More than a victory

Dear Editor:As a founder of the Junior Hockey Program, I want to add one more voice of congratulations to the Aspen High School boys hockey team and their coaches, Al Butler and Chris Lochrem. Who would have ever thought a small town recreational program would end up with the state championship!After almost 60 years of hockey from ponds to national arenas, and back to ponds, I never achieved a title like yours. But, as I look back, the years – all of them – have been full of fun, teamwork, heart and wonderful friendships.My hope for all of you is to experience the same. May your remarkable victory be more than a victory. May it be a huge stepping stone to a lifetime of fun and friends through hockey.Best wishes and don’t forget to backcheck!John McBrideAspen
