The Polar Bears find themselves in an interesting position with back-to-back-to back games this weekend, taking on three different competitors in exactly 36 hours. With the Sunday finale at 7:30 a.m. against UC Santa Cruz — a mere six hours after their Saturday game in San Francisco— players and fans alike will need somewhere to go to wind down after all the excitement at Snoopy’s Home Ice.
And what better place than at longtime sponsor, Westside Bar and Grill.
With a big weekend of hockey up ahead as the SRJC Hockey team takes on the University of Oregon Nov. 10-11, the Polar Bears are blabbing about the best kept secret at Snoopy’s Home Ice for those who want a little luxury in their viewing experience.
The Hospitality Suite at Snoopy’s Home Ice gives fans an opportunity to watch the team from a unique advantage point. For $25, fans can buy a seat in the exclusive sky box above the home goal. The $25 ticket includes admission to the game, three drink coupons for either beer or wine, and food.
SANTA ROSA, CALIFORNIA (November 8, 2017): The Santa Rosa Junior College Hockey team is proud to announce that it will host two very important charity/awareness events during its set of home games versus the University of Oregon Nov. 10-11 at Snoopy’s Home Ice. SRJC will celebrate its Cancer Awareness game Friday, followed with a Veteran’s Day dedication the next night.
With the Sonoma County fires forcing cancellation of the team’s annual Cancer Awareness game last month, SRJC has rescheduled this beloved event for the first game of the home stand Nov. 10.
The Polar Bears have no time to dwell on their 13-3 opening night loss to UC Berkeley Sept. 23. After just a few days to work out the kinks, SRJC is headed to the State of Hockey in a make or break road trip.
SRJC plays four teams in four days in its first-ever trip to Minnesota Sept. 28-Oct. 1. The team is scheduled to face the University of St. Thomas (9/28), Minnesota State University, Mankato (9/29), the University of Minnesota (9/30) and St. Cloud State University (10/1).
All four teams are American Collegiate Hockey Association Division II clubs from universities that host Division I NCAA hockey teams. These schools are also members of the Western Collegiate Club Hockey Association (WCCHA), a subdivision of the ACHA that is similar to the Polar Bears’ own Pacific Collegiate Hockey Association.
SANTA ROSA, CALIFORNIA (Sept. 26, 2017): After the late addition of a few key pieces just days before the Polar Bear’ first official game of the 2017-18 season Sept. 23, first-year head coach Nate Panek is ready to officially announce his roster for the first half of the season.
Seventeen players will suit up for SRJC— a slightly smaller roster to begin the year than what the Polar Bears are used to. But with a healthy mix of returning and new players, SRJC is pretty primed for a comeback after the less-than-stellar end to the previous season.
Last year’s points leader David Lundgren highlights a healthy list of 10 forwards. This is his fourth semester with the team, and will no doubt anchor SRJC’s top lines, and quite possibly, defense as well. Lundgren is one of four returning Polar Bears who switch between both positions. His leadership, along with returning players John Zerbe and Anthony Giampaoli, is paramount to the success of first-year players Mike Anderson, Blake Coleman, Auston Ghirardelli, Steven McDowell, Bobby Rogers, Marco Schamoni and Jacob Yaden.
