The LPS Heritage hockey teams kicked off their 2017-18 winter CHSAA this past weekend.

On Friday, December 1st, the varsity team started their season strong beating Pine Creek 9-1 at S

outh Suburban Ice Arena. Scoring continuously happened throughout the game and Heritage never stopped working hard. Arapahoe players included Nick Bales, Cole Trautman, and Max Yates. The following day, Heritage took on Castle View at Big Bear Arena. Heritage won 4-2.

Junior varsity started their season December 2nd against Cherry Creek at Ice Ranch. After a slow start in the first period with no score on either side, Creek pulled ahead and beat Heritage 5-0. This, however, was expected. Arapahoe players included Jack Ambrose, Bo Frederickson, Nikolay Haleskiy, Cameron Schoffman, John Schoffman, Destin Stauffer, and David Wroblewski.

Both teams look strong after their opening weekend. This upcoming season looks to be a good one.
