Kent School alums retake the rink


KENT — On Saturday, Feb. 24, Kent School alumni hockey players reunited for a game on their old home rink. 

More than 50 alumni came to the event, with 37 of them registered to play hockey alongside the current varsity seniors. The players were randomly assorted and chosen to play on either the blue team or the white team.

The graduation class years ranged from the outgoing class of 2024 to the oldest, John Drinker, class of 1969. 

Teams were welcomed by Dale Reinhardt, boys varsity hockey coach, and took to the ice to start the first of two 35-minute halves. All the players showed great skills on the ice regardless of age, skating and handling the puck as adeptly as ever. 

Thankfully, crushing, aggressive body checks were kept off the program. 

Scoring was not the most important part of the day, though the blue team managed a 9-4 victory. This was a day for reuniting with teammates, classmates and friends.

The good cheer and happiness on every participant’s face was a testament that the day was a much-loved success.

Later that day, Kent’s varsity boys hockey team went on to win its final regular season match 11-2 against Choate Rosemary Hall.
