St. Joseph Immaculate Heart of Mary School was among other area schools who attended a Phantoms hockey game on Feb. 27 at the Covelli Center.
Students were able to watch a hockey game, as well as learn the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle. During the game, video clips were shown promoting exercise and healthy eating. Everyone in attendance danced, bumped and tossed beach balls through the crowd.
It was a special day for Cadence Pounds and Isabella Herner, who celebrated her birthday at the game. Pounds was announced with the Phantoms starting line-up because she is a member of a Phantoms youth hockey league team. Herner shared her birthday celebration with classmate Dante Walker, giving him her ride on the Zamboni between the first and second periods of the game.
“That was awesome,” said Walker, when asked about the ride.
Fourth-grader Patrick Faloon represented SJIHM in the race of cars between the first and second periods. Each school had a student drive a mini-car on the ice around the rick. Some students’ cars, including Faloon’s needed Phantoms cheerleaders’ power.
