Salisbury and Kent hockey teams to face off at Michigan Stadium
The Salisbury School and Kent School varsity hockey teams will travel to Ann Arbor, Mich., to play each other in an outdoor game at historic Michigan Stadium at the University of Michigan. The game will take place on Friday, Dec. 10, at 10 a.m.
Kent is coached by former Michigan Wolverine Matt Herr.
Players on both teams will then have a chance to watch a historic match between the University of Michigan hockey team and Michigan State in front of what is expected to be a record-breaking crowd of more than 117,000 fans. The Michigan vs. MSU game is being promoted as â€œThe Big Chill at the Big House.â€ The stadium was recently renovated.
Salisburyâ€™s Head Varsity Coach Andrew Will said, â€œThis is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for our kids and they canâ€™t wait to play this outdoor game at the Big House. Weâ€™re extremely appreciative of Kent for offering us this opportunity, and itâ€™s going to be an amazing weekend.â€
