The Hornets Youth Sled Hockey Team captured the National Championship title in Division 4 on Sunday, April 17, 2023 in St. Louis, Missouri at the USA Hockey Disabled Hockey Festival by defeating the Colorado Avalanche in a shootout 2-1.
The Hornets led for most of the game 1-0 until Colorado tied it up with less than 5 minutes to play. The game then went to overtime where no one scored. This was followed by a 3 player shootout where the Hornets finally outscored their opponent and took home the national crown.
Congratulations to all of the Hornet sled players and staff on being National Champions.
We in the Illinois hockey community are proud of your efforts
