A well-earned victory

Dear Editor:Congratulations to the Aspen Skiers hockey team for their recent state championship! What a game it must have been, to win 1-0 against the No. 1 seeded team, Ralston Valley.You guys had an unforgettable tournament run. Even though our family could not make the game in Denver, our support was with you, and we knew you would fight hard and come out victorious! What an incredible feat it was for you, to hold off the charging Mustangs with only four defensemen, for the last period and a half. Congratulations to Kody Hornburg, for an amazing shutout win, and who was named Tournament MVP! Aspen Skiers also placed Nicky Anastas, and Simon Dolginow on the All Tournament Team.This is such a huge achievement for our little Aspen High School to come away with the High School Ice Hockey State Championship, and place three out of six players on the all-tournament team. Enjoy the win for a long time, guys, you worked your hearts out, and unquestionably earned the championship! You guys rock!Mike Tierney and familyAspen
