St. Joseph Immaculate Heart of Mary School, along with other area schools, attended a Youngstown Phantoms hockey game on Wednesday, Feb. 27 at the Covelli Centre for the Hockey for Health School Day Game. Students were able to watch the fast-paced action of a hockey game as well as learn the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle. During the game, video clips were shown promoting exercise and healthy eating. Everyone in attendance danced, high-fived, bumped and tossed beach balls through the crowd.
It was a special day for Cadence Pounds and Isabella Herner as they celebrated their birthdays at the hockey rink. Cadence was announced with the Phantoms' staring lineup because she is a member of the youth hockey team. Isabella shared her birthday celebration with fellow schoolmate Dante Walker, giving him her ride on the zamboni between the first and second periods of the hockey game. When asked how the ride was Dante exclaimed, "That was awesome!"
Fourth-grader Patrick Faloon represented SJIHM in the race of cars between the first and second periods. Each school had a student drive a mini car on the ice labeled with their school's name and raced around the rink. Some students' cars, including Patrick's, needed Phantoms cheerleaders' power.
