The Thompson Rivers University Titans hockey team will make its debut tonight, Sept. 27, at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.
This will be the first time TRU has had a sports team competing out of the Williams Lake Campus.
The team will compete in the men’s recreational division at the CMRC. Players are required to take at least one course at TRU to meet the qualifications.
The team is led by coach Mike Shields and manager Jacquie Johnston, who both said they are excited to welcome the team.
“It’s great to have a hockey team at TRU,” said Johnston, who is also the marketing and recruitment co-ordinator at TRU Williams Lake.
“It brings a sense of excitement to campus and creates camaraderie among the students.
“We couldn’t have done it without the support from Aboriginal Services and the sponsorship from Heartland Toyota.”
Puck drop is tonight at 9:15 p.m. at the CMRC and Johnston is inviting anyone interested to come watch the Titans play.
