    🏒 Carolina Sled Hockey’s Journey at the 2024 USA Hockey Sled National Championships 🏒

    Carolina Sled Hockey recently embarked on an unforgettable journey to the 2024 USA Hockey Sled National Championships held in Westchester, PA. It was a weekend filled with exhilarating matches, fierce competition, and unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime.

    Day 1 of the tournament kicked off with an exciting showdown against our SESHL rival, the Orlando Sled Bears. The team started off on the right foot, securing a thrilling 5-2 victory and setting the tone for the rest of the tournament.

    However, Day 2 presented a tougher challenge as we faced off against the Nashville Sled Preds. Despite our best efforts, the game didn’t go as planned, and we fell short with a 3-1 loss. Nevertheless, our spirits remained high as we knew there was still more hockey to be played.

    Day 3 brought a must-win scenario for Carolina as we squared off against the San Diego Ducks. With determination and grit, the team delivered a stellar performance, clinching a crucial 2-0 victory and keeping our championship hopes alive.

    Although fate ultimately did not favor us in the quest for the Championship game, we walked away from the tournament with our heads held high. Every member of the team gave their all on the ice, showcasing incredible skill, teamwork, and sportsmanship throughout the competition.

    As the final buzzer sounded, emotions ran high, especially for #8 Kai Howard, who played his last game in a Carolina Sled Hockey jersey. Kai’s contributions to the team have been immeasurable, and his stellar performance earned him the well-deserved MVP belt. We wish Kai the best of luck in his future endeavors and know that he will continue to shine wherever his hockey journey takes him.

    Additionally, #6 Chris Baucom also made his mark on the tournament, securing the MVP belt in game 1 with an impressive hat-trick performance.

    Despite the challenges and setbacks, the camaraderie, passion, and determination displayed by the Carolina Sled Hockey team truly exemplified the spirit of the sport. We are immensely proud of our team and grateful for the unwavering support of our family, friends, and community.

    Until next time, Carolina Sled Hockey continues to push forward, united in our love for the game and our commitment to excellence. Let’s keep chasing our dreams and making memories on the ice!
