Hockey and basketball get green light for non-conference competition – The Suffolk Journal




It’s been almost a year since no official sporting events took place at Suffolk University, but that trend is finally over for most school winter sports teams.

Suffolk Athletics has announced a return-to-play plan for winter sports teams in a Press release of February 16. According to the statement, teams are now allowed to compete on a limited basis against non-conference teams. Men’s and women’s hockey, as well as men’s and women’s basketball, will have the opportunity to play after the Coastal Commonwealth Conference (CCC) initially canceled all conference competitions due to COVID-19 earlier this year.

All of the events in this shortened season will be events in the state that follow COVID-19 guidelines and take place without fans, the statement said. Every effort will be made to stream home games live for free. The schedule for each team will be published week by week.

Jeff Juron, the head coach of the men’s basketball team, is entering his sixth season as a coach while also serving as deputy director of Suffolk Athletics. After a long period without games, he is happy to see his team come back in action and on the court.

To the team’s credit, the practice has been focused and competitive. After a long layoff, everyone seems excited to be back at the gym together, Juron said of training together again before the announcement was made. As always, we are eager to prepare and perform by our standards, regardless of our opponent.

Chris Glionna, the head coach of men’s hockey, is entering his 17th season. With 130 victories in his career, he is the most successful coach in Suffolk history. His team has been working at this time since the fall.

I was amazed at how the team adjusted to everything that happened during the pandemic. Our fall semester, we had a good six weeks of training that ended with a series of three-game intrasquad scrums, Glionna said, ahead of the return to play announcement. When we came back for the semester of spring, we started with weeks of practice in small pods.

Peter Nugent, member of the men’s hockey team, shares the enthusiasm of his coaches.

I’m excited and can’t wait to grab the ice cream. It’s been a long time since we played in a competitive game and we can’t wait to release.

The women’s hockey team, led by Buffalo Beauts forward and head coach Taylor Wasylk, is also eager to return to the ice.

I’m super excited to be back on the ice with my team and trying to get into games, said junior hockey player Madison Scheinberg.

For some Rams, these games will be the first in a Suffolk uniform.

The transition from high school to college hasn’t been easy because of COVID, and not being able to play games hasn’t made it any easier, said first-year basketball player Amanda Deangelis. I am delighted to finally compete and do what I love for the first time in over a year.

The men’s hockey team will be the first Rams to return to play, as they face Becker College in a back-to-back series this weekend, Feb. 20-21. They will travel to Worcester on February 20 for the first round at 3:30 p.m. They will play their home game the following day at the Louis E. Porazzo Rink in East Boston at 1:10 p.m.
