Yampah Mountain set for first game in Garfield County

For the first time in Garfield County history, the Yampah Mountain Grizzlies high school hockey program will host its first Colorado High School Athletic Association event at the Glenwood Rec Center, at 7:30 p.m. Friday against the Cheyenne Mountain Indians junior varsity squad.

Playing a junior varsity schedule for the first two years of existence before jumping to varsity competition, the Grizzlies high school program is led by head coach Tim Cota, and senior Jake Fegan (goaltender) and junior alternate captains Alec Sloan and Sam Liotta.

Friday’s event at the Glenwood Rec Center includes the following promotions from Yampah Mountain: Grizzly Pin Night, in which all players wearing their Grizzly home (light) jersey will receive a new Grizzly Hockey lapel pin for free; 50/50 Grizzly Raffle with $1 tickets (Fifty percent of the winnings will go to the winner, while 50 percent will go to the club. The drawing will take place during intermission between periods two and three); Grizzly Russo’s Night: mention Grizzly Hockey and receive a 10 percent discount between 5 p.m. and closing; everyone is encouraged to wear their favorite hockey jersey gear; new Grizzly stocking hats will be available for purchase; live performance of the national anthem; and a special guest announcer for pre-game line-up and scoring.

The Grizzlies junior varsity team will play all of its home games at the Glenwood Rec Center ice rink, which also serves as the home of the Glenwood Grizzlies youth hockey program.

Seating for the event is limited due to bleacher space, but there is plenty of standing room to take in the first high school hockey game in Garfield County.
