup truck burns down the highway, headed North on I-75 from Ada to Findlay.

In the vehicle are four members of Ohio Northern’s last remaining undefeated sports team, club or varsity. In the truck bed are their equipment bags, replete with sticks and skates and hefty shoulder pads, open to the relentless winter air as it whizzes by.

The team’s mettle will be tested tonight by an assemblage of men and women, most over 40 years old, who are also undefeated.
