    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Hockey – Rink Rats

Over the past few weeks some of the St. Scholastica baseball players have been lacing up. No, it’s not our cleats but rather our ice skates.With a lot of our guys coming from the Minnesota area, hockey was a major part of their lives. A few of them played in high school and are pretty darn good. The non-high school players often refer to themselves as “rink rats”. The term comes from all the indoor and outdoor rinks that people go to during the winter time to play pick up games of hockey with their friends.

Recently the CSS baseball team has been renting out the Cloquet Hockey Arena where two of our teammates work. Usually we get ice time around 9:15 p.m. and stay until about 11:30 p.m.  It is a good study break and a good reason to get homework done during the day so you can go skate. We usually have between 12 and 15 guys at each session. It is an absolute blast!

Ice hockey was not a big deal where I grew up in central Illinois. I do know how to skate. I am getting better. Last night I even scored a goal! We play so goals are counted if you hit the pipes on the goal. You will often hear the ping of the puck hitting the medal pipes, which tells us to celebrate like there is a big crowd watching! This is just one of the many activities that students will do during the winter.

There are many outdoor rinks and  few indoor rinks that get utilized by kids of all ages to go out and play some hockey. It is a lot of fun and worth a try if you like hockey.
